Sam Morsy: Every match we play is a big game
Wigan midfielder Sam Morsy spoke about his performance with the Latics and discussed the importance of the team’s remaining games this season.
The 24-year-old, who joined Wigan from League One rival Chesterfield during the January transfer window, has already earned praise from his manager for his stellar performances recently.
The midfielder spoke on his recent performances with the team, saying that he’s so far pleased, yet he feels he “can kick on into another gear”.
“It can take a couple of games to adapt and get used to your teammates but definitely there are another couple of gears that I am looking forward to getting into and showing the fans even more,” he added.
Morsy also pointed out the importance of all 10 of the Latics’ remaining league games, saying that none of them is easy.
“There are no easy games at this stage of the season. Every match we play is a big game regardless of the opposition,” he said.
He explained that the team have seen evident progress, as they went from being fifth in the table on January 27 to becoming second.
“But we know we have to kick on now and the emphasis for us is always going to be win every game we play. It is all about consistency and the will and the desire to win,” he added.
Wigan are scheduled to host Bradford City on Saturday in Gameweek 37 of League One. Morsy highlighted the importance of Saturday’s fixture, as well as the remaining 10 matches in the season.
“In a 46-game season, what game is more important? The first or the last? To me they’re all the same, you’re still fighting for three points at the end of it and you should apply yourself the same for every game. It’s a mini-season now,” he said.
“Bradford are a good side…They’re on a great run of form, it is going to be tough because Phil Parkinson has got his side set up and ready to play – it is all about us, though, and whether we can do our best,” he added.
