IAN Holloway wants to control the size of his squad next season.
Last year, Millwall used a total of 42 players, the joint-most in the Championship along with Blackpool.
Promoted Burnley used the fewest with 25 – 17 less than the Lions – so Holloway says he is looking for squad continuity ahead of the new campaign.
"I don't want to add too many to the squad," he said.
"Otherwise you get spoilt for choice, you get a backlog of players and it doesn't really help others break into the squad.
"I want to use a lot less players than we did last year, to be more committed to the players we have and have a bit more competition."
Holloway added: "I want us to be more of a nailed-down squad to work on we do and how we do it so they understand their jobs.
"There needs to be a bit more continuity for them rather than chopping and changing all the time.
"If you look at the last few games, we didn't change that many players. I picked a team and didn't have to change too much."
With Stefan Maierhofer and Simeon Jackson leaving the club and Steve Morison returning to parent club Leeds, Holloway admits he needs to bolster his attacking options.
He explained: "I would like a few options for different teams we are playing against and I'm looking at the height in the forward area now.
"I haven’t brought in Lee Gregory to deal with the ball back to front; he's going to float off and around someone like that.
"I've lost Morison who's gone back to Leeds – who knows what’s happening with them – so I have to look at different options to get the balance right.
"I feel that with how we finished last year, I have a couple of other things I'm looking for.
"Then I'll be more than happy to start and then leave it to the loan market if I need anything else.
"I’m very pleased with how things are going, and hopefully we will be all settled and ready to go.
"The club is looking good and the pitches are already ready to train on when the boys are back next Thursday.
"The tests are ready to do on Thursday and Friday and then they are off Saturday before we fly to Portugal on Sunday.
"Hopefully I will have the nucleus of the squad prepared."
