Manager Steve Lomas has said that he feels Millwall deserved more out of last night’s two all draw with Nottingham Forest.

Millwall took the lead twice on the night thanks to goals from Steve Morison and Martyn Woolford, but unfortunately Forest got themselves back into it both times and obviously that was a source of disappointment for the manager.

Speaking to the official site following the game Lomas did have plenty of positives he could take from the match.

‘That was a proper performance in terms of our passion and commitment. We’re disappointed because we took the lead twice and didn’t win, but there was still plenty to be pleased with against a good Forest team.’

Lomas went on to say that he felt he made the right decision to go 442 on the day, and he felt that both Morison and Woolford justified the change because they put some fantastic pressure on the Forest defence and that was what he was hoping to do, as it gave us a good ‘platform to build off.’ He also adds that he was very pleased with the performance of Liam Trotter on the evening, as given he hadn’t had much training time under his belt prior to the game, he more than showed why he was such an important member of the team with how he performed and Lomas also said that Trotter doesn’t often get the praise he deserves following games because of his style, but if you look at the stats he’s definitely up there.

The task now for Lomas is to take us into the Wigan game looking to extend our unbeaten run at home to six games and he adds that if we can hopefully replicate our performance but we tighter in defence again, he’s more than confident that we can take all three points out of the match.

Of course finishing the interview he also talks about having a bit more luck, pointing to the two penalty shouts that he feels should’ve been awarded in the game and had one of them been, he feels confidently he’d have been sitting there talking about three points.
