Lions are "living the dream," says Morison

Read from Saturday's goalscorer after the draw at Sheffield United

16 April 2018

Millwall striker Steve Morison says The Lions are “living the dream right now,” hailing the team's united spirit after they picked up a crucial point in a 1-1 draw at Play-Off rivals Sheffield United on Saturday.

Morison’s fifth goal of the season, an instant reply after Leon Clarke had given the hosts the lead with just 16 minutes remaining, was enough to keep The Lions firmly in the race for promotion and cemented their place in the Sky Bet Championship’s top six.

Speaking after Millwall extended their unbeaten run to 17 games, he said: “We knew it would be a tough game. They had to beat us and they didn’t.  

“Everyone is calm. I said in the huddle before the game, we’ve got a unique thing at this football club. We’re lucky we’ve got a dressing room that you know is going to run and fight for you.

“We should have been better, we weren’t as good as we should’ve been. But the signs of a good team are when you pick up points when you’re not at your best, so we have another point on board. It’s a massive day for us.”

Morison, who admitted he would have happily accepted The Lions finishing 21st – and thus narrowly avoiding relegation - this campaign, maintains there is no pressure on Neil Harris’ squad as they head into the final three games of the season.

He added: “We’re not feeling pressure. The only time we’d feel that is if we’re stepping out at Wembley on May 26th – then it’s real.

“We’re that close to the Premier League now. What have we got to feel pressure about? We never expected to be here, everyone expected us to keep falling away.

“We’re living the dream right now. We never planned for this, so we’re just going to enjoy the ride now.

“As the gaffer has said in his interviews though the table doesn’t lie, and after 46 games we deserve to be where we are.”
