"The best group I've ever been involved with," says Woods

Hear from the loanee...

There is strictly no Play-Off talk in Millwall's dressing room, according to Lions loanee Ryan Woods.

The midfielder, who joined the club on loan from Stoke City in the January transfer window, has become an integral part of a Gary Rowett side which has steadily made its way up the Sky Bet Championship table - and now sits just one place and two points off the top six with two matches remaining.

Speaking to, the 26-year-old, who has played for a number of clubs including Shrewsbury Town, Brentford and his current parent side, explained how the chemistry in the current Lions squad is second to none.

"We get fined if we talk about [the Play-Offs]!" Woods said. "We're all a really great bunch of lads and we've got chemistry which is unbelieveable. We're going to see how far that takes us. We've got another important game [on Saturday] and we'll assess the situation after that. Hopefully we're still in with a chance come the last game against Huddersfield.

"They're the best group I've ever been involved with. It goes a long way - you've only got to look at Sheffield United, or more recently, Wycombe. They've great bonds and chemistry within the group."

Next up for Millwall is the penultimate game of the campaign at Queens Park Rangers on Saturday, and Woods wants his team to "impose" themselves at the Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium, as well as show a bit more ruthlessness in their attacking play.

The Lions' last three victories have all come by the scoreline of 1-0.

"QPR's season has petered out a little bit, but it's about ourselves and what we do. If we go there and impose ourselves and hopefully score an early goal, as well as scoring more than one - I think that's what we've struggled with, not finishing a game off - hopefully we can continue how brilliant we've been in recent weeks."
