"We're better than our League position" says Jordan Archer

Lions keeper confident of an upturn in fortunes following Fleetwood win

Jordan Archer insists that Millwall are 'far better' than the team's position suggests - and is backing The Lions to continue to move onwards and upwards up the League One table following Saturday's 2-1 victory against Fleetwood Town.

Striker Lee Gregory produced two clinical penalty finishes to secure a first home League win since 20th August against Sheffield United.

Keeper Archer produced a couple of excellent late stops against Fleetwood, who were pushing for a late equaliser having reduced the arrears with a strike from Ashley Hunter.

"It has been a pretty poor run and we've had a bit of bad luck in the last few games, minus the Northampton match," said Jordan.

"We are much better then our League position and most people tipped us to go up. There is still a long way to go. We haven't been side-tracked by our position in the table, and we're only a few points off where we were at this stage last season."

Whilst Archer played an important part in Saturday's win, so too did team-mate Gregory, whose two goals did the damage at the other end.

"He takes a few penalties in training, and he scores most of them," added Jordan. "He is very composed. 

"I probably know which way he is going to go, but he does change it up like he did against Fleetwood when he went both ways. He is a top striker."
