David Morgan says he was ‘delighted’ to come away with a 1-1 draw away to York City on Saturday.

Despite being pleased with the result, the Southport skipper feels that they could’ve come away from Bootham Crescent with more.

After eight minutes of play against the Minstermen, Morgan hit a superb strike from the edge of the box to put the Port ahead.

The result and performance saw the Port build on the home victory against Altrincham earlier in the week.

“We are delighted to get the point, especially after the win on Tuesday, but if you go deeper into the game then you’ll see that we should’ve actually won it because we had the majority of the chances,” he said.

“I’ve never hit anything so sweetly. You could say the keeper could’ve done more but it was going everywhere and moved all over the place. It’s always nice to score but when it goes in like that, it’s even better.”

“I’m normally good for one like that in the season, it’s just about finding the right areas to hit those shots. We’ve changed the way we’ve played in the last few games, and are more on the front foot, so that’s brought the best out of me.”

The midfielder jokes he will need a few more attempts in order to beat the stunning goal by Kieran Glynn in the win over  Altrincham.

“It was a great goal. He’s passed it in to me today so he’ll get the assist, but I might have to try another one to see if I can beat him.”

Morgan says despise York’s strong start to the season, Liam Watson’s men were not daunted by the encounter.

“We never have a mindset where we are worried about going somewhere. We want to go toe to toe with every team we play, even if we don’t win, at least we don’t go away thinking ‘what if.’ We have a go and that’s the way we’ll get more results.”

The 25-year-old states he can see similarities to the way Southport started last season.

“We have started a bit better, but it’s quite similar to last year. We put in a few good results before the FA Cup game, which brought the best out of us, so we might be able to go on a good run again.”

Morgan believes it is too early to be looking at the table and they must just take one match at a time.

“If we go game by game and find ourselves around the playoffs at Christmas then we can look forward from there.”

Southport’s next game will be against Blyth Spartans at the Pure Stadium on Saturday.

“We need to score more goals, it would be fantastic to put in another run like the one where we got back to back 3-0 wins. We won’t be taking the game lightly, teams at the bottom are scrapping for their lives so it won’t be easy.”
