Millwall defender Beevers hopes set-piece success continues

Mark looking to add to goal tally

Mark Beevers believes that Millwall are reaping the rewards of extra set-piece work in training - and hopes that they can continue to trouble teams from corners and free-kicks.

The defender has netted three goals so far in 2015/16 - already his equal best season tally to date - and each one has come from a set-piece.

In total The Lions have scored six times from planned routines so far this campaign and Beevers, speaking in the matchday programme for Saturday's visit of Swindon, says that is as a result of their efforts at Calmont Road.

"Last season we struggled to find the net from set-pieces at all," he says.

"During pre-season the gaffer spoke a lot about how important creating and scoring from free-kicks and corners would be for us.

"It is something we work on quite a bit, and fortunately so far that is paying off."

Beevers and his team-mates will be looking to return to winning ways in the League when they host Swindon this weekend and the 25-year-old is confident that Millwall can go on a run of results over the next few weeks.

"If you look at the League table you can see how tight things are, and we know that if we can string a few wins together we can be right up there fighting for a position in the top six.

"Up until the last (League) match we had begun to show a lot more consistency and now after the international break we're aiming to get on another run.

"With no game last weekend we had more time to analyse things and work on the training ground, which we also did during the previous break and showed a real improvement as a result.

"The season still has a long, long way to go, and we genuinely believe that we will continue to improve as we go along."
