Massive improvement

31 January 2014

Malone highlights progress under Ollie in Saturday's programme

Millwall defender Scott Malone says he and his team-mates must take the game to free-scoring Reading in Saturday's Championship match at The Den.

The Royals have scored 12 goals in their last three League games but Malone, speaking in Saturday's edition of matchday programme The Lion, believes Millwall have what it takes to earn what would be a crucial victory.

"We played well when we went to their place earlier in the season and got a point late on, but I think with home advantage we can get even more on Saturday," he said.

"We've only conceded one goal in two home matches, which is a massive improvement on how we've been defending as a whole for the last few months.

"I don't think the fact that Reading have scored loads of goals recently will trouble us too much. The onus is on us to take the game to them.

"We need to pick up points and fast, and that's all we're trying to do at the minute.

"Hopefully, when we do get some wins under our belts, that's when we can start to really try and change the way we play but like I say, for the moment, we need points on the board to climb away from the relegation zone."

Malone, subject of The Lion's main feature on Saturday, also discusses his form in 2013/14, his gratitude to former boss Steve Lomas, and praises the impact new manager Ian Holloway has had on the club since arriving earlier this month.

Saturday's edition also contains notes from Chairman John Berylson, plus all the usual input from Ollie, Paul Robinson, fan columnist Merv Payne and much, much more.
