Millwall target change of luck

Millwall skipper Paul Robinson is hoping Lady Luck smiles on the Lions tonight.

The south Londoners are 90 minutes from Wembley heading into the second leg of their League One play-off semi-final against Huddersfield Town.

Millwall were denied two decent penalty shouts during the goalless first leg at the Galpharm Stadium on Saturday, but with home advantage they will now be favourites to reach the final.

"It was a big away performance, Huddersfield have been very good at home," centre-back Robinson said.

"It was important the boys stayed strong. We put in a big Millwall away-day performance (0-0) and it's all to play for, it's all on one game at The Den.

"We didn't get that bit of luck on Saturday but hopefully with hard work and determination we'll get it tonight. What we need is another big Millwall night at The Den, to get the atmosphere going and make home advantage count."

Town captain Peter Clarke was at the centre of both penalty incidents, appearing to block Scott Barron's shot with his arm and later catching the same player in the area. The defender insists his side are still in the tie despite failing to take a lead to the capital. "We'll go down to their place well prepared and we are confident we can get the result required," he said.
