Holloway demands bravery

Last Updated: Sat, 15 Mar 2014 19:15

Millwall boss Ian Holloway admitted his side produced a nervy performance as they were held to a goalless draw by relegation rivals Charlton.

Ed Upson and Steve Morison went closest for the home side but the Lions failed to break the deadlock in a dull affair against their local rivals.

On his first start for the club, Fred Onyedinma almost gave Millwall the lead after 17 minutes but he put his effort wide when well placed.

Millwall have now not won in the Championship since January and, for all their attacking intent, they allowed Charlton - who are three points behind with four games in hand - a fairly comfortable afternoon.

Holloway said: "My thoughts are the same as most of the people in here - all we needed was a goal.

"And I thought it was going to be a fairytale, young Fred (Onyedinma) when he whipped his head round that I thought 'here we go, go on son'.

"Unfortunately it went the wrong side. And they've come in and they're probably happier with it than I am because we wanted to push them and make them have to win two of those games.

"But you know I thought the crowd were excellent and I thought we kept trying. I thought there was a bit of nerves out there. We didn't create as many chances as we can.

"And that's very tough when you end up in a situation like we are in. You have got to be brave to play the way I want to. Hopefully I have simplified it for them."
