A rare goal by Ashtone Morgan helped Toronto FC secure the win over the New York Red Bulls on Wednesday night.
While scoring is not Morgan’s forte, Toronto’s longest-serving player still brings plenty to the table without much fanfare. Morgan, now understudy to all-star left fullback Justin Morrow, just quietly goes about his business.
“Ash is a guy you can always count on. He’s always ready, 100 per cent professional, a team player,” said star striker Jozy Altidore, who helped set up Morgan’s insurance goal in the 3-1 win over the Red Bulls. “It’s a pleasure to have guys like that, that when their name’s called, regardless of what’s going on, come in and put in a shift.
