Revenge on skipper's mind ahead of Peterborough's trip to The Den

It's more than six months since The Lions suffered their heaviest defeat of the season at the hands of the Posh, but captain Tony Craig admits the 5-1 humbling is still fresh in the minds of Millwall team-mates.

"It's an important game for us and a rematch we have been looking forward to," Craig told

"We certainly know their strengths and weaknesses and they will say the same about us.

"Our home record is very good and we hope that the fans will get behind us as we look to get back into the top six."

The Lions were held to a goalless draw at a rain-soaked Oldham on Saturday, but the skipper believes the result will be "valuable" as the club looks to keep touch with the play-off places.

"It was a valuable point, especially looking back at the conditions we had to play in. We couldn't play as fluently as we would have liked but it will be a good point at the end of the day."

Goalkeeper Tom King again drew praise for an impressive display between the sticks, keeping a second consecutive clean sheet since replacing the injured Jordan Archer. 

"He's a very good, young keeper and he has a bright future ahead of him. He has pulled off some great saves and is settling in really well," Craig added.

"We start defending from the front and we have a great team that knows the importance of doing the little things right. We are getting clean sheets but unfortunately we haven't been scoring either, hopefully that will change on Tuesday night."
