Nelson hoping for repeat performance

20 March 2015

Millwall defender Sid looks ahead to Brentford

Sid Nelson is hopeful that a repeat of their last two performances will help Millwall secure a result against Brentford on Saturday.

The Lions drew 0-0 with Brighton at The Den on Tuesday night - a scoreline which followed the 2-0 defeat away to Bolton - and whilst Neil Harris' side have picked up just one point since he took interim charge last week, performances are much improved and have given fans a renewed sense of optimism.

Nelson, who came in for the suspended Alan Dunne against The Seagulls, will hope to keep his place at Griffin Park when Millwall face a Brentford side battling for promotion to the Premier League.

"Brentford have been flying," the young defender said. "But I think if we put in another performance like we did on Tuesday night - and I know we didn't get a result but the performance on Saturday (against Bolton) was good - then I'm sure we can get a point or even three."

A large Millwall following will be making the short journey across London for Saturday's game and Nelson hopes he and his team-mates can once again give them a performance full of spirit, determination and desire.

"When you have got the fans behind you it makes everything a lot easier," he said. 

"They want certain things from you and we have got to give that to them.

"I think we did (against Brighton); putting pressure high up the pitch, giving everything and showing 110 per cent."
