JORDAN Archer said he is still learning to dominate his penalty box after another inspired performance against Peterborough on Tuesday.
He helped the Lions to a second clean sheet in the last three games and was a composed and reassuring presence behind his defence.
The 22-year-old former Tottenham keeper also confidently claimed a number of tricky crosses and again praised David Forde for his influence in helping him to command his area.
Archer said: “I’m still young and I’m learning a lot. The boys did well and it’s always good to be able to help out and make saves. They dug in deep and when we scored that goal you could see on the pitch how much it meant to us.
“It’s been good to learn from Fordey because he’s very vocal so that’s something that I’m adding to my game.
“If I see something on the pitch I’m not afraid to tell people about it, that’s part and parcel of the game and it’s part of my job.”
Archer also feels that Millwall’s poor start to the season, and in particular their home form, has been viewed out of context with a long campaign still ahead.
After a frenetic few weeks, the Lions now have a break with players away on international duty and the goalkeeper hopes to build on a first home win of the season when league action resumes on September 12.
“We can’t hide from (the defeats),” Archer said. “It’s been a bad few games but it’s just a few games of a very long season so we’ve just got to put them behind us.
“I’m sure we’re going to come up trumps more at home.”
