Striker looks ahead to Wednesday night

Steve Morison has urged Millwall fans to continue their great support as The Lions look to extend their unbeaten run against Walsall at The Den this Wednesday night (7.45pm).

Neil Harris' side have gone eight games without defeat - a run stretching back to a 3-1 victory over Charlton Athletic on December 21st - but they now face a tough period of seven League games in February, in addition to an Emirates FA Cup Fifth Round tie.

That run begins with the visit of The Saddlers, with The Lions currently sitting in 10th place in the Sky Bet League One table, five points off of the Play-Off spots.

Speaking after last Sunday's 1-0 win over Watford, the striker stated that the squad were "happy to be in the next round", but all attention is now on Wednesday's important game.

"It was a great win, a brilliant performance and we're obviously all very happy to be in the next round. But our main focus this season, as it has been all along, is to do as well as we possibly can in the League," the striker said.

"We need to keep the pressure up on the teams in the top six and we won't achieve that if we let our focus slip and think about who we've got next in The FA Cup.

"We're now completely focused on Walsall this Wednesday, which is a massive game for the club. We're on a very good run of form and we will need to play as well as we have done in any of the last eight games if we are to get a result."

Morison was full of praise for the home crowd on Sunday afternoon and is hopeful of a similar atmosphere at The Den on Wednesday night.

"The fans really helped to drive us on. Everyone knows how big of a difference it makes to the players in terms of our performance when the atmosphere is there. Hopefully there will be a good crowd on Wednesday night to help us get a positive result."
