Millwall Lionesses boss Dan Mlinar says he is not surprised at his side's unbeaten start to the league season.

The Lionesses, who finished eighth in WSL 2 last season with 15 points from 18 games, currently lie fourth after their first three league matches of 2015.

After draws against London Bees and Everton, Mlinar's side fought back to beat Durham 3-2 on Sunday.

"The challenge now is putting together back-to-back wins," he told BBC Sport.

"We could have more points than we do, having conceded in the last minute against Everton.

"Between now and June, almost all our games are against teams that will be around us. The Everton game was a bit of a bonus. Our aim is to be top of that 'mini league' in June, and then we will re-assess."

Happy hunting ground for Lionesses
Millwall also beat Durham away last season, 4-1, in their only away league win of 2014. The Lionesses lost seven of their eight other away games last season.

Substitute Lily Agg was the Millwall match-winner on Sunday, scoring a brace despite having a hamstring problem before the match.

"I didn't think she would have 90 minute in her, but she could still have an impact," Mlinar added. "She proved me right."

Millwall continue their WSL 2 campaign away to Watford on Sunday, 19 April at Berkhamsted.
