The City boss...

Morison pre-Millwall | I hope my players enjoy it

Steve Morison spoke to the press ahead of Saturday's trip to Millwall, with the City boss urging his men to replicate the performance they produced against Peterborough United on Wednesday evening.

"We're in a results business, and the result was excellent," Steve began. "The performance was exactly how we wanted it to go, but once the game was done we started preparing on work for the next game. 

"It's all positive at the minute, but we know how quickly all that can change if we don't do our job properly at the weekend. We just want consistency in performance. As our message is always, get the performance right first, and the result normally comes along with that.

"We’ll have a game plan to beat Millwall, and I’d like to think that if we carry out the game plan as we did in the Peterborough game, and like we did against Nottingham Forest, then the result should be a positive one."

Jordan Hugill, Uche Ikpeazu

Morro commented on the impact made by strike duo Jordan Hugill and Uche Ikpeazu, who have both already scored two goals in City colours since their recent arrivals at the Club.

He said: "They've been excellent. Both of them scored excellent goals that night, with their little movements away to then burst across their man at the front post, and the lads have put the ball on a plate for them.

"They are both great lads. The feedback that we had for all of the players prior to signing them was great, and that really helps. You need to find out all about them, and they are great characters.

"I'm really pleased with how they've done so far, and hopefully there are more goals to come from them before the end of the season."

Steve Morison, Joe Ralls

Having made over 300 appearances for the Lions, Steve also spoke about his return to The Den this weekend, with the aim of taking three points from his former side.

"They gave me my chance. I had a really good time there, seven good years over three periods. All of the things that I did there have stood me in good stead for being a manager now, because I experienced a lot.

"A lot of the stuff that myself, Mark and Tom lean on in the office is from personal experience, and my experiences at Millwall have given me that knowledge of what is required to stay up, to get promoted, to consolidate a league position.

"I've never been back there, even as an opposing player, so there will be a little bit of extra edge to it. I always enjoyed playing there, and I hope my players enjoy it. But ultimately, I'm definitely not going to enjoy it unless we win the game."
