THE Millwall board will continue to invest in the pitches at The Den and training ground to help Ian Holloway implement a passing style of football at the club.
Holloway believes that the standard of the Lions' playing surfaces – at the stadium and their Bromley base – need to be improved in the future.
In 2012, the pitch at The Den was re-laid at the cost of £250,000 but chief executive Andy Ambler has confirmed that further improvements are being planned.
Speaking ahead of Saturday's game at QPR, Holloway said: "I'm really looking forward to us going over to Loftus Road, and the best thing about going there is the surface.
"The pitch is really firm and there won't be any bobbles – it will be fantastic.
"We are going to have to invest in the pitches at the training ground and at The Den. There is nothing wrong with it or who's doing it, but it needs a bit of investment.
"We have invested in it heavily and I want to keep doing that because how we have played away from home recently has been helped by a good surface.
"I want to get us playing a passing game. I can't play any other way, so the pitch is vital.
"It's not a problem at the moment – in the first half against Doncaster we out-passed and out-manouvered them – it's just where I want to be in the future."
Ambler added: "We have invested heavily in the pitch and the improvement we have made is clear. You only have to compare our pitch with Charlton's pitch to witness that.
"That said, we know that we need the best pitch we can possibly get for Ollie's style of play, so part of the board's commitment to the manager is to improve the pitch.
"The board has approved a continuous programme to improve the surface at The Den. At the training ground, two of the pitches are already being made ready for next season."
