Alan Dunne has paid tribute to the fans for how they have followed the team in numbers in games, especially the trip to Wigan.

Speaking to the official site following the one nil over Wigan giving us back to back victories following the three points over Nottingham Forest in our last match Dunne knows we have now given ourselves a really good chance to get out of the drop zone and more importantly we have shown what we are capable of, despite so many writing us off.

For the fans he says.

‘Credit to them, their support has been incredible. To work all week then spend their hard earned cash to go to Forest and then Wigan on a Tuesday night is definitely appreciated by the lads. I threw my top to our fans at the end to show some appreciation, and at least it wasn’t chucked back at me so I must have done alright!’

Of course Dunne’s returned as skipper has linked with back to back victories, and although he’s not going to take credit for that, he’s delighted to have played his part in recent matches.

‘It was a good performance by us, and important too coming on the back of our victory at Forest. People may have written us off but we are Millwall and we will fight to stay in this division – we are not going to go down without giving it everything we’ve got.’

Dunne goes on to say that he feels manager Ian Holloway deserves huge credit since he’s come in, because he didn’t arrive at the club with us in a particularly good place but he’s never waivered in his belief in the players and what he believes they are capable of achieving and even when results have gone our way, he has stayed true to that and kept them going and thankfully we are now getting the results we both want and need.

We have achieved nothing yet though and Dunne is acutely aware of that.

‘It’s important though that we don’t get carried away because we have still got five games to go and you just can’t predict anything in this division. Watford will come here on Saturday confident after their win, but we have to go out and approach it like a normal game, not build it up into being anything different. We’ve got to do our work, play our own game and see where we are at the end of that.’

Watford might be coming into the match confident, but surely we should be as well.
