McDonald expecting tough test

22 August 2014

Australian looking forward to Saturday's challenge

Scott McDonald believes Rotherham United will provide Millwall with one of their most difficult games of 2014/15 so far on Saturday.

The Millers went up to the Championship this summer after back-to-back promotions and, despite narrowly losing two of their opening three League matches, have received praise for their performances so far.

"They're going to be a very tough side to play against," McDonald says in Saturday's edition of The Lion.

"From all the reports of their first couple of games you could see that they have impressed, even at Derby in a game which they narrowly lost.

"Their manager will have them well-drilled and organised and they aren't in this division to have a party or enjoy themselves; they're here because they want to do well and put a statement out.

"They will come here to win which will provide us with a good challenge. It's a game we're all looking forward to."

The Lions will be looking to maintain their unbeaten start to the campaign against Steve Evans' side and McDonald believes the club's good start is all down to a strong sense of belief amongst the players.

"It's gone really well which has probably been a surprise to a lot of people, but not to us," the Australian says.

"The belief in the camp is very strong at the minute and off the back of last year, plus the work we put in during pre-season, we've gone into this campaign confident."
