Morsy: “We Lacked that Cutting Edge"

Standing in for the suspended Ian Evatt, Sam Morsy put in a captain's performance in the 0-0 draw with Yeovil at the weekend.

However, the midfielder felt that the team should have won the game after being the better side for much of the match.

He said: “We’re a little bit disappointed not to have won the game. We were camped in their half, they had ten men behind the ball and unfortunately we couldn't break them down.

“We lacked that cutting edge. That’s where we missed the likes of Gary Roberts in that role. We were just a little bit short and needed that bit of magic to win us the game.”

Yeovil weren’t without chances in the game though, and the midfielder was pleased with the defensive work that earned his side a clean sheet.

“We allowed a few chances which can be said for any game,” said Morsy. “We’re always going to be vulnerable to the counter-attack when a team is pinned in but the positive is it’s a clean sheet and it gives us something to build on.

“We feel like we could have done better, that’s the disappointing thing, but again we’ll build on the clean sheet and try and get a few more wins.”

With a break in the league fixtures coming up, Morsy admits that the team is looking to win each game and build some momentum.

The midfielder said: “We’re going to take each game as it comes and focus on our game. Next week is the FA Cup and hopefully we can get through the next round. We need a win now so it’s easy to get yourself up for the game. Our scouts and the management will do their research on them and we’ll go there to win the game.” 

After playing his last game for the club, Daniel Johnson was singled out for special praise.

Morsy said: “Daniel has been a pleasure to play with. He’s been brilliant since he’s come here and we wish him all the best for the future.”
