STEVE Lomas toasted Millwall's two picture-book goals against Leeds United – claiming they were worthy of winning any Championship game.
Martyn Woolford and Scott Malone put the Yorkshire side to the sword with well-worked second-half strikes to hand the Lions their third straight win on Saturday.
And Lomas said: "I am delighted for the lads. They were a little bit disappointed at half time, but this is what the Championship is all about – these tight, nip and tuck games.
"Have you got the winning mentality to grind it out and turn an okay performance into three points? The two goals we scored were worthy of winning any game and we hit the post three times as well, so I thought we thoroughly deserved it.
"Sometimes the lads underrate themselves – they are good players and I believe in them. If I thought that they couldn't pass the ball and play, I'd put two up front and we'd lump the ball forward.
"We're playing 4-3-3 and the two goals we scored will probably be as good as any others you'll see in the Championship this weekend. From that point of view, I was delighted.
"Keeping another clean sheet was another positive. When you get a team working hard for each other – and I include the whole squad in that – you can go that extra mile. If you don't have togetherness, you get found out so I was delighted with the collective effort."
Victory was Millwall's first at The Den in a Saturday 3pm kick-off since December 2012 – and Lomas admitted he was relieved to get that monkey off his back.
"That stat has been knocking around in every single press conference, so to get rid of that was good as well," he added. "We have got a chance to make it a really good week against Birmingham and Bournemouth now before the international break."
