Millwall captain Craig: We go again against Peterborough

CAPTAIN Tony Craig feels the point picked up against Wigan continues “a good week” for Millwall.

The Lions drew 2-2 at the DW Stadium on Tuesday night to maintain their unbeaten away start in League One.

And Craig promised his teammates would bounce back after Will Grigg’s last-minute equaliser in a game in which the defender thought his side created the better chances.

"It's been a good week so far," Craig said. "The win at home was very important and to get a point against Wigan, it shows the character and strength we have in the squad.

"They're still unbeaten at home, and we haven't lost away so far.

"We'll come back from it, it's life. It's happened in the game but we will certainly be ready for the weekend."

Michael Jacobs gave Wigan a first-half lead but two goals in five minutes from substitute Fred Onyedinma and defender Mark Beevers put Millwall ahead.

Grigg, however, scored in added time to deny Millwall what would have been a hard-fought three points.

“It's one of those things," Craig explained. "The ball has landed right for him. It could have landed anywhere or hit anyone but it landed at his feet and he scored.

"It was a very good away performance. If you look at the stats, they had a lot of possession, although I don't think they caused us that many problems with the ball.

"I think we defended well, it was just unfortunate in the end that we couldn't hold on.

"We had some good chances tonight – they had the possession but I think as an away performance it was a good one.

"We're disappointed with the late goal but we go again on Saturday against Peterborough."

    For the team and the fans to come away from Wigan who are unbeaten at home thus far and be slightly disappointed with a point in the bag shows the progress we are now making on the field. The rebuild and Harris era has only really just begun and If the spirit and confidence in the team is high we will turn more possible defeats into draws and more possible draws into those all important wins. As TC says "we go again on Saturday against Peterborough".
