Steve Lomas has called on Millwall’s fans to get behind the team and make their home ground an intimidating place for visiting sides.
The Northern Irish manager joined Millwall from St Johnstone after former boss Kenny Jackett resigned and subsequently moved to Wolves.
And Lomas has expressed his intention to get the Championship club playing attacking football immediately, and hopes the supporters at The Den will enjoy the new lease of life he wants to give their side.
“It’s a good fit. Maybe some of the Millwall fans won’t think so,” he told the Sunday People.
“I know they are all about pride and passion. It’s a proper club with proper supporters. They stick by their team through thick and thin.
“I want to bring all of those qualities together and put a lot of good football in there, too. I want us to be an attacking side that the supporters can be proud of.
“I want The Den to be bouncing, I want the hostility. I know as an away player that you go there, take a look around and some of the teams don’t fancy it.”
Lomas joins Millwall after a couple of years with St Johnstone in which he helped the team to successive top-six finishes in the Scottish Premier League.
