SHELL-shocked Millwall are determined to end their away-day-blues at Sheffield United's expense tomorrow afternoon.
The Lions, still smarting from their 4-0 hammering at Manchester City in midweek, have picked up only one point out
of 12 on their travels this season.
We had more strikes on goal than City, but the difference was that they made theirs count and we didn't."
Tony Cascarino, Teddy Sheringham and George Lawrence certainly look capable of unsettling most Second Division
defences once they have had time to develop more of an understanding upfront.
"We have got to start tucking our chances away, especially away from home," conceded manager John Docherty after
Wednesday's shattering defeat.
"If we can improve our form away from home we have got to be in with a great chance, because I can't see
many people beating us at the Den," stressed Cascarino.
Millwall's £220,000 summer buy from Gillingham has only scored one in eight League and Cup appearances
for the Lions, but he explained: "If I am going to score regularly I really need a good supply of crosses and that hasn't happened yet.
"Its something that we have been working on in training, and hopefully now that Kevin O'Callaghan is fit again it will
start to pay off."
Steve Wood, sidelined for the last two games with a hamstring injury, looks like being called up against Sheffield,
as Docherty tries to cut-out the defensive hesitancy which cost them so dearly at Maine Road.
If Wood does make it, it will be the first time that the Millwall manager has been able to name all four new recruits
in the same team.
