Webster: Millwall have the 'firepower' to launch a Play-Off charge

Defender discusses in-form strikers as The Lions target top six spot

Byron Webster believes that Millwall are well placed to launch an assault on the League One Play-Offs - and says that the club has the necessary 'firepower' to do so.

Sunday's 3-1 win over Port Vale at The Den lifted The Lions to within one point of sixth-placed Peterborough United, while Wigan Athletic, who are in fifth, are eight points ahead.

Lee Gregory's brace against The Valiants took his goal tally for the season to 13 and fellow forwards Steve Morison and Aiden O'Brien (both 10) are also now into double figures for the campaign.

And Webster, who has featured 27 times for The Lions so far in 2015/16, says that the club's in-form frontline could be key between now and the end of the season.

"We've got the players who can counter attack and pick teams off," the defender said.

"It makes our job a lot easier and when you can go into half-time at 3-0 up, like we did on Sunday, then you can be more relaxed.

"We're a confident group who believe in each other and we get along on and off the pitch, and there isn't many teams that have the same firepower that we do."

Next up for Webster and his team-mates is this Saturday's trip to Chesterfield before a return to The Den next week against bottom side Crewe Alexandra.

"If we can keep picking up results then we are going to be there or thereabouts," he added.

"We want to be around the Play-Offs and putting pressure on the teams above us, and it's all about who can handle that.

"We want to be playing for something come the end of the season and we will be working our hardest to ensure that happens."
