Report: Millwall 1-3 Huddersfield Town

MILLWALL wasted a golden opportunity to move out of the relegation zone as they were beaten 3-1 by ten-man Huddersfield.

The Lions looked to be in command after Stefan Maierhofer cancelled out Sean Scannell's opener and Nahki Wells was sent off in the 51st minute.

But Millwall failed to capitalise on their numerical advantage and David Forde handed the Terriers the initiative when he was beaten too easily by Jacob Butterfield's long-range shot.

Things went from bad to worse in the 86th minute when Shaun Williams bundled over Harry Bunn inside the area and James Vaughan converted from the spot.

Brighton's defeat to Nottingham Forest means Millwall are still only two points adrift of safety but this was a big chance spurned to climb out of the bottom three.

Following on from last weekend's 1-0 win over Forest, manager Ian Holloway made just one change to his starting line up.

Winger Lee Martin (bruised ribs) dropped out of the side after failing a late fitness test, with Ed Upson coming into the XI to replace him.

Diego Fabbrini has proved an instant hit since his arrival at The Den and he created the first chance of the game in the 7th minute, bursting through midfield before spreading the play to Magaye Gueye.

Gueye was in space inside the box but a poor first touch led to a second and he was off-balance when he eventually struck his shot, which was pushed away by Alex Smithies.

The Lions were building up a head of steam and they struck the bar when Upson controlled a high ball before finding Maierhofer, whose shot from an acute angle came back off the woodwork.

But the visitors took the lead against the run of play when Scannell finished emphatically beyond Forde after Wells' lobbed through ball beat the offside trap, despite Millwall's protests.

Huddersfield's lead lasted just 11 minutes, however, as Maierhofer bundled the ball over the line after Mark Beevers' initial effort had been saved.

Gueye could have put the Lions in front for the first time but drilled wide before Scannell fired into the side netting at the other end.

Scannell, who was a transfer target for Holloway back in August, then teed up Harry Bunn on the edge of the box and the winger's first-time effort clattered the bar.

Forde palmed Wells' looping header behind for a corner as Huddersfield finished the first half in the ascendency.

But the Terriers were reduced to ten men six minutes after the restart when referee Michael Jones showed Wells his second yellow card after a coming together with Shaun Williams.

The Lions were slow to seize the initiative and half-chances for Upson and Beevers came and went without troubling Smithies.

The game was evenly-poised but out of nothing, Huddersfield retook the lead.

Jimmy Abdou was caught on the ball by Butterfield but his route to goal was quickly closed off by three defenders, leaving the midfielder with a long-range shot as his only option.

Butterfield took it, letting fly from at least 30 yards and his effort bounced awkwardly in front of Forde, who inexplicably allowed the ball to squirm through his attempted parry.

Whatever momentum Millwall did have quickly evaporated after that as the tide turned in favour of Huddersfield.

And they made the points safe when Bunn's charging run into the box was halted by Williams, and Vaughan sent Forde the wrong way from 12 yards to make it 3-1.

    This is all Lomas’s and Jackett’s fault – probably Spackman’s too. So all you nasty & disloyal Ollie-knockers – just lay off. As always, the club knows exactly what its doing and so does our beloved Ollie.

    In Ollie we trust, forever.

    Well all the IH lovers can now see that this clown will take us down. There was an air of optimism after the reading game when we showed a bit of bite and earned a home draw against a struggling team. I couldn't understand why people were so excited that we drew against fellow strugglers at home. Now today we have a line up almost exclusively made up of IH signings which was previously his get out excuse for defeat. Once again we fail to beat a struggling team at home who were down to 10 men for most of the second half. The guy is clueless. We will be relegated with him at the helm. I wonder what excuse we will hear this week. Perhaps the sending off was at the wrong time or it's very difficult to break down 10 men...blah blah blah. I want my Millwall back.

    Total p***, we have the weakest minded players in the country, they fold so quickly.. We were decent in the 1st 45 and if it wasn't for weak defending we should have been going in a half time with a lead. Second half the team looked asleep and when we were gift the ten men no one wanted the ball?? For me IHs substitutions were poor, both Hof and Upson were playing well and Gregs/Fuller were non existent. And as for Forde.... Has to be dropped!!!
    The is something seriously wrong with this group, apart from Fabrini they play like they are scared of their own shadows. For me it is something wrong with the belief that is instilled in them from a management point of view because they can't blame the atmosphere as we were all behind them until that s*** second goal!!

