Richard Chaplow and skipper Alan Dunne have both given interviews ahead of our trip to The Valley this weekend to face Charlton Athletic.

With history favouring Millwall in the derby clashes against Charlton, Chaplow was quick to point out to the official site that history would count for nothing over the course of the 90 minutes and Millwall would have to be on their game to get back to winning ways.

‘It’s going to be a very tough game. What’s happened before is all water under the bridge. All that matters is Saturday, where we hope to put a good performance in. They are doing well at the minute, we carried on our form into the start of the season and they have obviously done the same. We want to get back to winning ways and I feel that we are very close to doing that.’

With Chaplow referencing his debut for the club in a previous encounter, and commenting on how good at atmosphere he expects from the fans, Dunne went further and said he believed that fans had a huge role to play, and they will be there in their numbers with the club selling more than 3000 tickets for the match.

‘It’s always a fixture that everyone wants tickets for. Games between us and them are always good to be involved in, Saturday will be no different. Having over 3000 fans getting behind you will always help, no matter where you are playing or who you are up against. Our fans have really driven us on. That level of support can be key in games like these.’

With former Lion Bob Peeters now managing the side, Dunne says it’ll be a good opportunity for him to meet up again with his former team mate and he knows it’ll be a tough match for us because he thinks that potentially this is the best Charlton side he’s seen in the last few years and that they are well drilled under Peeters.
