I’M writing before the crucial Burnley match where I would have taken a point had we not gifted Barnsley three the week before!

It was deflating and demoralising and another performance where our opponents seemed to have a greater desire for the win. Unfortunately the opposition doesn’t get any easier, and comes in the form of play-off contenders Millwall. The Den is probably the last place you want to go if you want your first win away since November.

Hostile and intimidating are words that spring to mind. We have overcome that in the past and produced a tremendous 3-0 victory nearly three years ago to the day, when we were flying high in League One. Rovers need a fully fit squad that’s firing on all cylinders if we are to avoid getting dragged into a relegation scrap though.

Millwall 2 Rovers 1
