No 'let up' from Millwall at Gillingham, Webster insists

Defender previews Priestfield test

Byron Webster insists that there will be no 'let up' from Millwall in Sunday's League One game away to Gillingham.

The Lions have already booked their place in the Play-Offs following victory over Oldham Athletic last weekend but Webster and his team-mates will be determined to secure a fourth straight win to ensure they finish the season in as high a League position as possible.

And while the pressure is all on Gillingham, who need a win and for results elsewhere to go their way if they are to finish in the top six, Webster is adamant that he and his colleagues will be doing all they can to erase memories of the home defeat to Justin Edinburgh's side back in December.

"In the end, I think we were all a bit disappointed that we didn't go up automatically, but we won't be letting up on Sunday just because we're already in the Play-Offs," he said.

"The manager has reminded us that this game against Gillingham is a local derby and that we owe them a bit of pay-back after they beat us 3-0 at The Den just before Christmas.

"That hurt and we're determined to erase the memory of that game and go into the Play-Offs with momentum by continuing our good run of form."

Webster has been a key part of a solid defensive unit in recent months but the centre-back is keen to stress that it's a team effort.

"We have become much more difficult to break down in the last few months," he added.

"It's not just down to the back four and the keeper but the whole team. We know that we're always going to score goals so the way we are defensively at the moment always gives us a chance of winning."
