More than deserved

Lomas reviews last-gasp QPR draw

Lions boss Steve Lomas had nothing but praise for his players after they came from behind twice to secure a 2-2 draw against Queens Park Rangers.

Niko Kranjcar gave the visitors a first-half lead seconds after a controversial decision not to award Millwall a penalty, before Scott McDonald equalised in the 53rd minute.

Harry Redknapp's Hoops restored their goal advantage through Charlie Austin but Jermaine Easter, on as a late substitute, found space in the box deep into stoppage time before firing the ball past visiting keeper Rob Green to send The Den into raptures.

"I though the point was the least we deserved," Lomas said. "I'm really pleased with the number of chances we created against a QPR side who I think will run away with this League.

"We should have dealt with the opening goal better and we had to re-group at half-time.

"But we came out in the second-half and gave a great response. We knew there would be times when they would keep possession and you have to be patient with that, and we could have been back in it through Liam (Trotter) who had a couple of headers.

"He did excellent to dispossess Richard Dunne and slide it to Scotty (McDonald) for a great finish and we were up and running.

"Charlie Austin gave them that second goal and you can see why they paid a few million for him. At 2-1, David Forde made a great save to keep us in it and that was a key moment.

"We went for it with four forwards on the pitch by the end and I'm delighted for the lads after two tough-to-take results before the international break. We have to replicate this performance away to Reading now."
