Morison aims to land new Den deal.

WALES international striker Steve Morison is confident he can reach a target number of games required to trigger a contract extension with Cardiff City's weekend opponents, Millwall.

Morison's current deal expires at the end of this campaign, and he will be close to his 35th birthday at the start of next season.

Morison is well on course to reach the target set out in his contract, having missed just one of Millwall's 13 Championship games to date.

His appearance record since he re-joined the club from Leeds in 2015 is impressive. He played 50 times in all competitions last season and 57 the season before.

But Morison joked that if some Millwall supporters had their way, he would not be at the club past this season.

"If we get to those milestones then we'll have that conversation," Morison said.

"If someone wants to talk to me about staying I'll have to make sure they don't talk to some of the fans because I won't be here in that case!

"We have to wait and see. I have a clause in my contract where I have to achieve certain goals and if I do then we'll talk about a new deal.

"It's down to the manager and the hierarchy if they want me and I'm fit.

"I've just got to keep playing. There are 30-odd games left and I'd like to think I'm going to play a few more."

Morison was back from injury and wearing the captain's armband in the 2-0 win over Birmingham last weekend.

He has been skipper this season with Tony Craig unable to win a place in the side, and he is enjoying the experience of leading the team.

He said: "I just wear it and do my job. If the players need someone to look to or talk to on the pitch or off it then I'm happy to do it.

"I enjoy it, I like being captain here. If I'm captain it means I'm playing so I'm quite happy with that."
