Millwall manager Neil Harris feels all the pressure is on Fulham ahead of this Wednesday’s derby at Craven Cottage.
The Lions are still undefeated this season and picked up their second Championship victory with a 1-0 success over Sheffield Wednesday today – despite playing more than 50 minutes down to 10 men.
Jed Wallace is set to be suspended after his red card against the Owls, unless Millwall appeal the dismissal.
Harris watched Fulham’s 2-1 win at Huddersfield Town on Friday night.
“Fulham are a top side,” he said. “I watched them last night and if you look at their team on paper – and bench – they are the best team in the league.
“If they don’t get top two it will be a travesty. We’ll be the underdog, not fancied – people will be writing us off.
“We’ll got and put in the best performance we can, try to perform on the night and hopefully get a little bit of Lady Luck.
“We’ll go and enjoy it. We’ve sold our allocation out – so the atmosphere on Wednesday will be like today, Preston and West Brom.”
