Feeney: Millwall can be Championship's surprise package

LIAM Feeney backed Millwall to be the surprise package in the Championship after they beat Leeds United.

Chris Wood's late winner settled a tense encounter at The Den and propelled the Lions up to ninth in the table, just two points outside the play-off positions.

In doing so, Millwall extended their unbeaten run to ten matches and Feeney believes finishing in the top-six is now a realistic aim.

"I think this current squad can achieve anything," he said. "When Leeds went down to ten men we had to be patient because they sat behind the ball a lot.

"But we got the winning goal and I felt it was coming. We were the better team throughout.

"We want to surprise people this year. There always seems to be a team that does that each season, so why can't that be us?

"The togetherness within the squad is more than it ever has been at the moment. We are showing great resilience and great spirit when we are out on the pitch.

"We aren't losing games, we are all grafting for each other and long may it continue."

The major talking point of the win over Leeds was undoubtedly Luke Varney's sending-off for an elbow on Lions loanee Adam Smith.

And while visiting boss Neil Warnock was furious with the decision, Feeney felt the United winger only had himself to blame for his dismissal.

"He raised his elbow and it could have been a nasty injury for Adam," said Feeney.

"He gave the referee a decision to make by raising his elbow. If you live by the sword, you have to die by the sword."

    Today's Countdown Conundrum - COLINWANKER - clue: Manager of Yorkshire Football Club whose fans cannot accept they lost fair and square and need to concentrate on getting results before they get dragged into a relegation fight rather than making childish comments about a club unbeaten in 10 games. See you after the break.
