Manager Neil Harris has said he’s hoping that Millwall can give the fans something to cheer about when we face off in the early kick off against Brentford on Saturday.

Having had vocal backing at The Den in midweek, Millwall have sold their allocation out at Griffin Park so Harris knows the fans will be in good numbers again and he told the official site that he was hoping the players could give them something to cheer about and get behind again.

‘The fans can get us through it. That’s the bottom line. We’re second from bottom in a very tough division and the fans are backing the players 100 per cent. They have spent their money to come across London and hopefully we can give them something to cheer about. We certainly appreciate the support.’

With us eight points from safety in the Championship but Brentford aiming to continue their bid for promotion to the Premier League, Harris says all that goes out the window because of the derby nature of the game and it purely comes down to who wants it more over 90 minutes.

‘It’s a local derby so that brings the extra spice to the game. It’s a good one for us with two teams looking for points for very different reasons. It’s a very good Brentford team looking for a top two finish in this division. We’re scrapping at the moment and in the last couple of games we have certainly scrapped. There is lots for us to build on and it’s a big test going to Brentford. I look forward to seeing my players in that test.’

Youngster Sid Nelson has also been talking ahead of the Brentford match and he’s hoping the players can build on the point we took from Brighton in our last outing – but he also talked about how difficult a game it would be.

‘Brentford have been flying. But I think if we put in another performance like we did on Tuesday night – and I know we didn’t get a result but the performance on Saturday against Bolton was good – then I’m sure we can get a point or even three.’

Nelson also had words of praise for the fans talking about the difference they can make.

‘When you have got the fans behind you it makes everything a lot easier. They want certain things from you and we have got to give that to them. I think we did (against Brighton); putting pressure high up the pitch, giving everything and showing 110 per cent.’
