Morrison on Burnley win, Rondon and his goal run

In-form Baggies travel to Hull City on Saturday (ko 3pm)

JAMES Morrison reacted to Albion's emphatic 4-0 victory over Burnley at The Hawthorns on Monday night.

The Scotland international midfielder scored in back-to-back Premier League games for the first time since 2008 to help hand the Baggies a dream start against the Clarets, coming after Matt Phillips - who also found the net at Leicester last time out - opening the scoring early on.

Captain Darren Fletcher then struck before the break while Salomon Rondon put the gloss on a superb team performance with a fourth goal midway through the second half.

Speaking afterwards, Morrison was delighted to secure three points which duly saw Albion move up to ninth in the Premier League table.

Morrison on Albion's impressive start...
"We've started poorly in recent weeks and the manager drummed into us about making a quick start.
"It was perfect wasn't it, to be 2-0 up after 15 minutes. It was a great start from the lads."

Morrison on Rondon...
"He deserved his goal. He gives defenders problems and he took his goal really well."

Morrison on his goal...
"It's something I do in training and it paid off. I'm delighted to keep the goal run going and hopefully I can keep it going away at Hull."
