PAUL Robinson believes playing three of the Championship's top teams after the international break will "focus the minds" of Millwall's players.
The Lions host second-placed QPR, travel to recently-relegated Reading and face league-leaders Burnley in the space of a fortnight when their season resumes on Saturday.
Millwall go into their next batch of fixtures off the back of two heavy league defeats but Robinson says tackling some of the division's promotion contenders is an ideal challenge.
"What these games will do is focus the minds," he said. "We love knocking the bigger teams down, so hopefully that challenge, that intensity and a very feisty atmosphere at The Den against QPR will bring the best out of us.
"The performance we produced against Leeds is what we need to be producing consistently. We played against QPR a few years ago when they were top of the league and we got a result escitalopram generic health that night, and we need to make The Den as intimidating for away teams as it was back then.
"Our last two results dictate that, coming back to The Den, it is doubly important we pick up three points."
Robinson admitted the Lions have been working on the defensive side of their game during the break, having conceded nine goals in their last two outings.
"We've got to take responsibility for ourselves because we haven't defended well enough as a team in enough games this season," he said.
"We need to work harder than that and improve our mentality as a team – get back to the Millwall way, being hard to play against and break down.
"We've brought in some more attacking players and maybe with the way we are playing it has opened us up a bit. We'll be working on getting the right formula before the QPR game."
