Ollie: 'I'm so proud'

26 April 2014

Boss delighted - but all still to do

Ian Holloway was mightily relieved after watching his brave Lions battle back from a 1-0 deficit to secure a vital point thanks to Scott Malone's last-gasp leveller at QPR.

Results on the afternoon now leave The Lions knowing that victory in their last game of the season at home to in-form Bournemouth next Saturday will secure Championship football for another season, but defeat coupled with wins for Birmingham or Doncaster could condemn Millwall to League One.

"I thought my lads were absolutely fantastic from start to finish," he said. "First half in particular we were fantastic. We should have gone in front, first with Maierhofer and then Woolford, who got round Richard Dunne and then fired just wide.

"I can't ask for any more. The players have been superb over the last couple of months. They kept going and going and had unbelievable support from our fans. They were out of this world. What fans, what great fans we've got. I am so proud of them"

Ollie was, however, less than happy with the penalty awarded to QPR when the game was still 0-0. "I think handball should be deliberate and sometimes it might have hit his hand; was it in the box, was it deliberate? Not one of the crowd jumped up. The only person who appealed was Kranjcar and he was outside the area," fumed Ollie.

"Anyway, I don't want to talk about that. We showed tremendous character to come here and play how we did under the kind of pressure we are under. That's seven we've not lost and I can see them and how much they care."
