LIAM Trotter says he will continue to shy away from the limelight until Millwall climb up the Championship table.

Trotter scored a crucial penalty in the Lions' 2-2 draw with Crystal Palace on Saturday, his fourth goal of the season, but the 24-year-old played down his recent good form.

"I always judge my own form by how the team is doing," he said. "We're not near the top of the table at the moment so I'd rather see the team do better than talk about myself.

"You have to say it's a good point because we were 2-0 down, but personally I'm disappointed we didn't get all three.

"Momentum is one of the most important things in football and we've got to keep going now."

Millwall are back in league action on Tuesday night when they welcome Birmingham City to The Den and will be keen to avoid a repeat of their 6-0 drubbing by the Blues last term.

"We owe them one to a certain extent but last year was an unrealistic game given that we were down to nine men," he said.

"For us it's like any other home game and we'll be going for the three points. If we can beat Birmingham it will have been a very good start to the week."
