STEVE Lomas is hoping Millwall can convert recent improved performances into their first win of the season against Derby County on Saturday.
The Lions are unbeaten in their last two league games after consecutive away draws at Sheffield Wednesday and Brighton, and Lomas is determined to keep the momentum going.
The visit of the Rams to The Den kicks off an important seven days for Millwall, who host Blackpool on Tuesday before taking on South London rivals Charlton at The Valley.
"We have two important home games coming up," Lomas said. "The away fans that have watched us recently have seen decent games and I'm sure they will agree the standard of football has been decent.
"The fans know their football and you can't kid them. The fans who travelled to support us in our last three away games will certainly say there are positive signs there, it's just about turning them into wins now.
"If we win on Saturday, it makes our point at Brighton look like a great point. Derby have some decent players, like all teams in the Championship, but we're at home and we want to get on the front foot."
Lomas has admitted he will consider utilising a 4-3-3 formation on Saturday, given that it worked so well against the Seagulls before the international break.
"It's something to think about," he said. "I used 4-3-3 in home matches at St Johnstone, and when done right it can be a very good formation that allows you to create chances.
"We'll have a look at Derby and make a decision. The good thing is the squad can change between a few different formations; we're quite flexible and we've got attacking options."
The standard of Millwall's football has been improving week by week, and Lomas believes his side have found the right balance between a passing game and being more direct.
He said: "Everyone has their own ideas about how the game should be played, but I believe football is supposed to be played on the deck. You have to get the ball down when you can.
"That is not to say a 60-yard pass, hit from back to front into a forward's chest isn't quality, because it is, so we need to get the right mix. I think there have been signs of that in the last four games."
