Millwall boss eyes ten-point mark ahead of Pool reunion

IAN Holloway has challenged Millwall to go into the international break with ten points on the board ahead of tomorrow's clash with former club Blackpool.

The Lions can cement their impressive start to the new Championship season with victory over the struggling Seasiders before a two-week pause in the fixture schedule.

A win is likely to see Holloway's side move into the top six after the first batch of league games.

"It's great that we made a good start to the season – that hasn't happened for a while – but we've lost two on the spin and we've got to stop this little rot, particularly at home," he said.

"Hopefully the few injuries I had from last Saturday will be cleared up by Blackpool because the league is our bread and butter.

"Can we get a win, at home, to get us ten points out of 15? Because that’s what it’s all about."

Three points would come at the expense of Holloway's ex-employers Blackpool, who he guided to the Premier League.

But he said "Playing Blackpool isn't special for me – not at all.

"Nathan Delfouneso might be the only player who is in the squad from my time there. It's all water under the bridge. I did the best job I could for Blackpool and I work for Millwall now.

"It's just like any other Championship game for me."

    10 out of 15 will do me cheers. Bailey and Upson back after this game, a settled defence with good cover excluding the goalie and an attack that will have 2 weeks on the training ground to gel.

          @NICKOLA: He covers a lot of ground Nick, unfortunately it's often in the wrong places.

    Lost a bit of confidence in team after last Saturdays performance/result.
    Still don`t think we have found that goalscorer we need,
    Agree Jim we need to be more attacking at Home and that takes playing 2 strikers.

          Seems we have a few who dont rate shittu! I remember when ollie first came shittu was solid! Admittedly after his injury he was his name sake! Mark my words, the fat boy will come good again! The mental one has a way of working his magic with him
