ALAN Dunne is hoping three successive away games will enable Millwall to build up some confidence before they next play at The Den in mid-September.
The Lions hit the road on Saturday for their trip to Sheffield Wednesday, before travelling to Nottingham Forest and Brighton the following week.
That may come as a relief to some of Millwall's players, given that they have won just 15 of their last 48 matches on home soil in the Championship.
But Dunne believes the Lions could find the remedy to their home form on their travels.
He said: "It's a chance for some of the boys to pick up some confidence away from The Den. Hopefully by the time we next play at home, we'll have picked up some points and there will be a good buzz.
"I don't know if there is a fear of playing at The Den, it is probably more of a confidence thing – a lack of confidence and inexperience, perhaps.
"The Den is a difficult place to play but it can change very quickly; a strong tackle or a good cross and the crowd are up. I'd rather we were playing at home if I'm being honest.
"It's fantastic when that’s happening but the players have got to be able to handle both sides of it. That's what we get paid for."
Wednesday did the league double over Millwall last season, so Dunne feels there is a score to settle at Hillsborough.
He said: "I felt we deserved more out of both games. We conceded a couple of sloppy goals early on in the away game, and the late goal killed us at home.
"Miguel Llera is the one we’ve got to keep quiet because he has a habit of scoring against us. They're a huge, physical side but I feel we've got more quality than them."
