Morris: We've hit a turning point

8 October 2021

Kieron Morris says the Tranmere Rovers squad have hit a turning point, having picked up seven points in the last three Sky Bet League Two games.

Speaking ahead of Friday night’s fixture against Colchester United, Morris says the confidence within the squad is growing.

He said: “From the start of the season with new players coming in, it’s always hard to gel as a squad. Now you can see the turning point has finally come.

“I think we’ve had seven points in the last three games, you can see there’s confidence in the team and we’re building.”

And the 27-year-old is relishing to be back playing further up the pitch, having helped out in other positions earlier in the season due to injuries.

“I played out of position for the first couple of games due to injuries. It’s good to be playing further up the pitch now, in a central midfield role. I feel it’s more suitable for the sort of player I am.

“Getting two assists and a goal in the last three games, I’m delighted. That’s the sort of player I am, I like to get on the ball and play higher up the pitch.

“Being able to create more opportunities and chances, and I like to get a shot at goal. When I see the ball round the edge of the box, I’m getting my shots off now.”

Morris got off the mark this season with a penalty against Salford last month, and will hope to add a few more goals to his tally as the season goes on.

“I always aim for double figures, but unfortunately it didn’t go like that last year. Seven, I was quite happy with though, especially being in and out of the team.

“This year, playing well and trying to stay in the team, I’m trying to build on that and get more goals. Hopefully get towards double figures if I can, but I’ll be happy with seven or eight goals.”
