Nugent mulls over Charlton encounter

Read from the Under 23s boss...

1 February 2021

Millwall Under 23s' boss Kevin Nugent analysed the 1-1 draw with Charlton Athletic on Monday afternoon as a game of two halves.

George Alexander gave The Lions a first-half stoppage-time lead against The Addicks at Princes Park in a 45 minutes that Millwall were the dominant force, but Richard Afrane-Kesey found the net after the break to ensure a share of the derby spoils.

Alexander also saw a spot-kick saved by Charlton goalkeeper Nathan Harness.

"I thought we performed as good as have done all season in the first-half," Nugent told "The only criticism that I would have is that we didn't test the goalkeeper as much as I would've liked when we were dominating and getting in good areas.

"George won the penalty, took the penalty and missed the penalty, but it was a very good save from the 'keeper. He was then brave enough to go and get a goal, though.

"We went in at half-time 1-0 up, but it should've been more given how much we had dominated the game. In the second-half, I don't think we quite lived up to that, but we probably had more chances than we did in the first. I feel we should've won the game.

"Last week was a lesson in if we couldn't win the game, don't lose it. Today, I thought we had that about us."
