Carlton Morris Post West Ham United

Morris looks back on the FA Cup clash with West Ham

Shrewsbury Town Striker Carlton Morris admitted he enjoyed the experience of playing against West Ham on Sunday.

Town drew 0-0 with their Premier League opposition and will now travel to the London Stadium for a replay.

Carlton was pleased with how Shrewsbury played and felt they deserved more from the game.

“It was good”, Morris told the Press

“The atmosphere, as you saw, was sensational – I wish we had that every week – but it an enjoyable game and we put in a decent performance overall I think.

“In my opinion I think we should have gone on and won the game, but that’s football, it doesn’t happen for you sometimes, but it’s good that we could put in a performance like we did.

“I think it shows you how far we’ve come that we are disappointed to come away with a draw against a Premier League team.”

Town had a couple of opportunities to score, but Carlton was particularly impressed with how the midfield got into the faces of the opposition.

“There’s a lot of names and a lot of faces, but at the end of the day everyone’s human beings out on the football pitch and that’s how we treat them”, Carlton said.

“We were up on them and rattling them the whole game. Abs, Nolo and Ben were getting tight in midfield for 90 minutes, which is what we do week in week out, and that’s what’s brought us success, so hopefully we can continue doing that.

“There were a couple of moments in the game where we might have scored, but that’s football and people don’t take their chances sometimes. Nolo a couple of weeks ago scored the winner for us here, so I won’t chew his head off too much about it.”

The replay will take place in the week beginning the 15th January and Carlton is looking to go there and cause an upset.

“It’s exciting but it’s just another game”, said Morris.

“We will go there, get our heads down, press up on them and see what we can do. We showed that we can go toe to toe with them and even outperform them, so I don’t see why we can’t go to their place and do the same thing.”
