Steve Morison: "We can't afford to be complacent"

16 May 2016

There is still plenty of hard work ahead to finish the job says Lions skipper

Steve Morison has warned his team-mates that they must remain fully focused with no room for complacency when The Lions lock horns with Bradford City in the League One Play-Off Semi-Final second leg at The Den on Friday night (7.45pm).

Goals from Lee Gregory, skipper Morison and Joe Martin cancelled out Tony McMahon's opener in Sunday's first leg at the Coral Windows Stadium, but with the tie effectively at 'half-time', Morison knows that his side can take nothing for granted against a Bradford outfit who have previous history of overturning Play-Off aggregate deficits.

In the 2012/13 campaign the Bantams were beaten 3-2 at home by Burton Albion, but went on to win 3-1 away in the second leg to reach the Final, where they eased past Northampton by a 3-0 score. They also overturned a two-goal deficit in 1996 against Blackpool.

Morison, who bagged his 19th goal of the season against Bradford, refused to get carried away after Sunday's victory and told Sky Sports after the final whistle: "It was a brilliant result, it's what we've been doing all year away from home.

"But we can't get carried away with that, it's brilliant but we have still got a long way to go.

"You saw how much pressure they put us under after the break. We've done half the job."

Morison and strike partner Gregory both found the back of the net at the Coral Windows Stadium, taking their combined tally to 45 goals.

"If we are both scoring each week we are doing something right," added The Lions frontman.

"It's been fantastic; I have loved playing alongside him all year and hopefully we can keep it up on Friday."
