Fordey praises Den support after QPR draw

Lions keeper David Forde believes that the side showed 'huge character' to come from behind twice against QPR and secure a last-gasp 2-2 draw on Saturday.

Jermaine Easter's stoppage time strike earned Steve Lomas' men a point against Harry Redknapp's unbeaten R's, one that Fordey believes was a fair reward for Millwall's performance.

"It was thoroughly deserved," he said after the game. "I think we were a little unlucky in the first-half, particularly with the penalty decision. To be fair to them they went down the other end and scored a good goal but there was some sloppy play from us.

"We showed huge character again at home when in the past, particularly maybe seven or eight months ago, we've struggled but we're starting to turn The Den into a real fortress again."

Fordey, who Lomas praised post-match for a superb save to deny QPR a third goal with the score at 2-1, says the fans should take credit for the way they drove the team up to the final whistle.

"The fans were top drawer again. When they get right behind us you can see what they can do.

"We're trying to do the right things, getting the ball down and playing it, and we're getting used to a new formation as well.

"The manager is still getting his ideas across, there are a few new players, and they are all getting used to the Millwall way and how things work. It's all a bit transitional but we're on the right tracks."
