Millwall boss eyes chance to pull away from Middlesbrough

STEVE Lomas views Millwall's match with Middlesbrough at The Den on Saturday as a chance to pull away from the Teessiders in the Championship table.

The Lions could move seven points clear of the relegation zone this weekend if they win and other results go their way.

Victory over Boro would have the added bonus of keeping Aitor Karanka's troops, currently sitting just one place below Millwall in the Championship table, at arm's length.



"Boro are around us in the table and we haven't picked up enough points against those sides – we've done better against the top teams," Lomas said.

"That is something we need to improve and it is a chance for us to put daylight between us and them.

"They have been a bit unfortunate recently, conceding goals late on in games and that has cost them points, but we know that, on their day, they are a quality side.



"We are at home and we have got bounce back. The performance at Blackburn was decent enough to get us something out of it, which was disappointing. It was points thrown away.

"The game is live on TV so we want to put on a good performance for our fans at the game and those watching at home."

      @DiggerWall: as soon as we get rid of this clueless clown the better, this is the worst millwall side I have seen in 40 years no b*******, they look like they have only just met & why the fk does fordey who has a force ten hurrican behind it decide to keep hoofing it up to their keeper with the wind taking it, no brains no clues not even league 2 standard , we're going down gents unless we act now to remove this ginger clown & half these so called players, they must blush when they collect their wages !

      @steveomfc5: Steveo, you need to watch because if you dont you will have somthing else on so no saving there, and if we win that will get your Christmas off to a good start and if we lose then Christmas can only get better after a s*** Saturday.

      Or better still come done the den and join me and loads of others (i hope) to see something who might be a tatical genius in the home dug out, if not I wish & your a good one.

    Can't see Lomas not playing Shittu at the expense of Robinson. Hope Bailey is fit enough as we have missed him. Been a rough ride this season, please let's have a win ffs.

      anyway, you will be correct, DANNY SHITTU is playing,
      I spoke to Steve Lomas, and told we will win 3 - 0, if plays
      the big lad.........................[ and he said okay, we'll go for it !! ]

      " No one likes us, we don't care"
      Stormin' Norman.......................

    This will be a tight game, but I believe a game we can actually win. Although we leak goals like a sieve leakes water we are winning the odd game Borro are sliding down the table.

    A lot of "ifs" there. Not much confidence and again we "could" move seven points clear "IF" we win.

    Hot air, let's see it translated on the pitch into reality and not just hopes and wishes. Give us a Happy Christmas you Lions!

      @Peckhamlad: I very much hope we get a result Peckham but SL says the same thing week in week out. Isn't it about time he proved his worth as Millwall manager by showing it on the pitch? Blah, blah, blah every week! Same comments before and after! "Passion, intensity, high tempo, individual errors!" Not again Lomas! Show it don't talk s*** about it!
