Midfielder Jimmy Abdou has said that the camp remain positive that they can get their home form in 2015-16 going in the coming weeks and notch up that first home win.

With Millwall and manager Neil Harris still waiting for the first home victory of the campaign, Abdou said that a win is everybody’s target when we face Rochdale this weekend at The Den.

Speaking to the official site as the game nears, the 31 year old explained.

‘We’re still looking for the formula to win at home but hopefully it is going to come. Everyone is still focused and everyone is working hard. I think we showed good character on Saturday and I think we have to keep that positivity and go again. For the last couple of weeks we’ve been working hard and the manager has tried some new things to do something different and it works away. Now we have to find the formula to win at home.’

As for early team news ahead of the game so far, defender Byron Webster is to be assessed after taking heavy ankle bruising in the defeat to Southend last weekend.

The 28 year old hasn’t suffered ligament or muscle damage following the challenge late on in the game, but Harris needs to see if it settles down enough for him to come into contention.

Shaun Cummings is set for a return to training today following the hamstring he suffered, so it will have to be seen if he comes into contention.

Sid Nelson continues his rehabilitation following a rib problem and Kris Twardek is now returning to training and stepping things up following his fracture dislocation to his toe.

Paris Cowan-Hall picked up a groin muscle problem following a heavy challenge in Monday’s Under 21 Development squad match and the full severity there is yet to be discovered as we let it settle down but he’s out for this game at best.

Finally Joe Martin also made his return in the same game on Monday following his own ankle injury, so he will be assessed late to see where his fitness sits.

In other news, Millwall are warning fans that the games against Doncaster Rovers and Burton Albion that are set for October and November respectively could be rearranged depending on how many international call ups we have in the next window.

If we receive three or more call ups, the Doncaster visit to The Den will bounce from October 10 to Tuesday October 27 with a 7.45pm kick off, and should the same apply for our trip to the Pirelli Stadium to face Burton on November 14 that will also suffer a switch – but a rearranged date is yet to be set between the clubs.
