KENNY Jackett says Millwall will relish the chance to test themselves against one of the most expensively-assembled teams in the division on Saturday.
The Lions meet Blackburn Rovers in a league fixture for the first time in 20 years and can overtake the Lancashire club in the table with a win.
But Jackett says he is under "no allusions" as to the size of the task facing his squad – Rovers spent £11million on new players last summer after their relegation from the Premier League.
The trip to Ewood Park is the first of two massive away games for Millwall, who also travel to Wolves on Tuesday.
"They're great games, ones we look forward to and they can't quickly enough for us," Jackett said. "It's great to be in this league. We're very pleased to be in here and competing.
"As a manager going to Ewood Park and Molineux are games to look forward to, as they should be for the players. It's a very expensive division and we want do well.
"They will be big challenges and we're under no illusions. We have to be working hard for every point, because every point is hard-earned in this division."
