STEVE Lomas claimed a point was "no more than Millwall deserved" after they fought back from 2-1 down to claim a draw against Sheffield Wednesday.
Andy Keogh's 87th-minute penalty denied the Owls victory and handed Lomas his first point in charge of the Lions.
Lomas looked to be heading for a fourth straight Championship defeat after goals from Reda Johnson and Jeremy Helan cancelled out Kamil Zayatte's own goal.
But Keogh converted from 12 yards after Richard Chaplow was hauled down.
"The point was no more than we deserved," Lomas said. "We played football the right way, passing the ball well. The performance today was something to build on but we keep making it difficult for ourselves.
"Sheffield Wednesday are a big, physical side and they put the ball in the box. Unfortunately Stephen Bywater makes an error for their first goal but he more than redeemed himself with a save at the end.
"We started well but another couple of individual errors put us on the back foot. I've got to commend the boys' character to come back after what could have been another setback.
"They could have felt sorry for themselves but they kept going. The majority of the second half, apart for the last five minutes, was played in Sheffield Wednesday's half – we controlled the ball and looked lively.
"We should have had another penalty when Jose Semedo rugby-tackled Scott McDonald to the ground. I don't know how the linesman didn't see that one, but perhaps that was on his mind the second time.
"We've still only got one point but it was a great battling performance away from home and a good comeback. We could have gone under but the lads that came off the bench made an impact."
