Pressley: We should be confident after recent performances

23 November 2015

Town put five past Swindon on Saturday afternoon

Steven Pressley wants his Fleetwood Town side to play with confidence when they entertain Millwall at Highbury on Tuesday evening.

The Lions are currently unbeaten in nine games in all competitions, and travel to the Fylde Coast having beaten Colchester United 4-1 at the weekend.

Town on the other hand also recorded a big win on Saturday, as they comfortably put five goals past Swindon on home soil.

And Pressley is hoping his side can replicate recent performances against Neil Harris’ outfit, but is wary of the threat the opposition carry.

He said: “One of the great things about football in England is that games come thick and fast. It’s difficult to enjoy too much because there’s always another game.

“It was a great feeling though after the game on Saturday as there were many good things in our performance, but Tuesday is an entirely different game now.

“We’ve had to refocus and concentrate on the next game which is Millwall. We’ve spent the last couple of days analysing them.

“Millwall don’t play the game as pure as Swindon do so the chance of pressurising the game so high becomes more difficult.

“So it presents a different type of game plan and a different type of strategy, and that’s what we’ve been looking at.

“The one thing we must do though if we are to get a result is to play with the same levels of energy and intensity.

“Millwall are showing a great deal of consistency and haven’t been defeated in their last nine games in all competitions.

“They’ve got the second best away record in the league and are the third highest scorers away from home.

“That shows the challenge that we face but I love these challenges and I want my players to relish them as well.

“They’re a really well organised side who are very experienced and play with confidence, but so should we after recent performances.”
