The head coach, Thomas Chris­tiansen, ex­pects his play­ers to han­dle the pres­sure as they at­tempt to stay on top of the Cham­pi­onship at Mill­wall today. They have oc­cu­pied top spot in the sec­ond tier for longer than 24 hours for the first time since 1990 fol­low­ing their mid­week win against Birm­ing­ham City. “Right now we are the team to beat, of course,” the Dane said. “But we have to live with that if this is the po­si­tion we would like to main­tain, we have to get used to it. Some peo­ple grow with the pres­sure and this is what we ex­pect – that we can han­dle all these things.”
