Millwall boss Rowett explains why he is only interested in looking up the table

BY ALEX GRACE
Gary Rowett is looking up rather than down as Millwall stretched their unbeaten run to four league games.
The Lions have taken 11 points out of 18 available since the former Burton, Birmingham, Derby and Stoke City manager took charge.
Rowett has lost just once since taking over at the Den outfit. Millwall are only five points outside the top six and 10 points above the bottom three. They are 13th  in the Championship table.
The Lions have proven before they have what it takes to mount a play-off challenge in the Championship, coming close to finishing in the top six in the 2017-18 season when Rowett was in charge of the Rams.
“I asked someone after the game: ‘How far are we are off the play-offs?”,” said Rowett.
“They said five points. The person then started telling me how far we are from the bottom three and I said: ‘I’m not really interested in that’.
“We’re looking up because we’re good side and we’ve got good players. We’re starting to see some of those players perform really, really well so often.”
