Millwall "confident and excited" says Martin

Left-back Joe looks ahead to Bradford test

Joe Martin says that he and his Millwall team-mates are "confident and excited" ahead of the Sky Bet League One Play-Off Semi-Final against Bradford City.

The Lions travel to the Coral Windows Stadium on Sunday before playing the return leg at The Den on the following Friday having secured fourth place in the League with victory over Gillingham yesterday.

That result made it four wins on the bounce going into the Play-Offs and Martin is expecting a physical encounter with The Bantams.

"We're in great form at the minute and that can only help going into those two big games," he said.

"They (Bradford) are a little bit like us in a way, though we are slightly different. It's going to be a physical game, we know that, and they're going to make it really difficult for us, but if we show what we have been showing since Christmas then I'm sure we'll give them a good game.

"We're looking good. We have got a good strikeforce and we're a danger, so it looks positive.

"I'm looking forward to it (the Play-Offs). I've never really experienced it as a starter and we're all confident and excited."

Lee Gregory's 98th-minute winner sealed a dramatic victory at Priestfield on Sunday - a result which would have been particularly pleasing for Martin against his former club, though the left-back played that down afterwards.

"It was a hostile atmosphere and a tough game," Martin added.

"I was expecting a bit of stick and I got that, but at the end of the day we just wanted the three points and to finish as high up as we possibly could.

"I left the club (Gillingham) last year and they had done one on us at our place, and we've kind of returned the favour. I didn't really look at it like I'm getting my own back."
