AIDEN O’Brien believes Millwall shouldn’t settle for a top-six place in League One and must look to climb higher.

Millwall claimed three points from a losing position at Chesterfield on Saturday, the first time they had come from behind to win since the opening day of the season in August.

O’Brien, with his 11th goal of the season, cancelled out Sam Morsy’s opener, before Lee Gregory scored the winner.

The result moved Millwall up to sixth place in the table, at least until the midweek fixtures, 11 points off second place.

“That just shows the work rate and desire we have as a Millwall team, we never lose faith,” O’Brien said. “We go behind to a great strike from the lad but we showed strength, we showed faith that we were going to come back and we did.

“It’s always hard to go away from home and get a result, especially at the business end of the season.

“But we have strong-minded players, players who always egg each other on. We’ve got a lot of team players who want to win. There’s always time to score, even if there’s 90 minutes on the clock, we never lose faith.

“We need to do everything we can to stay in the top six. We’re not going to drop, we need to go up and up.

“With our team, even the ones on the bench or not in the squad, we’re all good enough to be in the top six and good enough to go up, I believe.”
