Bryn Morris believes Pompey fans will soon start to see what he is capable of.

The midfielder has made three appearances for the Blues – all on the road – since arriving from Shrewsbury in January.

He came off the bench during the FA Cup defeat to QPR and also featured in league games at Luton and Plymouth.

Morris was used in a holding role against Argyle last week, but feels he can also do a job further up the pitch.

He said: “I think confidence and knowing the players around you comes with having a consistent run of games.

“Whether I’m used slightly deeper or even further forward, I’ve just got to stay ready and be prepared.

“My preferred role would be in the number eight position and have the licence to break into the box.

“When the Plymouth game was getting stretched and we wanted the win, I was there and got on the end of a cross, although the defender blocked it for a corner.”

Morris has been playing through the pain barrier after suffering an ankle injury in the narrow loss to Luton.

He said: “It’s just a bruised bone and is one of those things that you have to get on with. It is what it is.

“I’m obviously not jumping into 50-50 tackles in training, but there is always some knock that you have to deal with.

“As long as I can get through the matches without taking a massive whack on my ankle, then it’s just about managing it.”
