GOALKEEPER Maik Taylor has revealed that Millwall's players are so confident of staying up that they haven't even considered the prospect of going down.

The Leeds loanee has been involved in his fair share of survival battles during his 18-year-long career, but he insists the Lions do not strike him as a side heading for League One.

Kenny Jackett's squad travel to promotion-chasing Cardiff on Saturday knowing that a win would go a long way to securing Championship survival.

"I've been relegated from the Premier League twice with Birmingham," Taylor told the club's official website.

"Results can start to go against you and you wonder where your next win is going to come from, but I really don't sense that here.

"The lads are still full-on and the belief and confidence is there. Relegation has not even crossed anyone's mind – everyone's doing the right things and making the right noises.

"Cardiff are trying to stake their claim and get into the play-offs. It's going to be extremely difficult but sometimes that brings the best out of you.

"We'll go there as underdogs, but sometimes that takes the pressure off and you end up producing your best football."
