Bitter disappointment

17 August 2013

Manager expresses frustration at third League defeat

"Whenever we're on top we seem to concede. That's disappointing and something we have to work on."

"If you look at the stats we were probably the better team, but stats don't win games. I thought the performance was decent but you have to take the opportunities when they come. The lads tried everything to get the win but we couldn't get the goal.

It wasn't to be, however, and Millwall were left licking their wounds after three League defeats from three games at the start of the 2013/14 season.

The Lions did have their fair share of opportunities during the game; Steve Morison going close with headers on three occasions and Alan Dunne and Nicky Bailey each seeing long-range efforts narrowly past the post.

"But to concede another sloppy goal from a set-play is bitterly disappointing. You can't have a free header from five yards in the box. You have to do your job. That's three very sloppy goals we've conceded now."

"I thought that was the best we've played so far this season," Lomas said. "We started on the front foot and had Huddersfield camped in their half early on.

Huddersfield striker James Vaughan headed home an Adam Hammill corner in the 56th minute to secure a 1-0 win for The Terriers, but Lomas was adamant his side had done enough to get something out of the game.

Millwall boss Steve Lomas believes his side were unlucky to lose for the third time this season, but admits The Lions have to cut out conceding "sloppy" goals if they're to start picking up points.
