Former Millwall striker giving League Two side chance of great escape – with former AFC Wimbledon loanee a key player

Steve Morison’s Sutton United moved out of the League Two relegation zone for the first time in 2024 after a 3-1 win over Swindon on Monday.

The former Millwall striker took over in mid-January after the U’s sacked long-standing boss Matt Gray, with Morison leaving non-league side Hornchurch to manage in the EFL.

Morison has claimed four wins on the bounce against Forest Green, Accrington Stanley, Salford and now Swindon to move out of the bottom two.

Charlie Lakin started the season on loan at League Two rivals AFC Wimbledon but was sent back to parent club Burton in January.

The 24-year-old was then shipped out to Sutton and has become a key player under Morison, scoring five goals and picking up four assists in 17 outings.

Sutton are one point clear of 23rd-placed Colchester, who have played three games fewer heading into the final few weeks of the League Two season.
