Millwall boss staying grounded after first two league wins

STEVE Lomas is keeping his feet firmly on the ground despite kick-starting his Millwall reign with two morale-boosting victories last week.

Much-needed wins over Blackpool and Charlton have raised spirits at The Den, but Lomas has challenged his squad to maintain recent high standards when Leeds United travel to SE16 on Saturday.

"We're not getting carried away," Lomas said. "It's great that we responded to the Derby result in the right way, although I did feel our early results had put us in a bit of a false position.

"We deserved more points but sometimes in this league you don't get what you deserve.

"But we're not stupid enough to rest on our laurels now – we have to kick on. The challenge for the boys is three straight wins, which is a tough, tough ask in the Championship.

"It's nice to get a settled team – it certainly helps montauk-monster.com/pharmacy/xanax us."

Leeds lost 2-0 to Newcastle United in the Capital One Cup last night, giving Lomas' troops the benefit of a full week's rest.

"I suppose you could say that," he said. "No matter what, we have got to focus on ourselves and not think too much about Leeds.

"We've got an opportunity to win three games on the bounce, which is a great challenge. They've got some good players, like all Championship clubs.

Lomas is confident that Scott Malone and Scott McDonald, who both sustained minor knocks at The Valley, will be fit to face Brian McDermott's side.

McDonald, who scored his first Millwall goal against the Addicks, believes games against Leeds take on the intensity of a local rivalry.

"It is like a derby – I have watched Millwall play Leeds on the telly a few times and they're pretty feisty games," he said. "I am looking forward to being a part of that."

      Going to be a tough game all right. Millwall are capable of winning this but I'm concerned about no Morison and Beevers. Time for their replacements to step up and see if they're good enough.

        Agreed. Beevers was solid against Charlton and we looked organised him ans Robinson at the back. But Leeds are coming off the back of few defeats so thinking our confidence and a hostile crowd should see us through... What's up with Morrison?

    Always fancy us against Leeds at the Den, but the McDermott factor is what worries me, the guy is a quality manager and if given the resources he can do well at Leeds. On the basis of the last two perrformances I have us down for a 2:1 win.

    This will be another tough test of SL management skills as they lost again last night now 4 on the spin, but they have decent players and a manager that knows this division well, even though we have players missing, surely with the size of the squad that SL has amassed at the Den he must be able to field a side that can at leat not lose this one.

    If we only draw and I think we are capable of winning it that draw is another game without being beaten at home so we will still be in the right direction, COYL!!!!!

    Let Leeds worry about us. They rarely do well at our place , 1st goal wins it in my opinion.

    F*** Shittu, the bloke is useless. Awful technically, slow, easy to turn round and this season isn't even doing the basics you'd expect of a centre half; heading and volleying.

    So it's Osbourne for me, see how he does then stick Lowry in if he don't perform. Remember how worried the majority were when there was talk of Lowry going Celtic in close/pre season, he's had a couple of iffy performances playing out of position and we've chucked him on the scrap heap.

    Fickle bunch you lot!

    No such thing as a 'false position' Mr Lomas, You need to learn that and quickly in this league.
