STEVE Lomas was pleased with Millwall's performance despite their 2-1 defeat to Nottingham Forest in the second round of the Capital One Cup.
Andy Keogh cancelled out Matt Derbyshire's opening goal to take the tie into extra time, but Jamaal Lascelles restored Forest' lead and Billy Davies' side held on to progress.
And whilst Lomas was again left frustrated by the Lions' sloppy defending of corners, he was pleased with the overall standard of the display.
"I thought we played very well again and we've come away with nothing when we should be sitting here in the next round," he said. "When you're the away team and you have 16 shots on goal, you're entitled to think you should have got something from the game.
"I was happy with how we played. We had more shots on target than them and that's a good stat for an away team. There were a lot of positives, it's coming, and I just want the lads to believe in themselves.
"I'll have at least 40 clips of good play to show them tomorrow, we've just got to cut out these mistakes. They tried to knock the ball around and matched a very good Forest team."
When asked about Millwall's achilles heel this season – conceding goals from set pieces – Lomas said: "We designate roles and responsibilities to the players before the game and once they're out on the pitch, they've got to implement them.
"Five of our goals against have been from set plays and that isn't a good stat."
