Loan Round-Up: Morris scores outstanding solo goal

7 December 2020

Norwich City loanee Carlton Morris scored one of the weekend’s finest goals for Milton Keynes Dons on the weekend.

Picking the ball up inside his own half, Morris charged forward with the ball, beyond the Accrington Stanley midfield and defence, before putting it in the back of the net.

Three days prior, Morris had featured in a 1-0 win away to Charlton Athletic for Russell Martin’s side, the striker making his 100th career league start.

Returning from injury in the same game was City loanee Akin Famewo, who came on in the 66th minute for the Addicks.
