Dunne: United we stand

23 February 2015

Skipper believes solidity great base on which to build

There's a simple saying that if you don't concede goals you can't lose games, and Millwall are determined to start capitalising on an improved defensive record by making opportunities count at the other end.

Saturday's 0-0 derby draw with Fulham saw Ian Holloway's team record a 13th shut-out in all competitions this season, and with a little more accuracy in front of goal The Lions could have been celebrating a first home win since October instead of sharing the spoils with their relegation rivals.

Captain Alan Dunne believes that both his team and Lions fans can take great heart from a run of four clean sheets in six games as The Lions head into action against Sheffield Wednesday at The Den on Tuesday night.

"We've got to keep picking up clean sheets and points. With 15 games to go, a team that is keeping clean sheets is a good sign," said Dunney.

"The teams around us aren't really doing that so it was a positive that we picked up another clean sheet at the weekend.

"It's a shame we couldn't put the ball in the back of the net but any point in this league is a good point.

"We've got some great link play around the box but our end product and our final ball – someone heading it in or anticipating a cross – isn't quite there.

"Everyone has got to chip in with goals because it's something we're missing. We're getting a lot of half-chances but it's not going in the back of the net.

"It is difficult, but we will keep going until something drops for someone."
