Trotts targets Tigers return

Liam aims to get Lions back on track

Liam Trotter believes that it would be foolhardy to write off The Lions as Play-Off contenders following Tuesday night's disappointing defeat at Barnsley.
Second-half goals from Chris Dagnall (56mins) and Jason Scotland (67mins) secured a surprise double for the Championship strugglers, but midfielder Trotts feels his side can put that disappointment behind them and get back on track at home to high-flying Hull City on Saturday.
Millwall may have progressed to the Fifth Round of the FA Cup with victory over Aston Villa last Friday, but a return of one win in the last seven Championship games has left The Lions six points adrift of the top six.
“We didn’t get tight to Barnsley’s players and ended up making it too easy for them," he stated.
“The FA Cup is enjoyable but the League is more important. The Championship is our bread and butter and need to do better.
I've got no doubt that we can figure in the race; I believe in the quality we have here and don't forget, we started the season down near the bottom of the Championship.
We then went on a long unbeaten run and if we can do that again, we’ll have every chance and I think we are capable of it.”
Hull City are currently sitting third in the table, only out of second spot on goal difference to Leicester City.
