Manager Ian Holloway has said the only thing he was focused on last night was the tremendous fighting spirit shown by the players to get themselves back on level terms in the two all draw against Blackburn Rovers that saw us come from behind with a two goal deficit.

Making the comeback even more pleasing for the manager was the fact that we were down to ten men at the point as well following the sending off of on loan Andy Wilkinson.

The manager finished the game in the stands as well alongside assistant Marc Bircham.

Speaking to the official site following the match, a beaming Holloway explained.

‘What about my team? What about their recovery? The spirit was absolutely fantastic. I don’t really want to talk about the ending off, or anything other than the unbelievable character that my team showed to come back and get a draw. We have to stop conceding goals from set plays, and we will be working hard on that once again in training. The players will be getting bruises on their heads because they are going to be heading a lot of ball, but I’m delighted with the goals we scored.’

Holloway went on to say that after the Watford match he has talked about the need to get more shots in on target and he felt the players did that during the game and got the rewards of that.

‘I had a feeling we would score an equaliser because my boys have been fantastic. It was a great game of football overall.’

The gaffer ended his after match interview by saying that he always wants the fans to proud of the team and their efforts whatever the result might be, and he feels the fans would’ve felt like that at full time and he couldn’t credit them more for the noise and support they gave the team over the 90 minutes.

‘I love everything about this place and I hope the supporters enjoy coming to watch their team. Everything we are doing looks really good apart from those set plays. How proud am I that we could do that with 10 men? Yes, it was a draw, but it was as exciting a draw as you will ever see.’

Having said he didn’t want to talk about the red card incident, the manager did confirm though that Millwall would be appealing it.
