Lomas admits Millwall need to move players on to get new faces in
MILLWALL boss Steve Lomas has admitted he will have to move players on before he can offer deals to any potential new targets.
Former Reading defender Nicky Shorey remains on the Lions' radar after hooking up with the club for pre-season training.
But budgets mean he and any other possible new signings will have to remain patient for a bit longer if they are to win contracts at The Den.
Lomas said: “Nicky is still in training with us.
“We’ve got to get a few out to get a few in, so that is going to be the main issue for us.
“There hasn’t really been any interest yet from other clubs in our players.
“If you’ve got to shift and a few out before you can get a few in, you are hoping it can be done sooner as opposed to later towards the end of the transfer window.”
Millwall are still without a goal or a point from two Championship games going into Saturday’s Den encounter with Huddersfield.
Lomas is challenging his side to be more ruthless when in control of games like they were at Ipswich for spells before falling behind, although he accepts the most important thing is not to lose.
The gaffer explained: “We are looking forward to Huddersfield,iIt will be a tough challenge because they played well against QPR last week so we will have to defend better than we did at Ipswich.
“It just seemed everything which could go wrong did go wrong.
“Obviously it goes without saying the first goal is very important and when you get your chances you’ve got to try and take them.
“We’ve probably suffered because of that in the last two games where we haven’t got our noses in front when we probably should have done.
“When you do get in front it changes the complexion of the game.
“The other conundrum is from the last two league games is that when we have been on top we’ve conceded, which is disappointing.
“In an ideal world we will get a couple of early goals on Saturday but if that doesn’t happen we’ve just got to keep our discipline and make sure we don’t concede.
“If we have to take a draw like we should have done against Yeovil then sometimes you’ve got to accept that, but for us it is very important when you get those opportunities you put them away.”
