Dunne delight

18 June 2014

Defender excited by opening day encounter

Alan Dunne believes he and his team-mates couldn't have asked for a better opening day fixture after it was confirmed that Leeds United would visit The Den on Saturday 9th August.

The Lions have five League games in August, including a London derby with Fulham and the visit of newly promoted Rotherham United, and Dunne can't wait for the big kick-off.

"To start with a game at The Den against Leeds is exciting," the defender said. "It's the perfect opening day game. The fans will be there in numbers so it promises to be a cracking atmosphere."

He added: "As a player you look to all the really big games, especially the local derbies, so to get one at Fulham in the second week of the season is great for us.

"I can't wait for pre-season to start. There's some hard work to be done between now and August 9th but we'll be ready."
