    THE SECRET SCOUT: Wales’ Joe Morrell is an energetic and tough-tackling midfielder

    THE SECRET SCOUT: Bristol City star Joe Morrell is an energetic and tough tackling midfielder as he was picked to start for Wales against England by manager Ryan Giggs

    Our scout is a top football expert who attends matches each week searching for the next star. He’ll bring you his verdict in Sportsmail.

    NAME: Joe Morrell

    AGE: 23 

    CLUB: Bristol City

    POSITION: Midfield

    MIDFIELD VALUE: £2.5m

    Joe Morrell of Bristol City and Wales is the latest name targeted by Sportsmail’s Secret Scout

    WHAT HAS HE GOT?

    Playing as the deepest of a three-man midfield with licence to break forward, Morrell’s attacking instincts were curbed because his team had less of the possession in this game.

    Although not the biggest, he got through a busy evening’s work, keeping an eye on the visitors’ No 10 while moving forward to support the other midfielders only occasionally. 

    His game was resourceful — winning tackles, getting the ball early and spreading the play with a couple of searching cross-field balls. Never far from the centre of the field, at one stage I wondered if he was almost welded to the centre circle.

    At 5ft 8in, he showed no fear in challenging more hefty opponents and was brave enough to take a heavy one himself. 

    Tackling is a strong point but in the second half he could not command the ball as his team came under pressure. 

    I saw energy and battling qualities and a good example set to his team-mates. He looks a real team player. 

    Occasionally he may attract a yellow card but he has more pluses than minuses.

    WHAT DOES HE NEED?

    I would like to have seen him break forward more, but one is never sure of the coach’s instructions.

    Although he did well to manoeuvre himself out of a couple of tight situations, he would have been more able to do this if he had confidence in his left foot. He did not play a pass with it all night. 

    The Welshman played for his country on Thursday against England and I expect a successful season for him at Bristol City, who are top of the Championship with four wins from four. 

    He has been a slow burner through several loans and has shown he has the will and character to succeed.
