PHONES and radios have been banned from the Millwall dugout for Saturday's relegation-decider against Bournemouth.
Captain Alan Dunne has revealed that the Lions will not be receiving score updates from the other games in the division on the final day of the season.
Millwall's place in the second tier will be secured if Birmingham, who take on in-form Bolton, fail to win, or Doncaster lose to title-holders Leicester.
But the Lions can seal their own fate by beating the Cherries and Dunne insists the players do not want to be distracted by their rivals' fortunes.
The defender, 31, has admitted that Millwall were pre-occupied by scores elsewhere on the final day of last season, when they lost 1-0 to Derby.
Other results saved them 12 months ago, but Dunne said: "I don't want to take that risk again – I want to be completely focused on Bournemouth.
"We don't want to know anything – we will be focusing for 95 minutes on the game in front of us and do our best to get the three points.
"We can find out the other scores after the game.
"Against Derby, I spent the second half worrying about what the scores were and we ended up losing, which could have cost us.
"I don't think the manager will want anyone to know the other scores either.
"We might be able to find out from the crowd's reaction but we have to be focused completely on the job in hand.
"The manager won't want anyone on the bench to have any information that could get to the players because it can distract them.
"There could be a stage in the game when things aren't looking good for us and if we find out about that, a few heads could drop so we have to believe in what we're going to do ourselves.
"Last season, we were more worried about how the teams around us were doing than the game itself. If we do that again, we could lose focus like we did at Derby – and we lost that game.
"If everyone sticks to our gameplan and focuses on what we have got to do, the result will take care of itself and everything else will fall into place.
"The lads have got to be focused on doing their jobs and not let anything else take over because that can have an adverse effect.
"It will be some day for the club if all goes well, but there's a lot of work to do and there will be a few twists and turns.
"We have to make sure that we do our bit by winning the game outright so that there is nothing else to worry about."
Manager Ian Holloway will "educate" himself on the possible permutations before the game but says the formula for his side in simple.
He said: "We've got to go from the first whistle to the last, and try to win and try to score.
"Even if we've scored one goal I will try and score two because that's what everybody else down there will be doing.
"The only thing we can control is finishing above Doncaster and Birmingham and everything else is out of our hands.
"I won't be tuning in to any of the other scores. What Dunney is saying is absolutely right – we have to keep the players focused and block out all distractions."
