Dunne calls for improvement against Blackpool

Skipper says Lions need to learn their lessons from Rotherham defeat

Millwall captain Alan Dunne says he and his team-mates need to learn from their League defeat to Rotherham - starting against Blackpool at The Den this Saturday (3pm).

The 1-0 reverse against The Millers ended a 12-game unbeaten run which stretched back to last season and Dunne, speaking in his programme notes for Saturday's visit of The Tangerines, says The Lions have been working hard on forward play in training.

"It was disappointing for our unbeaten run to come to an end in that fashion," the defender says. "We can find plenty of ways to improve as a side based on what we didn't do well enough against Rotherham.

"I'm sure they (Blackpool) will come here and, similarly to Rotherham, try and sit in and make it difficult for us to break them down.

"We need to learn from Saturday's defeat and try and move the ball around more in the final third, making it tough for their defence to just sit back.

"We've been working hard on our attacking play in training for a while now and I'm sure it's only a matter of time before that transfers into more goals out there on the pitch."

There is plenty more to read from Dunne in Saturday's edition of The Lion, which contains all the usual input from our columnists and contributors, plus feature interviews with Ricardo Fuller and Jack Powell. Pick yours up for just £3 from around the ground.
