Fans were incredible says skipper

9 April 2014

Dunne praises Lions faithful

Alan Dunne paid tribute to the travelling fans who provided magnificent vocal support for Millwall at Wigan on Tuesday night.

Dunney, whose return to the team as skipper has coincided with back-to-back wins at Nottingham Forest and then Wigan said:

"Credit to them. Their support has been incredible. To work all week then spend their hard earned cash to go to Forest and then Wigan on a Tuesday night is definitely appreciated by the lads.

"I threw my top to our fans at the end to show some appreciation - and at least it wasn't chucked back at me so I must have done alright!

"It was a good performance by us, and important too coming on the back of our victory at Forest. People may have written us off but we are Millwall and we will fight to stay in this division; we are not going to go down without giving it everything we've got.

"The manager deserves a huge amount of credit though because every day since he has been here, even when we have been beaten, he has believed in us as a group of players and got us going again.

"It's important though that we don't get carried away because we have still got five games to go and you just can't predict anything in this division."

Dunney knows perhaps better than most that it would be foolhardy to take anything for granted going into this Saturday's home game against free-scoring Watford.

The scars of Millwall's relegation on the final day of the 1995/6 season still run deep to fans of a certain age, when The Lions were unable to record the one win from their last four games needed to secure their Division One status.

"Watford will come here on Saturday confident after their win against Leeds," said Dunney, "But we have to go out and approach it like a normal game, not build it up into being anything different. We've got to do our work, play our own game and see where we are at the end of that.

"We've got five matches left and yes, it's good to get some points on the board as we have done this past week, but we've got an awful lot of work to do still."
