Millwall striker Steve Morison always knew that he could be a success in League One, despite making a slow start to his Lions career.

The summer signing from non-league Stevenage Borough struggled to make the step-up at the start of the season, scoring just twice in his first 18 games for the capital outfit.

However, since then he has gone on to notch 19 goals in all competitions, including 17 in League One, and the 26-year-old insists it was always a case of when not if he found his shooting boots.

"It has been a good season, despite the slow start to life for me here," Morison told skysports.com.

"I only managed to score something like twice in my first 18 games, but since then I've really found my feet.

"I've kicked on from there and getting promotion would be a brilliant way to cap the season off.

Confident

"It was a matter of when I started to hit the net regularly rather than if really and I think it was just a matter of tinkering my game a little.

"I needed to find out the best way for me to succeed at this level and I'm confident that I've found that now, so it has worked out well for everyone."

The Lions are locked in a four-way battle for automatic promotion this season, with Swindon, Leeds and Charlton also battling for second place, but Morison insists they need to focus on what they are doing rather than concern themselves with what their rivals do from now until the end of the season.

"We won against both Charlton and Leeds, which was a huge boost because we knew that if we did that we would have a chance of ousting them for the second automatic promotion spot," he added.

"We now are relying on other sides dropping points, but it doesn't matter what they do because we just need to concentrate on our side of things.

"If we do that well then we will have a chance of beating the others to second place."
