Time to get going

Ollie spells it out in his programme notes

Boss Ian Holloway believes the Millwall faithful can have a big impact in Saturday's London derby with Charlton Athletic (3pm).

The game is set to attract the biggest attendance of the season at The Den, and Ollie, speaking in Saturday's edition of The Lion, has called on his players to produce a performance that Millwall fans can be proud of.

"Our home form is going to be crucial between now and May," he says. "There has been no bigger game for us so far this season than this one against our local rivals Charlton who need the points every bit as much as we do.

"My job and the players' job right from kick-off is to ensure that we put in the type of performance in a London derby that gets you off your seat and makes you proud of the way the team are representing you on the pitch.

"Your part, then, is to keep giving them the vocal encouragement through the 90 minutes, even if things don't always go right so that our lads feel ten feet tall, and theirs can't wait to get out of here and on the bus home.

"It's what you're good at, and in some ways I feel a bit guilty for having to ask for it. But the reality is we have to make sure we do everything we can to get an edge, and you can help give us that edge."
