Holloway to make 'subtle changes'

Lions boss Ollie looks ahead to tonight's game against Brighton

Millwall manager Ian Holloway says he has made 'subtle changes' to his team for tonight's live televised game against Brighton & Hove Albion.

The Lions head to the Amex Stadium looking to show a positive response after last week's 5-1 defeat to Middlesbrough.

Boss Ollie, though, says they now have to draw a line under that result and move forward.

"We got something wrong in the performance and we have looked at that and analysed it," he said.

"We have to accept it because our performance led to it. There was so much wrong that we have to draw a line under it and go back and start again. 

"Those disappointing days should make us stronger and I certainly feel more determined. I want to get this right and I want the fans to have a team they are proud of."

Sami Hyypia's Brighton side are two points and two places behind Millwall in 22nd, but Ollie is focusing only on what his team are capable of doing at the Amex. 

"I want to try and impart our game (on Brighton). I think it's very simple - we go back to what we have been doing.

"We need to get our shape back, work together, close together, stay solid and when we win it we actually move them around. Then we need to do our passing patterns that make us look really good and confident.

"I've made a couple of subtle changes but really we're going back to what we have done pretty well in the past and hopefully it will get us the right result. There is nothing wrong that a win wouldn't put right and that would make us all feel better.

"From my point of view we have however many games to get higher up this division and that is all I'm concerned about."
