Video: Leeds United striker Steve Morison's awful shot goes out for a throw-in

A look at Leeds United striker Steve Morison managing one of the worst shots of the season.

 

Leeds United striker Steve Morison attempted one of the worst shots of the entire season at the weekend against Nottingham Forest.

The Welshman has not scored a goal for the club for more than two years, and on this evidence it's easy to see why.

Morison has just six shots on target all season, and this attempted piledriver from the edge of the box in the 0-0 draw against Nottingham Forest got nowhere near, going out for a throw-in instead.

The striker was playing out of his normal position, out on the right wing for the game, but even that is no excuse for a player who has 20 international caps - and just one goal - for Wales.

But Morison should not be too disheartened, it can happen to expensively touted superstars too. Just ask Brazilian international Hulk, who saw his woeful effort suffer a similar fate during a Europa League game for Zenit St Petersburg last month.
