"I'm already looking forward to coming back," says Morison

Lions striker "can't wait" for a return to The Championship

22 May 2017

Play-Off Final match-winner Steve Morison is already looking ahead to the next challenge 48 hours after helping Millwall gain promotion to the Sky Bet Championship.

Morison's 85th minute strike was the difference in a bruising encounter with Bradford City at Wembley Stadium and the veteran striker admits it was one of the most important goals of his Lions career.
 
"It was a massive achievement because it sent us back into the Championship," he told millwallfc.co.uk
 
"It was a colossal effort from everyone. We had to dig in and defend because they had a lot of the ball. Credit to Jordan Archer because he came up with some massive saves and we made our moment count at the other end when we had a chance late in the game."
 
Millwall will follow fellow League One clubs Sheffield United and Bolton into the second tier of English Football. 
 
"The teams that are coming down from the Premier League are huge," the 33-year-old added.
 
"We will also meet Bolton and Sheffield United again next season and they are big, big clubs. It's going to be one hell of a season."
 
But the team will take a well-earned break before returning for pre-season training in late June - whether they want a rest or not.
 
"I'll probably be bored by Wednesday. I'm already looking forward to coming back!
 
"I'll work on finishing my coaching licence and spending time with the family but I can't wait to get back and do it all again in the Championship."
