Striker Stefan spells it out
Goal hero Stefan Maierhofer believes that Millwall's excellent 2-1 win at Middlesbrough will mean nothing unless The Lions can follow that result up with another big performance in Monday's relegation showdown against Doncaster at The Den (3pm).
Striker Stefan signed on a short-term contract in March having been without a club since leaving Cologne last summer. Despite training throughout those months when he was without a club, the 31-year-old has got up to match fitness remarkably quickly, as shown by those two clinical headed finishes at the Riverside Stadium.
Now The Lions have to try and replicate their recent impressive away form of three wins on the spin on home soil, where The Lions have mustered just one win since the turn of the year.
"It was a great feeling to score my first goals for the club and I work hard every day in training," said Stefan, "But the most important thing is that we took the points. I got great deliveries from Lee (Martin) for both goals and we played very well as a team. In the end, even though there was a bit of pressure from Middlesbrough it was a big three points for us.
"It is a new situation for me to come here and every game is a pressure game. I am having a really good time at Millwall though. It is important that having taken the big points away at Middlesbrough now we must do it at The Den on Monday.
"People keep saying that we do not have a chance but we went to Forest and won and then three days later we went to Wigan and won and now Middlesbrough. Each time the gaffer says the right words, it's very important for everyone at the club that we stay up. We will only do that if we can take the points at The Den and the crowd can help us do that against Doncaster because we must win."
