Striker Steve Morison has said that following last season’s Play Off disappointment, he feels the players are in a ‘good place’ as they continue their Portugal training camp.

Having headed out last Thursday for a week, Morison told the official site that given the first week of training under our belts, and the spirit he’d seen amongst the group, he felt everybody was already in ‘a good place’ ahead of the coming challenges this year, and he feels fans will get to see further improvements this coming campaign.

‘We’ve slotted straight back in as if we’ve not been away. We have enjoyed the first couple of days and there is a long, tough week ahead of us. But we look forward to the hard work and embrace it. You can see in the tests that we’ve done there are some really good scores so we’re in a positive position right now. It’s only a month until we get started which is great.’


‘We had a lot of players who were new to it last year so they’ve come back with a season under their belts and hopefully you will see some progression in them. They will be more mature and those with more experience have to keep that consistency at where it was. With the new additions, which I think will make us a better team, we’re in a good place.’

20 year old fullback Mahlon Romeo was also interviewed over in Portugal, and having missed out on the Play Off campaign himself with a suspension, he knew there would be competition for his place, but he knew his focus just had to be on impressing the manager and earning it back.

‘It’s good to be back with the boys. You miss it more than you think. It’s nice to have a week or two to rest and put your feet up but then it’s good to get back training. Naturally I feel a more experienced player now but I’m approaching this pre-season exactly the same in terms of still trying to impress the gaffer by working as hard as I can. Everyone is buzzing for the first match now. We’ll stay focused and make sure we are ready for Oldham.’
