Harlee Dean warned his Brentford team-mates they must not get sucked into a battle with Millwall when the two sides meet on Saturday.
The Lions parted company with Ian Holloway two weeks ago with club legend Neil Harris taking charge until the end of the season.
Millwall are renowned for 'in your face' football as they look to make life horrible for the oppostion, something that was lacking under Holloway.
And Dean is aware that Brentford must focus on their football instead of going toe to toe with the relegation battlers.
He said: “We've got to make it a football match and not a fight as that's what we're best at. I'm sure it will be intense for the first 20-30 minutes. Once we get on the ball we'll put our stamp on the game instead.”
Brentford are aware of what a wounded Lions side can do as they came back from 2-0 down to level at 2-2 before Dean forced Danny Shittu into an own goal that turned out to be the winner.
On that day he added: “We felt we were in the driving seat and they came back. The fans played a big part for them that day.
“We're at home and they've got to come to us. Our fans are just as intimidating and just as loud. They'll try and do the same to us and get a result.”
