Hof: We can turn this around

7 February 2015

Striker Stefan confident that the tide will turn

Millwall striker Stefan Maierhofer is confident that The Lions can bounce back from Saturday's disappointing home defeat by 10-man Huddersfield Town in what he calls 'a big week for the club'.

The Lions stayed in the Championship drop zone as a result of Town's 3-1 victory, but defeats for fellow strugglers Brighton, Leeds, Blackpool, Wigan and Charlton leave The Lions two points away from safety with away trips to Birmingham City and Leeds coming up in the next seven days.

Stefan, whose first-half equaliser against Huddersfield was his first since re-joining The Lions for a second spell at the club, admitted to mixed emotions after Saturday's game.

"I was happy last week when I didn't score and we won at Nottingham Forest," he said. "It is so disappointing to lose this game today. I thought at times that we played well.

"On Tuesday at Birmingham I will be happy if we play badly and win. It is a big week for us with games at St Andrews and Elland Road but we can turn this around. I am confident of that.

"The spirit in the squad is still very good and it is a bit of a similar situation to when I came in last season, except we have more games left. We got out of it then and I feel we have enough about us to get out of the bottom three.

"It is a big week for us, but we will be in training on Monday and ready to go again."
