Morrell reflects on his moment

Joe Morrell says it was worth the wait as he starred in City's FA Cup victory against Huddersfield Town.

The young Wales midfielder played the full 90 minutes against the Premier League outfit; only his fourth appearance for the Robins, his second this season.

In fact, it was only his second start for the club, after his debut back in October 2013.

"Very tiring" was how he began describing Saturday's victory. "I can barely stand up to be fair! I haven’t played as much this year whereas last season I played a lot (on loan at Cheltenham Town).

"It’s been difficult to get my head around but it has been worth that wait. As a team we more than matched Huddersfield and if anyone deserved to win it was definitely us, I felt.

"I haven’t been exposed to Championship football as much as the other lads but from what I felt you can tell the quality of their (Huddersfield Town) players. We more than matched them today so I can imagine it didn’t seem there was much of a gulf in quality and it didn’t feel like that [on the pitch]."

And Morrell believes there is more to come from him, following a match-winning display against the Terriers.

He said: "I thought I did what was needed but there is a lot more to come from me which hopefully I’ll get the chance to show. I felt I put myself about, I nullified their threats which is what I was in the side to do. Overall I’m pleased but there is a lot more to come from me."
