Morison post-Luton | A well deserved three points

Bluebirds boss Steve Morison spoke to the press after his side recorded a 2-1 victory over Luton Town on Saturday afternoon.

"It feels excellent," he began. "I think it was a fantastic performance, and I think we dominated in all areas, with the ball and without the ball. The boys were excellent, and I'm really pleased for them.

"The conditions were terrible, and you could sense it in the ground. It was really tough, but we're trying to create a team that is willing to fight for each other, fight for the fans and for the football club, and you could see that today. It was a well deserved three points.

"I don't care whether we score in the first half or the second half, as long as we win the game of football, and do it in the way that we want to do it. Today we got the first goal, which was excellent, and apart from a ten minute period where they had a few moments, it was a really nice, controlled performance from the lads. I'm really pleased."

Sean Morrison

Sean Morrison came back into the starting eleven and scored the winning goal at Kenilworth Road, and Steve was full of praise for the City skipper, whilst also explaining his selection policy over the past weeks.

"It was a great team move, and he was there to put the ball in the back of the net. He was excellent, he knows what we're trying to do and he's on board with that. He had his moment today and it was fantastic."

He continued: "When we have three games in a week, regardless of results, I will continue to freshen things up. I did the same for my first three games - Sean played the first two games, and then I put Aden in for the third game, just to freshen it up.

"It's imperative that we have fresh legs, fresh bodies, and sometimes it gives you people with a little bit of a point to prove, and keeps people involved and interested. Those players have to realise that they're one game away from starting a game of football, so they can't shut off and down tools. There's a process to it, and it's worked well."

With another win on the road, Steve concluded by summing up Saturday's victory, with a look ahead towards our next fixture against Sheffield United.

"We've got three wins out of four, now. All we're doing at this club is looking at the positives, and looking at how we can get better and go forward.

"When you win the games, you've got to enjoy yourself. The boys are buzzing in the dressing room, and that's what it's all about. Tonight we will enjoy that, and the best thing is that on Monday morning everyone will come in with a smile on their face.

"We're not looking anywhere else other than the next game, which is another chance to get three points. We'll go again, and get ready for Sheffield United."
