The FA Cup dream of a plum tie against Chelsea is over following the comprehensive four nil victory by Bradford City last night.

With our FA Cup third round tie at The Den ending in a three all draw, a four nil loss was probably the furthest thing from anybodies minds, but that’s how the game ended at Valley Parade and it wasn’t an evening anybody enjoyed.

Speaking to the official site following the match manager Ian Holloway had no alternative but to apologise to the fans following our disastrous showing.

Calling it ’embarrassing’ he explained.

‘First and foremost I need to apologise to the supporters who had to witness that. It was a completely unacceptable performance and the lack of confidence in the group at the moment really showed when they got in front almost straight away after the sending off.’

Holloway went on to say that for him he felt Bradford clearly wanted it more than we did on the night and for him that can never be right with a Millwall team.

‘A Millwall team should have passion and fight, but those attributes just weren’t there for us. There should be an enormous amount of pride when you pull that shirt on. But we capitulated and I can only apologise to the supporters, who deserve so much better.’

Holloway ends by saying that there’s no hiding the amount of work that needs to be done because we don’t look like a Millwall side should, and some would argue we don’t look like a side full stop lately.

‘The fans deserve a reaction because that was embarrassing for us.’
