Craig: Forget pain of Leeds defeat – bring on Cardiff

MILLWALL defender Tony Craig is keen to put the pain of losing to Leeds last Saturday behind him and focus on what he describes as a ‘seven-game season’.

The Lions travel to Wales this weekend on the back of a gut-wrenching defeat to The Whites but the 26-year-old insists there will be no hangover from that result.

“It hurt losing against Leeds – it hurt for us and we know it hurt for the fans as well, but it is a game we need to forget about,” Craig told the club’s official website.

“We have to take every game as it comes. We see it as a seven-game season that starts at Cardiff on Saturday and hopefully we can get the three points.

“It will be the same sort of atmosphere as the Leeds game. Hopefully we will take a good support down there, which we do at every away game.

“It will be a good game and it is one we are all looking forward to and relishing – bring it on.

“There is no doubt that every player knows what is in hand now, we have got to win as many games as possible and get as many points as we can.”
