Scunthorpe United 2-3 Millwall (agg: 2-3)

Steve Morison
Millwall forward Steve Morison scored his 17th and 18th goals of the season against Scunthorpe

Steve Morison played a starring role as Millwall came from behind to beat Scunthorpe and set up a League One play-off final against Bradford City.

The Lions had fallen behind to Ivan Toney's tap-in, but Morison headed them level on the stroke of half-time and then set up Lee Gregory for 2-1.

Morison's deflected shot gave the away side breathing space, although Stephen Dawson's strike set up a nervy finish.

Millwall have reached the final at Wembley for the second season in a row.

Neil Harris' side will now meet the Bantams on Saturday, 20 May - the same team they beat at the semi-final stage of last year's play-offs.

Having been held to a goalless draw in the first leg by Scunthorpe, the Lions looked to be falling short when Toney, on loan from Championship title-winners Newcastle, fired the Iron ahead at Glanford Park.

But, having made it 1-1 moments before the break, 33-year-old forward Morison proved the difference between the sides after half-time.

First he superbly cut inside to tee up strike partner Gregory, before scoring his 18th goal of the season to send Millwall to the final.
