CLUB captain Paul Robinson insists Millwall fans should be not worried about Steve Lomas' West Ham history.
Lomas, who will officially meet the media at a press conference on Monday morning, made 187 appearances for the Hammers during his playing days – but has crossed the London divide to take up the hotseat at The Den.
Robinson said: "I don't think we can judge him on what's gone on in the past – only on what he does at Millwall. Football is about winning and if Steve does that here, he'll be a success.
"There's no getting away from his past but he hasn't hidden from it – he's been honest about it and is obviously very keen to come to a club like Millwall. I think everyone's got to get behind him and give him the best possible chance."
And Robinson believes Lomas is a smart choice to replace Kenny Jackett. He said: "Steve's done very well in Scotland. He took over at St Johnstone in a situation not too dissimilar to ours after Derek McInnes moved on.
"It is a bit like that with Kenny, who took the club a long way. Hopefully everything is set up for Steve to come down, make an impact and take the club forward."
