LIAM Trotter believes producing consistent performances is the next target for Millwall after back-to-back draws against Reading and QPR.
Trotter says the Lions must show more belief on the ball – and trust their passing – from the start of matches, rather than working their way through the gears.
Steve Lomas' side grew in belief against the Royals last weekend before grabbing a late draw, but Trotter insists the team is capable of playing high-tempo football for 90 minutes.
"We definitely grew into the game," he said. "In the first 20 minutes of any game, most teams, barring the likes QPR who straight away set their stall out to pass it, start a little bit more direct because you want to keep things tight.
"We need to have belief on the ball as early as possible, rather than growing into games. We realised as the game went on that we could really play, but we need to do that from the first minute because we are good enough to do it.
"You need resilience but I thought we played really well in terms of the quality of our football. We probably passed the ball better out of both teams, which if you had said before the game a few people wouldn't have believed you.
"That shows that we have a lot of quality in this team, it's just about bringing that out."
Asked whether he feels things are finally coming together under Lomas, Trotter added: "To a certain extent, but it is a long season; things always come together, fall apart and you've got to build again.
"We thought it was all coming together when we won three games on the bounce and then we conceded nine goals in a week, so it's important to keep a level head and do the right things as consistently as you can.
"If you do that, you will come away with more points."
