The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP -

STEVE Mori­son hopes to make a mock­ery of the old adage ‘you should never go back’ and in­stead make it ‘third time lucky’ at Mill­wall.

The 31-year-old striker first played at The Den from 2009-2011 be­fore be­ing loaned back from Leeds in 2013 and this week signed a one-year deal for Neil Harris’s team.

And with 120 starts in a Lions shirt head­ing into the week­end, as well as 48 goals, Mori­son is con­fi­dent he can eclipse his pre­vi­ous spells at the club and erase the rel­e­ga­tion dis­ap­point­ment of last sea­son.

“I am ab­so­lutely de­lighted and back where I want to be,” he said.“I’m ex­cited about com­ing here and look­ing for­ward to play­ing games of football, be­cause I have missed that.

“I know what this place is all about. I know what Neil is all about, I know what the fans are all about.

“I am not com­ing here un­der any il­lu­sions that this is go­ing to be an easy ride.

“I am play­ing for my fu­ture and the club needs to get back to where it should be, and hope­fully we have ev­ery­thing in place to get us there.”
