'We have to move on', says Holloway

Lions manager wants his side to put Huddersfield defeat behind them

Millwall boss Ian Holloway says his side have to move on from Saturday's loss to Huddersfield ahead of tonight's match against Birmingham City at St Andrew's.

The Lions slipped to a 3-1 defeat at The Den over the weekend despite having a man advantage for most of the second-half, but Holloway believes there were positives to take into this evening's encounter with Gary Rowett's in-form Blues side.

"The whole performance was marred at the end where we failed as a club again to beat 10 men," he said.

"There was lots and lots of really good stuff from us. But (after the sending off) we failed to move them around and hurt them, and then we have made two mistakes for one goal and that gutted everyone in the ground.

"But we have to move on now and the team we are playing next have proved that you can do that very quickly.

"Birmingham have got a new manager in there who has brought in some new players and helped to galvanise the club.

"They have great athleticism in wide areas and up front, and the way they go about it is very solid.

"I'm told it has been a bit of a graveyard for us and that we haven't won there since the 1960s, but I don't believe in things like that."
