Interim boss Neil looks ahead to London derby with Brentford

Neil Harris is hopeful that his Millwall side can give fans reasons to cheer when The Lions visit Brentford on Saturday (1pm).

The club's allocation of tickets for the game at Griffin Park has sold out and Chopper, whose side were backed by a vocal Den crowd on Tuesday, says he and his players appreciate the support they have been receiving from the Lions faithful.

"The fans can get us through it," the interim manager said. "That's the bottom line.

"We're second from bottom in a very tough division and the fans are backing the players 100 per cent.

"They have spent their money to come across London and hopefully we can give them something to cheer about. We certainly appreciate the support."

Millwall sit eight points from the Championship safety zone while London rivals Brentford have entirely different aspirations over the remaining games as they bid for promotion to the Premier League. 

"It's a local derby so that brings the extra spice to the game," Chopper said.

"It's a good one for us with two teams looking for points for very different reasons.

"It's a very good Brentford team looking for a top two finish in this division.

"We're scrapping at the moment and in the last couple of games we have certainly scrapped.

"There is lots for us to build on and it's a big test going to Brentford. I look forward to seeing my players in that test."
