Midfielder Joe Morrell admits the players at Cheltenham Town are determined to try and send home fans happy this summer.

The Robins face Coventry City in the final Sky Bet League Two game of the campaign at the LCI Rail Stadium on Saturday (kick-off 3pm).

And Morrell, who will play his final game at the stadium before returning to Bristol City, is eager to impress after a ‘brilliant’ loan spell at the club.

“As players you are always going to want to put on the best show you can, regardless of the opposition or the stage of the season,” he said.

”If there are a few that need that extra motivation then Coventry will be it because they are a big team in this league. They have a lot to play for with the play-offs and they will come with a big motivation to win.

“We want to win every game that we play. We’ve had the Forest Green Rovers game that didn’t go to plan so we need to send the fans home happy this summer and with optimism for next season. A result against a team like Coventry will do that.

“Part of professional football is pride and you never want to get beat, especially against a team like Coventry. You want to up your game so we come away with a decent performance.”

Morrell also reflected on his season at the club and admits he has nothing but thanks to the fans, staff and his team-mates.

“The fans have been brilliant with me, as everybody at the club has. Hopefully I can make that last home performance a good one,” he smiled.

“I’ve loved this year. It’s been a brilliant learning curve for me, everyone at the club has been fantastic and I want to thank them all for that.

“I’ve been asked a fair few times about my future. I don’t know at the moment, but if you had told me this time last season I would come to Cheltenham and play 40 games I would have snapped your hand off.

“I will go back to Bristol City and I am an ambitious person, I have to be.

“I know the gaffer at Bristol City has my best interests at heart. Having a good season here this season with Cheltenham has helped with my decision making. I am ambitious and want to play at the highest level I can.”
