Championship - Forde calls for response

Millwall goalkeeper David Forde admits the pressure is on ahead of the Boxing Day trip to Watford.

The Lions are just four points and three places above the drop zone after back-to-back defeats to Bolton and Middlesbrough.

Goals from Emmanuel Ledesma and Albert Adomah secured a 2-0 win for Boro on Saturday and ended a run of seven home matches without defeat for Steve Lomas' side.

Forde said: "We're very disappointed, particularly after the home form we have had recently. We weren't at it and we weren't good enough.

"It's onto Watford now, a team we haven't had a good record against, so hopefully we can change that.

"It's a massive game because all of a sudden we've lost two on the bounce and we need to respond. The pressure is on for the Watford game."
