Millwall boss Gary Rowett makes Fulham and Bournemouth comment



Millwall boss Gary Rowett has suggested to News at Den that his side have been no worse than the likes of Fulham and Bournemouth recently. 

The Lions are currently on a run of no wins in their last four Sky Bet Championship games, with that cluster of results coming off the back of the club being in their best position after 20 games since their return to the second tier in the 2017/18 season.

Millwall’s defeat to Hull City last weekend was only their fifth of the current campaign and third in their last 16 games, highlighting the good work that has been done by Rowett, his staff and his players so far this term.

Now the Lions boss has highlighted one particular statistic in response to suggestions that there could be some panic after their recent winless run:

“No, not really because you can flip a statistic any way you want.

“In the last 15 games only Fulham and Bournemouth have had more points than us.

“So I don’t think we’re in a bad position. We’ve drawn games, we should have beaten Bournemouth in the week, it was a good performance.”

What year was Matt Smith born?

Millwall currently occupy 10th place heading into the next round of fixtures and continue to be talked about as potential darkhorses for a play-off spot this season.

Up next for Rowett’s men is a home game against Birmingham City on Saturday as the Blues visit the Den.

The Verdict 

It is certainly a great way to assess their current situation and you can tell that Rowett is very pleased with the performances that his side has put in so far.

The real worry for them is scoring goals regularly as sometimes they only pick up results by narrow margins.

Getting a couple of players to be scoring week in week out will certainly help their cause if they want to finish in the top six and once again Jed Wallace will inevitably be key.

At present things are looking good for the Lions despite their recent results and they will be confident of turning things round.
