Boss Delighted With His Attacking Options

7 August 2022

Alex Morris reserved special praise for the four-pronged attack that started Saturday's 3-0 victory over Harrogate Town.

Dan Agyei grabbed his second of the season from close range; Callum Ainley contributed his third assist; and tireless running from Bassala Sambou and Lachlan Brook denied the visitors a second's peace.

And with Courtney Baker-Richardson coming off the bench to grab his first goal for the club, and Christopher Long working his way back from injury, the gaffer is pleased with the ammo he has got in the squad.

Alex said: "Those Dan Agyei goals are more satisfying for us as a coaching staff than the ones where he might go past three or four players and curl one in the top corner. When he ends up on the goal line scoring - that's want to see from him, and the same from the other forwards too.

"When he is on top of his game, Bass causes mayhem. He’s been working hard throughout the summer on areas of his game which have allowed him to get in the team. He wants to play through the middle, he sees that as his position and perhaps we do as well.

"But the more areas of the pitch that you can be selected for the more it will benefit you, because footballers should just concern themselves with playing games of football.

"He’s picked up the nuances of playing that role on the left very well, and the effort levels from him, Dan Agyei and Lachlan Brook in the first half allowed Callum Ainley to get plenty of room in the first half.

"If you stick Callum in the right area of the pitch, where he is most comfortable, give him a bit of belief, confidence and love, he is above this level.

"He’s already got three or four assists and we are hoping he will add goals to that too. If he can do that, he is going to have a very fruitful season and it will benefit all of us."
