Millwall's Beevers: We'll have clearer picture after ten games

MILLWALL defender Mark Beevers is hoping his side can continue their good recent form against Southend on Saturday.

The Lions are three games unbeaten having won their last two on the road, but are still looking for a first league win at The Den this season.

Beevers, 25, scored his first goal of the campaign at Port Vale on Tuesday after he had made a challenge and won the ball on the edge of his own area.

Millwall then broke to force the corner from which he put his side ahead when he headed in Shaun Williams' cross, with his boss Neil Harris feeling the tackle was the key to the goal.

“I didn't realise that until the manager said it in the dressing room.” Beevers said.

“I disagree – I think the best thing about the goal was that I put the ball in the net.

“It’s nice to get off the mark. Shaun told me about it as soon as I got into the dressing room.

“It was a great ball in by Shauny and I just managed to get in front of the defender and nod the ball home.

“I hit the target from the chance so I'm thrilled to get off the mark but the most important part was the three points and a vital clean sheet.

“It's always nice to score, ask any of the players, it’s one of the best things of the game.

“As a defender, though, it’s nice to get a clean sheet. It isn't just the back four and the keeper but it’s all of the team. We had a great game against Port Vale and we thoroughly deserved the three points.”

The last time Millwall went four games without defeat was in October 2014 but Beevers, 25, is refusing to get carried away with the recent good run of form.

“We’ve stopped the rot of losing games at home so hopefully at the weekend we can get a positive result,” he said

“It’s too early to look at the league table. There has only been seven games played. Once ten games have gone, you can start looking at it and it tells a better story.

“We’re 12th now. I looked at the table before the game and if we won we would be one point outside the play-offs, and now we are, that’s how tight the division is.

“We’ve given ourselves a good base to work from and hopefully we can take it into Saturday.”

      @dave666:

      Agreed mate. As long as the mouthy t.w.a.t.s who knock the players confidence after 3mins stay at home. It's a real issue at the den and we need to turn that around in the stands to help the lads on the pitch....not to say we can't give the away lads absolute hell though coyl....

      @dave666: nad is a snapshot of how up and down us battered fans are feeling. 10 days ago it was all doom and gloom, with sack nh, get rid of the board, were going down etc etc. now its get behind the lads . roar em on, we'll win 5-0. I'm one of the die hards , always go, thick and thin. millwall t and t. all I'm hoping is we get a win today, fed up with our home form, 3 seasons of dross. personally the clash tune london calling played before the teams walk out could be changed to should i stay or should i go !! but ever the optimist lets just win 1-0 and turn our home form round.

    We used to be renowned for being a set of fans with the best banter in the country but sadly I've gotta say that these days we come across as a bunch of whiney little bitchboy who seem to be desperate to scream when things ain't goin right....it's a f u c k i n embarrassment to be honest...come on let's get back to the old days down at the den where we justhink used to reserve our hatred for anyone sitting in the away end rather than our own boys.

      @Hurlocksgonnagetya:
      The days when clubs used to fear coming here....bring back those days. We have become a laughing stock at the numbers to away games....but even with small numbers we make ourselves heard...let's turn the tables again and make our banter to all, the sound that promotes fear into the hearts of all that visit and tremble at the sound of our away chants....I live for those f.e.c.k.i.n days again.

    If we could create the support we get at away games at home we would be the most feared ground in the world. Coyl

    3 seasons of s*** at home is a good reason to moan. Do not blame the customer - the performances have been dreadful. Hope this starts to change this weekend as the first half performance away on Tuesday was impressive. But the home record is abysmal and remember the first league game at the new Den against Southend and our performance with bomber in charge the season before last so will not be going.

    We haven't sold many tickets as of yet - so it looks like just the proper supporters only will be going.
    Some so -called millwall fans find any excuse not to attend. 2 away wins and a young team - you would think supporters would be eager to see the development. The home stuff has been poor but it seems Harris has recognised our weaknesses - why not go

    It's going take a lot more convincing to get fans back at the den since the games we lost and to be honest I'm not positive about today as I feel we maybe tired and flat if we keep the winning team that's just played two away games, hope I'm wrong. COYL

      @Jim28: I think we are beginning to see the start of a settled team Jim. It seems to me it has always been that the teams that get results just tinker with personnel to allow for injuries, rest (Carlos?) and small tactical changes, one on one man marking perhaps, 433 from 442. I also think the performances of Archer have been exceptional and that has added to the confidence across the back four and on to the whole team, so instead of going down one nil, with the inevitable heads dropping, along with the here we go again feeling we have not had to fight back. The save of the header at the end of the first half against Vale is exactly what I mean, should have gone in 0-6 instead we would have been going in 1-0. Neil's half time team talk without that save goes from very easy 'no changes, keep what you are doing we will score' and everybody believing, to 'heads up boy's, we can get back into this game, the world is not against us'.
