Millwall’s poor away form will not be taken for granted by Swansea boss Steve Cooper who welcome the Lions to the Liberty Stadium on Saturday.

The South Bermondsey outfit have not won away from The Den in the league since March but the Swans manager reads little into the form guide when assessing Championship opponents.

Swansea took seven points from a possible nine before the international break and Cooper believes he’ll need his side to be on their metal for the challenge of a Millwall side buoyed by their late derby win over Charlton on November 9.

“You can’t look too much at a team’s form or take your own form for granted,” Cooper said.

“I genuinely feel it can mean nothing if you’re not prepared, so we won’t pay any attention to that and hopefully deliver the game plan we think can win us the game.

“You have to be ready every game you play.

“Look at our last game against Sheffield Wednesday, we played as good as we’ve all season and at 91 minutes we were 2-1 down.

“We scored a late equaliser but we walked off the field not too happy!”

New Manager Effect

Millwall have won two of the three games since Gary Rowett took the reins at The Den, and Cooper believes the resurgence and new lease of life under the new manager the players have received is something to be weary of.

“They’re a team having a go for him at the moment, and we’ll look to match that,” Cooper said of Millwall.

“With a new manager it’s always something to be mindful of.

“We experienced that against Barnsley when we played them in their first game after their managerial change.

“There’s also it being the first game after the international break.

“We’ve got something to prove to ourselves to play well after a break.

“We didn’t do too well in the Forest game (0-1), or the first half against Barnsley, that adds to the challenge.

“But we’ll look forward to the challenge.”
