Millwall keeper Archer targets successful September after Peterborough win

Young stopper Jordan looking to build on first home victory of 2015/16

Jordan Archer says he and his Millwall team-mates have to build on Tuesday's win over Peterborough United by having a positive run of results in September.

The month of August began perfectly with a win over Shrewsbury Town on the opening day of the season but The Lions then hit a bit of a sticky patch with three frustrating home defeats.

But Tuesday's Johnstone's Paint Trophy victory saw Millwall keep their second clean sheet inside three matches following the earlier 0-0 draw away to Scunthorpe United and keeper Archer, who has impressed since being handed an opportunity in goal, believes victory over Peterborough could be the start of an upturn in fortunes over the next few weeks.

"The boys dug in deep and when he (Shaun Williams) scored that goal you could see how much it meant to us," he said.

"It was a tough August, but like the gaffer has said to us, we've got to put that month behind us. 

"We're now into September and we've started off well with a win and a clean sheet and we have got to build on that. I'm pretty certain September will be a lot better than August."

Archer once again pulled off some eye-catching saves against The Posh but says he still has plenty of room for improvement - especially when it comes to his communication.

"I'm still young and I'm learning a lot," the 22-year-old added.

"Fordey has been good to learn from because he is very vocal so it is something that I am adding to my game.

"If I see something on the pitch I'm not afraid to tell anyone and that is part and parcel of my job."
