STEVE Lomas was pleased with Millwall's performance in their 2-1 win over AFC Wimbledon but admitted his frustration at conceding a late goal.
Andy Keogh and Martyn Woolford struck in the second half to put the Lions in the driving seat before Luke Moore pulled one back in the 89th minute to set up a tense finish.
But the Lions saw out four minutes of stoppage time to progress to the second round of the Capital One Cup, with the draw for the second round taking place at 12.30pm on Thursday.
Lomas, who secured his first win in charge, said: "It's always pleasing to win, that's what it's all about – everything else is secondary. There were a lot of positives tonight but for a sloppy bit of defending on our part and maybe not being as clinical as we should have been.
"We passed the ball well, we moved it about and we created opportunities. Paul Robinson got 90 minutes for the first time in a long time, which was great for him because he has worked ever so hard in pre-season and it shows he is well on the way back to being the inspirational leader he has been for all these years.
"I thought the two full-backs did well – there wasn't a bad performance in the team tonight. It's just the little things, like seeing the game out and not making it so mad at the end, as well as taking a higher percentage of our chances.
"You have to pay Wimbledon credit because at 2-0 they could have caved it, but they kept going and forced the issue at the end.
"The application of the lads to do what I wanted was good. We have a bunch of motivated, honest boys that will give everything for the cause."
