Striker and brace goalscorer Steve Morison has said that Millwall have more than deserved the chance for promotion at Wembley this season.

Having overcome Scunthorpe United at Glanford Park three two in the Play Off semi finals, Millwall now head to Wembley to face Bradford City with a Championship return a real possibility.

Having more than played his part in the game, Morison told the official site in his own post game press conference that he felt a Wembley trip had been ‘thoroughly deserved’.

‘We were fantastic. Scunthorpe were looking to score from set-pieces and we were comfortably dealing with most of them before one snuck in from a corner. You’re always concerned when you go a goal down. It seems like we wanted to do it the hard way but we dug in and got the job done.’

Having scored our equaliser as we found ourselves a goal down in the game, Morison also assisted for Lee Gregory before he grabbed his second of the day.

The 33 year old went on to say.

‘When we scored just before half-time I thought we were in a good position to push on and win it. TC put a great cross in and I headed it home. It seemed like everyone just stopped and paused because no one could quite work out what was going on – they were shellshocked. We were virtually unplayable for 20 minutes in the second-half and I was able to deliver a quality ball for Lee to head into the back of the net.’

With Scunthorpe making it three two on the day, it was a nervy end to the match.

‘I got a bit fortunate with the third goal but that’s what happens when you apply the pressure like we did. Scunthorpe came out swinging late in the match and thankfully we survived a hairy final ten minutes to see out the game. It’s a difficult place to travel to and we deserve a lot of credit. We scored three good goals and thoroughly deserve to be going to another Final.’

With a three nil defeat to Barnsley last season, Morison ended by saying that last season will be something we can lean on in terms of the experience of the day as everyone in the group will be looking to offset that defeat.

‘There is always going to be comparisons to last season and we can definitely learn from it. Our aim was always to get promoted and we have worked hard this year to make it a reality.’
