Millwall v Leeds United: Pre-match quotes

Through It All Together gathers the thoughts of both managers ahead of this highly contested tie.

Leeds head to The Den this weekend for a clash that is now well known as a fixture of huge fan rivalry.

Below are some quotes from both managers:

Neil Warnock:

"I think in football there is nothing you can't do, it wouldn't worry me who we are playing on Sunday

"We can go home or away and we can cause problems for other teams

"We have lost our physical players for this weekend, in Pearce, Brown and Rudy Austin. The whole core, spine of the side has been completely taken out of the team

"It will be interesting to see how the lads perform and we will give it a go. Last year I don't think many people thought we had much chance of beating Millwall

"The next four games are possibly against the four in form teams in the league and that's what makes football such a great game really

"I think we have the best group fans in the county at the moment in our current situation and they will be in full flow on Sunday

"Millwall, Palace, Leicester and a local derby against Huddersfield - they are all tough games. But what we need to try and do is make these tough games for the four clubs concerned there as well."

Millwall boss Kenny Jackett:

"I feel that all season we've created chances and have had the ability to score goals. What we've done of late is do better as a side defensively and the 'goals against' column has been better

"We've settled down the back four, which has helped. It's more consistent. The two centre-backs have been in place for quite a number of games and that has helped us. As a side, I'm pleased to say we've reduced the goals but still looked a threat going forward and being able to score."

The game will be televised on Sky Sports 1 this Sunday with the game kicking off at 13:15 PM. If you cannot watch the game live, updates of key events in the game will be included on the 'Team line-ups and updates' blog.
