Ollie: Little margin for error

11 April 2014

Boss Holloway urges The Lions to make the most of home advantage

Millwall manager Ian Holloway believes his side have given themselves a fighting chance of survival again following back-to-back wins against Nottingham Forest and Wigan.

The Lions are two points from safety ahead of Saturday's game with Watford at The Den and Ollie, speaking in this weekend's edition of The Lion, believes the home crowd could play a huge part.

"We're back on our own patch and we have to use this to our advantage," he says. "We will again be trying to play good football and get another vital win, knowing there is very little margin for error in terms of the points we can afford to drop.

"I need you (the fans) to help ease the pressure by keeping encouraging the boys. Our last two performances have been 'fear free' and that has been crucial. We need to be 'fear free' again on Saturday and if we are we can get another vital result against a team who are very capable of passing you off the pitch if you let them.

"We still have a mountain to climb but we've now given ourselves a fighting chance of reaching that summit."

There is much more from Ollie in Saturday's matchday programme.
