Millwall boss plays down Beevers' clash with QPR supporter

IAN Holloway has played down an incident in which Mark Beevers was kneed in the back by a QPR fan after Saturday's 1-1 draw at Loftus Road.

Hoops supporters invaded the pitch at the final whistle to mark their last home league game of the season but one slid into Beevers while he was lying on the ground injured.

Beevers, who had been playing with a glute problem, had to be helped to the dressing room by Lions medical staff.

The defender told NewsAtDen: "I couldn't move during the last ten minutes.

"I've been feeling my glute all week - it's like a dead leg. It's very sore every time I land on it.

"I did it in the first half and had to ice it at half time. At the final whistle, I sat down because I could barely stand up. I was obviously tired and my leg was sore.

"I was facing towards the dugout when the fans started running on. One of them steamed in and slipped, on his knees, and his knees went straight into my back, full force.

"I was shocked because I didn't see him coming and I wasn't braced for the impact. It was really sore."

When asked about the incident in his post-match press conference, Holloway saw the funny side.

He said: "Someone ran on and slipped over. The lads are laughing at Beeves because he got done by a 12-year-old!

"He's a practical joker anyway. He had a bag of ice on his back - God knows what happened.

"I don't blame QPR fans for running on the pitch. Beeves will be fine for the next game.

"People get a bit excited and maybe they shouldn't run on the pitch, but I can tell you that pitch is pretty slippery!"

  3. Apparently the guy who kneed Beevers slipped and if so, what can you really do? It was an accident, no harm done really.

        No it was Kirkland from Wednesday who ran around to ref grassing that an empty plastic bottle had been thrown on the pitch landing about 15 yards from him. It was to waste more time taking the goal kick as they were 1-0 up at the time. He's a disgrace to football and his face is a disgrace to mankind. As for Millwall, come on lads, one last effort on Saturday. Miiiii

            @carewlion: Innocent until proven guilty for most clubs.... Guilty until proven innocent for Millwall.
            Yeah, watched IH interview on lions player this morning - he was proud of us, and rightly so, we were immense yesterday- the noise was fantastic! It's refreshing when a manager sees it how, we, the fans see it. Would've been terrible to be robbed of a point by a decision like that.. never a hand ball... I felt KJ lacked a bit in this department - he was more inclined to say 'no comment' or words to that effect... nice when the gaffer shows a similar amount of passion as the fans and says it how he honestly sees it... COYL.

    It's not newsworthy because it wasn't a negative for Millwall. That's the way the world turns.
    If Blackpool can win at Wigan, anything is possible on Saturday. That's what I'm concentrating on, me and my calculator, so I hope everyone at the Den is in the same mindset.
    Mouth watering games next season if we can stay in the Championship. An interesting close season with all the possible ins and outs. Let's make sure we are looking down at 5pm and not up.

    Feet on the ground time folks.
    The last time we had a convincing win at home Lomas was in charge so next week is far from a formality and talk of the play-offs next year is ridiculous.
    It's hard to believe that Doncaster will stop Leicester breaking the 100 point mark, but after Blackpool's win yesterday nothing is out of the question.
    Tuesday's a big night. A point or more for Birmingham and/or Charlton changes the picture massively.
    It's in our hands though and a month ago we were preparing for League One and talking about clearing out the squad and giving the youth a chance. COYL

    I was there, I saw the incident, if it was a 12 year old then he was big 12 year old and he didn't trip accidentally! I'm not saying the QPR fan deliberately set out to try and hurt a MFC player, but he definitely meant to slide as if he'd just scored a goal and was celebrating it like, like a lot of goal scorers do!
