Maximising potential

16 January 2014

Dunne says Millwall must be at their best to beat Ipswich

Defender Alan Dunne believes that The Lions will have to play at their 'full potential' if they are to gain a much-needed three points from Saturday's Championship match with Ipswich Town (3pm).

The game is Ian Holloway's first in charge at The Den and Dunney, speaking in Saturday's edition of The Lion, says it is time for the side to put a run of results together as they bid to move clear of the Championship drop zone.

"We're not in good form at the moment and that's why the new manager has come in," he said.

"As players we have got to do our jobs better than what we've been doing. There's a lot of quality and experience in the squad this season and we're all desperate to move away from the relegation zone as quickly as possible.

"Our home form, overall, has been OK this season, but only OK. It should be better.

"If we can get three points (against Ipswich) then that will set us on our way, hopefully, to another good run at The Den like the one we had before Christmas.

"Ipswich have been on a good run and we know what to expect from a Mick McCarthy team. They will be difficult to break down, organised, well-drilled and strong.

"But we are confident that we can get a result if we play to our full potential. We need to repeat last week's performance and make the most of any chances we have going forward.

"I'm sure there will be a good crowd at The Den for the manager's first home game, and they will get behind us from start to finish. With that backing we can be a force here, and it's up to us to make sure no team wants to come and play at The Den."
