Dunney praises Millwall spirit in Wednesday draw

Alan Dunne believes the 2-2 draw at Hillsborough was the least The Lions deserved after dominating large spells of the game against Sheffield Wednesday.

Millwall took an early lead when Kamil Zayatte turned Lee Martin's teasing low cross into his own net but two costly individual errors turned the game in The Owls' favour midway through the first-half.

A point was secured in the 86th minute, however, when Andy Keogh converted from 12-yards after Richard Chaplow was felled in the area, and the point earned is the first in the League under manager Steve Lomas.

"The result was definitely deserved," Dunney told "The early goal gave us confidence but then the two goals we gave away were very poor. We have to learn from that and learn fast."

"On the positive side we're not getting broken down as a defensive unit. The goals we're conceding are just individual errors which we can cut out.

"Once the had the lead I think Wednesday let us have the ball a bit and allowed us to come at them. We played very good football and dominated, particularly in the second-half, and most of their play in the end was long-ball stuff. The belief we showed to pull it back was brilliant.

"Overall we have to be very pleased with the point. Hillsborough is a very tough place to come and the result gets our season up and running."
