Wallace: 'Millwall have overachieved massively – but I still feel frustrated'

JED Wallace admitted “it does get in your head” going so long without an away victory in the league – but says the side now expect to win every game as they try to make it four in a row on the road this weekend.

The Lions go to Burton having won three games away from home in the league, after not getting their first victory outside of The Den until January 20.

Despite Millwall exceeding a lot of people’s expectations, Wallace still feels “frustrated” they aren’t higher in the table.

But he admits they are full of confidence before they go to the Pirelli Stadium on Saturday.

“It does get in your head, when you haven’t won away from home in 12 games it does bother you,” Wallace said. “Every way game you think, ‘oh, Christ’, whereas now we think we’re going to win every game.

“We’ve overachieved massively but I still feel frustrated. We let ourselves down so much before Christmas, because even if we had five more points now we would be looking up.

“As a promoted team, to do what we’ve done, to be above Hull, Sunderland, Sheffield Wednesday, within touch of Leeds and Norwich with the spending power that those clubs have, is a credit to everyone, from the tea lady to the gaffer.

“I said it two years ago when I arrived that it was a club that deserved to be in the Championship and we deserve to be here. It’s an exciting time to be part of this club.”
