NORWICH striker Steve Morison has credited Kenny Jackett with forging him into a Premier League striker.

Morison, 28, who left Millwall for the Canaries last summer in a £2.1million deal, has scored eight top-flight goals this season.

And the Wales internationals believes he owes it all to Jackett, who infamously gave him a furious dressing down after a 2-0 defeat to Wycombe in 2009, as revealed in Michael Calvin's book Family: Life, Death and Football.

“People have read the story in a book published about that Millwall season," he told the Daily Star.

“It turned out to be a defining moment for me and it becomes relevant.

“But that incident got picked up by the manager because we lost that game. He dug me out for it, I managed to respond and in the end we got promoted.

“Since then I’ve realised that mentality is a massive thing."
