CARLTON MORRIS: CARROW ROAD BUZZ IS KEY

16 November 2016

Striker nets double to see off the Bhoys

TWO-GOAL Carlton Morris was pleased to add to his 'giant-killing' list after starring in Wednesday night's Premier League International Cup victory over Celtic at Carrow Road for Norwich City Under-23s.

The forward capped off an impressive personal performance with a brace against the Bhoys, putting his side on the verge of the knockout stages of the competition in the process.

Having played a prominent role in the Canaries' march to the 2013 FA Youth Cup title, Morris is no stranger to cup success, and told BBC Radio Norfolk after the game: "It's a really good result for us.

"In my time at Norwich we've done a bit of giant-killing so it's good to beat another top team. We weren't 100 per cent at it in the first half but we really came out in the second half.

"The gaffer [Alex Neil] came in at half-time and said a few words. That really showed, and we got the two goals we needed to kill the game off.

"Playing these games at Carrow Road gives it a special atmosphere. We know the special vibe is always going to be there and it gives the matches a bit more of a buzz."

Morris knows he has to remain patient in his pursuit of opportunities among City's senior side, while continuing to take advantage of those given to him while representing the Development Squad.

"There's a lot of competition at this level at the moment, because it's a good standard," he explained.

"I just want to do the best I can and help the [Academy] team to win. I know I've got to be patient and try to impress the first team staff as much as I can.

"I've got to wait for my chance, then take it when it comes along."
