Jimmy Abdou: Anything is possible

6 March 2015

"We have 11 games remaining now and every one is going to be like a Cup Final"

Jimmy Abdou has described Millwall's 11 remaining Championship games as '11 Cup Finals' - and insists that the team have far from thrown in the towel in the battle to avoid relegation to League One.

The Lions are currently six points adrift from safety host high-flying Norwich City at The Den on Saturday, an occasion that is not only the club's Ninth Annual Dockers' Day, but also our Prostate Cancer focus match.

For midfielder-turned-right-back Jimmy, who made his 250th start for Millwall at Middlesbrough on Tuesday, the game provides an opportunity for The Lions to knuckle down and bring an end to a miserable run of form that has not seen his side win at The Den since October last year.

"We have 11 games remaining now and every one is going to be like a Cup Final," said Jimmy. "On Tuesday it was my 250th start for Millwall and that was big for me; but the most important thing was to win the game and unfortunately we lost it.

"I am really proud and happy to have reached that and hopefully there will be more to come, but it is not about me, it is about the team and what we can do in the next 11 games. It's going to be tough, but we have to be professional and go out there and get the points that we need.

"We saw last year that nothing is impossible and we will try our best to do what we did last year - even better than last year - to get the points we need."

A full interview with Jimmy, including his thoughts on switching to right-back, is available to Lions Player subscribers.
