Neil refocuses on Millwall after Blackburn defeat

Town midfielder Neil Danns is urging everyone connected with the Club to stay positive after tonight’s 1-0 npower Championship defeat at Blackburn Rovers.

The Terriers didn’t hit the heights of Saturday’s performance at Wolves against Rovers and Danns was disappointed at that.

“It was frustrating, because we know we are capable of better. There wasn’t much in the game, but one set piece has done us,” Neil told

“We’ve had a few half chances ourselves, but we’re disappointed after coming off the back of the good result at Wolves. We definitely didn’t work the ‘keeper enough as we didn’t create enough, although I don’t think we were terribly bad. Blackburn didn’t create a lot either, but eventually that one set piece has won them the game.”

Despite the result at Ewood Park the league table is still closely bunched with three games to go for the majority of teams.

Neil continued: “If we had won tonight it would have been ideal, but it wouldn’t have made us safe. All the teams at the bottom are fighting it out and getting results against the top teams – I’ve seen Wolves have beaten Hull tonight. We just have to keep fighting and believing. I think out of everyone’s fixtures, we probably have the most favourable last three games so hopefully we can go into them and get three points. 

“We are as capable as any other team around us of getting the points in the next three games. It’s not an ideal situation to be in, but it’s the reality and we have to keep believing going into the next three games. We must try and stay positive.”

Town are back in action on Saturday when Millwall visit West Yorkshire and Neil’s focus has immediately turned to that game.

“Our next game is at home to Millwall and in my time at the Club we’ve not lost many at home. Hopefully that can continue on Saturday. Millwall aren’t out of danger themselves and hopefully we can drag them into it as we try to claw our way back up the table. 

“The way things are shaping up it looks like it will go to the final game of the season, but we don’t really want it to. Saturday is a massive game and if we can win that, we will be set to go to Bristol. Every game is now a ‘must win’ for the teams down there.”
