Aiden O'Brien: This result gives us so much confidence

Millwall striker in upbeat mood after weekend win at Sheffield United

Aiden O'Brien described Saturday's 2-1 win at Sheffield United as 'massive' - but then insisted that Millwall need to stay focused and not undo all their good work by slipping up against Doncaster Rovers.

Striker Aiden, 22, took his season's tally to seven goals with a brace either side of a Jose Baxter effort as The Lions recorded a fourth away win of the campaign at Nigel Adkins' fancied Blades.

Having now lost just twice in the last 12 games, there is no lack of confidence in the Millwall camp ahead of Tuesday night's Den encounter with struggling Doncaster.

"We started the season shaky, but that's all behind us and we are not losing too much," Aiden told the assembled press after Saturday's game. "But I don't want to jinx it too much, so it is important that we don't get ahead of ourselves. We need to stay level-headed.

"It was a massive win against Sheffield though, we just wanted to do our best and to come and get a 2-1 result and for me to score the winner, well, I'm buzzing.

"We should have won in our previous game at Blackpool but a late, late, late penalty got them a point so to get all three points from this game with a late goal ourselves was great.

"They had a lot of the ball and we sat off and in the second-half we didn't apply much pressure. When they got the equaliser I thought they might go on and try to nick another one. But we got the break; when we went 2-1 ahead we tied down on everything, brought on Byron Webster and cleaned up everything and got the win.

"Now we have to take that confidence into our match with Doncaster and try to continue our improved form."
