With tonight’s clash against Peterborough United at The Den, skipper Tony Craig has said Millwall will be looking for revenge following the heaviest defeat of the season at their ground.

Speaking to the official site in his pre game press conference, Craig looked back to the five one defeat six months ago at London Road and whilst he knew it was a humbling result, it’s one that will certainly fire the players up ahead of tonight’s kick off.

‘It’s an important game for us and a rematch we have been looking forward to. We certainly know their strengths and weaknesses and they will say the same about us. Our home record is very good and we hope that the fans will get behind us as we look to get back into the top six.’

Having been held to the scoreless draw against Oldham Athletic last Saturday, Craig believed it would be a ‘valuable’ point in the run in and although there was disappointment at not taking all three points, he was pleased with the clean sheet on the day.

‘It was a valuable point, especially looking back at the conditions we had to play in. We couldn’t play as fluently as we would have liked but it will be a good point at the end of the day.’

He also had praise for young goalkeeper Tom King who filled in for Jordan Archer once more and picked up his second straight shut out.

‘He’s a very good, young keeper and he has a bright future ahead of him. He has pulled off some great saves and is settling in really well. We start defending from the front and we have a great team that knows the importance of doing the little things right. We are getting clean sheets but unfortunately we haven’t been scoring either, hopefully that will change on Tuesday night.’