        @lionrampant: They clearly aisn't prepared to take control of games, behind the energy was sucked out of the when Wells got sent off. It was like there were all saying "ohh s*** we dont know what to do when we're actually expected to win".. IHs changes were too soon and too drastic, Hof was playing well and is a perfect foil when teams look up park the bus and that's the best I've seen Upson play in a long while so why take them off??? Also not sure why Harding was on the bench?
        We showed some good stuff in the first half and that's why it is so frustrating that the performance went to s***. They didn't show it on the to but Gueye should have scored in the first ten minutes, was put through after some cracking work by Fabbrini but his poor touch forced him to hit and hope...
        Sort it out Holloway!!

    We showed today why we are going down.
    Still no Home win for over 3 months ?
    We have lost to a ordinary looking Huddersfield with 10 men.
    Forde - We always expect a howler and he certainly made one.
    Beavers - Looked out of place and had poor game.
    Cummings - looked poor to me.
    Upson,Williams,and Jimmy just not good enough.
    Gueye - could not hit a barn door.
    Hoff - the worst forward ever.

    Fabrini - best player by a country mile.

    We have no pace,did not hurt them even when they had 10 men and teams get a easy game at the Den.
    Without a goalscorer we are doomed.
    So to sum up we have too many poor players in the team - end of.

          @nuffsaid: I actually feel we have become a stupid club, with idiots not knowing how to make money for the club!! Youth system down the pan, advertising down the pan...scoreboard situation is a joke...many other clubs with less finances than ours are doing better, because they have professionals doing things in the back ground as opposed to my mate Daves kid that did the sweeping up and now is in charge of marketing becuase he saw a video on YouTube. If we were a club that was making more financial sense then we would have the buying and signing power, but i feel that the club needs an overhaul from the top down.

    What a howler by Forde, but I bet he plays on Tuesday, no point getting the Spurs keeper in as Holloway won't drop that fool in goal!
    We got a left on loan from forest so what does Holloway do, play a centre back there!
    The HOFF is a joke, f****** useless!
    Fabbrini a nd Dunne( who I am usually critical of) the only two who put in a shift today, even Jimmy who is always a 7/10 was a 5 today!
    Personally think it won't be a bad thing to get relegated, as it's only gonna be the same s*** next season if somehow we manage to stay up. We can bring the decent youth players threw plus some of the good players we have.
    It might take us a few years to get back to where we are, but I think we will be better for it.

    Fear factor is still well alive and kicking, we looked bright and inventive and could and should have gone into half time leading, they go down to 10 men and it was like the players thought, we'll we have to win now, there's no excuse we could use, and this I think was the catalyst for the complete and utter abysmal display thereafter.
    I wish I could hear what IH was saying to them as I believe that when playing against a team with 10 men you should stretch them especially down the the flanks, if he was insistent that we go thru the middle then I'm afraid I've lost faith now, I'm not one to shout sack the manager but he need's to be very clear and tell us what went wrong I want a plain and simple explanation as to why we looked so very inept after the red card.
    Being a optimistic bloke I'm still hoping we can get a win on Tuesday and at least make today a bit more bearable, but after 8 fruitless trips in a row I'm beginning to think a home win will be as rare as a QPR away win.

    Scannell aside Huddersfield were a pretty poor team - but they were a team. They changed shape when they went down to ten men and never looked in any particular trouble and they had the better chances throughout the game. Millwall had eleven players on the pitch who could not organise their defence or their attack, they had no structure. Surely it is clear that Mr Holloway is just not up to the job.

    Forde's mistake cost the game today, it would not have done if the side had a clue, but it did. Forde is often beaten by long distance shots not just for Millwall but international games too - a timing or eyesight problem?

    tactically totally inept

    took of the wrong players - not enough patience to break them down

    why keep on abdou when you don't need him against 10 men - you need ball players - dunne showed again what a useless player he is - how many more times do we have to see his terrible positional play , control and passing - him, abdou and beevers behind the ball at 1-1 trying to set up play - they have no skill between them and too easy to defend against - dreadful thinking (if you can call it that) from Holloway) - as for Forde nothing that hasn't been said on here 1000 times : he is s*** - the forwards fuller and Gregory have no idea of how to play with one another - no system at all - woolford was utterly hopeless when he came on - they just sat back knowing we would f*** it up and it happened - there have been some low spots but perhaps the lowest under IH - at last we get a ref who does us a favour and he does not have the nous to organise his team to keep possession and build pressure - the game was screaming out for tonge to control the ball out of the back and take of abdou and dunne , and push beevers across , but know , get everything wrong - no apology , nothing - no admission of the level of the crisis - I stick with MFC regardless of the manager because they come and go, but unless we win one of our next two games I am not going to Fulham to witness such ineptitude - a total joke

