After scoring for the third game running, Carlton Morris asserted that the result is more important than personal glory.
Our January signing netted a deserved winner midway through the second half as Barnsley beat Bristol City 1-0 at Ashton Gate on Saturday afternoon.
“Three wins in three in the more important thing, but it’s nice – especially when they’re backed up by wins," stated Morris.
The forward took advantage of a goalmouth scramble following an Alex Mowatt corner, showing that poacher’s instinct to sweep home from close range.
He has now bagged against Brentford, Blackburn Rovers and the Robins in the space of a week, but fewer will be as simple as his effort in Wiltshire.
“I’ll take 20 of those a season!” exclaimed Morris, speaking to iFollow Barnsley. “That’s got to be one of my favourite ones so far just because it’s about trying to sniff out a chance. I had one previously when I slid Callum Brittain wide – I should have got him an assist and carried on my run into the box. But it was a good one.”
Results elsewhere in the Sky Bet Championship have now seen the Reds move within four points of the play-off positions with a game in hand on those above.
However, Morris has echoed his Head Coach’s sentiments, insisting that he and his teammates are just concentrating on the task at hand and seeing where it takes them.
“Me personally, my philosophy has always been the same as that; just take it one game at a time,” continued the 26-year-old. “I rarely know who we’re playing the game after the next one because I’m just focusing on the next game that’s coming up.
“The boys haven’t lacked confidence since I’ve come in. I’ve never seen a squad with this kind of cohesion; it’s been different class and confidence come from winning games, but good squads can manifest their own confidence. It’s a similar feeling going into most games, but we’ll definitely have a hop in our step now.”
