Steve Morison is loving Norwich City’s Championship work but pledges Millwall will raise their game against his old club as they scrap for survival.

The Lions may have an FA Cup quarter-final to look forward to but have lost their last two in the league and sit only four points above the relegation zone, ahead of facing Daniel Farke’s title contenders.

“They have done brilliant,” said Morison, who scored 10 goals in 53 league appearances for the Canaries between 2011 and 2013. “Every time you see them they’re fantastic.

“It will be a tough game against a very, very good team. Hopefully we can do what we do when the odds are against us.

“I think they have sold out both tiers as a few (Norwich) people like to tell me. They’re really proud of themselves for doing that. I don’t know why they want to text me and tell me about it, I don’t really care. They feel like they want to tell me about it, so I’m really pleased for them.”

Millwall were beaten 3-1 at home by Alex Neil’s Preston last weekend before losing 2-1 at Hull.

“Obviously it’s frustrating, we could have been seven points clear (of the bottom three), but we are still four clear,” said Morison, speaking to the News at Den. “One of those teams or two of those teams have got to win back-to-back games, which I don’t think they have done all year, so we need to keep plugging away.
