Holloway eyes improvement after Terriers defeat

9 February 2015

Huddersfield performance "wasn't anywhere near good enough"

Millwall boss Ian Holloway says he want to see an improved performance from his side against Birmingham City on Tuesday night following a disappointing 3-1 defeat to Huddersfield Town.

Goals from Sean Scannell, Jacob Butterfield and James Vaughan won Saturday's match for Huddersfield, who had Nahki Wells sent off with the game evenly poised at 1-1.

And Holloway, whose side now face consecutive away games at St Andrew's and Elland Road, said some of Millwall's play was 'unrecognisable' against Chris Powell's men.

"It was as if the stuffing was knocked out of us after their second goal," he said.

"With the score at 1-1 and having seen them have a man sent off, we tried to win it too much and didn't put the ball into the right areas. Some of our play was unrecognisable at times.

"We didn't do our jobs and the performance in the last 20 minutes especially wasn't anywhere near good enough.

"The group has to be stronger and there is no way that we can let mistakes affect us like they did. We need people to step to the plate and that is what I'm looking for.

"The games are coming thick and fast now so I want to see an improvement on Tuesday night."
