IAN Holloway praised Millwall's work ethic in their 1-0 win at Dartford.
The Lions ground out a narrow victory at Princes Park in their first pre-season friendly of the summer and Holloway was pleased with the professionalism of his side.
Holloway fielded a different team in each half and the Millwall manager admitted that led to a disjointed performance.
"I'm pleased it's over," Holloway said afterwards. "I don't like these type of games because basically it's a banana skin and we're working everyone really hard.
"We've had one injury strain which we didn't want in Justin Hoyte. He was looking pretty tasty on the right side.
"They're all trying to show me what they can do in 45 minutes and there's no continuity. But I was pleased with the attitude and how hard we worked.
"A lot of our shape was wrong when we got in behind them. We got into good areas but that pre-season tiredness cost us a bit. Our movement has to better.
"But the atmosphere is great in the group. We've come here and been very disciplined. I think we behaved professionally on and off the field.
"They gave me that work rate and we'll take that all day long. It's not every day you plan two lots of set-plays just to get a good workout under your belt.
"That dusts down the cobwebs."
Holloway was quietly impressed with trialists Matthew Briggs and Magaye Gueye.
"I thought they did really well considering they've been with us a couple of days," he said.
"One of them [Gueye] doesn't speak the same language as us. He looked very promising. Briggsy – I can't believe he's on a free transfer."
