Loanee striker looking forward to facing his former club
Shrewsbury Town striker Carlton Morris is looking to kick-on after scoring his first Town goal against Rochdale last weekend.
Morris has been a regular starter so far this season as Town have won three out of three in the League.
“Obviously we’ve started well, but no one is getting ahead of themselves”, Morris said.
“My experience has been very good so far and I hope that I can keep it up. It was good to get the monkey off my back of scoring the first goal and hopefully I can kick-on now and score more goals, but more importantly win games.
“The manager seems to have a good fan and seems to be working, but, like I say, we aren’t getting ahead of ourselves, we are taking each game as it comes and we will see how far we can go.”
Morris believes there is a good feeling amongst the squad and they are looking to prove people wrong this season.
“I haven’t been here long, but from what I’ve gathered it’s a really tight knit group”, said Carlton.
“We’ve got some good boys here, it’s a humble group and we’ve got some good footballers as well, but we are being realistic with it.
“Sometimes it’s nice to be written off because you get to go out and prove people wrong. We have done that so far and hopefully we can continue to do so.
“It’s a bubbly atmosphere around here at the moment, but it’s only three games into a 46 game season, so we are just taking it one game at a time and we will see what we can do.”
This weekend Carlton will be lining-up against a former club, after spending time on-loan there during the 2014-15 season, and he believes it could be Town’s toughest game yet.
“I think it will be a good spectacle”, said Carlton.
“We are both teams that like to get the ball down and pass on a big pitch at the Kassam Stadium, so I think it will be a good game for the neutral and hopefully for us.
“It will be a big test for us. We’ve had tough games, Wimbledon away isn’t an easy place to go, but I think Oxford away will be a big test for us and hopefully one we can overcome.”
