Instrumental strikers

16 April 2013

Chris Morgan believes the Dave Kitson and Chris Porter partnership will have an instrumental role to play in the final four matches of the season.

Saturday's strike duo both scored in the win over Swindon Town and Morgan feels they complement each other.

Analysing the attributes of the duo, Morgan commented: "Ports and Kits were excellent on Saturday; they led the line well, never gave Swindon's defence a moment's peace, and proved to be a real goalscoring threat.

"Dave is experienced, can play as the lead striker or a little bit deeper, but his ability to bring others into the game is crucial. As he has proved, he is a genuine goal threat in every game he plays and has certainly helped us into the position we are in.

"Ports had a loan spell at Shrewsbury and got some valuable minutes under his belt. He has come back desperate to play and, like Kits, he will score goals when he is fully fit.

"When I watch Ports I see goals and that is why I played him at the weekend, because obviously scoring at home has been a real problem.

"As a pair I thought that they were the best option at the weekend and thankfully, with them both getting on the scoresheet, it proved to be a good decision.

"Confidence until the end of the season is going to be massive and for a striker there is no bigger lift then getting amongst the goals."
