Holloway bemoans 'catalogue of errors'

Boss Ollie provides his post-match reaction

Millwall manager Ian Holloway said his side were guilty of a 'catalogue of errors' in the heavy 6-1 Boxing Day defeat to Norwich City.

The Canaries scored twice in the first-half and added a further four in the second, with substitute Jermaine Easter's late strike nothing more than scant consolation on a hugely disappointing afternoon at Carrow Road.

"There were a catalogue of errors and, if I'm being honest, it could have been a lot worse than that," Holloway said after the game.

"There has been a shattering loss of confidence from the group. We've got some major surgery to do and you can't be a Millwall player if you cannot stand up and be counted.

"By everybody's standards we didn't have the best of games and you cannot afford to do that in the Championship. It is a ruthless level where everybody is trying to get to the top.

"What I have just seen isn't a true reflection of the players we've got. I'll have to take it because Norwich exploited the mistakes that we made."

He added: "I'm trying to build a team that can sustain a run of matches at this level and actually get a run of results in a row. Unfortunately we aren't at the moment.

"But I'm not going to wilt. I'm going to find people who can deal with that with me and for me.

"There are 23 games left - that's half the season to get better than this. We're a long way behind where I want us to be and that's the challenge. The challenge is to improve and get better."
