Up to the task

Trotter says players are fully prepared for QPR test

Lions midfielder Liam Trotter says he and his colleagues have used the international break to 'build as a team' ahead of Saturday's visit of Queens Park Rangers.

Millwall sit in 18th in the Championship table going in the London derby, 15 points behind Harry Redknapp's Rangers, and Trotter, speaking in Saturday's edition of The Lion, predicts that key to a result will be The Lions' ability to remain organised during the 90 minutes.

"There's always stuff to improve on (in training) and it's just been about keeping our shape, working on how QPR are going to play and how we can adapt to that," he said. "After games where you've not shown yourself too well you always do that little bit extra, and against Birmingham and Bournemouth we didn't keep our shape so there has been some work on that."

Saturday's game will be the first meeting between the two clubs since March 2011 when goals from Steve Morison and Trotter himself condemned QPR - then managed by Neil Warnock - to a 2-0 defeat.

"It's a big local derby for us all to look forward to, and I'm sure QPR will feel the same. Whenever they have been here before the games have always been entertaining, and I remember the last one very well. You look ahead to every game on the fixture list but when they come around there's that added bit of excitement and this one is no different. The lads are up for it, particularly as it has been a long time since our last game."
