Full-back James Morris was pleased Watford Under-23s could return to winning ways against Birmingham City in the Premier League Cup on Tuesday night, with a dominant 4-1 win at Clarence Park.
Morris, who celebrated his 20th birthday on Tuesday, captained the side in St Albans, and was able to make valuable attacking contributions, including an assist for Maurizio Pochettino’s first goal.
“To be captain is a great honour and comes with that added leadership but that’s something I’ve wanted to add to my game,” said Morris.
“To get the win was nice and going forward we need to keep the momentum going. We’ve had a few losses in a row so to get that win, we need to keep it going before Christmas.
“A big part of being a full-back nowadays is going forward and I really enjoy that, getting crosses in, so to contribute to a couple of goals, it’s been really good.”
