Fresh from making his Reds debut at the weekend, Carlton Morris spoke with the press via Zoom to help preview tomorrow night's trip to Watford.

Signed at the start of the transfer window from Norwich City, the 25-year-old forward made his first Reds appearance as a second half substitute in Saturday night's defeat against Swansea City. 

Leaving Carrow Road on a permanent basis after a string of loan spells, the frontman feels he's in the right place to further his career.

“I’ve always felt Barnsley would be quite a good fit for me.” He told us.

“Having friends who’ve played here in the past, they’d told me what it was like. I even came up and watched a game a couple of years ago when Cam McGeehan was at the club. I took in the atmosphere at Oakwell and saw what the club was about.

“I think it’s a really good club for me.

“It’s great to know I’ve got somewhere where I’m going to be settled and in the same spot for a while. I’ve been moving around a lot, and it’s not easy. Having to try and settle down in a new area all the time isn’t ideal. 

“It’s nice to find a home here now and concentrate purely on the football, because that’s the most important thing.”

Morris feels he is capable of performing in the Championship and says he will be giving it his all to make his mark for the Reds.

Looking ahead to tomorrow night where he could be in line for his full debut, the big man suggests Barnsley go there knowing another positive result against the Hornets is possible.

He told iFollow Barnsley: “I feel like I’m definitely good enough to play at this level. I’ve felt that for a while if I’m honest, but I’ve not really had that chance. But now I’m here I will be doing everything in my power to grab the opportunity with both hands.

“I felt Saturday night’s result was a tough one for the boys to take, but it was nice for me to get on and feel involved in the Barnsley red for the first time. 

“I think we’ll go to Watford with confidence, taking it as serious as we do any game and hopefully we can come away with another win.”
