Holloway looking for togetherness

Boss Ollie discusses his quest to build things at Millwall

Millwall manager Ian Holloway believes that a positive atmosphere around the club will help his side fight off the threat of relegation.

The Lions sit six points outside the safety zone but, with 11 games left to play, Holloway insists that they have enough time to produce a run of results which will secure their Championship status for another season.

"What we need to do now is show the same type of togetherness, spirit and commitment to the cause as we all managed to do this time last season," he said.

"The energy around the place then was absolutely immense and that helped the lads to perform at their absolute best.

"We need that again and, so long as the players continue to show the enormous amount of effort and passion that they have been doing, then I'm sure the fans will help to create a positive atmosphere which both helps us and makes it hard for teams to come to The Den and play how they want to."

The boss has also been looking at the bigger picture, saying how encouraged he is by how the club's younger players are developing.

"We're trying to build a better club here at Millwall - a process that takes time - but we are laying some great foundations for the future," he added.

"The progress of some of our younger players this season has been hugely encouraging and I want to see a Millwall side that is packed full of our own lads.

"Some of the best teams throughout the club's history have contained an abundance of homegrown talent and we have already seen glimpses of what the current crop are capable of achieving."
