Tommy Lee says Chesterfield are eyeing three points at Millwall on his first trip to the Lions’ Den.

The Spireites stopper believes a midweek break will help the flurry of recent signings absorb the management’s messages further.

Liam O’Neil was the latest to join Dean Saunders at the Proact from West Bromwich Albion, following the arrivals of Lee Novak and Angel Martinez.

Chesterfield have not recorded a win at Millwall since 1981 and Lee says Saturday’s clash with the side recently relegated from the Championship will be a big game.

Lee said: “I haven’t played there before but it is another big game, they have recently been relegated, we’ll go down there and try and get the win like we always do.”

And added: “I’m sure Mal Purchase (fitness coach) and the gaffer will have something lined up for us (this week).

“The gaffer will like having us on the training pitch, learning the way he wants to play, but it’s still early days, we have only been under him for two or three months so we’re going to get better.

“The gaffer said after the Rochdale game that they have been a team together for two and a half years and you can see they’re organised. They’ve got a game plan where they can play short or go long and that’s what we need to strive to try and achieve.

“We have some very good players as well, so once we can get that organisation into the team the talented players that we do have will be able to flourish.”
