PAUL Robinson has played down the significance of Millwall's FA Cup exit.

The Lions were dumped out of the fifth round at the hands of Bolton on Saturday, but skipper Robinson insists the Lions had always remained focused on the Championship.

“We play Middlesbrough on Tuesday and it's vital we pick up points to keep us in this division," he said.

“We gave a really good account of ourselves in the first half but the ball didn’t quite run for us.

“We wanted to get through but the FA Cup was always a bonus. Now we’re out the focus is entirely on staying up."
