Shrewsbury striker Marvin Morgan insists that a number of his team-mates could play at a much higher level following their stunning cup run.

The Shrews have been rewarded for victories over Championship side Derby and Premier League new-boys Swansea with a trip to Arsenal in the third round of the Carling Cup.

The 28-year-old has notched three times en route to Emirates Stadium and he told that the likes of Lionel Ainsworth and striker-partner Jimmy Collins are more than capable of playing on a bigger stage.


"All players, at any age, have to be ambitious and strive to play at the highest level possible and if the gaffer saw any of his players just happy with their lot and content playing in League Two they wouldn't be here anymore," explained Morgan.

"There are some players in this club that are good enough to go on and play in the Premier League and you just never know what is round the corner in football.

"I've seen a lot of friends go on and play in the top flight, so why not some of the lads here."


Alongside their cup heroics, the Shrews have made a solid start to their league campaign, with just one defeat in their first six games and former Aldershot striker Morgan senses a title challenge is well within their sights.

"I'm at a club now with a good team and one in which I feel comfortable in, especially with the way we play because every striker likes to see the game played in the right way," he continued.

"The last time I felt like this was a few years ago when we reached the play-offs at Aldershot, with the right people around me, so there is a similar feeling here.

"Promotion is obviously the aim this year, but I honestly feel that we could do even better and win the title.

"It is still early doors and there is a long season ahead, but beating Derby, a solid Championship side, and Swansea, who have earned their place in the top flight, proves that on our day we are up there with the best in this division."
