Millwall striker Morison wary of Colchester threat

Skipper Steve looks ahead to Saturday's trip to Essex

Steve Morison believes he and his Millwall team-mates will have to be at their best to overcome a resurgent Colchester United side on Saturday (3pm).

The Lions travel to Essex on the back of Monday's win over League leaders Burton Albion, a result which saw Millwall climb back up to fifth in the table after slipping out of the Play-Off places following last Saturday's narrow defeat to Bradford City.

Colchester enjoyed a positive Easter with back-to-back victories over Doncaster Rovers and Coventry City, which have breathed new life into their fight for survival. Saturday's hosts are 23rd in the table, seven points from safety, but have won three of their last six and will provide a stern test for The Lions, as Morison explains.

"Bradford was a bit of a kick in the teeth for us because we were in a good place but we bounced back really well against Burton," he said.

"We got two quick goals on Monday and in the end saw the game out quite comfortably, which just goes to show how far we've come and what a good team we are. We're on the right path.

"Colchester will be tough because they've picked up two good wins in a row and also beaten Bradford recently. They held Wigan to a draw and looked well on their way to beating Walsall at one point too, so that all goes to show that we have to be right on our game if we are to get a result.

"They are a very different side to the one we faced earlier in the season so we can take absolutely nothing for granted. We know just how big a challenge it is, but all the boys are looking forward to it.

"We've got a lot of fans going up there to support us and hopefully that will make a big difference."
