A WORD FROM BOTH CAMPS:
Luke Williams, Swindon Town Head Coach: “Millwall are going to run the hard miles and you get less time on the ball because they are always willing to press you.
“They always try to start games very brightly and impose themselves on you and we need to be ready for that.
“We’ve had a hard time against Millwall in the last couple of seasons. The opening stages of the game tomorrow will be very important.
“I do believe that we have enough in the building to get us out of trouble.”
Neil Harris, Millwall Manager: “What we’ve now got is a massive game on Saturday at Swindon – our biggest game of the season.
“Sixteen unbeaten is a great record, but we can’t think we can roll into Swindon on Saturday and get a result.
“We have to get that balance between a good, solid team that gets a clean sheet, but also have the attacking purpose to be able to score goals.”
