"We need to stick to our game and our strengths for consistency"

Glenn Morris on Carlisle United, home form and reacting to Newport County

29 September 2017

Glenn Morris knows that the side's performances haven't been at a consistent level so far this year, but is fully behind the idea that the Reds will soon begin to click as a team.

Speaking ahead of Saturday's game with Carlisle United, the goalkeeper believes that the new style of play being implemented will soon begin to show it's rewards.

"We'll make no secret of the fact that the form has been up and down so far," he told the media on Friday.

"We've got a new style of play and there's been some really positives performances and signs, but we have to be more consistent with those.

"But sooner or later I really do believe it will click into gear and then we can pick up points."

Tuesday evening's loss to Newport County meant that Kewell's men have still picked up just one home win this season, over Yeovil Town at the start of September. The former Gillingham stopper recognises the need to imrpove fortunes on home soil. 

"We need to improve the home form here and we do want to make this a fortress," he continued.

"The away form has been really good and the challenge for us now is to turn it around in front of the home crowd and start getting results here.

"All of a sudden you can get confidence here - at the moment we're starting games well but then if things don't go to plan we get frustrated and get sidetracked from playing our style of football."

The man who made his 50th apperance for the club a few weeks ago knows the way in which Keith Curle's men will be looking to play on Saturday, but insists that the side in front of him will be well equipped to handle their threats.

"I don't seem to be having too much to do within games and the defence in front of me are performing well on the whole.

"Maybe from set-pieces we have a bit of work to do but as a team we feel pretty good.

"We're restricting teams to not too many chances - Carlisle will be quite direct and we'll stand up and deal with that.

"We've dealt with it in the past, Tuesday aside, but we'll be looking to put that right on Saturday."
