Norris Looks Ahead To Millwall Test

24 March 2017

Luke Norris has urged his Town team-mates to stick together and keep fighting for survival in the final seven games of the season.

The Reds kick-off the final run-in against Millwall at The County Ground on Saturday (1:30pm Kick-Off) and Norris knows there is still time for his side to retain their League One status.

“There is still a lot of football to be played and we know we’ve got to win as many games as possible from our last seven,” he said.

“That’s it from now on and it is three points or it is not good enough – that’s the way we’ve got to look at it.

“I think we competed well against Sheffield United here, going 2-0 down and then getting back to 2-2.

“I thought they were beaten almost and it was only certain mistakes in the wrong areas that cost us and that is the way the season has gone.

“We can take some positives from it and Bradford last weekend was similar. It was almost the perfect away performance, we defended well for long periods of the game, got the goal to go 1-0 up and then we should really shut up shop but we conceded two quick goals and that has been the story of our season.

“It has happened far too often and it needs to improve but it is difficult to take knowing we are getting in good positions only to throw it all away.

“This season has been a big learning curve and there are positives to take from it but there are a lot of negatives as well and we’ve still got a chance.

“No one is giving up, we’ve still got seven games left to play and we’ve still got a chance of surviving.

“We’re all in it together and we all need to pull together and pull our weight together because every game is so crucial now.

“We all need to start performing better and that starts Saturday.”

Norris also gave his opinion on Millwall and the frontman admitted that his side will be in for a tough test tomorrow.

“We did very well against them on Boxing Day and I had a chance myself to put us 1-0 up and that would have changed the game,” he added.

“They are a very solid and very physical side but they can be beaten and they do concede goals as well so we’ve got a good chance of winning the game.

“They’ve got some good players and Steve Morison and Lee Gregory up top are a very good partnership in this league and they’ve shown that throughout this season.

“They know each other’s games very well, Morison is very strong and holds the ball up well and Gregory is always playing off the shoulder of the last defender and a lot of Millwall’s goals have come through those two.

“Keeping them quiet will be key if we want to win the game.”
