Ollie: 'We're playing for each other'

16 August 2014

Manager delighted with his squad's togetherness

Millwall boss Ian Holloway said his squad are playing for one another after watching them run out 1-0 winners at Craven Cottage on Saturday.

Martyn Woolford hit the winning goal in the 11th minute against Felix Magath's Fulham side, who put Millwall under pressure for large parts of the game.

The Lions remained organised and resolute throughout, though, and Ollie was delighted with his side's showing.

"We knew it would be tough but we looked sharp and together all the way through," he said.

"What they (Fulham) spend and what we spend are two different things, but you wouldn't have known that watching the game.

"It was a really well worked goal and I wasn't nervous at the end. I thought we would go up the other end and get another one on the counter attack.

"Fulham have got some talented players and they moved the ball well but we kept our shape and made it hard for them to break us down. David Forde has made two or three brilliant saves again."

Around 4,000 Lions fans roared their side on to victory at Craven Cottage, and boss Ollie was over the moon with their backing.

"The supporters were brilliant, absolutely fantastic," he said. 

"I'm so proud of them all. Fulham might have felt they would win today but our fans have seen us come here, get a result and play extremely well.

"Fulham have treated our fans with absolute respect and I thank them for that."
