Millwall boss: It is about time my luck at Burnley changed

IAN Holloway insists he "does not believe in hoodoos" despite failing to claim a win in his last 11 visits to Turf Moor.

Holloway's Lions face a daunting trip to the home of Sean Dyche's promotion-chasers, who are unbeaten on their own patch in the Championship so far this season.

The Millwall boss has a miserable managerial record in Lancashire, losing eight and drawing three matches since his last win.

However, the Lions are unbeaten in three at Burnley.

But Holloway said ahead of Saturday's game: "None of that matters.

"Even with my previous record there, where I haven't won in a while, I don't think that is relevant. I'm going there with Millwall now and they better watch out, that's how I feel.

"I've been very unlucky there in the past and I feel it's about time that changed.

"Burnley are a good side and have got a great belief structure going at the moment, whereas ours gets damaged whenever we let a goal in.

"I'd say Burnley are over-achieving this season in terms of their budget, but they've got a spirit and a manager who's been there a while, and they know what they're doing.

"They have got two top strikers as well. They will go long to Sam Vokes and I'm confident we can deal with that, but we'll have to watch what Danny Ings is doing.

"I've got a plan for him which we've been working on this week."

    We fear no foe Ollie.
    Let's go for them from the off.
    I'd rather go down all guns blazing. Let's see how good they are when we take a shock 2 nil lead.
    COYL.

    Just wondering if Millwall are going to appeal the red card for Lowry in light of the FA's 'another look' at Carroll's.

    Its a marathon and not a sprint Ollie, just get the lads to put in a battling performance and so long as we see improvement we are right behind you and the team.

    I think burnley are the ones that should worry about hoodoos. We always do well up there. So com Ollie cheer up we coming home with the bacon. In your case the chickens.

    I appreciate everyone optimism but anything other than a loss has got to be deemed as a result for us.

        @I'm A Pessimistic C**t:
        Cue the applause. You signed up earlier than I thought.
        I was only joking about your next post as I was hoping for a win.
        I am optimistic by nature but still doesn't stop me from being realistic. As you say the last couple of years have been very frustrating.
        If we do win tomorrow I think you should keep the name personally or at least why our winning run lasts. COYL
