CHAIRMAN John Berylson believes Millwall's televised clash with Leeds United is a chance to highlight the "vibrant" side of the club after weeks of negative publicity.

The Lions have found themselves in the press for all the wrong reasons in the wake of the ongoing Marvin Sordell saga but Berylson sees the visit of the Whites, which will be broadcast on Sky, as an opportunity to set the record straight.

"It gives us the chance to show a wider audience the quality of football Kenny Jackett has now got the team playing," he wrote in a letter to fans.

"It is also an opportunity for us to demonstrate the positive side of our club. We have received more than our share of unwarranted negative publicity in recent weeks.

"It is up to us all to use the platform of live TV coverage to show the wider world that we are a vibrant, passionate club with great fans who support their team in the right way.

"There is always a bit of added excitement when we play Leeds. They are a massive club with a great tradition, and our rivalry dates back to some epic encounters we had with them in League One.

"Even though geographically we are not close, games between us create something of a derby atmosphere which usually ensures a thrilling game on the pitch."
