JOSH Wright believes Millwall have what it takes to exact revenge on Crawley Town in the League Cup on Tuesday night after losing to the Sussex side in pre-season.

Goals from Billy Clarke and former Den favourite Gary Alexander helped the Reds defeat the Lions in July but Wright feels that now, in a competitive fixture, Millwall have the ability to progress to the second round of the Capital One Cup.

He told Lions Player: "We met them in pre-season and then drew them in the cup – it is funny how it works out but they got the better of us that day and they deserved the result.

"It is up to us now to get the result when it really matters"

"We are going to have to work hard. We have seen what Crawley have about them but I think we have what it takes.

"It is up to us to put in the work on the training ground between now and then to get the result for us and the fans and to get the season underway with a win."

Wright also feels that while Millwall haven't splashed the cash like some clubs in the division this summer, the Lions still have a squad that can go toe-to-toe with any opponent in the Championship.

"There has been a few clubs who have pumped a lot of money in but I think that if you have a good squad,  anyone can beat anyone in this division.

"I the gaffer has worked well and brought a few good players in.

"A good start is crucial and can be key. I think if you were to go through the stats you would see that so it would be nice to get a good start, but it is a long season."
