The main talking points from Rowett’s Millwall press conference ahead of Nottingham Forest clash

Millwall are back on the road this evening in the Championship, as the Lions make the trip to the East Midlands to face Nottingham Forest at the City Ground.

The Lions have been on a poor run of form of late, and will be desperate to turn things around. Millwall have won just one of their last eight league games, accumulating seven points from a possible 24 on offer.

They come up against a Forest side who continue to be right in the mix at the top of the table, as they sit five points adrift of Leeds United.

However, the Reds have drawn three of their last four matches.

Ahead of the game, Lions boss Gary Rowett and first-team coach Adam Barrett spoke to the press, discussing a range of topics.

Rowett stated that he would like to see his team put in another disciplined performance away from home.

“If you think about some of the results we’ve had, not just the wins but some of the draws at really difficult places, we’ve gone to Sheffield Wednesday, Cardiff, Stoke and drawn. They’re hard places to go and get results,” the Millwall boss told the club’s official website.

He knows that Nottingham Forest will make it a difficult game at the City Ground, where Millwall have not tasted victory since 2015.

“We’ve had some big performances and results away from home and Forest is another one of those,” Rowett said.

“We know it will be a tough challenge, but it’s a challenge in which we’ll go there and give it everything we’ve got to try and win the game.”

Speaking to News at Den, first-team coach Adam Barrett also handed praise to the back line after the success of the 3-4-3 formation that Rowett has often chosen to use away from home.

“I’ve been delighted with the whole team, really, the back players obviously after going to three at the back. It has been slightly different and the wider [centre-backs] have had to step in with the ball a bit more,” he said.

“We’ve got good honest pros here, good honest lads and they’re working extremely hard to improve. They’ve taken on the challenge really well and adapted.”
