ALAN Dunne has called on his Millwall teammates to stand up and be counted when they face Crystal Palace in Tuesday's crunch clash at The Den.
The Lions must capitalise on having a game in hand over the teams around them at the foot of the Championship table if they are to avoid a nail-biting final day of the season.
Three points would confirm another year in the second tier for Kenny Jackett's troops, but anything other than a win would leave them needing a result against Derby County on Saturday.
Dunne says the visit of the Eagles would be the perfect stage on which to banish fears of relegation – and he insists Millwall will not crumble under the weight of expectation.
He told NewsAtDen: "So many times in football we say 'this is the biggest game' – but it has come to the stage now where this really will be the biggest game of our season.
"It is more important than an FA Cup semi-final. The league is our bread and butter and it's what we get paid for. We all want to play in the Championship.
"We should have had it done by now but it hasn't worked out that way. Both teams need the points so it's a London derby with a huge amount at stake. It's going to be an incredible atmosphere.
"There's a little bit of naivety and inexperience within the team that's costing us sloppy goals but we have to learn fast from that. If we'd scored three or four more goals since Christmas we'd be safe.
"But it is still in our own hands. We have six points to play for and we're facing a Palace side who are not on form at the moment – neither are we – but I think we've been solid of late.
"Our defending against Nottingham Forest on Saturday was good – we were up against a very good strike force that has cost a lot of money. The only goal they could score was from a set piece.
"We will be fired up for it – the manager will make sure of that. The players know what's at stake. As a player, if you're not fired up for Tuesday night then you're in the wrong game.
"It is a game you should want to play in – a huge London derby knowing that a win would keep us in the division for another year. Every player has to be breaking their bollocks for the club.
"Nobody wants to play in League One. Nobody. I know I don't."
