Ollie says Lions hitting form at a key time

Millwall manager Ian Holloway says his side are hitting form at the right time after Martyn Woolford's 95th-minute strike secured a 2-2 draw with Watford at The Den.

Lewis McGugan handed the visitors a first-half lead but Steve Morison came off the bench to level on 64 minutes. Almen Abdi's deflected effort looked to have won it for The Hornets with four minutes to go but Woolford, in what was almost the last kick off the game, smashed the ball home to send the home crowd into raptures.

"We threw everything at Watford and it would have been a crime if we didn't get something," Ollie said.

"We keep being punished for our mistakes but there was nothing wrong with our body language after their second goal. People might have thought that would have been that but the players believed we could equalise and we did.

"Everyone is running their legs off for this football club and we're playing good football at the right time.

"It is important that we keep going whatever happens."

Boss Holloway was full of praise for the home supporters.

"The fans were magnificent, absolutely fantastic. They stayed with us at half-time even though we behind and kept pushing us on and on. That was a boost for the players, and I think the crowd thought we could get the equaliser as well."

The Lions travel to the Riverside Stadium to face Middlesbrough next Saturday before heading in to their final three games against Doncaster, QPR and Bournemouth.

"We're on 40 points now which is a boost after being stuck in the 30's for a long, long time. Is anybody in better form than us down the bottom of the table? I'm not sure, but it is up to us to continue it and keep fighting for our lives. I believe we can do it and the players do too."
