Frank Fielding is looking forward to being a home player at The Den this season – and readily admits Millwall’s stadium is “intimidating” for the opposition.
The experienced goalkeeper signed last week from Bristol City.
And Fielding – when asked if The Den is intimidating for visiting teams – told the South London Press: “Yeah, it is. Simple answer – yeah.
“I went on loan to Derby when I was 21 or 22 and it was about my fourth game here. It was intimidating and we got beaten.
“I did alright but I’ve never had a result here – I think 0-0 is the best it has been when I signed for Derby the season after. And I still ended up with stitches after the game.
“Big Darius Henderson elbowed me on a cross at the end. I was Terry Butcher [bandaged up] for 10 minutes.”
See Friday’s South London Press for a full interview with Fielding.
