Gary Rowett has talked about the need for “patience” – both on the pitch and in the stands – when Millwall take on Swansea City tomorrow.
The Welsh side won 4-0 at Cardiff City on Saturday.
The Lions are looking to boost their Championship play-off prospects with back-to-back Den fixtures, with struggling Barnsley to follow this weekend.
And Millwall manager Rowett knows the quality that Swansea possess.
“They are a good side. When you watch them at their best…they are a very extreme side, as I’m sure Russell [Martin] would probably admit. I think that happens when you play such an adventurous style. They move the ball really well and are really fluid. They are very different to a lot of Championship clubs.
“When they click they are very, very good. You saw that with their first goal against Cardiff. It was a really, really top-quality goal.
“They give you problems in different ways. What we’ve got to do is play like we’re at home – get front foot and try and make the game difficult for them.
“While we are respectful of their style, and it gives you problems at certain times, we have to focus on making the game one where they have to deal with our style. They are coming to our home ground and our form has been very good there.
“What you have got to do is stop Swansea building a bit of rhythm to their game and moving the ball about. They are a technically very good side that make it difficult for you to get bits of possession in games and that, in turn, creates a little bit of frustration. At times in the game we might have to be patient and at times in the game we might need the fans to be patient. Because that is the type of game that Swansea want to try and create.
“They were certainly very impressive in their game at the weekend.”
