NIGEL Clough insists Derby will travel to The Den without any fear despite Millwall's "remarkable" eight-match unbeaten run.

The Rams won back-to-back home games against Barnsley and Blackpool last week to propel themselves up to ninth in the Championship table and Clough is confident of a third successive victory.

"The way Kenny sets his team up makes Millwall hard to break down, and then they get the crowd going as well," he said.

"It's one of those grounds where it's never full when we go down there but it always had an intimidating atmosphere. They use that to their full advatange.

"Eight games unbeaten is a remarkable run in the Championship. It shows you that draws are very important. You're not going to win every game and it gives you confidence.

"We felt that during our five-game run earlier this season. We've only lost one in our last eight so we're on similar sorts of runs.

"However, we have a side that isn't daunted by going to places now. We all know about the honesty of the side, but we also know performance-wise we are more than a match for anyone in this league, so we won't go there with any fear."
