Steve Morison reflects on performance for Leeds United v Wolverhampton Wanderers in Championship

Elland Road Revie Stand

Steve Morison believes that he played well for Leeds United against Wolverhampton Wanderers at Elland Road in the Championship on Saturday.

Leeds United striker Steve Morison has been reflecting on his performance against Wolverhampton Wanderers at Elland Road on Saturday.

The Wales international made his first start for the Whites for almost 18 months, but he failed to prevent the West Yorkshire outfit from suffering a 2-1 defeat in the Championship clash.

Morison failed to score, but he provided an assist, played two key passes and won two dribbles (click here to read more). It was overall a good performance from the 31-year-old, who is now looking to maintain his place in the starting line-up.

‘I thought I did all right’, Morison told The Yorkshire Evening Post. ‘I have been waiting for a chance. I have got it maybe a little bit by default, with (Souleymane) Doukara being suspended and Sharp being injured, but I thought I played well.

‘Hopefully, the fans saw that I put in a shift and to be honest, I was knackered. To be honest, that is what happens when you have six or seven minutes of football throughout a game and all of a sudden, you start a game’.

Souleymane Doukara’s suspension saw Morison drafted into the Leeds starting line-up against Wolves, but under Neil Redfearn, the Welshman could well be relegated to the substitutes' bench.

Morison has cut a frustrating figure during his time at Leeds and was sent out on loan to Millwall last season, but based on his performance against Wolves, he deserves a chance against Cardiff City away from home in the Championship on Saturday.
