Having seen us go down two nil to Ipswich last weekend, manager Ian Holloway has said he’s convinced the players can be better, and more importantly, we must be better than that showing.

Millwall dominated large parts of the first half especially but couldn’t find the breakthrough and then we went in to the half time break a goal behind, and when Ipswich added a second just after the hour mark our hopes of picking up back to back wins was over.

Speaking to the official site after full time, Holloway said.

‘It was disappointing, we let ourselves down. But well done to them, they made it difficult for us to break them down. When we went 1-0 down we didn’t respond how I would want and the longer it went on the worse it got.’

Holloway says that we simply didn’t ‘close’ the ball down enough, the passing wasn’t sharp enough – it was everything the Fulham performance wasn’t and then from going from a position where we should’ve opened the scoring, one big ball later they are ahead and we’re behind.

‘Their second goal was from a totally useless set piece that we didn’t react to properly. However, that’s it now, we will be one point short of the target I set before this game which was seven from three games this week.’

He goes on to say that we now have to improve again and put this behind us and make sure we take six from nine instead.
