VICTORY over Cardiff has given Millwall's confidence a "shot in the arm" ahead of their trip to title-contenders Watford tomorrow.
Boss Ian Holloway says his players are brimming with belief after winning for the first time since August last weekend.
Beating the Bluebirds has reinforced a lot of the good work the Lions have already done this season, Holloway added.
"We are getting into good habits – the way we train, the way we do things and the way we know our structure," he said.
"Football is about confidence and believing you can do something.
"That is what these bigger clubs have got – all of their supporters have got an arrogance and a cockiness but we don't really have that.
"We are more used to not having expectations – we just want our team to go and work hard for us.
"But I want to change that – I want our fans and players to realise we are a good team and we can acheive things.
"That's where I started off at Blackpool – what I wanted to give them was a sense of pride about who they are and what can be achieved.
"Is that coming at Millwall? Results like last weekend will help but the hardest thing is being consistent with that.
"There is a lot of confidence in the group after beating Cardiff. The spirit was good anyway but the confidence in what we're doing is getting a shot in the arm.
"Look at what Derby did to Fulham the other night (scoring five goals) and look at what they couldn't do to us with a new back four.
"We drew with Wigan and then they've gone away and beaten Derby, so we've played some really good teams, including Wolves, and got some good results.
"Everbody has come in with that little bit extra in their stride. And that's massive, because what comes first – doing something or believing you can do something?
"I think that belief comes first – that is what I have learned during my career. When I didn't believe I could do something, I couldn't do it.
"So it is all about our attitude and mindset – some of these things will come with time, but certain things I have to change."
Millwall have not won a game at Vicarage Road since 2006 and were thrashed 4-0 by the Hornets on Boxing Day last season.
"Watford did us heavily last year and we've hardly ever won there, but so what?" Holloway added.
"Let's go there with a fresh momentum and be as good as we've been in the last few games.
"We haven't been getting the first goal enough. We look a really good team when we score the first goal and in every game we've had chances to do that.
"When we have got it, we've looked good and when we haven't we've wobbled, so we need to sort that out."
