Holloway looking for immediate response

25 February 2015

"We have to bounce straight back at Rotherham," says Ollie

Millwall boss Ian Holloway is looking for his side to 'bounce straight back' in the crunch game against Rotherham on Saturday after The Lions fell to a 3-1 defeat against Sheffield Wednesday at The Den.

The Owls were ruthless on the counter attack as they hit three second-half goals with Diego Fabbrini's injury-time strike - his first for the club - scant consolation on a disappointing evening for Millwall.

The Lions were made to pay for being unable to convert one of several good first-half chances and Holloway, speaking afterwards, believes his side didn't respond well to going behind.

"Every time we let in a goal here it instantly feels like doom and gloom," he said. "Well we have to be better than that for our supporters.

"At the end of the day you make your own luck in football. People stopped doing the right things after they scored, and their second goal came far too quickly after the first.

"We didn't respond well to the change of shape and I will hold my hands up for that.

"Like I've said before we look a very good side when we get the first goal in games, but for some reason it just hasn't happened for us at The Den recently.

"We have had two or three really good chances but couldn't get that all-important first goal, which can be so key in the Championship.

"We have to bounce straight back at Rotherham on Saturday. Our away form has been good so we have to continue that."
