STEVE Lomas dedicated Millwall's 1-0 win over local rivals Charlton to the fans – and once again hailed their vocal backing.
2,858 Lions supporters made the short journey to The Valley to see Scott McDonald's first-half goal secure back-to-back wins in the league for the first time since March.
And Lomas felt his players put in a performance that the visiting fans could be proud of.
He said "After the win and performance on Tuesday, we did not want to let that go. We had great support again and the fans were fully behind us.
"Like I said to the lads in midweek, when you produce that level of commitment and effort and desire, these are knowledgeable fans, they will appreciate it.
"You might not win every week but when they know you have pride in the shirt, and if you give everything on that pitch, they will back you win, lose or draw.
"You play football for the fans, and for you families as well, but ultimately you play for the fans. They get that appreciation and I felt the fans were well rewarded today."
Asked whether he enjoyed the win, his second in charge, Lomas added: "I don’t think you can ever enjoy it, especially when he [Simon Church] cut in from the left and had a shot.
"It is the satisfaction that the lads today have done their job well and been thoroughly professional. But tomorrow will probably be the first Sunday I can have a coffee and read the papers!
"There is a long way to go. In this league you see the margins, the first four or five games we didn’t really get much luck, whereas today you could argue we got a little bit of luck with the deflection.
"But I thought the lads earned it with the performance."
Lomas was also full of praise for winger Martyn Woolford, who produced a man-of-the-match display.
"He is a consummate professional," Lomas said. "Martyn wasn't in the team at the start of the season but he has gone about it the right way.
"He has worked hard in training to get back in the team and once he has got back in there he wants to say and that's really what you want as a manager. You want players with that commitment and drive."
