Versatile performer eager to put on a show
Aaron Morris says that Wimbledon’s players must take responsibility for last Saturday’s “unacceptable” display and they owe Dons supporters a big performance at Portsmouth tomorrow.
Since joining the Dons in January, Morris has been impressed by AFC Wimbledon’s loyal following and with 2,000 away tickets having been sold for the trip to Fratton Park he’s eager to put on a show for them.
Speaking to Rob Cornell on Dons Player, he said: “It spurs you on when there’s a lot of fans behind you because you want to produce a performance for them. For 2,000 fans to be making the trip is a great achievement and a testament to the club and the fans themselves. It was an unacceptable performance against Rochdale and we owe it to the fans to be playing better. The manager does everything for us the best that he can and he’s as good as gold, but we let him down on Saturday.
“It was a case of ironing a few things out earlier in the week. The players got a few things off their chests and the coaching staff got their points across. We were raring to go for Tuesday so were disappointed that the game was off, but now we move on to Saturday and we want a big performance.”
Morris has filled several different positions, including both full-back positions and midfield roles, since his arrival and he’s prepared to continue doing that for the good of the team.
“We’ve had a few blows with the likes of Andy Frampton and Callum Kennedy getting injured so the manager has had to shuffle things around a bit,” Morris added. “But I’m a versatile player and I’ll play wherever I’m needed. Linking-up with Darren Jones again has been good because he’s an experienced player. It’s a big game on Saturday and we will put things right. Providing we do the basics right, then we will be fine.”
