Skipper Alan Dunne has said people shouldn’t write Millwall’s Great Escape hopes off just yet ahead of tonight’s game against Blackburn Rovers.

With a turn of form and performance levels of late, Dunne says he’s seen it all already during his time at Millwall, and the one thing he knows is that nobody should write the club off whilst there is still a mathematical chance of us earning survival over the remaining matches this season.

With three games remaining and the club sitting four points from safety, tonight’s match is huge and we will soon find out if the point against Cardiff at the weekend was massive or simply a case of two dropped.

A positive result in a few hours though would make it a very good point indeed.

Speaking to the official site ahead of the game, Dunne called on the team to continue playing to their strengths and remain cool and collected throughout matches from here on in to ensure we get the points we want and need.

‘Our run-in is difficult but we feel that we have a chance now. We have three huge games now starting at Blackburn on Tuesday. We are scrapping for our lives so it is up to us to get the job done. We have put the pressure on other teams before and have shown that we can play under pressure. We’ve survived the last two years by the skin of our teeth, but if we do it this time it will be the greatest escape ever by the club.’

Blackburn will certainly be a tough game and then it doesn’t get much easier with promotion hopefuls Derby County and Wolverhampton Wanderers both up in the final two games of the Championship campaign – but if we get the results we will know we’ve more than earned them at this stage of the season.
