Striker Steve Morison has reflected on Millwall taking a point from Gillingham to move into the last Play Off spot by saying the club now have promotion in their hands.
With seven points taken from an available nine over the last week to put us into the last Play Off spot with Southend United slipping out by a point, Morison told the official site in his own post game press conference that everyone deserved credit for showing their character and desire to get ourselves back into the mix.
Now that it’s in our hands we have to make the most of it though.
‘We have tough games coming up but our fate is in our hands. We are at the right end of the table and now we just need to hold on and stay there. Everyone is determined and moving in the same direction. By hook or by crook, I don’t care how we do it as long as we are in the mix at the end of the season. That hunger is there for all of our players. Reaching the play-offs is an incredible experience and I know we have what it takes to get there again. I don’t think anyone will fancy coming down to The Den over the next few weeks because all the fans will turn up for those games.’
With Gillingham taking the lead in the game, it was Morison who had us back on level terms just five minutes later and it was his first goal since February, so he was obviously delighted with that.
‘That was an important goal because it was enough to get a point from the match. The lead up to that goal was the best football we have played in a long time. It was nice to get back on the scoresheet after a month without a goal. I feel like I have been playing quite well and I hope to put a few more away in the coming weeks.’
‘We showed good character to come back but we just couldn’t get it over the line and get the win despite having a lot of the ball late in the game.’
