Manager Ian Holloway has praised yesterday evening’s match winner Alan Dunne as his second half goal put an end to a 47 year St Andrews hoodoo.

The skipper used his head to give us the lead in the game and then more than played his part at the back to keep a clean sheet and get Millwall a second consecutive victory on the road – and for a trip to Birmingham it was apparently the first time we have won at their ground since 1968.

Speaking to the official site following the game, Holloway explained.

‘I thought Dunney was absolutely outstanding. He keeps telling me that he should be going forward for every set piece and he certainly proved why tonight! It was a brilliant result and the perfect response to the disappointment of Saturday. I felt for the lads and for the crowd after the Huddersfield game but it is down to us to keep bouncing back and we did that.’

The gaffer went on to say that he sees no reason why Millwall can’t keep on doing this now and keep performing as we did yesterday, because for him it was a magnificent performance and one that the lads can be proud of, and he knows if we can consistently show those levels results will more consistently go for us, we will pull away from the bottom of the table and basically go ‘from strength to strength.’

‘Our movement was very good in the right areas and that contributed massively to the result. There is a great feeling in the dressing room and so there should be, the lads are working incredibly hard and they were rewarded for that against a very good Birmingham side.’

Holloway ends his interview by praising the job that Gary Rowett has done at the Midlands side in terms of turning around their form, but he felt it was a very deserved three points for us and that’s what he wanted to focus on.
