Taylor: Blackburn game will be test of Millwall's credentials

CHRIS Taylor believes Millwall will face a stern test of their play-off credentials when they travel to Blackburn Rovers on Saturday.

The Lions can extend their unbeaten run to 11 matches – and potentially break into the top-six – if they avoid defeat in Lancashire, but Taylor says doing so will not be easy.

The match at Ewood Park is the first of two successive away games for Kenny Jackett's side, who come up against another of the recently-relegated sides in Wolves on Tuesday.

"I'd love nothing more than to beat Blackburn," Taylor told Lions Live. "They're a massive club that's just come down from the Premier League.

"If we win we will overtake them in the league which would be another big step for us. Everything points to it being a big game and hopefully we can go there and get a positive result.

"These are two massive games. I don't think they come much bigger in the league than going to Ewood Park and Molineux.

"It will be a test of how far we've come and what we can do. I'm really looking forward to both games.

"We had a team meeting on Thursday and we know that they're both two big clubs but we will worry about ourselves. If we play to our best we will give them more than a good game."

Millwall's surge up the Championship table in recent weeks has prompted talk of promotion but Taylor reckons it is too early to be thinking about the end of the season.

"We can achieve whatever we want to if we put our minds to it," he added. "It's all about consistency and we've found that over the last ten games.

"We'll see where that takes it but it's still early. We probably won't truly know what we're going to aim for until February or March."
