Holloway focusing on the positives

3 October 2014

Boss Ollie looks ahead to Saturday's Rams test

Millwall manager Ian Holloway wants his side to 'get their season going again' away to Derby County on Saturday.

The Lions head to the iPro Stadium on the back of a five-game winless run whilst The Rams, under the guidance of Steve McClaren, are unbeaten in seven and are yet to lose at home this season.

It is a test the Millwall boss is looking forward to and he has been focusing on the positives ahead of the game.

"We're doing really well in parts but we're conceding goals again," Ollie told Lions Player. "Normally after 10 games you find out where you are and you find your level. I'm upset that it's not where we were after five games but we've got to keep going and working hard.

"There's an awful lot of positives coming from me, particularly with the way some of the young lads have played.

"We've got to be big and strong, go to Derby and get our season going again. I want to keep things moving forward and we're getting there in a funny way but it isn't going to be fixed overnight. We've got to see if we can compete higher up this division."

Meanwhile, Rams boss McClaren expects a 'tricky' encounter against Ollie's men.

"It's a dangerous game, a tricky game, but the players should have no worries," the former England boss told

"It's up to us, it's up to our attitude and our focus as always. We have prepared right and we will know what the game plan is and stick to it.

"We know that Millwall and Ian Holloway will have a trick up their sleeve to get a result against us again."
