Morris: ‘It was mad, crazy!'

8 October 2018

Super-sub Kieron Morris spoke of his joy after scoring a last-gasp winner in the Saddlers’ dramatic 1-0 success at Bristol Rovers.

The midfielder struck in the fourth minute of injury time to earn the Saddlers a first win in three matches and move Dean Keates’ men up to fifth in League One.

“It was mad, crazy! I couldn’t believe it,” said a delighted Morris.

“It was good play from the boys. Dobbo [George Dobson] came into the box and said he just saw me out the corner of his eye. I was just this flash of red.

“He was going to shoot but he played me in and I was delighted to be able to put it in and score the winner in 94th minute.

“It went through the keeper’s legs and you need that luck sometimes.

“I was going to run over to the fans because I wanted to celebrate with them but Josh Gordon grabbed me and then everyone piled on top of me.

“You could see how happy we all were to get the win.

“I thought Bristol played well, but I think we deserved the win. We weren’t taking our chances and I felt a couple of players looked tired – I could see that watching on the side.

“When I came on I knew I had to make an impact on the game – and I thought I did that.”

It was Morris' fourth goal of the campaign - meaning he has already beaten last season's tally.

"My goal record this season is very good, especially compared to last year," said the 24-year-old.

"I scored three all season but I’ve already got four and we’re only two months into the season.

"I feel on form and I feel more confident in front of goal – especially after the strikes against Wimbldeon and Macclesfield.

"I’m feeling confident and the staff are telling me to get more shots off."
