Millwall assistant not getting carried away after Forest win

JOE Gallen says Millwall can not afford to get carried away after their impressive 4-1 win over Nottingham Forest at the City Ground.

The Lions scored three second-half goals to stun high-flying Forest and extend their unbeaten run to seven matches, but Gallen has already turned his attention to the game against Watford on Tuesday.

"It is a big achievement for us to come here and win, let alone score four goals and play as well as we did," he said.

"But if we talk it up and say how great it was, that worries me. The key thing for us is not to get too carried away because if you do that in this league, you become unstuck.

"We've got a game coming up against Watford and we haven't beaten them in our last four matches. The next challenge for us is to go to Watford, upset them and see if we can get some points."

Free-flowing Millwall have now scored 11 goals in their last three matches and Gallen admitted that the Lions' recent performances have raised a few eyebrows.

"Sometimes our players get underrated," he said. "Darius Henderson, Chris Wood, Andy Keogh and Liam Trotter are decent players and particularly good at scoring goals. In the last few weeks they've shown that.

"When we saw the team that Forest had out, and then their bench, we were worried. Our players, fans and manager can take credit from the game but by tomorrow it's all over."
