Millwall goalkeeper Bartosz Bialkowski spoke to the press today ahead of his side’s trip to Brentford tomorrow, and the Pole expects a tough game at Griffin Park.
Adam Barrett is the caretaker manager of Millwall after Neil Harris’ departure earlier this month.
His first game in charge saw the Lions beat Leeds United 2-1 at The Den and after a two week break for international fixtures, he’ll again be the man to take charge as they travel to Brentford tomorrow.
Speaking about the game tomorrow, Millwall keeper Bialkowski was full of admiration for Thomas Frank’s side, saying:
“Brentford have spent a lot of money and have signed players, and they’re a really good team which maybe they’re not showing as much at the moment.
“We have to stop them creating like we have done before, and hopefully we’ll be okay.
“We want to take the momentum from our last game and go and beat someone else, but it won’t be easy against a good Brentford side.”
Should Adam Barrett be given the Millwall job?
Brentford are 17th in the Championship after a difficult start to the campaign which has seen them win just three games from their opening 11.
Goals are a concern for Brentford too – they’ve only scored nine in the Championship this season, seven of them coming from Ollie Watkins.
They’ve been hard to beat at Griffin Park though, having not lost there since the opening day of the season.
Millwall’s unprecedented win against Leeds earlier this month will give them heaps of confidence for their London derby tomorrow.
Despite Brenford’s poor start, they’ll be tough opponents tomorrow and Millwall will have a task in keeping Watkins at bay.
A win would surely put Barrett in pole position to take the job permanently.
