Marvin raring to get going again

2 November 2012

Striker hoping to be involved in FA Cup game

Saturday cannot come quickly enough for Shrewsbury Town's top scorer Marvin Morgan who is raring to go again now that he's free of suspension.
The five-goal striker was forced to sit out the home games with Yeovil and Colchester following his recent red card at Fratton Park just seconds after scoring against Portsmouth.
But he's now available for selection again and admits he would love to play a part in this weekend's FA Cup first round clash at Hereford United.
"It's been frustrating as no-one likes getting suspended and missing games," said Morgan. "But I'm back now and hopefully I can get back into the team.
"The gaffer probably knows who's going to play on Saturday. All I can do is work hard in training like I have been.
"I forgot about Hereford being a non-League side now. There's a lot on it as it's a derby so it's going to be an interesting game.

"I can't wait for it whether I'm on the bench or if I'm starting. I'm going to give it 100 per cent as normal and see what happens."
Morgan has enjoyed some memorable moments in the League Cup, notably last season when he scored for Shrewsbury to help them pull off upsets against higher division Derby County and Swansea City, but the FA Cup has not been so productive for him.
"Going back to my non-League days when I was at Yeading, I was cup-tied when we played Newcastle so that wasn't nice," he recalled. "The following year we played Nottingham Forest and lost 5-0.
"Since then I've been on the end of a couple of giantkillings when I was at Aldershot in losing to a couple of non-League teams.
"I haven't had good times in the FA Cup so I'm hoping we can do something Saturday and get in the hat for the next round."
