Defender Byron Webster has said he believes Millwall can more than target the play off spots in the second half of the season.

Sitting in eighth place and only one point off Peterborough United in sixth following on from last weekend’s three one victory over Port Vale at The Den, Webster told the official site that with the firepower at the club he saw no reason why making a promotion push back to the Championship at the first time asking would be unrealistic, as long as Millwall can keep consistency in their performances.

With last weekend seeing Lee Gregory take his tally for the season to 13, and with Aiden O’Brien and Steve Morison on ten so far for the year, Webster says as long as we remain tight at the back and create the chances for them to stick away, we can be sitting pretty in the table come May.

‘We’ve got the players who can counter attack and pick teams off. It makes our job a lot easier and when you can go into half-time at 3-0 up, like we did on Sunday, then you can be more relaxed. We’re a confident group who believe in each other and we get along on and off the pitch, and there isn’t many teams that have the same firepower that we do.’

With 27 games to his name so far this year, next up is Saturday’s trip to Chesterfield following by the hosting of bottom placed Crewe Alexandra, and Webster knows that taking six points from those games could close the gap on Peterborough and Wigan in fifth who are eight points clear.

‘If we can keep picking up results then we are going to be there or thereabouts. We want to be around the Play-Offs and putting pressure on the teams above us, and it’s all about who can handle that. We want to be playing for something come the end of the season and we will be working our hardest to ensure that happens.’
