Manager Ian Holloway has said he felt Millwall deserved at least a point from the game against Reading.

A three two defeat that saw Millwall fight back from two goals behind before Reading got their noses in front again minutes before full time, left Holloway disappointed as he talked to the official site.

‘I can’t believe that with the amount of shots we’ve had and the way we dominated that we’ve lost the game. We maybe started too defensive but after it switched around we played very well. It was a fantastic performance and I’m proud of the boys.’

Holloway goes on to say that football can be a very cruel game and to not come out of that with at least a point was bitterly disappointing for him, because a point was the least he felt we deserved as even going down two nil, he thought the performance warranted a victory and had we got all three points he doesn’t feel opposite number Nigel Adkins could’ve really grumbled.

‘If the lads keep doing what they are doing then they will get the rewards, no doubt about it but how cruel can football be? Apart from some of the defending it was a performance I think everybody associated with out club can be proud of. Did we deserve to lose then game, no, no chance.’

One disappointment was the fact we conceded again from a set piece, but that’s another lesson he can work on in training to improve our solidarity further and that’s how he is taking it.
