Lee Martin: The standards at Millwall are going "up and up"

LEE Martin says the standard of training at Millwall is increasing all the time as the side bid to end September on a high with a result at Wigan tonight.

Martin was back in the team in the 3-1 win over Rochdale on Saturday as an 80th-minute replacement for Shane Ferguson.

The Lions started the month with a 1-0 win over Peterborough in the Football League Trophy and a win tonight would see them jump above Wigan in the Sky Bet League One table and edge closer to a top-six spot.

And Martin now believes that the mix of younger and more experienced players is raising the standards of performance at the training base on Calmont Road.

“I said it the other day on Friday after training, the standard of training is going up and up and up,” Martin said. “I knew coming into Saturday, I thought we’re going to win here and win by quite a bit.

“I don’t think the youngsters have a fear factor, they just go out and play. You see it with Aiden (O’Brien), with Fred (Onyedinma) and with Shane (Ferguson), especially. With the senior pros as well there’s a good atmosphere and you can see it in training now.

“The confidence is certainly up there so I think we’re going in the right direction.

“If you see something in training then nine times out of 10 it goes onto the pitch on Saturday. Certainly Friday’s training session was up there with one of the best we’ve had. Everything’s coming together now.

“If we’d gone into Saturday on the back of a good training session and lost we’d have wondered what went wrong. Whereas we’d had a good training session so we knew we were doing everything right prior to the game. And we’re bringing it onto the pitch now and putting it into practice.”

        @keamers:

        And Williams... by far our best player Saturday. Along with O'brien.

          @keamers: and I and quite a few others in the upper kircheber thought Webster was immense on Saturday.
          The only change I would make is rest Fred and try PCH or LM.
          Also agree Pavey needs a chance but not this game.

          Will be watching from the Den Exec Lounge this evening
