Nuneaton Town midfielder David Morgan is looking forward to getting back onto home soil on Saturday as we turn our attention to Buildbase FA Trophy matters with the visit of York City.

Having suffered successive defeats on our travels, we’ll be going all out to get back into winning ways and in doing so make it into the last eight of the competition.nuneaton

“We’re all looking forward to the game,” said the former Northern Ireland Under-21 International. “After the manner of the defeats in our last two games, this is a chance for us to start putting things right.

“It’s important that we put on a good show and do the things that served us so well during our unbeaten run.

“There’s not much difference between our League and the level above to be honest, so were not worrying too much about them being from a higher League. What we have to do is concentrate on our own game and making sure that we give it our all.

“The last two matches have been disappointing in terms of the results but the FA Trophy will provide a nice distraction for us. It’s a different mindset in these type of games and we want to get the job done at the first attempt.

“The mood around the place is upbeat. I don’t think that we’ve played too badly in the last two games and obviously prior to that we were nine unbeaten, so there is a lot for us to be positive about.

“I think the supporters are also buying into what we are trying to do here and the backing that they have given us recently has been superb.

“Of course they want to see attractive football along with the results to match and we’ve been giving them that. Hopefully this, combined with the admission prices being reduced, will mean that we have a large and vocal crowd here to create the kind of atmosphere that befits the occasion.”

Morgan admitted that he is enjoying his football in the new role that he has been given under Tommy Wright.

“I get to see a lot of the ball and I’m encouraged to get forward a bit more than previously,” he continued. “The Gaffer has come in with his own ideas on how he wants us to do things and it’s up to the players to carry out his instructions.

“I’m happy with my performances but the most important thing is what I do for the team rather than myself personally. I want to stay in the team so hopefully I can continue making a contribution.”
