Holloway proud of dramatic comeback

18 October 2014

Manager pleased to earn a point from 'fantastic' game

Ian Holloway said Saturday's dramatic 3-3 draw against Wolves completed a 'proud' week for Millwall.

The Lions - thanks to goals from Lee Gregory and Ricardo Fuller (2) fought back from 3-0 down with 25 minutes to grab a point against Kenny Jackett's side, though Shaun Williams will miss Tuesday's trip to Wigan after being sent off in the dying seconds.

"The sprit the players showed is ingrained in this club's mentality," Ollie said afterwards. 

"I'm so proud of the club. What we've done yesterday with the special kit launch and then that comeback today - it is what this club is all about. All that plus the golf day on Wednesday, which was brilliant, has made it a great week and I'm delighted.

"It was probably the most exciting game I've been involved in. It was a fantastic; the tempo at times in this League is phenomenal and we saw that.

"We can't defend like that but every player, at 3-0 down, gave the fans exactly what they expect from them.

"How many teams would come back from 3-0 down against a side like Wolves? It was a great recovery from us."

The boss added: "The goals we scored were good ones. Lee Gregory has done brilliantly and he could have had another one as well. I'm not sure how the chance he had before he scored didn't go in.

"Ricky (Fuller) has come off the bench and scored two great goals. We have to learn how to play to him a bit better because he's a different type of player to what we had last year.

"Credit to Wolves - they made it tough for us. Kenny (Jackett) has them playing a great style of football and they're a very good side.

"The fans gave Kenny a great reception and he deserved that because the job he did here was fantastic.

"He will probably be feeling different to me at the moment but I'm just pleased we've managed to get something out of the game because we didn't deserve to lose."
