Premier League still the 'dream'

DAVID FORDE hopes it's not too late to aim for a crack at the English Premier League before his career ends.

The 33-year-old has of course played in the top-flight in Ireland and Wales but his time in England has been spent in the lower leagues. But with his status as Ireland's No.1 keeper intact, Forde hopes that elevation to the top-flight in England could still come.

"I set goals and I have dreams as well, and one of those dreams and ambitions is to play in the Premier League and it would be nice to do that with Millwall," says the former West Ham, Cardiff City and Derry player.

"I have a year left on my contract with Millwall, we are currently without a manager and there's been nothing said so I am just looking to get back to pre-season and see where that takes me.

"But first of all I have a job in hand here and that's the Faroes on Friday night.

"If we get a good win there it sets us up nicely for the rest of the campaign."
