McDonald: Cardiff won't enjoy facing Millwall at The Den

SCOTT McDonald says Cardiff won't enjoy coming to The Den tomorrow.

The attacker claims no team in the Championship looks forward to their trip to Bermondsey – and insists Millwall are confident of beating anyone on home soil.

The Bluebirds are in high spirits after winning their first two games under new boss Russell Slade, but McDonald is confident of upsetting the form guide.

He said: "There's nobody I fear in this league, especially at home. We can beat anyone.

"I don't think teams enjoy coming to The Den so hopefully we can start well and get the first goal.

"After two wins on the bounce, Cardiff's tails will be up and it will be a tough game but it's one that we're looking forward to.

"You only have to look at their wage bill to know they are a good team.

"Their start to the season was poor and that is why their manager lost his job, but the new man has come in and they've started to pick up some good results."

Millwall go into Saturday's clash on the back of a goalless stalemate at Wigan – their third straight draw.

Reflecting on the game, McDonald added: "The pitch was rubbish and the conditions played their part, but it was a strange one really levitra because neither team created much.

"We were solid and that's very important away from home – that's two clean sheets on the bounce on our travels – so we've been hard to beat.

"Nicking a goal in our next away game would be ideal. But the key for us at the moment is being tight at the back and difficult to beat.

"On the whole we can't be too disappointed because it's a long journey home and the last thing you want to be doing is going home with a defeat.

"A point is better than none so we've got to build on that now. We've got to look at it as three unbeaten now and take the positives.

"We haven't been going great guns recently but I'm confident we'll get through this little period because we are a good team.

"We need to believe that a bit more and actually look at the way we play sometimes. If we keep growing and implementing that, I'm sure we'll upset a lot more teams.

"I know a few of Wigan's players and that's twice we've played them up there and played them off the park.

"Contrary to other reports from national newspapers, their players have come off saying we were the better team."

    Unfortunately I think the results over the past couple of seasons or so suggest teams do like visiting The Den.

        @Jim28: Not wrong there. You got to laugh when Swansea are complaining about refs, trying being us we get it week in out. Maybe because its on T.V tomorrow we might get a decent one to try and prove us wrong. Either or hard work will get its rewards at the end of the day. NOLUY WDC

    Being confident doesn't win games. Sticking that leather round thing in the net more times than the opposition wins games. Simples.
