STEVE Lomas insists Millwall will not take under-performing Bolton lightly.

Having drawn against QPR, Reading and Burnley since the last international break, the Lions travel north looking to crown recent good performances with a much-needed win.

Wanderers are below Millwall in the league table but are unbeaten in their last six games and Lomas is expecting a tough test at the Reebok Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

“I’m a big believer that if you put in the performances, results will look after themselves – you won’t always win, but that is generally what happens,” he said. “Our last three performances have been good but we’re going to have to go again.

“Bolton are going to be tough. They have spent a lot of money and their wage bill is astronomical for this level. They’ve got good strikers in Jermaine Beckford and David Ngog, who have both played in the Premier League, the lad Chung-Yong Lee is a good player and Kevin McNaughton went up with Cardiff last year, so we know it’s not going to be easy.

“They have got good players – there’s no two ways about it – and they are probably in a false league position in terms of where they really should be with that group of players.”
