Ian Holloway calls for togetherness at Millwall

25 February 2015

Ian Holloway has called for togetherness at Millwall after a 3-1 home defeat to Sheffield Wednesday.

Lions boss Holloway faced calls for him to be sacked from sections of the Den crowd after goals from Lewis McGugan, Atdhe Nuhiu and Stevie May left them in the Sky Bet Championship's bottom three.

Millwall have not won a home game since October - a run stretching back 11 matches - and are three points from safety.

And Holloway said: "I'm just doing my job, and that is to keep my team believing. But unfortunately when we let a goal in it looked like we didn't. So I understand the crowd's reaction.

"But a huge part of that game was as good as we have been. I've never seen so many chances and scrambles and we haven't scored, and then we let another one in quickly, so I understand it.

"When we let a goal in we don't look the same team. I want them to step up to the plate, but if people want to blame me that's how it is these days.

"We have to be brave enough to play and to take the responsibility to play at home. So I'd rather they blamed me.

"But we have to stick together. I don't want to lose - I want to win at home in front of my fans, and if we do they'll feel a lot better than they did tonight."
