The Blues have got another big game this weekend in terms of our survival hopes.

Last weekend against Villa was far from ideal but there`s still plenty to be optimistic about and that is something we need to focus on.

The players have shown a real togetherness and understanding in recent weeks and if we can get back to that against the Lions we should be able to get three points.

They are awful away from home, too, so with that in mind and if we get these three things right, we should be back to winning ways this weekend?

Be patient

As I`ve mentioned, Millwall`s away form is not good and so they`re more than likely going to sit in and try and make things frustrating for us.

With that in mind, we need to be patient in this one and take our time trying to break them down. With some of our attacking players showing better form of late we should be able to unlock things eventually, and so not getting worked up is the key in this one.

Keep the ball on the deck

If we go aerial more often than not, Neil Harris` men are going to be able to deal with that.

They`re very good at old-school type defending and so we need to be a bit smarter than that. We`ve got the players to get the ball on the floor and zip it about so that`s what we need to do.
Gradually we`ll wear them down and get the goals for victory.

Keep calm

The defeat against Villa was obviously frustrating last weekend and some of the players let their tempers boil over.

With that in mind, then, we need to be cooler when the pressure is on and instead react in the right way when the Lions look to frustrate.

If we can remain calm and respond in the right way there`s no reason why we can`t get our good recent run of form back on track.

Agree? Disagree? What three things do you think we need to do?
