Morison: Millwall won't dwell on "abnormal" refereeing calls

MILLWALL striker Steve Morison doesn't want any excuses as the countdown begins in Millwall's Sky Bet League One campaign. 

The Lions have 10 league games remaining and face Sheffield United this weekend hoping to boost their promotion hopes by completing a double over Nigel Adkins' side this season after a 2-1 win at Bramall Lane in October.

Millwall felt they were hard done by last weekend when referee Kevin Wright awarded a questionable penalty against Carlos Edwards to allow Swindon launch a comeback from two goals behind and deny the visitors all three points.

But Morison knows that Millwall's destiny is in their own hands ahead of the clash with the eleventh-placed Blades on Saturday.

"It's an easy excuse when you're losing games or stuff like that happens," the current Lions captain said of poor decisions.

"I just thought it was a bit abnormal on Saturday for a game that didn't seem too physical. To have 17 fouls given against you in one half and only four for and the penalty looking soft as well was a bit frustrating.

"From a forward's point of view I felt we were marked very aggressively and I thought there were a lot of times where we definitely could have had fouls for us and they weren't given.

"But we can't dwell on it, can't change it, so we crack on now."
