Lions striker believes favourable Cup draw is capturing fans' imagination

9 January 2018

Steve Morison is feeling positive after drawing Rochdale in the Emirates FA Cup Fourth Round.

The Lions will host Dale for a place in the last 16, while admitting success in the Sky Bet Championship is the priority for the season, Morison says fans have reason to be excited by the prospect of another Cup run.

"The fans really enjoy this competition," he told following Monday night's draw. 

"The Championship is the most important thing for us this season but no one ever says no to a Cup run. 

"We saw what happened with the big teams that were coming and falling at The Den last year and the way the fans were coming out in their numbers. This one is another one we can definitely win.

"Hopefully we can get through this match with Rochdale and be in the hat for the Fifth Round and get a big name in the draw."
