Boss praise for Millwall captain after assists against Preston and Hull City

NEIL Harris has praised club skipper Steve Morison’s influence in the last two games.

Morison came on at half-time against Preston and after 13 minutes against Hull City and set up a goal in each game.

Harris made three changes to his side at Hull, with Ryan Tunnicliffe, Shane Ferguson and Ben Thompson coming into the side at the end of a hectic February when Millwall played seven games.

Morison set up Shaun Hutchinson’s equaliser but the Tigers went on to win 2-1.

“I thought Moro was excellent, with his leadership qualities,” Harris said. “I thought he was excellent when he came on Saturday, I thought Ben was excellent when he came on Saturday.

“That is why I put Moro on so early in the game, played Ben from the start. That’s why Fergie played. I thought again all three were very, very good

“Tom Elliott is disappointed with how he played the other day, so he is desperate to play and make amends. The lads want to play. Everyone is going to be needed over the next 12 league games. Twelve cup finals and a big FA Cup quarter-final.

“Everyone is going to get their fair share of minutes.”

Meanwhile, James Meredith has an outside chance of being fit to face Norwich on Saturday. First-choice left-back Murray Wallace is likely to be out after going off injured against Hull.
