Midfielder’s Bristol City return confirmed



Bristol City have confirmed that midfielder James Morton has been recalled from his loan spell in League Two with Forest Green Rovers.

Back in September, Morton signed a new four-year deal at Ashton Gate and the 20-year-old is now expected to be involved in and around the Robins first team during the second-half of the season.

During his time with the Green Army, Morton racked up 17 appearances in all competitions, helping Mark Cooper and his side into contention for a League Two play-off place.

Quiz: Can you remember Bristol City’s last 15 January deals? (ins and outs)

1. Who joined Plymouth Argyle on loan in January 2020?

Last season he spent the campaign in the Vanarama South with Bath City, netting one an assisting 12 more in 50 appearances as they made the play-offs.

Morton arrives back into a club suffering from a huge downturn in form in recent weeks with Johnson’s side losing five of their last six league games, plunging them out of the play-offs and down into 11th as a result.

Next up for the Robins is a tricky trip to Wigan Athletic and, with the pressure growing on the management team, they will know that nothing other than a win will suffice for the fans.

The verdict

For most connected with the club, the current state of affairs is anything but positives, but it could be a situation that works in Morton’s favour.

The more the club struggle for results the more Johnson is likely to try new things, which could well lead to the midfielder getting his chance sooner than he expected.

With the likes of Josh Brownhill, Adam Nagy and Han-Noah Massengo ahead of him, it may prove difficult, but he should at least be using it as motivation.
