The right attitude

31 August 2013

Lomas praises Millwall commitment

Lions boss Steve Lomas expressed his frustration that his side were unable to register their first League win of the season against Brighton.

Martyn Woolford gave The Lions the lead early in the second-half, but Seagulls striker Leonardo Ulloah equalised in 89th minute after defender Alan Dunne had seen red for two bookable offences moments earlier.

And Lomas believes Dunne's dismissal, after a booking for time-wasting and another for a late tackle, was a decisive factor in the end result.

"The sending off was a key turning point in the game at a point when we were comfortable," he said. "The first-half was fairly even and if we had a better final ball we could've created some chances.

"But we started the second-half very well. We were disciplined, gave Brighton problems and the goal was very well-worked.

"Coming away from a club like Brighton disappointed that we've only got a draw tells a story. The players showed great commitment to the cause today."

Lomas also took time to praise goalscorer Martyn Woolford who latched onto Richard Chaplow's delicate pass to fire The Lions in front in the 50th minute.

"Wooly's attitude has to be commended. The way he's acted has been a shining light as to how you should go about trying to force your way into a team."
