Manager Ian Holloway praised the spirit of the side as they kept going until the very last minute in the game last night against Sheffield Wednesday.

Millwall trailed in the game from just before the hour mark when Wednesday went ahead at Hillsborough, but a gutsy and effort led performance from the team saw us pick up a good point to keep our unbeaten run going when Magaye Gueye struck in injury time to level the scores up.

Speaking to the Official Site after the game, the gaffer explained.

‘What a fantastic game it was, a draw was probably a fair result at the end of it all. Was it a handball for their freekick? I’m not so sure. Was it a penalty for us? I don’t know about that either, but they were both given and it made the game all the more exciting.’

Holloway goes on to say that he had to give the team a ‘rocket’ at the half time break because he felt we were trying to ‘move the ball almost too much’ and he wanted us to be a touch more direct.

‘There was a lot of sideways and backwards passing when we should’ve got it forward a bit more. Lee Gregory made some great runs but we didn’t really look for him.’

The gaffer was obviously delighted to see Gueye have the impact he did when he came off the bench, and he also credited the unselfishness of Ricardo Fuller for passing it because he could’ve had a crack himself, but the pass was the right decision to have made.

Ending Ollie commented on the spirit and the way the team are playing because he feels things really are coming together nicely now, and the players are believing in themselves and games like that can only help in his mind.
