FORMER Millwall centre-back Sean Dyche says his Burnley players must overcome an "uncomfortable" atmosphere if they are to get a result at The Den on Saturday.
Dyche, who made 69 appearances for the Lions between 1999 and 2002, knows exactly what kind of atmosphere will await the Clarets when they arrive in South London.
And while 41-year-old has been impressed with Millwall's form on the pitch this season, he believes keeping the crowd subdued off it could be half of the battle won already.
"Millwall have been a real handful for people and a tough nut to crack," Dyche said. "They've pulled out some big results away from home in particular.
"I like Kenny and his staff and the feel of the club. They make The Den a tough place to go to. Part of it is the mentality – people find that uncomfortable but we have to see through that.
"It can be intimidating at times and it's important you play your part in quietening that down by putting in a good performance and scoring goals. It's another challenging game.
"We like what the players are doing at the moment so we go down there in confident mood."
