A DOU­BLE KNOCK­OUT

Midweek Sport - - SPORT -

two-and-a-half-year deal with the League One club.

Mo­rais signed the con­tract on the day the fourth-round draw was made.

He said: “It was a great day for me. I was de­lighted to sign, then I got home and watched the draw and I was over the moon.”

Mill­wall boss Ian Hol­loway is des­per­ate to lift the storm clouds hang­ing over the club.

The Lions lie in the Cham­pi­onship rel­e­ga­tion zone fol­low­ing four suc­ces­sive league de­feats.

But Hol­loway is pray­ing his un­der-per­form­ing play­ers can bring some cheer to disgruntled fans.

“I com­pletely un­der­stand the frus­tra­tion of the fans and we are des­per­ate to im­prove for them,” said Hol­loway

“We need to change the at­mos­phere around the place and a win would do that.”

New sign­ing Shaun Cum­mings is un­avail­able for the re­play.
