Playing bigger teams suit us - Aldershot's Aaron Morris

Aldershot defender Aaron Morris says the side's style of football suits playing higher division teams.

The Shots go to Sheffield Wednesday in the FA Cup having already secured League Cup wins over West Ham, Carlisle United and Rochdale this season.

Morris, 21, told BBC Surrey: "When we play the higher teams, there's a big emphasis on passing the ball.

"They kind of sit off, and you do get your fair share of possession and get to pass the ball."

Aldershot have beaten three League One sides and a Championship team in 2011, and made Manchester United work for a 3-0 victory at the Ebb Stadium, and Morris feels those experiences will help them at Hillsborough on Saturday.

"We played well against all four of them, or did ourselves justice in those games," he said.

"It should settle us a bit playing a higher league team. When we get the ball down and play, we have really good performances.

"It's going to be a great game for us, a great occasion for the fans and the players, so hopefully we can put on a good performance."

Morris only started playing professional football relatively late in life, not joining his first club, Cardiff City, as a trainee until he was 18.

The weekend's tie will mark his fourth appearance in the FA Cup, and he says he is eager to experience playing at Hillsborough.

"I've seen a couple of the games on the Football League show, and the pitch looks immaculate. It'll be a big test for us, but we couldn't ask for better surroundings."
