Manager Ian Holloway has called on the Millwall team to show an instant response following on from last night’s three one loss to Sheffield Wednesday.

Three second half goals from the visitors to The Den consigned us to another defeat and Diego Fabbrini’s late, late effort was merely a consolation.

Speaking to the official site following the game and the very disappointing result, Holloway was clear in what we needed to do and that was ‘bounce straight back’ against Rotherham this Saturday.

‘Every time we let in a goal here it instantly feels like doom and gloom. Well we have to be better than that for our supporters. At the end of the day you make your own luck in football. People stopped doing the right things after they scored, and their second goal came far too quickly after the first. We didn’t respond well to the change of shape and I will hold my hands up for that.’

Holloway goes on to say that as he’s explained before, in his eyes we look a ‘very good’ side when we get our noses in front – it lifts us, we get confidence and we look like we will extend that lead and kick on – even when we don’t, but when we go behind it really is a case of game over in effect, especially on home soil as at least away we’ve come back from that a few times – albeit not for a while.

‘We have had two or three really good chances but couldn’t get that all important first goal, which can be so key in the Championship. We have to bounce straight back at Rotherham on Saturday. Our away form has been good so we have to continue that.’
