Millwall chief executive Steve Kavanagh in awe of Lions promotion challenge

Millwall chief in awe of promotion challenge
Millwall chief executive Steve Kavanagh admits that he has been left pinching himself over the Lions' unexpected challenge for promotion from the Championship.

Millwall chief executive Steve Kavanagh has admitted to "pinching himself" over the club's unexpected challenge for promotion.

Neil Harris's side sit sixth in the Championship table with three games remaining and can take a giant step towards securing a playoff place when they host Fulham on Friday night.

Millwall have gone 17 games unbeaten in the league since losing 2-1 to Norwich City on New Year's Day, and Kavanagh admits that he can barely believe how well the Lions are doing.

"We're enjoying ourselves. The first target was to stay up, we achieved that and then we said 'let's see where we go to'," Kavanagh told Sky Sports News.

"It's game by game. Friday night, it is a fantastic game. If you said to me at the start of the season that this is what would be going on, I would have pinched myself. I wouldn't have believed you.

"We're there now, there is not a lot of pressure on us. We're just going to enjoy the night and then it's onto the next one. Let's see what happens."

Millwall were last in the top flight in the 1989-90 season.
