Woolford: Millwall happy with underdog tag against Norwich

MARTYN Woolford is glad that the odds are stacked against Millwall at Norwich.

The bookies have a Lions victory at Carrow Road down as a 5-1 long shot.

But Woolford is confident Millwall can spring a surprise at Carrow Road – because they tend to perform best when the chips are down.

"The onus is on Norwich to come and turn us over," Woolford said. "Sometimes teams just expect that to happen and that's when we can prove that we are a good side.

"If teams think they can take their foot off the gas against us, then that's when we've come into our own. We've shown earlier in the season that we can compete with the best.

"We seem to do well against the teams that are expecting to turn us over. We do well when we're the underdog.

"We have got two tough games in a short space of time, so we'll be looking to do that again. We need to make sure we are positive going into this period."

    "We've shown that we can compete with the best", it's a pity they can't compete with the worst then we wouldn't be in the s--t we are in. Cut the stupid comments Woolford and get practicing where the goal is and how to get the round thing somewhere near it.

      @Sealion: exactly Sealion can't agree more, also when the team realise it's not all about passing the ball to each other you have to get stuck in and bully teams and win the mental strength over you opponent. I don't see this in this team the only player who has that ingredient is jimmy graft graft graft! Press press press! At least look like you are up for it for 90 minutes, I watch Sunday football and although some of it is poor ! They put 100% and they don't get a tanner for it,

        @lionrampant: That's the thing we always seem to raise our game for the top clubs but I am afraid to say that a hard earned draw away is no substitute for 3 points lost at home to most of the fellow strugglers that come down to the Den.

    Norwich's home form isn't great, so there's always hope.
