ALEX Smithies says Huddersfield will be out for retribution whey they face Millwall for the first time since their play-off semi final defeat at The Den three seasons ago.

The Lions went on to win promotion from League One at Wembley in 2010 after beating the Terriers 2-0 on aggregate over two legs, and goalkeeper Smithies wants revenge.

The Yorkshire side are riding high in seventh position in the Championship table but arrive in SE16 on Saturday on the back of a surprise 3-1 defeat at Peterborough in midweek.

"For me personally, we got beat there in the play-off semi-finals a few years ago so I want to go there and put that right and beat them," he said.

"But every game is difficult, you have to give it everything in every game no matter where the other team are in the league and Saturday is no different.

"You get stick from the fans at every away game, but I think at Millwall it's a little bit more intense than other grounds, but we've just got to focus on playing the game  if we can play the way we can do, it won't be a problem.

"It doesn't affect me in the slightest, I'm used to it now and see it as a bit of banter. I don't take any of it personally."
