Steve Morison: We're heading in the right direction

Lions striker in upbeat mood after Swindon win

Steve Morison may not have been on the score-sheet in Saturday's 2-0 win against Swindon Town, but the Millwall striker again proved his value to the team with a virtuoso display leading the frontline.

Whilst Lee Gregory and Aiden O'Brien were on target with their fourth and fifth goals of the season respectively, the only thing missing to crown another excellent display by Morison was a goal.

The Welsh international, who hit the post and was twice denied by excellent saves from Swindon keeper Lawrence Vigouroux, was put forward to speak to the media after Saturday's game and here is how The Sun reported on the afternoon's events:

Steve Morison reckons Millwall are at a crossroads for this season - after helping his side to the win that cost Swindon boss Mark Cooper his job.

The Lions striker, 32, said: "We feel like we're going in the right direction. The season is not won or lost now.

"There are four teams at the bottom that are on 12 points and we're only on 17 - and the teams at the top are not too far away. This league is crazy."

Goals from Lee Gregory and Aiden O'Brien fired the hosts into a 2-0 lead before the break as Cooper's patched-up Robins seemed to throw in the towel.

Cooper was missing TEN first-team regulars due to injury or suspension yet any mitigating circumstances fell on deaf ears as far as Robins chairman Lee Power was concerned.

The ex-Norwich striker turned businessman axed Cooper by Twitter hours after this fifth league defeat in six.

Cooper, speaking before his dismissal, said: "When you sell £6million worth of talent in the summer like we did then it's difficult."
