Fan's Roar: Trouble ahead for Millwall
By Ian Toal of Millwall Supporters Club
Make no mistake about it, we are deep in trouble.
After slipping to a poor 2-0 home defeat to relegation threatened Wolves, our supporters are questioning where the three wins we probably require to guarantee our Championship position are going to come from.
What made it even worse is that we made a poor Wolves team look good.
Our kick and hope tactics are not working and we make too many mistakes in games thus meaning we are conceding too many goals to pick up points.
With our most in-form player James Henry out injured, from a disgusting challenge in the Leeds away match last Saturday, we are going to struggle to create and finish the chances we need to win games.
Rumours are about that he is going to be out for the rest of the season which is a huge blow.
To make things even worse two further forwards were forced off prematurely in the Wolves defeat with Benik Afobe and John Marquis both succumbing to injury.
Loanee veteran striker Rob Hulse is out as well with the flu and a possible stomach injury, so suddenly our striking options are drying up.
With this terrible run of form and spate of injuries we need the rest of the squad to step forward and be counted.
The teams we are putting out look more than good enough on paper to get results in the division but football is not played on paper and just too many of our players are currently off form.
We need to foremost tighten up at the back before we look to improve our offensive approach.
It's been really disappointing in that we failed to build on our away win at The Riverside by slumping to back-to-back defeats.
The 1-0 away defeat to Leeds United was a bit unluckier than the Wolves defeat though.
We survived one penalty kick at Elland Road as keeper David Forde saved from Ross McCormack but he could not do the same for Stephen Warnock's spot-kick.
We should have had a penalty ourselves with a blatant handball from Leeds United's Sam Byram but unfortunately it was not awarded.
This Sunday's FA Cup Quarter Final against Blackburn gives us the opportunity to put our league worries to one side as we look to both earn some important money for the club and to provide our supporters with another great day out at Wembley.
We're going to have to play a lot better than we did on Tuesday against Wolves though if we want to make it through to the semi-final.
These opportunities do not come round regularly for a Championship club, so we need to give everything to try and get the positive result that the club needs.
