Manager Ian Holloway has said that he was pleased with our commitment and desire in the three all draw against Bradford City in the third round of the FA Cup today.

Millwall came from behind twice in the game, but Bradford were boosted by an unfortunate own goal from youngster Sid Nelson, but for the gaffer he felt we more than deserved a second bite at the cherry even though he knows we can certainly perform better than we did.

Speaking to the official site with Scott McDonald and Ricardo Fuller getting us the goals we needed to remain in the hat for now, Holloway explained.

‘I feel a little bit frustrated not to win because I think the lads did a lot of good things in the game. We did get a few things wrong and it seems that teams are punishing us for those mistakes at the moment. But we can keep working to improve those areas of our game. What pleased me was that the commitment and desire was there from te boys. That maybe hasn’t been the case in the last couple of weeks, and the players have been as disappointed as I have been with some of the performances and results.’

Holloway goes on to say that for today though, we kept going, we keep believing and we kept battling to get something out of the match and he obviously hopes that this will prove to be the turning point for us moving forward again now.

‘The team didn’t let their heads drop after going behind. We could’ve folded but fought our way back into things. We managed to get the ball into wide areas better than we have been and you could see how much we stretched Bradford in doing so. We got crosses into the box and scored goals.’

In saying that he admits defensively though there is clearly a lot more we can do as we conceded three goals and at home that shouldn’t be the case with the fans behind us.

‘At least we are still in the draw, and hopefully now we can go up there and get a result which would hopefully kick start things.’
