MIDFIELDER Guy Moussi has called for Millwall to be "brave on the ball" when they face high-flying Leicester City this weekend.
Moussi is expected to make his second start for the Lions at the King Power Stadium, having played 90 minutes on his debut in the 1-0 victory over Barnsley.
And the Nottingham Forest loanee will have a big role to play in keeping the free-scoring Foxes at bay – as he believes the game could be won and lost in the middle of the park.
"Leicester have a lot of pace in their side, especially in the wide areas," he said. "If we don't keep the ball and try to pass it too quickly, they can hurt us with their pace.
"We need to be strong defensively, play possession football and be brave with the ball.
"Our movement has got to be good because you need to give your teammate an option, someone to pass to, all of the time. That will be the key."
Moussi, who is on loan at The Den until January, hopes to bring a more patient approach to Millwall's midfield over the coming weeks.
"In the Championship you have to try to keep the ball better than the other team," he said. "Sometimes teams think they can score a goal in four or five passes but you need to take your time.
"It is like a boxing match. You need to wait for the right opportunity to score. When you keep the ball, the other team try to pressure you and that's when you can find little gaps in between the lines.
"Football is not an exact science but that's my view, and if I can help Millwall play like that it would be nice."
