DAVID Forde is confident Millwall can surge up the Championship table despite failing to turn promising performances into results.
The Lions head into the two-week international break having taken just one point from their last three matches, conceding eight goals in the process.
Millwall fought back from 2-0 down to restore parity against Brentford last Saturday but Danny Shittu deflected Andre Gray's cross into his own net to hand the visitors victory.
That defeat came days after Ian Holloway's side wiped out a two-goal deficit with ten men to draw with Blackburn Rovers.
So Forde says the Lions' fighting qualities are a source of encouragement and that it is only a matter of time before they start picking up the points to go with their displays.
But he admits that the season has been one of false dawns so far, with Millwall now 18th in the league.
The goalkeeper said: "It's been frustrating because we've been playing very well and played some good football.
"This has been the best style of play since I've been at the club, but we haven't been getting results.
"We flatter to deceive at the moment – we're looking like a very good side but we can't seem to win games and close it out. That's the most frustrating thing.
"But once things click I think we can go on a very good run again."
Assessing the Brentford defeat, Forde said: "We seem to go a couple of goals behind before we really get going.
"The first half was very flat and that was partly down to the Blackburn game – we put a big effort in to come back and get a result there and we weren't fully at it in the first half.
"It was the same again, we went 2-0 behind but showed montauk-monster.com/pharmacy/nexium tremendous character and you've got to hand it to the lads for the way we came back.
"It's fantastic to see because we know we're always in a game.
"We know that we can play anyone and, no matter what the score is, score goals ourselves. It's just keeping them out at the other end.
"I feel that something is happening and that we will get there. Once we do get this sorted out and rectified, we'll be a very competitive side in this division."
There was little Shittu could do as he bundled Gray's cross over the line.
"He's pulled it across the box and as Dan's gone to clear it their player kicked his leg and it went in," Forde added. "That's the way it's going for us at the minute.
"At 2-2 it could have gone either way because Matthew Briggs has put in a great cross and Lee Gregory's great header has come back off the post – that was a chance for 3-2.
"It would've been a different game then and if you look at it overall, we probably had more clear-cut chances than Brentford but they were more clinical.
"The chances they had, they scored."
Forde was recently nominated for a Championship award after Millwall kept three clean sheets out of four games in October.
But they've been conceding at an alarming rate since the turn of the month.
Asked what he put that down to, the Ireland international said: "There have been a lot of changes to the back four and I don't think that particularly helps.
"But the lads that have come in have done well in previous games and kept clean sheets, so it's hard to put your finger on at the moment."
