Kieron Morris is determined to prove to Saddlers boss Dean Keates that he deserves a regular starting berth.
The 24-year-old came off the bench to score a 94th-minute winner at Bristol Rovers – his fourth goal of the campaign.
But the midfielder admits it has been a frustrating few weeks, having been an unused substitute in the Saddlers’ previous three matches.
After making the difference on Saturday, Morris is keen to show his worth again tonight when the Saddlers host Middlesbrough U21s in the Checkatrade Trophy.
“I have been frustrated – especially with the form I have shown this season,” said Morris.
“Getting taken out is not nice.
“It’s hard because we have got good players on the wings this season in Zeli Ismail and Josh Ginnelly.
“It’s hard to get in, but I didn’t think I deserved to come out. But it is what it is, I’m glad I got on and scored against Bristol Rovers.
“All I can keep doing is training hard and showing the manager what I can do. Hopefully I can do that again tonight.
“I need to have a good performance and take that on. I want to get back in the team.”
