Manager Steve Lomas has said that although he’s delighted to see Millwall finally get their season started with the 3-1 victory over Blackpool in midweek, it’s not a turning point for the club yet, but we may have entered the corner.

The victory came courtesy of goals from Liam Trotter, Nicky Bailey and Steve Morison, and of course it was our first three points of the season and whilst it might not count for much at this early stage of the season, I’m sure the players are looking at the table with more relief now we are no longer sitting in bottom place.

Speaking to Sky Sports News, the manager explained that you could see the confidence boost that the players had been given following the performance and victory in training, and his aim now was to make that back to back victories when we face of against Charlton this weekend at The Valley.

‘I don’t think it’s a full turning point, but it certainly helps. It would be great get back to back wins but we know it’s not going to be easy.’

Lomas adds that the result was the perfect boost to take into the Charlton derby, and whilst he was expecting a tough match, he and the players know it’s about bragging rights for the fans and they will be doing their all to grab the second victory of the campaign.

Speaking to the press, skipper Paul Robinson acknowledged the flak that had come Lomas’ way so far this season given our run of form, and he said that the gaffer has really thrown himself into training to try and gee the boys up, so finally getting the three points is something the gaffer can be well pleased about.

‘It was important for the club and the manager. He’s worked very hard since he’s been here, I’m sure he’ll savour his first three points, because they have been a little while coming. Hopefully we can build on this result.’

In quotes carried by another outlet, Robinson went on to say.

‘Steve gets more involved in the banter – more of an active personality whereas Kenny would be more observant. He likes being part of it and has a bubbly personality.’

If the players have taken to him as Robbo seems to suggest then that can only bode well when the newbies have settled in and we start to get ourselves on a run of form, because they’ll be determined to not only get the results for themselves and the fans, but also for the gaffer if he’s being fair and honest with them aswell.

Hopefully it will be back to back victories pushing us closer to midtable, as that will help take the pressure off.
