Ollie's pride

Manager praises players after Boro victory

Millwall boss Ian Holloway said he was proud of his players after Stefan Maierhofer's brace helped The Lions to a 2-1 win at the Riverside Stadium.

The Austrian striker grabbed two first-half headers to hand the visitors a comfortable lead at the interval, but Emmanuel Ledesma, with a late free-kick, ensured a nervy finish. The Lions, though, held on for their third-straight away win, a result which pulls the club out of the drop zone ahead of Monday's home game against relegation rivals Doncaster Rovers.

"It's a fantastic win for us and I'm proud of the players," Ollie said.

"Playing today, with all the games and results yesterday, was that much more difficult. We had certain things to concentrate on and we did, which was fantastic.

"I was actually disappointed not to win the second-half. We had the chances, before and after their goal, to put the game to bed. I thought Lee Martin's goal shouldn't have been ruled out, but hopefully that won't affect the goal difference later on.

"There's no point looking at the League table now because what matters is what it shows after the next three games. Now we have got a horrible journey to get back and prepare for Monday, but we will be fully focused and ready for it. Nobody has to tell me how important a game it is."
