Who better to speak to ahead of Saturday's game than a former City and current Millwall goalscoring ace? That's right. No-one. Andrew Lawn chats to Steve Morison about whether Carrow Road is an intimidating place to come, Paul Lambert and what his future holds.
How do you feel this season has gone for Millwall? Expectations seemed quite high given how well you finished last season and you have had some excellent results this (including beating Ipswich 3-0 obviously...) but 16 games in, you're only just outside the drop zone
Our season hasn’t been as good as how we ended last season but despite outside expectations within the football club we still know that our target for the season is to get to 50 points and build from there.
We need to sort our away form out and not wait until January like last year but we must also continue our excellent home form.
Why do you think it hasn't quite gone to plan this season? Second season syndrome or something else?
It just hasn’t. We’ve been playing well and just haven’t had the luck at times. Sometimes we haven’t played that well and in this league, you get punished.
What have you made of City's start to the season and the way Farke has us playing?
You’ve had a very good start and are sitting pretty in the table but as we all know it’s a long season and it’s not won before Christmas.
What are you hoping for ahead of your return to Carrow Road? No more long-range volleys please...
I’m hoping for a positive result as it’s been a very long time since we have won at Carrow Road. That said, records both good and bad are there to be broken, so hopefully we can do that on Saturday.
Would you rather score a hat-trick and draw 3-3 or nick a 1-0 win, but play no part?
100% nick a 1-0 win.
We believe you. You played under Lambert during those glorious years, how do you think he'll get on at Ipswich, and how much did he rely on Culverhouse and Karsa?
If he’s given time, then he will do very well. He‘s a good manager and makes people want to play for him and with Gilly with him as a good coach then I’m sure he’ll do well.
Your teammate in those days, Russ Martin recently took his first steps into coaching, is that something you'd like to get into or is the plan still greyhound racing?
Yeah that’s my plan as well - I’m on my Pro License and not far off completing that but I feel I still have a few years left playing in me. I’ve never wanted to go into Greyhound racing.
Finally, we’re big on trying to improve the atmosphere here. How much of a difference did the vocal backing at Carrow Road make while you were here and is it an intimidating place to come still?
It’s not an intimidating place to come but as a home player when it’s going well it’s a nice place to play your football because they get behind the team.
