ED Upson believes Millwall's season could catch fire at any moment.

The midfielder is adamant that a run of good results is right around the corner, despite the Lions winning just one of their last 13 games.

Upson returned to the side as Millwall drew 0-0 with Charlton last weekend, a result which left them 18th in the Championship table.

"It was a good performance," said the former Yeovil man. "We were pushing for the win but it's important to keep a clean sheet and not to lose the game.

"Everyone was fairly happy with a point in the dressing room. I really enjoyed the game and felt I played quite well.

"I could have done more as always but I was happy with it in the end.

"I could have scored that header in the first half but I was back-peddling and I don't have the biggest neck muscles!

"We are close to the bottom three but we're also very close to a lot of teams above us. Back-to-back wins would see us fly up the table so we've got to stay on a level and keep calm.

"We are really close to getting it right. We're playing well and the results are going to come.

"It's a matter of staying cool and waiting for that to happen.

"There’s no point panicking – there are a lot of games to go. When it does click, we're going to be a force. We just need a few more goals to get those wins."

The Lions face a tricky trip to second-placed Bournemouth this Saturday.

"Bournemouth have had a very good start and they're a very good team," added Upson.

"We'll have to be at the top of our game to go down there and get a result but we've had all week to work on that.

"We've been watching clips and seeing what they do as well as working on our own game."

    Would tend to agree with you Ed, I think we have enough good players in the squad except for a good finisher" which we have again not got in the loan window" to do okay this term, but the personel keep being changed by Ollie which must prove some concern with all of you as to what is his best 11 ??.
    But even with out a 15 a season boy up front we should be good enough to nick a few 1 nils every now and then, the key to begin with is the defence if we dont let them in there we are half way to getting a result, so putting out a regular back 4 I would say is key to anyy sucsess.

    I'd agree if I hadn't heard the same thing several times over the past two years. The only thing to prove it will be results on the pitch.

      @Micky Lions: all we need next is a player saying we're gonna give someone a thrashing one of these days
