Skipper Alan looks ahead to Watford

30 October 2014

The squad are excited by the challenge, says Dunne

Millwall captain Alan Dunne says he and his Lions team-mates are confident of upsetting the odds against high-flying Watford on Saturday.

Second to Derby County only on goal difference, The Hornets go into the game on the back of an eight-match unbeaten run and are yet to lose in the League at Vicarage Road. Dunney, though, speaking to millwallfc.co.uk, says The Lions have already shown in 2014/15 that they can cause problems for teams at the top end of the table.

"We've come a long way since the manager arrived here in January, the defender said. "Watford have been a bit of a bogey side for us over the years but now we go into these sorts of games confident in ourselves and believing that we can win.

"Watford have some fantastic ability in their side and they will be a different type of test to what we have come up against so far this season. They have a bit of everything; pace down the flanks, good strikers and they keep the ball well.

"It's a game we're excited about and looking forward to. We're unbeaten in four and have shown, by going to Derby and keeping a clean sheet, plus stopping Nottingham Forest and Cardiff from scoring, that we can be difficult for the teams at the top of the table to play against.

"Our performances have picked up but even before the international break we deserved more points from the games we played. In the last four matches we've had three good draws and got a decent win against Cardiff. That has given us a bit of momentum and we want that to continue. We saw at the end of last year what a good run can do."
