MILLWALL'S players want to put on a show for the cameras when a resurgent Cardiff City arrive at The Den tomorrow, according to Ian Holloway.

The Lions' lunctime clash with the Bluebirds is being screened live on television.

And Holloway wants his side to put on an entertaining display for the audience at home.

"We've got a chance to show people how well we can play and the lads understand that," he said.

"It would be nice to capitalise on our crowd, get at Cardiff and get a home win.

"I know that our fans will be absolutely magnificent once again because they enjoyed our comeback and goals against Wolves."

Holloway says Millwall fans should be optimistic after three straight draws.

"We are competing in every game and I think we will get a win soon," he said.

"Our performance at Wigan was excellent – I have watched the game again and all we lacked was a goal. We got better as the game went on.

"Our next challenge is dealing with suspensions and injuries.

"Alan Dunne is banned this weekend and we've still got Mathias Ranegie and Nicky Bailey out. These things add up.

"If you look at our performances this year, we deserve to be a bit higher up the league and that should come by the end of the season.

"We've drawn three in a row – it could have been a lot better or a lot worse.

"There are positives everywhere and I'm trying to get the balance of the squad right so that we can compete in this division at a higher level than we have done in recent years.

"If we get that win tomorrow, we could be up to 13th. And then if you get another one, like Cardiff have just done, then you can really climb the table.

"Who's to say it can't start on Saturday? Blackpool beat Cardiff the other week so you never know what can happen in football."

Danny Shittu could replace the suspended Dunne at the heart of the Lions' back four.

Holloway added: "I've got more than enough options at centre back – Shittu, Shaun Williams and Mark Beevers.

"I don't know how many games he could play in on the bounce but Shittu is definitely fit enough to start."

    Don't talk up what ya gunna do boys, just go out there and do it!! Let Ollie's plans for an interesting displays translate into goals , just make it happen. The only thing I see as a guarantee is the fans usual raucous performance. Let that be the example and perform accordingly.

    Totally agree Mitchamscaff, sod the TV camera's weve got a job to do , 3 points nothing less, them welsh tw**ts are buzzing after doing forest & ipswich, so we need to be top of our game & send them back to the valleys with FA. We need the points & start climbing away from the relegation zone , far to close for comfort

    We need a win today to kick start our season. The good news is that we generally perform better against the better footballing sides. So hopefully we may provide both an entertains and winning show today possibly helped along by some less questionable refereeing
