Point to prove

10 April 2014

Bailey features in Saturday's Lion

Nicky Bailey believes that Lions fans are yet to see him anywhere near the best of him in a Millwall shirt.

The midfielder returned from a long-term back injury to play a key role in the wins over Nottingham Forest and Wigan, but Nicky, speaking in Saturday's edition of The Lion for the visit of Watford, believes he still has a point to prove to the club's supporters.

"I had the knee injury before Christmas as well which kept me out for five weeks so it has been a little bit stop-start in a way since I've been here," the 29-year-old said.

"I know there is a lot more than I can offer that so far I haven't and that is another huge frustration for me.

"It isn't through not trying hard enough because I'm the type of player who will always give 100% in every game. I want to prove myself more and more."

Including Saturday's visit of The Hornets, Ian Holloway's side have three crucial home games remaining to pick up enough points to secure the club's Championship status. According to Nicky, only nine points from those three will do.

"Every game is a must-win now. With the way things have gone we're not in a position to believe we could afford a draw here or a loss there. We need to win them all because you want to be safe as quickly as possible.

"It's a tough ask but while the games are still there it is in our hands."

There is much more from Nicky in Saturday's matchday programme, which also includes all the usual input from boss Ollie, skipper Paul Robinson and fan columnist Merv Payne.
