Gary Rowett reckons his Millwall side might need “to take some risks” in tomorrow night’s Championship fixture at Nottingham Forest.
The Lions are still in the play-off hunt but need to cut the gap to sixth-placed Preston North End, which currently stands at five points.
“Forest are a really good side – Sabri Lamouchi has done a tremendous job to get them up there and challenging,” said Rowett.
“They have got a really nice balance. They have got lots and lots of forward options and we know all about the likes of [Joe] Lolley and [Lewis] Grabban, and the quality they bring to the table.
“But they have also got a really strong defensive structure. When I’ve watched them they are a really good counter-attacking side and that’s something we have to be aware of.
“We need to get the balance right, but at the same time it is really difficult because we’re going there needing to win, just as much as they do. With the situation in that is the gamble. We almost need to gamble every game – we might have to take some risks.”
