Wallace: 'Millwall fans have been very good – there is a positive atmosphere at The Den'

JED Wallace believes it is “an exciting time to be a Millwall fan” after the encouraging start to the Championship season.

Although the Lions have just two points on the board, they have dominated four games but been unable to convert the majority of the numerous chances they have created.

Millwall welcome another of the big guns, Norwich City, to The Den this weekend and Wallace feels the supporters “deserve” to watch their side play against high-profile clubs.

“It’s an exciting time to be a Millwall fan,” Wallace said. “The fans have been really good as well. When I turn up at The Den there is a really positive atmosphere. They’re expecting good things for us.

“It’s an exciting time to be part of Millwall. The support we got last season, the fans deserve these big teams coming to The Den. I know there will be highlights for them, they’ll be looking at Leeds and Sunderland and looking forward to them.

“But almost every game there are big football clubs. And I’ve said it before, this is where Millwall deserve to be. When I signed first time two years ago I said Millwall should be in the Championship. That’s where we are now and we’ve to start winning games.

“I don’t care who it is, no one will relish coming to The Den. Fans make the atmosphere hostile and we’ve got to be on top of teams the way Millwall can.”
