Millwall manager Neil Harris has piled praise on his players after the club achieved promotion with a hard-fought 1-0 victory over Bradford City at Wembley Stadium.
Steve Morison scored the decisive goal in the 85th minute of regular time, queuing euphoric scenes in front of 28,000 travelling Lions supporters.
"I cannot express how proud I am of our players and how delighted I am to deliver for our fanbase," Harris told millwallfc.co.uk
"We had to deal with a lot this year. We have had difficult times during the year and it went very much unnoticed that we a had four-week break before last season started and preparing for this one. We had a defeat in a Play-Off Final and the criticism has been heavy at times.
"My players have always found a way when they've needed to. That comes from having big hearts, strong team spirit and from being good people.
"We don't always have a lot of the ball but we find a way to win. We had to stand strong, make some last-ditch tackles and Jordan Archer had to make some fantastic saves - but we got it done.
"The second-half we were a little bit braver and we worked our socks off and got the reward. I couldn't be happier right now!"
