Jacob Murphy makes Coventry debut

CARLTON Morris netted his first goal for Hamilton Academical as they thrashed Dundee United 4-0 on Saturday.

Academy graduate Morris moved on a season-long loan to Alex Neil’s former team after agreeing a new-two year contract with the Canaries in July.

In his first start for the Scottish Premiership outfit, Morris scored their third goal as Martin Canning’s side eased to victory at New Douglas Park.

Morris said afterwards: “I definitely feel there is more to come – from myself and also from the team as a whole. Once I get to know my team-mates more, especially the creative players in midfield, the more I will be able to score goals and the more games we will win.

Grreeeeat Saturday over the moon with the result and a full debut goal for @acciesfc now for family time, have a good weekend 🔴⚪️♥️

“It was great to get my first goal to get off the mark. I haven’t set any specific targets in terms of the number of goals I want, but I’d certainly be happy if I kept scoring in every other game.”

Jacob Murphy completed a season-long temporary move to Coventry City on Friday in time to make his Sky Blues bow at the weekend.

The 20-year-old replaced James Maddison in the 63rd minute, with Tony Mowbray’s team securing an impressive 4-0 win against Millwall at The Den.

Great game to make my debut in! The boys played some serious football 🔥💥 pleasure to watch and then be involved in! @Coventry_City#PUSB

Elsewhere in Sky Bet League One, Remi Matthews had to settle for spot among the substitutes as Jon McLaughlin was restored as number one for Burton Albion’s 1-0 reverse at Barnsley.

Matthews had followed up his debut against Scunthorpe United by keeping goal in their shock Capital One Cup triumph at Bolton Wanderers last Tuesday.
