James Morrison is beginning to think he’s made of chocolate after taking a knock to both his ankles in consecutive weeks.

Speaking to wba.co.uk, Morrison said he rolled his ankle in the first 30 seconds of the Spurs game, but he was adamant he wouldn’t come off – which proved to be the right choice as he bagged our equiliser.

‘I rolled my ankle in the first 30 seconds but didn’t want to come off. I said I was okay and wanted to carry on. I looked at the clock and for 20 minutes I didn’t really touch the ball, but I got through it and got my rewards at the end.’

As for Morrison’s growing ankle issues, he added.

‘Last week, I was struggling with my other ankle after I did it in the Scotland international. This time it was the other one. I think I’m made of chocolate.’

Morrison also talked briefly about Steve Clarke and his style on the training pitch.

‘Steve hasn’t changed too much. It worked last season so there was no need. But he’s tweaked a few things. He makes us train hard and is very dedicated. It’s all about possession, keeping the ball, moving it around quickly and keeping that shape.’

Sounds like Clarke was the ideal person to follow what Hodgson started to put in place.
