Making home advantage count

Robbo hopes Lions can climb above Bolton with a Den victory

Millwall skipper Paul Robinson believes Tuesday's draw with Yeovil will become a better result if The Lions earn all three points against Bolton at The Den on Saturday (3pm).

Steve Morison scored a second-half equaliser to secure a 1-1 draw with The Glovers and Robbo, speaking in his programme notes in Saturday's edition ofThe Lion, says the squad are confident of building on that result against The Trotters.

"Tuesday was a huge game for both sides, and we knew how tough a challenge it would be," he said.

"Huish Park is a tough place to go, and Gary Johnson's side are honest, hard working, competitive and play to their strengths.

"But the boys dug in, and those who came into the team, particularly Fordey, were excellent. He made some important saves for us, and to come from behind to secure a point showed good character and kept some daylight between us and them, which was crucial.

"That result will look better if we can earn a win against Bolton. They are another side who are battling for Championship safety, and with home advantage, hopefully we can move a few points clear of the relegation zone and climb above Dougie Freedman's side in the process.

"Every game between now and the end of the season is massive for us, but with a new manager and a handful of new players, we are in a period of transition at the moment. That being said, the lads are confident that we can improve week by week, and the squad are learning more about what the gaffer wants from us with every passing day."
