"We started well and finished well. In between we had to dig in as a team and we showed real character. We didn't have the cutting edge going forward we would have liked, so we've got to be happy with a point."

Pearce praised his defence and admitted: "Millwall generated momentum with the fans. We have an abundance of determination to get blocks in and do the dirty side of the game. The two centre backs did fantastic. Michael Mancienne is a Rolls Royce. Pure class.

The Lions had lost four of their previous five games in all competitions, but they ripped into Forest who were lucky to retain their unbeaten record this season.

Nottingham Forest boss Stuart Pearce praised his side for doing the dirty side of the game after his league leaders left The Den with a point.

In a keenly contested match that pitched previously unbeaten Forest against a Millwall team who had lost four of their five previous games, it was visiting boss Stuart Pearce who appeared the more relieved of the two managers as his side withstood a good amount of attacking pressure from Ian Holloway's men.

Millwall's Den draw with Championship leaders was the main feature match on Saturday night's Football League show - and the game also had a significant amount of coverage in the Sunday papers too.
Stuart Pearce's table-toppers made it 10 games unbeaten this season - but only just.

Forest had keeper Karl Darlow to thank as he made a stunning point-blank save from Mathias Ranegie.

Millwall boss Ian Holloway also felt his side were robbed of a spot-kick when Eric Lichaj appeared to trip Jermaine Easter.

But he did not complain too loudly, knowing his side also had a lucky escape. Holloway said: "We should have had a penalty for that but the referee should have also given a penalty for a foul by Jimmy Abdou.

"I have tried to stop complaining and instead I write all my grievances down in a notebook. But I am not so good at that either and I even spelt a sewarword wrong - and I got told off for gesturing!"

Pearce disputed Ollie's claims, saying: "I didn't think either was a penalty and, in fact, I thought referee Graham Scott had a very good game.

"Millwall did very well, motivating momentum with their fans and we had to put on a good defensive display in what was a scrappy game.

"I was happy with a point and a clean sheet at a place that is always difficult."
