Aaron Morley is aiming to build on his flying start with Wanderers and keep the Whites in play-off contention.
Morley has hit the ground running in impressive style since his January arrival from Rochdale.
The midfield play-maker has slotted smoothly into the Wanderers’ set-up at the second time of asking.
And the former Wanderers’ Academy youngster admitted it had been close to the ideal start for him and fellow transfer-window recruits.
“It’s a bit surreal. I was here when I was about 14-15 and you never really thought about the first team then. It was just about getting that scholarship. But I’m loving my time here,” said Morley, whose release by the Whites saw him launch a professional career down the road with Dale.
“All the lads have been great with me and I just need to keep performing every week and I’ll be happy.
“It’s probably the best scenario that could have happened, coming in to a few wins and great performances.
“All the lads who came have settled in well and are playing their part.”
Morley – who celebrated his 22nd birthday last weekend – has already started 10 times for Ian Evatt’s men and featured in a defeat for the first time at MK Dons last weekend.
He made way at half-time in the 2-0 loss after picking up an early yellow card and is looking to help make collective amends at Gillingham today (Saturday) if he gets the nod to continue in the middle of the park and try and help the Whites close the eight-point gap to the top six.
“Everyone was devastated after the result at MK Dons but we know what we need to do and hopefully we can bounce back this Saturday and put it right,” Morley added.
“We’ve got the ability on the pitch and on the bench to get to the play-offs and hopefully we can.
“But we don’t really look at it that way. We just look at the next game and see how well we can perform.
“We take it game by game and hopefully we can push up the table a bit.
“It’s just about winning at the moment and putting good performances in.”
