Manager Ian Holloway has talked again of trying to build something at Millwall, turn around our form, and get ourselves going again and for that to happen he says it’s key that everybody sticks together.

With eleven games remaining this season to pull off another relegation battle escape, following the Middlesbrough defeat we are six points away from safety and Holloway told the official site that he remained confident we would get the points we needed.

‘What we need to do now is show the same type of togetherness, spirit and commitment to the cause as we all managed to do this time last season. The energy around the place then was absolutely immense and that helped the lads to perform at their absolute best. We need that again and, so long as the players continue to show the enormous amount of effort and passion that they have been doing, then I’m sure the fans will help to create a positive atmosphere which both helps us and makes it hard for teams to come to The Den and play how they want to.’

Of course with Norwich City up next that will be another tough challenge, especially given our form, and with Holloway saying basically the players seemed to bottle it after we wasted a chance in midweek, Norwich are more than capable of making it another uncomfortable weekend unless the players do show the response that we know they are capable of giving but haven’t seen for a while now.

Looking to the bigger picture, he went on to talk about the youngsters we have coming through and how encouraged he had been by their progress over the course of the season even though things aren’t quite going for us on the pitch.

‘We’re trying to build a better club here at Millwall – a process that takes time – but we are laying some great foundations for the future. The progress of some of our younger players this season has been hugely encouraging and I want to see a Millwall side that is packed full of our own lads. We have already seen glimpses of what the current crop are capable of achieving.’

As for Norwich, we have no fresh injury concerns but that does mean we are still without Shaun Cummings, Stefan Maierhofer, Lee Martin, and Paris Cowan-Hall and Carlos Edwards are long termers.
