Rowett looks ahead to Latics test

The boss has his say...

21 February 2020

Millwall manager Gary Rowett insists feet must remain firmly on the ground ahead of a tough trip to Wigan Athletic on Saturday afternoon.

The Latics sit in the relegation zone, three points from safety, but despite this Rowett isn't underestimating the dangers Paul Cook's side possess.

Millwall travel to the DW Stadium in hope of picking up another win on the road, and building on last week's brilliant 1-0 away victory over promotion chasing Preston North End.

Despite the buzz around last Saturday's three points at Deepdale, the gaffer has a simple message for the players ahead of what promises to be yet another tough Championship battle.

Speaking to millwallfc.co.uk, Rowett said: "Yes we've played well against Fulham and we've played well to win the game against Preston, but that doesn't mean to say that now suddenly we've got to try and be something we're not.

"We've still got to have that humility. We saw earlier in the season when they came to The Den how tough the game was and we were probably quite fortunate to get a point out the game.

"It was a poor performance from us but a very strong one from them. I've played against (Paul) Cook loads of times before, managed teams against his teams, and I don't think I've ever had an easy game.

"Whilst their results might not have been as good as they would like, their performances have been pretty good and they've been in every game. There's been very few games where they've been beaten comfortably by the opposition."
