Saville summarises Hawthorns point

Hear from the midfielder...

13 September 2021

George Saville praised Millwall's performance during Saturday's 1-1 Sky Bet Championship draw at West Bromwich Albion - and felt his side perhaps should've taken all three points from The Hawthorns.

Kyle Bartley gave The Baggies the lead early in the second-half after Bartosz Bialkowski saved Karlan Grant's penalty-kick with the last kick of the first-half, but that lead was to last just six minutes as Daniel Ballard rose highest to equalise with a header and secure a point.

The Lions then had the better chances to claim victory from there, but both sides had to settle for a draw.

"I thought we were really good today," Saville told millwallfc.co.uk. "We were really organised and we knew what they were going to throw at us. We had to be patient and on another day we could've got the three points - we had some very good chances.

"We were solid for 45 minutes, but then a lapse of concentration and suddenly we could've been 1-0 down. However, that's why we've got Bart between the sticks - he's brilliant for us and kept us in the game.

"When you go 1-0 down to a club like West Brom, at The Hawthorns, I feel like you need to score sooner rather than later. We countered well after we scored and could've nicked it. Ultimately, we wanted to win the game, but before the game we would've taken the draw, coming to a place like this especially, so it's a point we can build on."

A midweek trip to Swansea City is next up for Millwall.

"Wednesday will be a completely different game with a completely different style of play. We'll rest up and get ready for then."
