Mark Beevers: Reach for the top

11 August 2014

Defender believes 'the sky is the limit' for Millwall

Mark Beevers believes that there is no limit to what Millwall can achieve this season.

Saturday's opening day 2-0 win against Leeds United provided an encouraging start to the 2014-15 campaign, and defender Mark is confident that The Lions can kick on and enjoy a successful year.

The Lions look to keep the momentum going on Tuesday night when they host League Two side Wycombe, who also got the season off to a flying start with a 2-0 win at Newport County.

"The sky is the limit in my opinion," said Yorkshireman Mark, who scored the opening goal in Saturday's Den success.

"We've got the players in the squad to go all the way. The manager has been saying that we are second favourites to go down, and that's disrespectful to be honest with what he has done at his previous clubs and the players we've got down here.

"We've got some really good players so I don't see why we are second favourites.

"But we can just answer those people who have put us in that category by winning games and playing well, which is what we did against Leeds.

"We've done nothing so far, we've won game and we've got to take it into the next one and progress from there."

Centre-half Mark knows, however, that The Lions can take nothing for granted on Tuesday night as they host a Wycombe side in the Capital One Cup First Round for the second time in four years.

When the two teams last met at Adams Park on 10th August 2010 a last-minute goal from sub - and now skipper - Alan Dunne secured a 2-1 win.

Having scored his second goal for Millwall in nearly two years at the weekend, Mark will be hoping to add to his tally sooner rather than later.

"I don't get many like that to be fair," he added. "It was just nice to score.

"I've been down here three years now and I've got one in the game at Crystal Palace, which was a massive goal, but it is nice to get one down at The Den in front of a great crowd.

"I thought it was going to be the winner but Shaun Williams stepped up and got the penalty.

"Even so, on a personal note it was really good to score and I hope there isn't such a big gap before the next one!"
