Playing it cool

Big prize - same approach

Keeper David Forde and midfielder Liam Trotter already have Wembley experience under their belts and would dearly love the chance of an FA Cup Semi-Final tilt against Wigan at the national stadium.
But the two Lions stars insist that the Millwall team will treat Wednesday night's Quarter Final replay at Ewood Park like any other game.
"I don't feel any more nervous before this game and we won't approach it any differently just because of what's at stake," said Trotts. "We're facing a side we've already played twice this season and we certainly won't be thinking beyond playing to the best of our ability against them, believing that we are capable of getting through."
Fordey added: "Most of the lads in the squad have experienced big games like this before so I don't think it will phase anybody. We know we're capable of getting the result we need up there and we'll just focus on playing our own game."
Should the game go beyond the 90 minutes and extra-time to a penalty shoot-out, Trotter, as Millwall's main penalty taker, and Forde whose record of saving spot kicks is impressive, could have key roles to play.
Kenny Jackett hinted that he main tweak the personnel and tactics slightly, but is set to select from the same squad as Sunday.
Lions fans who have not yet purchased their tickets will be able to pay on the day at Ewood Park, with prices £18 adults. £12 seniors and students (ID required) and £6 U16s. 
The tie is also being broadcast live once again on ESPN, with the earlier than usual kick-off time of 7.30pm.
