Manager Ian Holloway has said he was delighted with another fantastic comeback as we secured a two all draw against Bournemouth at the weekend.

Trailing two nil at half time Ed Upson and Magaye Gueye goals secured a very valuable point at the Goldsand’s Stadium.

Speaking to the official site following the full time whistle, whilst there was obviously disappointments and negatives to have taken from the game, a beaming Holloway was focusing on the positives again.

‘I thought it was an absolutely fantastic game. We knew they started games fast and I was disappointed with our defending for their second goal. But after that the lads gave absolutely everything they had. We had to be the better side in the second half and we were.’

Holloway goes on to say that his message at half time was simple, Millwall had to win the second half battle and win it with at least two goals, and he couldn’t have been more pleased to see them go out and do just that.

Given how we played in the second period though that did give rise to another unexpected disappointment following the first period.

‘We needed to win the second half and we did it by two goals. Unfortunately it wasn’t three and I’m desperate for one of these comeback performances to end with a win because the boys deserve it.’

As well as crediting the players again for giving their all, he adds that the fans couldn’t have given more as they tried to roar the boys on either so he was delighted with and for them given the point we walked out with.
