Ollie targets 10-point mark

29 August 2014

Boss wants return to winning ways


"On Saturday there were a few players who looked a bit jaded," said Ollie, "But against Southampton there was much to be encouraged about, and a number of those who featured that night have certainly given me food for thought.

The Lions host Jose Riga's struggling side aiming to claim a first home win in three, having lost to Rotherham United (0-1) and Southampton (0-2) in the previous two matches this week.

Ian Holloway wants his Millwall side to claim three points against Blackpool and reach a points tally in double figures before signing off for the international break.
"The important thing is, I believe in all my players and I believe in the way we're trying to play, which incidentally was a little bit different in midweek and we'd only really practiced for one training session.
"Overall they are getting it and the more we play, the better we'll become at it.

 

"What we need right now, more than anything else, is to win our next game against Blackpool so we can go into the international break with 10 points from five games, which would be an acceptable return.

"Everyone has been working exceptionally hard and I can't wait for the game because there is so much enthusiasm and determination within this group of players to learn, to improve and to win football matches."
