DANNY Shittu says Millwall are no longer anxious about playing at The Den.
The Lions, who welcome Championship leaders Burnley to SE16 this Saturday, are unbeaten in their last three matches on home soil.
Prior to back-to-back victories over Blackpool and Leeds and the draw against QPR, Millwall had lost ten out of 13 league games in front of their own fans.
But Shittu said: "It was difficult at the beginning of the season but we all look forward to playing at The Den now.
"It is great knowing that the fans are right behind us at home because they are our 12th man. They can really affect the away team too."
Manager Steve Lomas added: "There was probably a little bit of anxiety in our first couple of game at The Den but that was because we weren't taking our chances.
"Maybe there was a bit of a hangover from last year, I don't know. But wins and results have bred confidence."
Shittu hopes performances at home will continue to improve as Millwall adjust to a new way of playing under Lomas.
"It's not just a new style, we're adapting to a different type of player as well," he said. "Last year we had Darius Henderson and Chris Wood up front, tall target men who won a lot in the air, whereas now we have smaller guys like Scott McDonald and Martyn Waghorn.
"We have to play more passes and let our midfielders get more involved in the play. We're still adjusting to it but I think it's starting to come together now."
