Ollie: Millwall striker needs better service against Reading

MILLWALL striker Mathias Ranegie needs better service against Reading tonight, boss Ian Holloway has said.

Ranegie was feeding off scraps during Saturday's 2-0 defeat at Ipswich Town but looks set to keep his place in the Lions' starting XI at the Madejski Stadium.

And Holloway has called on his side to improve the quality of their delivery in the final third as they bid to bounce back against the Royals on Tuesday night.

"We've got to realise that we've got Ranegie, who's great in the air, and we only gave him one or two chances to win a header," he said.

"We lacked crosses into the box at the weekend."

Holloway admits he could make changes to his line up.

"I'll have a look at things, see who's fresh and who I think can take on Reading," he added. "They're a good side and they'll be a stern test.

"At Ipswich, I saw more things wrong in that second half than I've seen in four or five months.

"We've got to improve because at the minute we're not the best team in the world when we go 1-0 down.

"We're not that good at breaking people down, which is exactly the same as last year."

            @TONY BLOCK28: I spoke to Reading and Millwall and both said yes just as long as you have your season ticket or membership number I think you need the south stand ticket office

    Hand on heart, I thought he should have been taken off at half-time, he looked knackered and lethargic. We all know what we need is a natural striker in his 20's !!. But hey it's a lot lot better than 12 months ago.
    I'm sorry Dunny, i don't normally bash people but you just ain't tall enough or good enough. COYL !!

      @First game 1966
      The thing is has IH backed himself into a corner by making Dunny captain,will he be prepared to drop him.
      Before the pro Dunny brigade get on my back.
      He came under pressure aginst leeds when smith came on and it looked at one time as if beever,s might change position's with him,rotherham the same,and also against blackpool.Other team's will take advantage of his lack of height and strength needed for the centre back position.

          Sorry jim duuny came under pressure in those three games,so read what i said,other teams will put pressure on him, and edwards and beavers will in turn come under presssure in having to cover him,this is not a knock at dunny but webster has to be the man in that position.
          mark my words jim ,team's will target dunny in future games because they will see it as a weak point.

    Service to the forward isn't likely to improve with Martin out for a few weeks. Wasn't exactly that great with him fit. We need to get a decent winger in on loan.

    Webster and Beevers need to be the CB pairing. The only way they will get stronger together is if they play together. Then I'd have Williams and Powell protecting the back four which would also make the midfield more in control as they're both quality on the ball. Then the wide men would be gueye and woolford with upsson in the middle and then rangie up front.

    As for the gregory situation,i think this goes back to the sheff wed game when ollie took him off,evidently he showed he did not like being replaced,and he showed it.[ollie himself said he would have a word with him about it],could this be ollie showing who is boss or being a bit to bolshy about the situation,what ever ollie the boy deserves a run in the team.He has shown he knows how to score a goal,thats why we paid £250.000 for him.After all if he does'nt play how is he going to step up to championship level

    Fair comment from IH, but Ranegie also needs to put a shift in!
