"Our fate is in our hands," says Morison

Lions striker expects team-mates to rise to the challenge in race to the play-offs

Steve Morison has praised the character and desire of his Millwall team-mates after the club forced their way back into the Sky Bet League One's top six.

The Lions face a difficult run-in with three of their remaining four matches to be played against teams in the top ten, but the experienced striker believes his side have proved they have the mental fortitude to reach the play-offs for a second consecutive season. 

"We have tough games coming up but our fate is in our hands," Morison told

"We are at the right end of the table and now we just need to hold on and stay there. Everyone is determined and moving in the same direction. 

"By hook or by crook, I don't care how we do it as long as we are in the mix at the end of the season. That hunger is there for all of our players.

"Reaching the play-offs is an incredible experience and I know we have what it takes to get there again. I don't think anyone will fancy coming down to The Den over the next few weeks because all the fans will turn up for those games."

Morison produced a fine finish to draw level at Gillingham on Saturday afternoon, drilling home his first goal since February at the end of a lovely flowing move through midfield.

"That was an important goal because it was enough to get a point from the match," he added. 

"The lead up to that goal was the best football we have played in a long time. It was nice to get back on the scoresheet after a month without a goal. I feel like I have been playing quite well and I hope to put a few more away in the coming weeks.

"We showed good character to come back but we just couldn't get it over the line and get the win despite having a lot of the ball late in the game."
