"We're doing it right and professionally," says Morison

Veteran striker discusses Portugal...

16 July 2018

Steve Morison is currently in the midst of his 17th pre-season campaign as a professional - with the striker stating that "it gets easier" despite his senior years.

The 34-year-old is about to embark on another campaign leading The Lions' attack and is also chasing a place in the top five leading Millwall goalscorers of all-time.

Speaking to during the training camp in Portugal, Morison spoke of the impressive facilities handed to the club.

"It's been good fun," he said. "We've done a lot of hard graft on the training ground for two weeks before we came out here. We've had a good runout.

"It's all about the games now and getting match fitness in. We've also had a bit of downtime. We're doing it right and we're doing it professionally - it's a great place to be doing it as well.

"We've been [to Portugal] the last few years and whilst it's been good, it's been nothing close to this. We're really enjoying it and the set-up is great. We're working hard and doing it on a great surface as well."

Whilst The Lions are being put through their paces and soaking up the Algarve sun, most eyes are on Saturday 4th August and the opening day of the Sky Bet Championship season as Millwall host Middlesbrough.

Pre-season matches at Cambridge and Colchester United as well as Jimmy Abdou's testimonial at home to VfL Bochum 1848 are still to come, but Morison is already hoping to claim his place in the XI against Tony Pulis' side.

"I feel great. It gets easier - it's all in the mind now. I know I can do the work. I feel good - I've played minutes, I've played them comfortably. We'll keep pushing on and hopefully I'm in that starting XI for the first game of the season."
