Skipper Dunne remaining upbeat

29 September 2014

'We have to stick to our principles', says defender

Millwall skipper Alan Dunne says he and his team-mates must stick to their principles as they look to end a four-game winless run against Birmingham City at The Den on Tuesday.

Ian Holloway's side slipped to a 2-1 loss at Huddersfield on Saturday - the third defeat from the last four League games - but Dunney is remaining upbeat about the challenges ahead.

"We have shown for the most part this season that we can cause problems for teams in this division," he writes in Tuesday night's edition of The Lion. "There is certainly nothing out there that scares us.

"We have to stick to our principles of dominating possession and working opportunities that way because that has always been the basis for our good results over the past 10 months or so. We all know that this can be an unforgiving League and that every tiny error can be punished and ultimately cost you points.

"There are only nine Championship games gone which means there are over 100 points left to play for. We can take great encouragement from the fact that we are only five points points outside the Play-Off places.

"The games are coming thick and fast at the moment which gives us an ideal opportunity to quickly put the disappointment of Saturday's game at Huddersfield behind us."

Read much more from Dunney in Tuesday's edition of The Lion, which also includes lengthy interviews with Shaun Williams and Nicky Bailey.
