Tim Sherwood relished Saturday&rsquo&#59;s battle at Millwall &mdash&#59; even though it came at a cost to him. <P class=MsoNormal>We took our pre-season record to seven wins in seven as the tackles went flying in at the New Den. Goals from Sergei Rebrov and Les Ferdinand secured the 2-1 victory.<P class=MsoNormal>&ldquo&#59;It was a battle,&rdquo&#59; reflected midfielder Tim. &ldquo&#59;Millwall are a little bit fitter than us&nbsp&#59;- they start their league season next week. At times we were in a different league and later on they did themselves some credit.<P class=MsoNormal>&ldquo&#59;But I don&rsquo&#59;t think it&rsquo&#59;s a bad thing to have a game like that because it is realistic.<P class=MsoNormal>&ldquo&#59;The only thing is that sometimes you can pick up injuries. I&rsquo&#59;ve got a knock on my ankle and I might be struggling for next week.&rdquo&#59;<P class=MsoNormal>Tim has been impressed with our pre-season so far, particularly our forward play.<P class=MsoNormal>&ldquo&#59;We&rsquo&#59;ve seen some nice stuff going forward,&rdquo&#59; he added. &ldquo&#59;There is still a couple of weeks to go but we&rsquo&#59;ll be all right.<P class=MsoNormal>&ldquo&#59;We&rsquo&#59;re happy with how it&rsquo&#59;s going though, especially as we&rsquo&#59;ve been playing with different teams. The squad looks a lot stronger than it did last year.<P class=MsoNormal>&ldquo&#59;We&rsquo&#59;ve had good atmospheres and good games in the friendlies but we have to make sure the final preparation is done right, we get the injuries cleared up and we have a full selection of players for the first game.&rdquo&#59;<P class=MsoNormal>&nbsp&#59;<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" /><o:p></o:p>
