Lawrence Vigouroux is well aware of the task awaiting his side today but he’s confident that Town can upset the form book.
The Reds host promotion chasing Millwall at The County Ground later (1:30pm Kick-Off) with the Lions on a lengthy sixteen-game unbeaten run in the Sky Bet League One.
However, Vigouroux has every faith that Town can spring an upset and secure a much-needed victory.
“Millwall will be a good side, they are quite high in the division, they’ve got some good players and they had a good FA Cup run so it will be a tough game,” he told
“We’ve just got to keep doing what we’ve been told to do in training and hopefully it will bear fruit at the weekend.
“Any team that has got an unbeaten run as long as Millwall have in the league will be a good side but records are there to be broken and hopefully we can do that today.
“It will be a tough game, they will have quite a few fans who will make the trip and it will be a good atmosphere.
“Hopefully we can come away with the three points that we desperately need.
“We’ve just got to concentrate on us and we’ve got to do what we can do in order to get the points we need to move up the table.”
Vigouroux also outlined what he thinks his defence needs to do in order to keep Steve Morison and Lee Gregory quiet, with the dangerous duo having plundered 30 goals between them so far this season.
“The defence needs to be strong and Morison and Gregory upfront are arguably the best partnership in the league,” he continued.
“They will be tough as always and I’ve played against them three or four times now so I know what they are all about and hopefully the defence will as well.
“We need to stay strong at the back and nullify any threat that they’ve got, it is going to be difficult but it is possible and we can do it.”
Lawrence is looking forward to catching up with Millwall stopper Jordan Archer with the pair good friends from their days at Tottenham Hotspur.
“I know Jordan really well,” he added.
“We were at Tottenham together and he’s a very good goalkeeper and someone who I looked up to a little bit when I was younger because he was with the first-team quite a lot.
“I’ll have a chat with him before the game and wish him well but when we cross the white line I just want three points.”
Finally, Vigouroux has urged the Town faithful to keep believing and keep backing the team this afternoon with three points a must.
“They need to stick with us. I know the season hasn’t been great but they need to stick with us as much as they can because they can be our twelfth man, especially in games like this,” he said.
“We’re going to need their support as much as ever and hopefully we can get the three points together.”
