Nugent on Sheffield point

Read from the boss...

26 April 2022

Kevin Nugent summarised Millwall's Under 23s Professional Development League draw with Sheffield United at Bramall Lane on Tuesday night when speaking to millwallfc.co.uk.

Jayden Davis gave The Lions a first-half lead, but The Blades levelled 10 minutes from time, leaving Millwall to rue missed chances to double their advantage.

"They're a very good side," Nugent told millwallfc.co.uk. "They're well drilled and have lots of good players. They've won their League and been beaten twice all season.

"We had to set up to be solid and not get beaten, and I thought we were just that, defending well from front to back. We got our goal early on and had another couple of opportunities from set-pieces, so it's disappointing that we conceded what we consider a poor goal for the equaliser.

"We're poor in possession, but they do get a bit of luck and a ricochet as well. We're disappointed with that, but it was a good performance and a good point."

Nana Boateng made a first appearance after an injury in a run of three matches in seven days to finish the Professional Development League season: "It was good to get Nana back - it was his first game for a while and he got 60 minutes," the manager added.
