Morrison post-Preston | To a man, we were fantastic
The Bluebirds defeated Preston North End on Sunday afternoon, keeping yet another clean sheet on the road with a 1-0 victory at Deepdale.
After the match, City skipper Sean Morrison spoke to Sky Sports, following an impressive personal performance which saw him claim the Man of the Match Award.
“It was a great win,” Sean began. “Preston is a tough place to come. They put in a lot of crosses, but we defended the box really well as a team today.”
With Sheyi Ojo’s strike proving to be the difference against the Lilywhites, the skipper praised his City teammates for a resilient performance, claiming that the best is yet to come from the lads.
“It’s tough when you’re playing without the away fans. We’ve conceded some poor goals in the games that we’ve lost, and we’ve tried to eradicate that. I think we showed that today, we defended really well. Not just the back four, the whole squad.
“I think that’s only 75-80% of what we can do. We’ve still got a lot of work to do, in terms of building up play in the attacking areas. But we’re delighted with the clean sheet. To a man, we were fantastic, so it’s a great win.”
Finally, with a busy schedule facing the Bluebirds in the coming weeks, Moz spoke of the importance of building momentum in order to climb the Championship table, beginning with Bournemouth on Wednesday evening.
“It puts us in great stead. If we can go and get back-to-back wins in midweek, and get three wins on the bounce, then we shoot right up the table. There are six games to go in this block of fixtures, and this is what it’s all about. I’m excited.
“I love playing three games in a week. It doesn’t give you too much time to think about a win or a loss, you just crack on with the next game. Hopefully we can put in some good performances like we did today, and improve in the areas we know we can.”
