Norwich City striker Carlton Morris scored his fourth goal of the season, as Rotherham earned a 1-0 home win over Accrington Stanley in League One.

The 23-year-old showed he is getting back to full fitness, having missed most of last season with knee and ankle injuries, when he powered in a header from a free-kick in the 30th minute.

"I came into this season not expecting to play as massive a part as I have in the past potentially, because we've got such a big, competitive squad," Morris told BBC Radio Sheffield.

"There's a lot of good players here, in terms of training sessions, it's probably one of the most intense I've been involved in - especially at this level. So it's good to get games and I'm happy with where I'm at."

Elsewhere, with some league games postponed due to international action, left-back James Husband played all of Blackpool's 2-0 home win over AFC Wimbledon as the Tangerines moved into the play-off places.
