LIAM Trotter thinks Millwall's performances have improved a lot since the start of the season but admits that is scant consolation after a six-game winless run.
The Lions have not taken three points in the Championship since beating Leeds United 2-0 at The Den on September 28.
After the October international break, Steve Lomas' side faced QPR, Burnley, Reading and Bolton, claiming three back-to-back draws before losing 3-1 at the Reebok Stadium.
"As much as those three draws were decent results because we were playing good teams at the top-end of the league, we still needed at least one win out of those three," Trotter said.
"It does not make for good reading when you don't win one out of four games, no matter who it is against, so we need to keep improving.
"Against Bolton, I thought we dominated the game, we had a lot more of the ball and were probing a lot, but we let ourselves down by conceding two really bad goals.
"In the past four games we have improved a lot in terms of our general play and the performances we've put in but we need to start turning draws into wins."
Barnsley's visit to The Den on Saturday is being billed as a must-win game and Trotter says Millwall are due a victory against the Tykes, who did the double over the Lions last year.
"It's an important game," he said. "There's a little bit more emphasis on it because of where both teams are in the table, and we want to increase the points gap between us and them.
"We need to right a few wrongs from last season and get a bit of payback, but getting three points is the most important thing and if we put in another good performance hopefully we will get our rewards."
