Keeper looks for Lions to build on consecutive draws

Millwall and Republic of Ireland number one David Forde wants he and his Lions team-mates to build on last weekend's comeback draw with Wolves in Saturday's live televised game with Cardiff City.

Ian Holloway's side came from 3-0 down to secure a dramatic point at The Den and followed that up with a hard-fought 0-0 draw at Wigan on Tuesday - Millwall's second consecutive away clean sheet.

And Fordey, speaking in Saturday's edition of The Lion, believes the team go into the visit of Cardiff in confident mood.

"We've conceded three sloppy goals (against Wolves) but to show that spirit and commitment was a big boost for us," the 34-year-old says in this weekend's feature interview.

"After the game it felt like we had won. It gives us the confidence we need to build on it with, hopefully, another good performance and win against Cardiff."

Fordey is fast approaching his 300th Millwall appearance, a landmark the keeper is rightly proud of.

"When I first came to the club I was very excited because it was a big step in my career," he says. "I'm very grateful both because of the success we've had and the impact it has had on my person life.

"I'm thoroughly enjoying it here and to reach 300 games is phenomenal because it is such a passionate place to play your football and I hold the club very close to my heart.

"I'm delighted that I signed the extension here in the summer and I would love one day to play in the Premier League with Millwall. That's the ambition and would be really special."
