Millwall defender Cummings eyes positive result against Chesterfield

21 January 2016

Right-back Shaun looks ahead to Saturday's away trip

Shaun Cummings says that last week's win over Port Vale will "mean nothing" unless Millwall can back it up with a positive result away to Chesterfield on Saturday.

Sunday's 3-1 success at The Den lifted The Lions to within a point of the Play-Off positions, and they could climb into the top six with victory against The Spireites providing that both Peterborough and Sheffield United fail to win their weekend games.

Cummings and his team-mates have 20 League One games left to play this season and the right-back believes Millwall are on the up as they seek a seventh away win of the campaign at the Proact Stadium this weekend.

"With the League we just need to keep our consistency going by picking up points and performing well," he said.

"As a team we are moving upwards and the performances we have been putting in lately have been decent.

"We are trying to be a hard team to break down and play against, while going forward we know we can score goals.

"We got a good win against Port Vale to put us within a point of the Play-Offs but that will mean nothing if we don't pick up a result at Chesterfield."

Cummings scored his first-ever goal for The Lions in somewhat fortuitous circumstances against Southend United last month, and the 26-year-old is looking to further his contribution in attacking areas.

"First and foremost, as a defender you want to keep clean sheets and make sure you are locked in at the back," he added.

"But going forward, which I've done since day dot in my career, it's always nice to get a couple of goals or assists and contribute up the field as well."
