Morris looks ahead to Wimbledon clash
Shrewsbury Town midfielder Bryn Morris has urged his fellow players to remain positive ahead of tomorrow’s game against AFC Wimbledon.
Town could only manage a draw against Northampton Town on Tuesday night, a result Bryn wasn’t overly pleased with, but he believes it’s important to move on quickly.
“It was disappointing not to get all three points, but at the end of the day we haven’t got beat”, Morris told the Press.
“It’s another point on the board, we have to take the positives and move onto the next game. We’re not going to win every game and there’s going to be ups and downs between now and the end of the season, so take the point and move on.
“We didn’t start as quickly as we would have like on Tuesday, but we move to the next game now and hopefully we don’t make those mistakes again.
With Ben Godfrey out injured and Abu Ogogo now suspended for four matches, Morris is likely to see more game time over the next few weeks and he is determined to take his opportunity.
“It’s another opportunity for me to go out there and show what I can do”, said Bryn.
“I’ve said before that there will be opportunities before the end of the season and obviously it’s come now, so hopefully I get a few more games than what I have done.
“Personally, I just want to go out there and do my best for the team. I’ve kept myself in good shape physically, but it’s also the mental side of being ready for the opportunity to come, so now it’s time to step up.
“I’m not going to put any pressure on myself before when I’ve played before I’ve done well enough, so I’m pleased that there’s another opportunity for me to play.”
AFC Wimbledon are currently 19th in Sky Bet League One but Bryn believes that the Northampton game showed that every game is tough at this stage in the campaign.
“I don’t think there’s any easy games now because towards the end of the season people down the bottom are battling and fighting to stay in the league”, said Bryn.
“We are obviously trying to get as many points as possible to try and get automatic, but even if we end up in the Play-Off we’ve got to try and give ourselves the best momentum going into it.”
