MILLWALL defender Alan Dunne believes bad luck has played a major role in the Lions' recent poor home form.
Kenny Jackett's side have failed to win in their last four matches on home soil, but Dunne is confident of emerging victorious from this evening's clash with Middlesbrough at The Den.
"I think we have been very unlucky at home," he told the club’s official website.
"We've missed some very big chances, but we have played well and there are positives to take from that and if we get the first goal tonight I am sure we will go on to win it.
"It's just that extra five per cent we need to put the ball in the back of the net, hold onto wins and get the three points. Lately, we have been really unlucky and individual mistakes here and there have cost us goals."
Dunne also conceded that Millwall's back four urgently needs to start scoring goals amidst the shuddering fact that not one defender has put the ball in the net this season.
"We have had a few ‘oohs’ and ‘aahs’ which is not good enough, but we are getting closer and hopefully one of us is due a goal soon," he said.
"My shot at West Ham wasn’t far off and I have hit a few close ones, but I don’t mind whoever scores as long as we win the game tomorrow."
