Beevers: Millwall will treat Luton tie like "any other game"

MARK Beevers has warned Millwall could become the latest victims of Luton Town's giant-killing FA Cup run if they underestimate the non-league side.

The Hatters have already dumped Wolves and Norwich City out of the competition this season and will be plotting another upset when the Lions visit Kenilworth Road in the fifth round on Saturday.

A trip to Bedforshire was hardly the plumb draw Millwall had been hoping for in the wake of their 2-1 win over Aston Villa in the last round, but Beevers says the Lions must not take Luton lightly.



"If you'd asked me before the draw who I wanted, I would have said Manchester United away," he admitted. "But we've got to go into this game believing we can win it.

"People will say they are a non-league side but we cannot expect to walk over them because that is when things backfire. We've got to prepare as usual like we do for any other game.

"The last time I played in a game like this was for Sheffield Wednesday against Southport in the first round live on TV. It's not nice.

"We're used to playing in nice stadiums but we have to go there and put a performance in."

    The whole squad including the support staff have to travel with a positive attitude and dont think for a minuete that this is a fore gone conclusion. Its going to be a tough game and im sure its one that luton are going to relish. Dont make the mistake that so many other clubs have made in the past by thinking that this is a cert, because it most definatly is not...

    COYL!!!!!!
