Millwall midfielder Trotter desperate to end Watford hoodoo

LIAM Trotter insists Millwall can have no excuses if they fail to end their Watford hoodoo at Vicarage Road on Tuesday night.

The Hornets have completed back-to-back doubles over the Lions in the last two seasons but Trotter says that fact will have no bearing on tonight's match.

"This is a completely different Watford side; they have a new manager, a new club ethos with eleven new players," he said.

"So we can’t go there thinking the way we have in recent trips to Watford. We must have the same mentality as we had for the Forest game and win the game."

Trotter was on the scoresheet for the sixth time this season at the City Ground, setting Millwall on their way to a comprehensive 4-1 victory with a stunning finish after just three minutes.

And the midfielder, who was once again linked with Fulham and Southampton in the national press on Monday morning, says he is enjoying the Lions' recent seven-game unbeaten run.

He said: "I was happy to get another goal, it got us on our way and I think it kick started us and gave us the belief to go on to get a great result.

"It's a very good feeling to be looking up rather than down – and looking to win games. But if we lose two games we’ll be back near that relegation zone, so we need to keep focused and not get too carried away."
