IAN Holloway is organising a winter training camp in Portugal for his squad.
NewsAtDen understands Millwall's players will jet off on Sunday evening, the day after their Championship clash against Ipswich, for five days of warm-weather training.
Holloway knows that he needs to improve fitness levels to successfully implement his high-tempo style and has some "serious work" planned for his troops over the coming weeks.
The Lions' trip to Yeovil Town on January 25 has been postponed because of the Glovers' involvement in the FA Cup, so Holloway has a free week to focus on physical training.
Millwall played an inter-squad friendly on Tuesday, which the first team won 2-0, and gave Holloway the chance to assess every player at his disposal.
He said: "It was a fantastic exercise because I have now seen everybody play and now I can start introducing what I want.
"I started doing that with the team from last Saturday – Chaplow was out of it, so I put Trotter in instead. I worked them hard and they trained at a very high tempo.
"It was a very good introduction to some of the players for me. Some of the young lads were bright, sharp, fit and strong, and unfortunately some of the ones who haven't been playing regularly looked a bit rusty.
"I've got ten days after the Ipswich game to get some really serious work into them. It will be structured, physical and I'll be putting my mark on things over the next couple of weeks.
"They're getting a big slice of me and that's exactly what I want. The lads came in bright and breezy on Monday and I'll be giving them new challenges and new things to think about.
"I want them to go home every day knowing that they are growing as professionals. I want them to work together to make that wonderful badge they play for strong."
