Setting The Standard

Aaron Morley is targeting a winning finish to set the stage for a renewed promotion push next season.

Midfield man Morley played a starring role as Wanderers beat Cheltenham Town to make three wins on the spin.

Another victory in next Saturday’s finale at home to Fleetwood Town would make it eight games without defeat to end the campaign for Ian Evatt’s men.

And Morley believes that would provide the ideal platform to try and kick on next season.

“That’s all we were hoping to do, build for next season and get as many wins as we can and hopefully get that ninth spot,” he said.

“Hopefully we can put in a good performance next week against Fleetwood and get that.

“We just play game by game and hopefully set the standard for next season and hopefully push for promotion next season.”

Wanderers have shown promotion form since the arrival of Morley and half-a-dozen other new faces in January to bolster Evatt’s squad.

The Whites have lost just three times in their last 21 games and on Saturday became only the second team to win at Cheltenham since Boxing Day.

Kieran Sadlier and Amadou Bakayoko – from the penalty spot – got the goals which set up an impressive 2-1 win to stay level on points with Portsmouth, who are currently ninth in the League One table.

And no-one played better than Morley, who gave a masterly performance to help secure a ninth away win of the season for the Whites.

“I think in the first half we got a few things wrong with the press but we sorted it out at half time and came out dominant in the second half. It was great to be part of,” added the 22-year-old.

“It was a great finish from Sads. It was just getting that first goal.

“We couldn’t quite get it in the first half but it came in the second half and we just built on that and got another one.”
