Speaking after our 1-1 draw with Huddersfield Town, goal scorer Carlton Morris believes Barnsley were unlucky not to come away with a victory from the Yorkshire derby.

In a relatively even encounter at Oakwell, the Reds retained possession well and created a good number of openings as we continue to make progress under Poya Asbaghi.

“We’re a bit unfortunate not to have all three points, I think,” reflected Morris. “Huddersfield scored against the run of play, in my opinion; we looked strong from the start and went from strength to strength.

“Heads didn’t drop when their goal went in and we responded really well, and I think we had better chances in the game and feel a bit disappointed coming away with a point.”

Leading up to the fixture, it was the first time that our new Head Coach had had an extended period of time to work with the squad on the training ground since arriving from Sweden.

And with a week until our next assignment at Preston North End, it is another opportunity for Asbaghi to further implement his style and philosophy on the Reds.

“We’ve worked very hard over the last week and having Saturday-Saturday games has given the new manager a chance to drill us,” insisted Morris. “It’s really good because the lads are starting to buy into it and feel a structure.

“He used a good analogy about building a house and starting with the foundations, and I think you can see that now on the pitch – it’s not just about the point, it’s about the performance to give the lads confidence and we know we can start winning games.”

“I can speak on behalf of the team that we’re really excited to get in next week and work hard and build on what we’ve worked on for the past couple of weeks.”

Despite not picking up the points that our play merited, it was a productive afternoon for our forward on a personal note as he bagged his first goal of the campaign having suffered a knee injury just two games in.

Morris is gradually getting back to his best, and Reds supporters know how much of a handful he can be when firing on all cylinders.

“It’s been a tough one, really,” admitted the 25-year-old. “Three months out is no walk in the park to get back in your stride and it’s almost like you’re starting from scratch.

“But I’m starting to feel like myself and hopefully I showed that.”
