The standard of Scottish Premiership football has surprised Norwich City's on-loan striker Carlton Morris during his stint at Hamilton.

The teenage frontman has scored twice in six appearances, but was on the end of a 4-1 defeat at St Johnstone over the weekend.

'The level we're playing at is surprisingly high, to be honest, but it's really good,' said Morris, who is on loan at the Accies until January 1, after previous spells at Oxford and York. 'I'm a person who wants to test myself as much as I can, so this is the level I want to be playing at right now. We learn more when we're playing against better players, so when we're playing against the likes of Hearts, Aberdeen and Celtic, who generally have good players, that's good experience for me.

'There are a lot of strikers at the club and the manager, Martin Canning, is playing me so I'm delighted. As long as I can keep performing to the best of my ability and the team keeps doing well then I'll try to keep earning my place. I don't set any goal targets, I just want to score as many as I can.'
