Steve Lomas: The new Millwall boss wants the fans to back him

The Northern Irishman took over the reins last week after Kenny Jackett resigned at the end of last season after five and a half years at the club.

And now the former St Johnstone boss is hoping to get the Championship club playing an attacking style of football, with the aim of getting the home fans on board.

He told the Sunday People: "It's a good fit. Maybe some of the Millwall fans won't think so.

"I know they are all about pride and passion. It's a proper club with proper supporters. They stick by their team through thick and thin.

"I want to bring all of those qualities together and put a lot of good football in there, too. I want us to be an attacking side that the supporters can be proud of.

"I want The Den to be bouncing, I want the hostility. I know as an away player that you go there, take a look around and some of the team don't fancy it."

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
