Woolford: Millwall in confident mood ahead of Yeovil clash

BACK-to-back defeats have not dented Millwall's confidence ahead of Tuesday's crunch clash with Yeovil Town, Martyn Woolford has insisted.

The Lions top scorer's sixth goal of the season could not prevent a 3-1 defeat at Burnley last weekend, a result which followed a home loss to Reading in the previous game.

But heads have not dropped at The Den despite recent results and Woolford says that boss Ian Holloway has kept the dressing room in high spirits.



"Yeovil a big game," Woolford said. "We went to Burnley hoping for three points, but we've got a chance now to put that result behind us and against a team around us in the league.

"It's a good game to have coming up and we're looking forward to it. We're confident that we can get something from the game.

"The dressing room is staying positive. We went through the video footage of what went wrong against Burnley and we've got to learn from our mistakes.



"We're tactically ready for Yeovil and we're in a good frame of mind too."

He added: "It's a quick turnaround after Saturday.

"We worked hard on Monday, putting in plenty of time in the video room and on the field, and we'll be making sure the same enthusiasm carries into our performance."

Woolford put Millwall ahead in the 27th minute at Turf Moor but that lead lasted just two minutes, and Burnley were 2-1 in front before half time.

"For the majority of the first half, I thought we were doing really well," Woolford said

"The timing of the goals conceded killed us a little bit, especially letting one in just after we had scored and then right on half time.

"The manager has stressed to us that when we do score, or after we concede, that we stick to the things we are doing and concentrate on keeping the right shape and things like that.

"He's highlighted a few things that we took our eye off of after going in front."

    Blah, blah, blah. Personally, I'll only be convinced of the teams' confidence if they come back with 3 points!

    HOW THE PLAYERS CAN BE CONFIDENT WHEN THEY ARE LOSING MATCHES , BEATS ME. YOU WIN YOU BECOME CONFIDENT! GET FITTER IS WHAT I WISH TO HEAR, YEOVIL SHOULD BE EASIER, BUT NOT EASY. I AM NOT GOING TO PREDICT A SCORE OR WIN. I DO WANT TO SEE A GOOD WIN FOR MILLEALL. "NO ONE LIKES US, WE DONT CARE" STORMIN' NORMAN ........LIVING IN HOPE THAT THEY ARE FITTER.

      @bermlion: Storm Portugal seems a long time ago now and have you noticed any difference, only that more of them seem to be dropping out with injuries weekly, so does not seem to have had the desired affect, your right confidence comes winning games not losing on a regular basis.

    Words are easy deeds are a different matter, what we need is a real oul fashion Millwall performace tonight, because if we lose this one then we really are in the S*** and I think we used all our luck up at the end of last season.

    As we are already in the s*** i'm not expecting anything from this game as i reckon this is a harder game than burnley. The result bares a huge psychological impact on our season, we win then that should push us along nicely but if we lose then there's little hope of coming back from it. I don't think a draw is any good to us as we're in desperate need for 3 points.
    I live in hope.
    C O Y Ls, get that monkey off your backs.
    If you are the money grabbing sods that some of us think you are then surely you don't want a pay cut at the end of the season.
    Bring home the bacon boy's.

    A proper Millwall team performance needed tonight.
    No place for any shrinking violets.

      @grassgrower: I reckon he'll play Shittu with Robinson. Despite the rhetoric, and my own feelings, I don't think he's going to play Upson.

    I reckon Yeovil will be chomping at the bit tonight.
    The most I see us getting from this game is a point. If Yeovil score first, then they'll probably go on to score another 2.
    Conditions will no doubt play a major role.
    For those of you going later, I'd pack your willies and dingey!!
    GOODLUCK
