DEFENDER Alan Dunne is hoping home advantage will give Millwall the upper hand in their FA Cup quarter-final against Blackburn Rovers next month.
The long-serving right-back, a lone survivor from the Lions squad that lost to Manchester United in the 2004 final, wants a sell-out crowd at The Den for the visit of Michael Appleton's side.
But Dunne, who made his first appearance since October in the 3-0 win over Luton Town in the fifth round, says Millwall cannot afford to get ahead of themselves with a trip to Wembley at stake.
He told NewsAtDen: "Blackburn beat Arsenal on Saturday so it is going to be really tough, but there are no easy draws at this stage. A home tie is great, that's what we wanted first and foremost.
"It gives us a great chance. They are an experienced side having just come down from the Premier League, so it's going to be one of our toughest games of the season.
"We need a full house at The Den – every single seat needs to be taken. The place will be rocking and everyone will be at it – when then ground is like that, it's a hard place to come and play.
"We have been fortunate with the draws so far – I wouldn't say they have been easy – and it was like that in 2004. But we have got to take things one game at a time.
"We cannot start thinking about Wembley yet. It is a great feeling to go all the way so the incentive is massive for both clubs. We have to keep our heads down and work hard."
Dunne will be desperate to hold onto his place in the side between now and when Blackburn come to town after playing his first 90 minutes for Millwall in three-and-a-half months at Kenilworth Road.
The 30-year-old dropped out of Kenny Jackett's starting line-up after he was suspended for the 4-1 win at Nottingham Forest in October, with Tottenham loanee Adam Smith replacing him.
But Dunne, who made his 300th career appearance for the Lions against the Hatters, is determined to finish his career in SE16 no matter what.
"I was delighted to get a game under my belt," he said. "I lost my place when I got suspended and I haven't been playing for a while, which has been frustrating.
"Adam is an exceptional player and has a big future ahead of him – he offers a lot going forward as well. It was nice that the manager changed things up and we kept a clean sheet.
"I'm delighted and I hope I can make many more appearances here – that's my goal. To stay at one club for my entire career would be a big achievement. But I don't know what's around the corner.
"I'm just going to work hard and keep trying to impress. But 300 is a great landmark and I couldn't think of a better club to reach it at than this one."
Jackett revealed Dunne's experience had been a crucial factor in his decision to drop Smith for the Luton tie. He said: "I felt that we needed our back-four to be as big and as experienced as possible.
"Defensive headers and getting to the first ball were really important things on Saturday. That was in my thinking. Peterborough at home on Tuesday may be slightly different.
"But I knew coming here Alan's experience and physical experience would help our defence, which was under a lot of pressure."
