Millwall forward Morison calls for fast start

19 May 2016

Striker Steve taking nothing for granted

Steve Morison expects Bradford to play with "no fear" at The Den on Friday and says he and his Millwall team-mates will need to start on the front foot in SE16.

The Lions hold a two-goal advantage going into the League One Play-Off Semi-Final second leg but The Bantams have history of overturning first leg defeats, most recently in 2013 when Burton Albion lost out despite beating Bradford at the Coral Windows Stadium.

That will serve as a warning to Morison and his colleagues but the in-form striker, who scored Millwall's second goal in last Sunday's win, insists that they don't need any reminding of the task at hand.

He told "We've spoken about the first leg but since then there has been a lot of hard work done on the training pitch to prepare ourselves for what will be a really tough match on Friday.

"Nobody is under any illusions; we know we have one huge job to do tomorrow night and there certainly won't be anybody thinking otherwise.

"Bradford will have no fear. They have nothing to lose and will throw everything at us, so we have to be ready and prepared for that. We definitely don't want to start like we did in the game last week.

"To a man we have to be on the front foot right from the first whistle and perform as we have been week-in, week-out this season."

Tickets have sold out in all home ends and the atmosphere promises to be reminiscent of the 2010 Play-Off Semi-Final second leg against Huddersfield Town - one of The Den's most famous nights - when Morison netted en route to a 2-0 victory.

"All of the lads have been talking about how the place will be rocking," he added.

"Most of them have not experienced just what The Den is like when it's full and I'm sure the atmosphere will be great.

"That being said, we need to make sure it ends up being a special occasion by doing our part and getting the job done."
