'Frustrated' Kieron Morris Keen to Secure a Starting Spot

Walsall winger Kieron Morris has spoken to the press following Saturday's last-gasp victory over Bristol Rovers, which saw the Hereford-born man come off the bench and bag a 94th minute winner to continue the Saddlers' unbeaten away run, and discussed his determination to secure a spot in the starting line-up.
The 24-year-old has made eleven first-team appearances so far this season but has struggled to earn a spot in the starting XI as summer signings Josh Ginnelly and Zeli Ismail continue to lead the line, and has admitted that he is frustrated to be sitting on the sidelines.

Speaking via the Express & Star, Kieron said; "I have been frustrated – especially with the form I have shown this season. Getting taken out the team is not nice and I didn’t think I deserved to come out.

"It’s hard because we have got good players on the wing in Zeli and Josh. But I’m glad I got on and scored at Bristol. Now it’s up to me to keep showing the manager what I can do."

The winger, who has made over one-hundred and fifty first-team appearances since he broke into the side in 2013, also admitted he was desperate to get his chance on Saturday afternoon, especially as the Saddlers were struggling to break down Darrell Clarke’s well-drilled side.

He added; "We weren’t taking our chances and I felt a couple of players looked tired – I could see that watching from the side. When I came on I knew I had a good 15 minutes to make an impact on the game. I think I did that."

Morris’ goal lifted the Saddlers back into the Play-Off places and led to wild scenes of celebration from both the players and the travelling fans, and the winger said seeing the ball hit the back of the net was an incredible feeling.

Kieron continued; "It was a mad – I couldn’t believe it. It was good play from the boys. Dobbo had the ball in the box and he said he just saw me out the corner of his eye.

"I was this flash of red. He was going to shoot but he played me in and I was delighted to put it in. I wanted to run over to the fans and celebrate with them but Josh Gordon grabbed me and then everyone piled on top of me.

"But you could see how happy we all were to get the win ­– you could see just what it means to us."
