Morris reflects on 'massive' Everton triumph

Match-winner Carlton Morris paid tribute to the Town support after Saturday’s 2-1 win over Everton secured our first Premier League win of the season.


The striker, who hit 20 goals last season to help the Hatters to promotion, scored his first from open play this term when slamming home a wonderful first-time finish to double the lead on the half-hour.

“It’s a massive win and for us to be able to give that back to the fans, who have stuck with us so loyally, and go over to them at the end it means a lot.

“It brings a massive smile to my face to give them back what they deserve. They were there at Exeter – that's a long old trip, and we’ll continue to pay them back as much as we can.”

On his goal, the striker said: “It’s good to get the first from open play, I don’t want to be just a penalty merchant.

“It was important for us to score the first goal, we know we haven’t been that prolific and haven’t taken our chances this season so to score two quick goals, we executed the game plan perfectly.”

The Hatters return to action on Tuesday when Burnley visit Kenilworth Road with all eyes now on obtaining a first home win of the campaign.

“The games are coming thick and fast,” said Morris. “It’s another huge game, we’ll have home advantage which we will relish.

“There were a lot of positives we can take from this, and there are things we need to learn too. But we’re learning every game and hopefully we can continue that trend on Tuesday.”
