Ollie calls for concentration

18 April 2014

Manager wants squad not to focus on results elsewhere

Millwall boss Ian Holloway believes his side's last four results will count for nothing unless they replicate their upturn in form in the crucial final quartet of fixtures.

The Lions head to Middlesbrough on Saturday (3pm) just a point from safety, knowing a win could draw them level on points with Doncaster, Monday's opponents, who sit in 19th.

"There's four or five teams down there that are desperate to stay at this level," the boss told Lions Player.

"The truth is that three teams will go down out of about six at the moment and where we are is in one of those places. I believe that the ones who are out of that zone at the moment will have fear in them because they will be looking over their shoulder."

Relegation rivals Yeovil, Charlton, Blackpool and Doncaster all play on Good Friday, a day before Millwall kick-off at the Riverside Stadium, but Ollie insists his team can't let results elsewhere act as a distraction.

"It's not about anybody else, it's about us. Whatever happens on Friday night we will have to do what we have got to do anyway. It will either be harder or easier, but I know how tough it is going to be anyway. There's hardly any margin of error so let's concentrate on doing our job."
