Skipper believes fans can make the difference

Skipper Danny Shittu believes that the roar of 32,000 fans could be crucial as Millwall look to defy the odds and clinch a place in the FA Cup Final at the expense of Premier League Wigan Athletic.
Speaking in this week's Zoo magazine Danny said: "They (Wigan) tend to do well at this stage of the season, but I feel we've been given this path for a reason.
The fans have been allocated just over 30,000 tickets, which is nowhere near enough, but hopefully we can intimidate Wigan and catch them off form."
Shittu said the Millwall supporters are the ace up the sleeve for the Lions.
He added he knows what it's like to be on the wrong end of that atmosphere from his days at former club QPR.
"The fans are so passionate and, when I was at QPR, they were on my back from start to finish," he said.
"It wasn't abusive - just a wall of sound. The Den is a great place. We're like a family."
Manager Kenny Jackett added: "Wigan are capable of giving the best sides in the Premier League a game and a beating but, if we can bring our crowd into play on Saturday, we have a chance."
Family stick together through the highs and lows. That's what we do.
