Keeper Archer pays tribute to Millwall's work ethic

2 November 2015

Lions shot-stopper Jordan delighted with seventh clean sheet of the campaign

Millwall keeper Jordan Archer was quick to praise his team-mates as The Lions made it four home games on the bounce without conceding a goal with a 0-0 result against Bradford City at the weekend.

Since shipping five goals at Peterborough United at the beginning of October, Jordan and his team-mates have really put in the hours on the training pitch working on defending as a team - and that has clearly paid off as The Lions have concede just twice in the six matches since.

Speaking to the press after Saturday's game, the former Spurs shot-stopper, who has kept seven clean sheets in all this season, said: "The boys did well to get another one.

"When there's a clean sheet, it is usually the goalkeeper who gets all the credit, but I don't think Bradford had even one effort on target - and that's down to the boys at the back.

"There was bad communication in the first-half. They gave me a bit and I gave them a bit back. If I can see any player who is not concentrating I give them a verbal kick up the backside to get them going.

"Giving them out is something I have tried to improve on. And I hope people give the same to me.

"All this is not a negative. It shows everyone is committed to the cause and helps the team."

The 22-year-old also had special praise for fellow goalkeeper David Forde, whom he says has been a massive support in his first full season at Millwall.

"Fordey has been first class," added Jordan, "Giving me advice before the game and at half-time.

"If he sees stuff that I can improve on then he is the first to tell me."