          @dpendet:

          wrong - hof scored - he isn't great but occupies the CBs and creates space - he has his function -

          dunne has totally awful control and distribution; he cannot take responsibility for possession and usually plays the ball to someone in a worse position than him and when he is properly exposed to one on one situations he hasn't got a clue (see the 3rd goal) if any one thinks he is anything other than a league 2 player they don't know anything about football I'm afraid - never had one offer for him in 10 years to my knowledge, I wonder why?

    playing at home , the oppo down to 10 men - and you lose 3-1 - if you read about that happening to another club you would think f*** me they are in big trouble - and you would be right

    Firstly just because some of us dont s*** the manager off doesn' mean we are kissing his a*** and are blind. I wanted to see what Holloway could do with his own team and today has been a disaster.
    A decent first half display and Guye should have put us 2-1 up just before the break. After the sending off we really struggled which is a big worry. I thought that the Hoff was pretty useless and doesn't deserve to lead the line. I thought he got the subs wrong. I would of personally left Upson on and only changed a striker for a striker. Jimmy's slip when he had an easy pass on and Forde's howler were farsical. I would understand the club if they sacked Holloway but while he is still in the job I will continue to support him and the team because THAT'S WHAT I DO.
    Only consolation is the teams all around us losing.
    Off to work now and feel like s*** .
    Up The Wall.

      @wall2wall:

      that's fair but why carry on when you know something is so wrong - don't ignore cancer do we - catch it early - listen, we wouldn't have won at forest if they hadn't gifted us the chance - why should we win any game in the future - Answer this question- - WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME YOU SAW US OUTPLAY A TEAM ?

        @timchimes:
        But it doesn't look like they are going to sack him this season so might as well support him and the team . Definately going down otherwise.
        Stupid comparing ithe manager to a cancer that needs removing early. Bang out of order. I'm sure you could of used many more examples of identifying a problem and acting rearly rather than a disesae that kills people.
        And I haven't seen us outplay any team for ages because WE DON'T INVEST MONEY IN OUR SQUAD so it's no surprise at all.

    when the second goal goes in there was 16 mins plus 5 mins added as it turned out to play - 21 mins to get an equaliser - who on here thought we would? I didn't - that's how bad it is

    This cant be allowed to continue, and is Holloway the only person who cannot see that Alan Dunne is not a center half. Dunne's commitment cannot be questioned but we need a centre back a.s.a.p. today should have been 3 points. If we continue to put in abysmal performances at home we will get relegated.

    I am not one to come on here and knock Holloway but I cannot for the life of me see how you can play a right back at centre half and a centre half at left back and expect your defence to stand up to examination. Bonkers

    This is Holloway squad now so no excuses hold water. I do think that Forde needs a break to remind his hunger, but our only options are 19 and 21 years old academy keepers. They ain't ready. Loan an experienced keeper ASAP and drop Forde to the bench. It such a critical role and his confidence is in pieces.

    I dislike Holloway I think hes average at best and I cant wait for him to go.....however Berylson is more to blame as chairman...you cant buy good players on the cheap....to make a team of loanees and journymen is no good for anyone.....we need to BUY players and pay good wages to get good results then the crowds will go up and we can progress upwards....Berylson do the maths and maybe Rupert Murdoch will make you even richer

    I could list a number of examples of Ollie's ineptitude, the most damning of which is the results which speak for themselves. I thought we played well in the first half, despite the usual goal start we like to give teams. Yes, Forde's was an absolute howler which wasn't IH's fault directly, but indirectly, he has signed two goalkeepers, on top of Gerrar, none of which can be considered as serious competition for Forde. As limited as the Hof is, he caused problems yesterday and was laying the ball back for his team mates; so Olly takes him off. Beavers is not a left back, so Olly puts him up against Scannell, a player I presume we have watched quite often as we wanted to sign him. He brought in a specialist left back and leaves him on the bench? I could go on. I know we will not sack him and will continue to support my team, but don't ask me to believe that Olly is anything other than an egotistical buffoon.
