Adam Morgan scored his first goal of the season after he was given his chance to start for FC Halifax Town away at Solihull Moors on Saturday.
The goal came inside half an hour after Matty Kosylo slid a cross in for Morgan to tap home.
The forward spoke of his delight for the goal but put all emphasis on the result.
“Yeah, nice to get a goal but it was more important to get the three points, I think we have put in a professional performance today, done what we needed to do so we are really pleased.”
Morgan spoke about the team’s performance and how the tactics won the game for the Shaymen.
“Personally, for me, with having not so many minutes was tough because the three in midfield we had to follow them around a lot, but I think the lads, everyone was a standout performer today and we deserve the result.”
The former Liverpool forward has found it tough to cement a place in Billy Heath’s starting lineup and he spoke about how he has got in and how he hopes to stay in the starting eleven.
“The gaffer has shown faith in me today and I am glad that I could repay him in a small way. I’m hoping that I can keep this form going because I believe that I have done well in pre-season. I’ve been asking for my chance for some time and now I have got it then I am happy to repay him.”
Morgan spoke about the players that did not have a physical impact on the game at Solihull but he believes that there are some players that deserve credit for their support of the team, and how it helps the players.
“We have got great players here, look we’ve got Tommo, top player. He didn’t play today but he was the one standing shouting for the lads at the end.
“We’ve got Tommy Nicholson, he has not featured because Sam has been in such great form as well.
It is a real team game, and a team effort. It doesn’t matter who plays it’s just important that we win.”
Come to the MBi Shay Stadium for our next match at home to Guiseley AFC in front of the BT Sport cameras to see if Morgan and the team can add to what was an important victory against Solihull Moors.
