Lions looking to take home comforts on the road, says Barrett

Millwall travel to Rotherham...

18 September 2020

Millwall's assistant boss Adam Barrett has claimed his side have to make sure they deal with what Rotherham United will throw at them on Saturday afternoon.

The Lions, fresh from Tuesday night's 3-1 Carabao Cup Second Round victory over Cheltenham Town, get their away 2020/21 Sky Bet Championship campaign against The Millers this weekend - and Barrett explained how a "big" and "physical" Rotherham outfit will need taming in a bid to claim all three points.

Paul Warne's side were relegated from The Championship in 2018/19, but bounced straight back up in 2019/20 on a points-per-game method.

"We know what to expect from Rotherham - they're a big, physical and strong side who did ever so well to bounce back up last season," the assistant boss told

"The year before last they gave us two difficult and tough games, so we know what to expect. They had a good start to the season in defeating Wycombe, so they'll be looking to get off and running at home.

"But, we've had a good start, with two wins in the Cup and a draw [at The Den], and we'll be looking to take that confidence into the weekend. We know what's coming, and we've got to make sure we deal with it. After that, it's about having that bit more quality to break them down."
