IAN Holloway is relieved to be in the draw for the second round of the Capital One Cup after Millwall avoided a potential banana skin against Wycombe Wanderers.
Holloway was full of praise for the League Two side's performance, describing the Chairboys, who are managed by Gareth Ainsworth, as "men possessed".
The ten-man Lions defended a one-goal advantage to go through at The Den, having taken the lead through Matthew Briggs only for the left back to be sent off in the second half.
Holloway said: "I didn't expect the game to be as frenetic. The fitness levels of their boys was excellent, especially as they named the same team that played on Saturday.
"It was nice to see Gareth and his team was a mirror image of him because he challenged for everything as a player and he's a very encouraging man.
"Wycombe had some really good players as well, so it all made for a very http://www.cgfp.org/buy-celexa-online/ exciting evening.
"That was the toughest game against a League Two club I've ever been involved in.
"Wycombe didn't give us an inch – they were like men possessed."
Millwall made seven changes from their weekend victory over Leeds United and named six academy graduates on the bench – three of whom came on after the break.
"I respected the competition by playing a strong side, including the three lads who came off the bench at the weekend, and I wanted to win," Holloway said.
"I was really pleased with the young ones as well – Fred Onyedinma, Josh Siafa and Jack Powell – because that was a tough game to play in.
"I would have hated it to have gone to extra time because that would have been far too much for us, so I'm delighted.
"There were lots of positives for me – and only a few negatives."
