Club skipper Paul Robinson has said that he doesn’t feel Millwall could’ve been given a more exciting start to the season, and whilst he remains at the training ground whilst the other lads are away in Portugal, his message as skipper to them, is to make sure we make the most of the exciting start we have been given.

We open up the 2014-15 campaign at The Den on Saturday August 9 with a game against Leeds United and then a week later we face newly relegated side Fulham.

Speaking to the official site Robinson said it was about time we turned The Den back into the fortress is should be and he challenged the players to do just that when we open the campaign properly.

‘It’s always one to get the pulses racing no matter what stage of the season. The adrenaline is that little bit higher and there’s optimism. Everybody is coming back and will have missed their football over the summer, especially with the way the World Cup has gone. They (fans) will be looking forward to getting down to The Den and watching some football.’

Robbo goes on to say that good teams ultimately win their home matches, and they make their home ground a fortress and somewhere that visitors don’t like going, and he knows that we need to get back to that, and it’s not just down to the fans and the atmosphere, it’s down to the players, how they perform, fight and battle and ultimately the results they pick up.

‘Being at home first up gives us a great opportunity to start the season off on the front foot and that’s what we’ll be looking to do. It’s a great game and we’re backing it up with a local derby against Fulham as well a week after. They are two great games to focus the mind and get us through this hard work that’s coming up.’
