Den focus

Dunney calls on home improvement

Right-back Alan Dunne has called on the side to build on their 3-1 win over Blackpool in an attempt to overcome the club's disappointing home form.

The victory over The Tangerines was Millwall's first at home this season, and Dunney, speaking in Saturday's edition of The Lion, believes the side must focus on turning The Den into one of the toughest places to come to in the League.

"We managed to beat Blackpool but on the whole we have to get our home record back on track, " he said. "It hasn't been good enough for a long while now and if we are to have any chance of success this year we need to work on getting that right.

"The fans have played a big role for us. As players, we understood their frustration of late, and I'm totally with them on that. They stood by us after going a goal down against Blackpool and were fantastic. When they are on song The Den is a very tough place to come and play for opposition teams.

"We've got to do our own bit, too. We have to start games here well and all show that we're playing for the shirt and giving 100 per cent. Players and fans have to work off each other, as was the case against Blackpool and again at Charlton."

Opponents Leeds United travel to South London on the back of three defeats, including Wednesday's Capital One Cup elimination at the hands of Newcastle United, and the defender can't wait for kick-off.

"It's a fantastic game and any player would be lying if they said they're not buzzing to play in a Millwall v Leeds match at The Den.

"Our games over the years have been brilliant to play in and we've developed a rivalry which means bragging rights are at stake. We want to come out on top."
