Gallen: Lions have belief

MILLWALL travel to Southampton in the FA Cup tonight with assistant boss Joe Gallen insisting the Lions are not there simply to make up the numbers.

Darius Henderson's late equaliser ten days ago secured Kenny Jackett's side a fourth-round replay at St. Mary's, where a win will be rewarded with a home tie against Premier League Bolton.

"All our games are big games at the moment and the league is most important," Gallen told the club's official website.

"We thought we played well in the first game against Southampton. We thought we should have won the game and we go there with belief that we can get through.

"Southampton are a big club, they have a big average attendance and historically they are a Premier League side. We will go there with a full squad and I am sure Kenny will pick the strongest eleven we've got – we will be looking to play well and get through so we can get another home tie in the next round.

"I think managers can sometimes become too clever by chopping and changing things around, so what we try and do here is think that it's the next game, our fans are going to turn up to pay and watch us, so we are going to play our best team and not worry about what comes next."
