Not much between top and bottom clubs, says striker
Coventry City striker Lukas Jutkiewicz has told the club website that he is relishing the chance to play at Millwall's New Den tonight.
The 22 year old striker has never played at the ground before, he missed last season's clash through injury, but he is eager to experience the famous atmosphere and to put in another good performance and to add to his season's five goal tally, which makes him the club's top scorer.
He is beginning to forge a useful partnership with new striker Cody McDonald and the more the pair play together, the better the partnership will be.
Speaking about Coventry's next game, the trip today to Millwall, Jutkiewicz told the Sky Blues Player: "I haven't played there before as last season I was out injured for the trip but I am looking forward to getting down there and experiencing it.
"I've heard a lot about it and it has a legendary status so it will be good for me and the team I think. I definitely relish that type of atmosphere as you want to play in front of these crowds. That's why you want to become a footballer.
"We don't think about teams based on their form. The league is so tight and there isn't very much between the top and the bottom of the table in terms of quality. Maybe with a few exceptions here and there so there will be strange results and we won't see this game any
Despite picking up a point at Doncaster last weekend City dropped a place to 22nd and are now in the relegation zone with just 12 points, but manager Andy Thorn has always insisted that his side's league position is a false one and they are really a good, mid table side.
Jutkiewicz is also eager to see his side add to their points total and to climb the table and said: "We need to keep ticking over and adding
points each game.
"We need to keep chipping away and improve our point's total. We have to be looking at catching the teams above us whilst also pulling away from the teams below us so it is important to take something from every game, starting with Millwall."
