Striker looks back on weekend win at Grimsby

2 March 2020

Striker Callum Morton took his goal tally as a Northampton Town player to five, but then said the win at Grimsby was more important than any personal achievement.

Morton scored twice in a 3-0 win and while those goals grabbed the headlines, he was quick to focus on what the result meant for the team.

"I was really pleased to score two more goals, but more importantly, Saturday was a good result for us," he said.

"For my first goal, the ball came to me from Sam Hoskins, I got it out of my feet and then managed to get it into the corner of the net and that put us 2-0 up and in to a good position.

"I got my second goal with ten minutes to go. I anticipated the back pass would go short, I thought it had got away from me but I managed to poke a finish under the keeper and that really made the game safe."

As the squad prepare for a home game against Mansfield Town on Saturday, Morton said confidence in the Cobblers camp is high.
"With the players we have and the quality we have, we know we have got both goals and clean sheets in us," he said.

"All of my goals have come away from home so far, it would be nice to get a goal at home and help us on to another good result in what will be a difficult game this weekend.

"I am really enjoying things here at the moment. I try and stay grounded and as a squad we try not to get too ahead of ourselves. Our focus is solely on the next game.

"The main thing is winning games. Scoring is a huge bonus but the result is the all important thing."
