Manager Ian Holloway has insisted that Millwall still have more than enough time to secure our Championship safety following the loss to Barnsley yesterday.

A goal inside the opening five minutes was enough to consign Millwall to another defeat this season, and having played 32 games so far, and all three teams below us having at least a game in hand, should bottom placed Yeovil Town make the most of that game, we would be level on points with them which isn’t something anyone would’ve thought possible even a week ago.

Speaking to the official site following the game, Holloway said the players simply had to dust themselves down and get ready to go again, and next time get the victory.

‘We could have gone a long way to making our season easier, but we didn’t. It’s as bad a result as I’ve had in the long time, mainly because of the magnitude of what a win would’ve done. In a way we’re back to square one, but we’ve got 14 games to go now, which is a lot of matches.’

Desperate for positives, Ollie does point out the chances we had in the game, and the fact we created more opportunities than they did, but unfortunately we didn’t take any of them again and they did ‘unfortunately it’s as simple as that.’

Holloway does add praise for the fans who he describes as being ‘brilliant’ again, and he assures everyone that the players will be working their socks off in training to get things right on the pitch and to pick up the wins that we all want.
