Michael Morrison attributes Che Adams’ outstanding form inside the penalty area to the work he is doing outside. The Birmingham City striker grabbed his ninth goal of the season against Preston on Saturday, drawing him to within one of leading scorer Lukas Jutkiewicz.

He has already passed his best ever Championship tally before the half way mark and Morrison can only see more to come.

Also from the privileged vantage point of playing with the 22-year-old and training against him Morrison can see the difference.

Speaking to BirminghamLive, the Blues captain said, “Che is so hard to play against at the moment”.

“I think he is seeing the benefits of running the channel and playing up front with Jukes and that has really helped him.

“He wants that ball in the channel, he is so strong, he has got that low center of gravity, he is so awkward to mark and is being really effective as well getting goals and assists.

“You can see a real bit between his teeth, that real desire to do well and want to make those runs, hustle and bustle and it’s paying off.

“That’s why he wants to keep doing it because there are loads of goals there for him.

Morrisson also thinks Che Adams is a man full of confidence at the moment, saying the prolific striker knows his role in the team and enjoys playing in the team.


Adams will look to continue his good form against Bristol City this Saturday.

Blues have already gathered as many points this season as it took them until February to compile last term. They have also scored 30 goals in four months less than it did in the previous campaign.

Blues go into the game in ninth place, four points and five places ahead of Lee Johnson’s men.
