Millwall's Forde back training as Harris prepares for Bromley


DAVID Forde is back training with Millwall as they prepare for their first pre-season friendly against Bromley tomorrow evening.

However, the Ireland international is unlikely to be involved as he is some way behind the rest of the squad in terms of fitness.

His future with the club has been in some doubt and he held talks with Fulham earlier in the summer.

But he joined the rest of the players and management as they returned to the training ground on Calmont Road this morning after a week in Portugal fine-tuning pre-season preparations.

The Lions played Fulham last Tuesday evening in a 60-minute game with both Neil Harris and Fulham boss Kit Symons naming a different side for each half.

Harris set his team up in the 4-4-2 formation that he is expected to use for the majority of the season as the sides drew 0-0.

And the Millwall boss outlined what he expects to see from his players at Bromley.

“I will be looking at the basics tomorrow evening,” he said. “We’ve done a lot of work on how we want to play with and without the ball.

“I will be looking for a high work rate, desire and a positive attitude from the players.

“We will be working more on the tactical side of things over the next few weeks.”

He also confirmed that he has yet to decide who will captain the Lions next season.

The game at Hayes Lane kicks off at 7.45pm.

    Really hope Forde stays with us for the new season. By all means, give Archer the chance to take the No.1 shirt off him but Forde staying with us will only be a good thing!
