Bolton are in a false league position, believes Millwall boss

STEVE Lomas insists Millwall will not take under-performing Bolton lightly.

Having drawn against QPR, Reading and Burnley since the last international break, the Lions travel north looking to crown recent good performances with a much-needed win.

Wanderers are below Millwall in the league table but are unbeaten in their last six games and Lomas is expecting a tough test at the Reebok Stadium on Saturday afternoon.



"I'm a big believer that if you put in the performances, results will look after themselves – you won't always win, but that is generally what happens," he said. "Our last three performances have been good but we're going to have to go again.

"Bolton are going to be tough. They have spent a lot of money and their wage bill is astronomical for this level. They've got good strikers in Jermaine Beckford and David Ngog, who have both played in the Premier League, the lad Chung-Yong Lee is a good player and Kevin McNaughton went up with Cardiff last year, so we know it's not going to be easy.

"They have got good players – there's no two ways about it – and they are probably in a false league position in terms of where they really should be with that group of players."

        @NICKOLA: I hope not! These "Good Performances" are all well and good but we need some points on the board now. Three great results but we need to be beating teams that are around us in the table. Unbeaten in six ...... agreed but they are 19th for a reason. We have to find their weak spot and exploit it. Personally, I won't be happy with anything other than 3pts this weekend. Get on it Lomas!

          @kempo_123: Bolton are improving and were unlucky to miss out on the play-offs last season. We really need some wins to start climbing the table, but another draw tomorrow wouldn't be a bad result.

    Trouble is if we lose this game will all go back to square one pressure on team and lomas and we will be a bag of nerves against barnsley. Seems we do so much better under little expectation shame we cant play a top 6 team every week.

      @Syd the Lion: Syd, Both Millwall and Forde in particular owe Beckford big time and lets hope him and them have an unhappy day tomorrow. COYL!!!!!

      @Syd the Lion: just looked him up.
      he has played 347 games for all the clubs hes played for,and scored a total of 165 goals,that tells me he deserves respect as a striker.

    I've got a feeling that this is going to be a hard fought game. I want Millwall to win and only win anything less and we could be back in or about the drop zone, we're only one defeat away from it, so only a win will do me..... Looking to the sky in trust and hope
