Cool and calm

Lions fully focused on three points, says Lowry

Millwall defender Shane Lowry says that The Lions will worry only about themselves when they entertain London rivals Charlton Athletic at The Den on Saturday (3pm).

The Addicks, under the guidance of new Belgian boss Jose Riga, are bottom of the Championship table and three points behind Millwall, although they do have four games in hand.

Lowry, however, speaking in Saturday's edition of The Lion, stops short of calling the game a must-win for the hosts.

"We try to win every game in this League," he says. "We don't want to put too much importance on just the one game, though it is a massive derby and we really want to go out there and get a positive result.

"There are a lot of other games to come and you can't put too much pressure on yourself just to win one. You need to remain cool and calm in situations like this, which is what the lads will be doing; fully focused on getting the three points."

The Australian adds: "We have had a good record against Charlton over the years and I know the fans will be here in their numbers to support us. Playing at their place last year and coming away with a win in front of all of our supporters was brilliant, and I really want to beat them again.

"They will be well up for it as well because they know how big a win would be for their hopes of staying up. But we will only be concentrating on ourselves and not worrying about what anybody else is doing."

There is much more from Lowry in Issue 19 of The Lion, which also includes a letter to Millwall fans from local MP Simon Hughes concerning the regeneration, a gallery from Tim Cahill's return to The Den last week and all the usual input from Ian Holloway, Paul Robinson and fan columnist Merv Payne.
