Centre half Danny Shittu has said that the challenge for Millwall will be our defensive solidarity when we face Burnley and Sean Dyche.

As is obvious to anybody today, we welcome the lead leaders to The Den this Saturday and Millwall will be looking to make it three wins in our last four matches on home soil to keep that record going, as well as our overall two match unbeaten run.

Speaking to the official site Shittu said he’d been pleased with the improvement in the team in recent times, and he feels we have really kicked on since the last international break and having already played two of the top teams in the division – Reading and QPR – he doesn’t feel that we should be overly worried about Burnley, but the key will be performing how we have done in recent matches and not dropping those levels.

‘We are happy with the way things have gone (recently). We could maybe have got all three points on each occasion but at the same time, the two draws were good results.’

Shittu said importantly from the last two games, Millwall have learned a lot but also have taken a lot of confidence and belief from the games, so they all now that if they can now maintain those levels and then build on them, get tighter in our play and be a touch more clinical in front of goal then we can really turn our season around.

Obviously for Shittu his main focus in games remains helping us to clean sheets, and he knows the more of them we can keep the much better chance we have of three points because we only need to make one count at the other end of the pitch.
