Maybe we are starting to change back to a club that is very strong at home and not as good on the road.

The next few weeks will test that theory as we have alternating home and away matches. At The Den on Saturdays and on the road for Tuesday nights.

As good as we were against Colchester on Saturday, November 21, we were equally awful at Fleetwood on Tuesday, November 23.

In difficult conditions at the Highbury Stadium we could not string two passes together and were well beaten.

We deserved to be too despite facing a side that will most likely be fighting it out at the bottom of the table come the closing stages of the season.

That match showed how much work we need to do to be challenging for promotion from League One.

In the previous match we did turn over Colchester fairly comfortably, 4-1.

But for a time we let them back into the match by conceding a sloppy goal that, despite our dominant performance, threatened to undo our good work.

Our attacking play is causing opposition teams real problems, especially at The Den.

Steve Morison and Lee Gregory caused the Essex side a great deal of hurt and Aiden O’Brien had his moments too.

But his fellow winger Shane Ferguson stole the show with a brace. He is fast turning into a player we would like to keep at the club permanently.

Last week the bad news came out that skipper Tony Craig will be out for most of the season after having surgery to repair both ligaments and muscles. Craig will be on crutches and a brace for six weeks at least.

Missing a player of his experience will have an impact; we just have to hope it will not be too great, especially on our home form.

On Saturday, November 28, we face a tough test as Bury take us on at The Den.

They have been in decent form this season so the match will be a good test for the Lions .

The following Tuesday night’s away trip to Burton Albion will be equally tough as the matches come thick and fast.

Away from the first team action, Millwall supporter Sean McCarthy recently raised a huge figure of £65,637.35 for the Royal British Legion, which is his highest ever amount raised.

Big-hearted Lions fan Sean takes annual leave every year to raise money for the Royal British Legion and sells poppies and badges at Cannon Street Station.

This year he also raised cash for the charity at Millwall’s FA Cup match with AFC Fylde.
