To start the league season with an away win has given the club a real boost.

I still maintain this will be a tough season of development for ourselves.

We are bound to hit a rough patch and suffer setbacks along the way as demonstrated by our 2-1 extra-time Capital One Cup defeat by Barnet on Tuesday, but the longer we can string league results together the more we can achieve.

The signing of a big striker in Steve Morison was a significant move by the club. Before this we looked like we lacked firepower up front.

Millwall supporters will hope that Morison can reproduce the form he showed in his first spell at the club, which made him a Welsh International and resulted in a big money move to Norwich City.

Less experienced strikers Lee Gregory, John Marquis, Aiden O’Brien and Jamie Philpot will learn a lot from playing alongside him.

Morison has started well, netting in both of our matches even though he missed a penalty against Barnet.

Indeed both of our starting strikers at Shrewsbury got off the mark with Morison and Gregory turning round a 1-0 deficit to earn a win in front of more than 1,500 Millwall supporters.

We controlled the match well after taking the lead and that has given supporters optimism heading into two home league matches against Coventry City this Saturday and then Barnsley on Tuesday night.

Coventry, in particular have been tipped to do well this season so it will be good to see how we measure up against them.

Manager Neil Harris has moved to bring in 24-year-old left-sided Newcastle United player Shane Ferguson as Joe Martin is out with an ankle ligament injury picked up by blocking a shot in training.

The Lions drew Peterborough at home in the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy which although being the least important competition, provides us with great memories when Harris was a player and we made the final at the Old Wembley Stadium in 1999.
