AIDEN O'Brien believes the atmosphere generated by Millwall fans can spur the players on in their battle for Championship survival.

The young Irish striker says Lions supporters played a massive part in their 2-1 home win over south London rivals Charlton on Good Friday.

"The fans today and in the past couple of weeks against Brentford and Brighton have been incredible," O'Brien said.

"I can't explain how good they've been, how much they have helped us and the effect they've had on us.

"There's nothing like it with the fans all behind us, all chanting our names and backing us up, that's the best thing ever, that's what keeps Millwall going.

"Beating Charlton was one of those games that we will never forget, it was great."

O'Brien insists Millwall can still maintain their second-tier status and says the performance against the Addicks reflects the determined mood amongst the squad.

"We've got to keep playing how we're playing and we've got to stay together and stay focused," he said, speaking before Rotherham beat Brighton on Easter Monday.

"If we do that, I'm saying we're staying up.

"We've just got to concentrate on ourselves, it's never too late until the season's over, there are always points to be won.

"The more goals we score and the fewer goals we concede, we will start to win games and that's what we need, results."

    If the players show they want to play for us then we will never do a captain noakes on you. Coyl

    As much as I love the enthusiasm and passion, even if we win every game, the likes of Rotherham and Fulham need to lose. Just a too greater ask of chopper and the boys
