Striker Aiden O’Brien has said he believes that facing Scunthorpe United in the next League One match could be the best thing for Millwall given recent results.

With successive defeats to Wycombe Wanderers in the EFL Trophy and Shrewsbury Town in the league last weekend, Millwall go into the game against the current table toppers looking for a result that gets us back to winning ways, and O’Brien believes that challenge and the test we will face should enable everyone to dust themselves off and get back to their best once more.

Speaking to the official site in his own pre game press conference ahead of this weekend’s action, the striker explained that if we wanted to view it as an ‘unlucky’ week so far, then we had to prove that in the next game and get back to winning ways.

‘We have to learn from the Wycombe and Shrewsbury defeats and move on. What better way to do that than with a match against the League leaders.’

With the opposition suffering only their third defeat of the current campaign to Rochdale last weekend, O’Brien went on to say that nobody would be under any illusions to how tough a match it would in fact be this coming Saturday.

‘We need to make sure we have clear heads because this will be one of the biggest tests of our season. They are flying at the moment but they lost at the weekend and that is another testament to the unpredictability of this league.’

As for a brief thought on Shrewsbury Town given the dominance in position that we had, but a failure for the fourth time this year in not scoring, O’Brien said everybody was disappointed as clearly it was a game we should’ve won – but perform like that and more often than not all three points will go our way.

‘We all have to chip in to find the back of the net. It’s not just down to the strikers, it’s about building up our attack as a team and then taking our chances when they come.’
