We're not Dunne for just yet

20 April 2015

Don't write us off warns skipper

If anyone is well placed to understand just what a rollercoaster ride life with the Lions can be, then skipper Alan Dunne is that man.

Defender Dunney has pretty much seen it all since joining the club as a 10-year-old, and in the last 11 years alone, has seen Millwall involved in promotion success, relegation battles, an FA Cup Cup Final, UEFA Cup football plus Play-Off Final joy and pain.

But with The Lions approaching the last three games of the current season and four-points adrift from safety, the defender believes that cool heads and nerves of steel are vital if the team are to pull off a miraculous escape.

Millwall head to Blackburn tomorrow night, then host Play-Off hopefuls Derby County on Saturday before finishing the season with a trip to Wolves, who themselves are still involved in a battle for a top six spot.

"Our run-in is difficult but we feel that we have a chance now," said Dunney speaking to the media after Saturday's 0-0 draw at Cardiff City. "We have three huge games now starting at Blackburn on Tuesday.

"We are scrapping for our lives so it is up to us to get the job done. We have put the pressure on other teams before and have shown that we can play under pressure.

"We've survived the last two years by the skin of our teeth, but if we do it this time it will be the greatest escape ever by the club."
