Striker and hattrick hero Lee Gregory has said that Millwall can’t afford to lose hope despite our Championship fate sitting in the hands of the Rotherham v Reading encounter tonight.

With us failing to hold on for the win against Derby County at the weekend, a result that would have seen us take advantage of Rotherham’s points deduction and leapfrog them in the table to put safety in our own hands, speaking to News Shopper following the game Gregory was obviously pleased with his first professional hattrick, he just wished it had counted for more.

‘I don`t think we will get relegated. I think we will pull out of it, I really do. I think the pressure is on Rotherham, it is better to be behind rather than in front. If Rotherham don`t get a result on Tuesday and it`s all to play for. I`ll definitely be watching at home and hopefully Reading can do the business. Hopefully Rotherham will bottle it on the last day of the season and we get a win at Wolves.’

Manager Neil Harris has said for himself he won’t be watching the game.

As for the game against Derby itself, he went on to say.

‘It feels like a defeat. I was a little lucky today with two penalties, but I don`t care how they come as they`re goals. When I missed a penalty against Charlton, Chopper said ‘Don`t worry about it` and I`ve been in training the last few weeks practicing penalties all week. I knew I was going that side and it paid off. I`ve been predicting the penalties the last few weeks, I was going that way. I tell the goalkeepers to try and save it in training. I`m always going to go the same way and the keeper has to try and save it.’

We’ll know in a few hours if Gregory’s faith has been rewarded.
