Webster predicts more "twists and turns" in push for promotion

5 April 2017

Defender expects race to the play-offs to go down to the wire

Sheffield United and Bolton may have pulled clear in the race for automatic promotion but the make-up of the chasing pack is anything but settled.

Just three points separate Fleetwood in third position and Millwall in seventh, meaning points are at a premium with just a handful of matches remaining to squeeze into the Play-Off places.

"I can guarantee that there will be more twists and turns before the end of the season," Byron Webster told

"It's so tight at the top of the table but we just have to focus on ourselves and hope that other teams slip up and results go our way."

Webster was immense for Millwall on Tuesday night, opening the scoring at Greenhous Meadow with a composed half-volley that would impress any striker, before putting in a stoic defensive shift against a Shrewsbury side desperate to pull clear from the relegation dogfight.

"It's good to score, it's been a long time. The last time I scored a goal was on the first day of the season and the gaffer has been onto me since then, telling me to go and get another."

The 2-1 victory was the second win on the spin for The Lions and the defender says confidence is high ahead of Saturday's anticipated trip to Gillingham.

"It's a big one for us because we are treating all of our remaining matches like Cup finals.  

"We had a slump in results recently but there was no real concern with the lads, we were always confident that we would turn our form around and get back into the mix. 

"Now we have had a couple of wins on the spin it's about building on that and climbing as high up the table as we can."
