Meredith: “We need to carry on our good form”

Defender looks ahead to crucial stage of the League season and reflects on West Brom success

8 April 2019

James Meredith has highlighted the importance of picking up further victories after picking up three points against West Bromwich Albion last weekend.

The 2-0 success maintains the one-point gap between Millwall and the Sky Bet Championship drop zone, ahead of another vital home fixture against Queens Park Rangers this Wednesday night.

“We need to carry on our good form and look to pick up another victory on Wednesday,” the defender told millwallfc.co.uk.

“It’s important to get a couple more wins, so that we can create a nice cushion.”

The clean sheet kept against the division’s second-highest goalscorers was pleasing for the left-back, who evaluates a job well done for The Lions.

“It was a good game and I thought we dominated most of the play.

“We worked very hard and the team played well, and there were also some very good individual performances.

“Ultimately, we managed to get the three points. The red card helped us see out the game as well – the fans were excited and it was a good, good win.”

Meredith explains the impact of Neil Harris’ team-talk at the half-time interval on Saturday, as the team showed attributes vital to steer clear of the danger area this season.

“The manager told us at half-time just to keep working hard.

“He gave us a few tactical pointers and told us to keep at it, stay professional and go and get the second goal, which is what we did.

“We had a bit of fortune with their missed penalty, but I thought we looked strong throughout – they’re a very good team, so I thought we did well to nullify their attack. All the lads were really proud to win the game.”

The Australian finally touches on his personal progress, having returned to Harris’ line-up in recent weeks.

“It can be difficult when you’re out of the team – but we have some top players, so the competition is good,” Meredith states.

“Murray Wallace and Shane Ferguson are great players, so you just have to stay professional and try and keep as fit as possible.

“You need to have the right attitude, and work your way back into the side.”
