The goals will come back, says Morison

Skipper Steve Morison insists he is still the man to fire Boro into the play-offs despite his recent barren spell in front of goal.
The 25-year-old has scored just one goal in his last eight outings but believes it is only a matter of time before he gets back on the goalscoring trail.
"I don't worry about it," he told The Comet. "Everyone knows that I will score. I know that I'm good enough to score goals.
"People maybe mark me a bit tighter because they know about my threat. I will get my chances and I will put them away. I always come good."
Morison added that he feels it is time for Boro's fringe players to raise their game to compensate for the losses of Andy Drury and David Bridges due to injury.
Bridges looks likely to miss the rest of the season after being stretchered off on Saturday with a knee injury while Drury is recovering from a hamstring tear suffered against Ebbsfleet.

Morison admitted it would be a massive blow to Boro's promotion hopes if Bridges' injury is as bad as first feared but hopes the likes of Darren Murphy and Gary Mills raise their game to cover for his absence.
"He is a really good player and if we lose him then it would be a massive blow to us. Other people that are in the team are going to have to step up now.
"They're going to have to pull their finger out and replace him."
Morison is adamant Boro will stay make the play-offs despite dropping points against Oxford and feels as long as the club stays unbeaten for the rest of the season then a place in the top five awaits.
"It's in our hands to a degree. Kidderminster dropped points again. If other teams have dropped points then that's obviously a positive for us.
"We didn't lose the game today so Oxford didn't gain any ground on us.
"We've just got to keep doing what we've been doing. If we stay unbeaten until the end of the season then we won't have any problem getting into the play-offs.
