Goalscorer Morris looks back on the away win

Shrewsbury Town Forward Carlton Morris was delighted to score his second Town goal in the 2-1 win over Gillingham.

Morris scored the first goal with a powerful shot from 10 yards out.

It took Town five hours to get to Gillingham on Friday, but Carlton admitted it was worth it.

“It was a long way to travel yesterday but it was 100% worth it and it will be a better journey back”, Morris smiled.

“It wasn't the best display in my opinion and we can perform better than that, but good teams go to places, don't perform and still come home with three points.”

Morris was delighted to get back on the scoresheet after being denied a goal at Oxford last week.

“I've been working hard on the training ground”, Carlton admitted.

“I've been working on quick chances where you haven't got much time to react, you have to hit the target and thankfully that's what I did.

“It was definitely in last week, so I was telling myself that my left foot was due a goal this week and thankfully I grabbed another.”

Alex Rodman scored the other Town goal, whilst Ben Gofrey also shone and Carlton paid tribute to the pair.

"Rodders has been a revelation so far", Morris said.

"He can run all day. Trying to keep up with him in running sessions is impossible and he shows that up and down the wing every week.

"I knew Ben well and I was pleased when the Gaffer was able to secure his services here because although he's young he's got experience with York and he's a good young player."

"You can't get carried away", said Carlton.

"If individuals start getting carried away that's when we start to lose our head bit. We've got to not get ahead of ourselves, remain humble and keep working hard."
