Manager Ian Holloway has declared himself a happy and proud man following Millwall’s dramatic comeback against Wolverhampton Wanderers yesterday.

Goals from Lee Gregory and a brace from Ricardo Fuller clawed a point from the game that we were losing three nil until the final 25 minutes of the 90.

Holding on for a share of those points with Shaun Williams being sent off in the dying seconds just topped the day off the gaffer and he told the official site.

‘The spirit the players showed is ingrained in this club’s mentality. I’m so proud of the club. What we’ve done yesterday with the special kit launch and then that comeback – it is what this club is all about. All that plus the golf day on Wednesday, which was brilliant, has made it a great week and I’m delighted.’

Holloway went on to say that the game was probably ‘the most exciting’ match he’s been involved in.

‘It was fantastic, the tempo at times is phenomenal and we saw that. We can’t defend like that but every player, at 3-0 down, gave the fans exactly what they expect from them. How many teams would come back from 3-0 down against a side like Wolves? It was a great recovery from us.’

The gaffer goes on to credit our three goals as well and he was delighted for Gregory and says given the other chance he had he has no idea how he didn’t score that one either, so he’s hoping it’s a sign of more regular strikes to come from our summer signing.

Praising the introduction of Fuller from the bench, Holloway also admitted that given he’s a different type of striker we are still figuring out how to best use his strengths but he knows that will come, and of course grabbing a brace will do his confidence good as well.
