Craig: "There is a determination to achieve our goals"

31 March 2017

Lions captain urges togetherness in the run-in...

Millwall captain Tony Craig has told of the great "spirit" and "determination" among the club's ranks as the Sky Bet League One run-in gathers pace.

With seven games remaining in the 2016/17 campaign, The Lions currently sit just outside the Play-Off spots in the League table. 

The club are winless in four League One matches, however, victory over fellow promotion rivals Scunthorpe United on Saturday afternoon could take Neil Harris' side level on points with 6th placed Southend United.

Craig insisted that whilst The Lions' season has hit a stumbling block, everyone is pulling in the right direction to ensure that goals are met.

"There is no doubt that this has become our biggest game of the season," said Craig.

"The last four results have been disappointing to say the least. We will analyse just what has changed, however, there are no excuses.

"Of late, both individually and collectively, our standards have dropped marginally, resulting in errors leading to goals conceded at one end and opportunities missed at the other.

"What we have had throughout the season, though, is a great spirit amongst the group and a determination to work together to achieve our goals.

"With seven games left, we are staring down the barrel in terms of our ambitions to reach the Play-Offs. On Saturday afternoon, we all need to be fully focused on getting back to winning ways here at The Den.

"Three points against one of our promotion rivals could just be the tonic we need and would put the pressure back on those teams just above us."

Don't forget that Saturday's visit of The Iron is our Prostate Cancer UK focus match. 

The charity will be holding bucket collections around the ground to raise funds and awareness for research.
