STEVE Lomas felt Millwall played their best football of the season in Saturday's 1-1 draw with Reading at the Madejski Stadium.
Liam Trotter converted a stoppage-time penalty to earn a well-deserved point for the Lions, who had been reduced to ten men five minutes earlier when Jimmy Abdou saw red.
Sean Morrison had given the home side the lead but Lomas' men were good value for their point – and could have had all three had Danny Shittu's disallowed effort stood.
Lomas said: "Football-wise it was the best we have played this season in terms of using the extra man in midfield and passing the ball. At times it looked like we were the home team so I was delighted with how we played.
"The penalty was a stone-waller. It was a great bit of sharpness by Scott McDonald to get in front of their goalkeeper and a point was no more than we deserved. We were probably a bit unlucky not to win.
"People stand up and take penalties and occasionally they are going to miss, but thankfully for us Liam is ice-cool and it was a great finish from him.
"It was a poor goal to concede from a set play again but we regrouped and hung in there. We got ourselves into a lot of good lexapro generic name dosage situations in the first half but the final ball let us down. But we were taking the game to Reading, we weren't sitting back and soaking up pressure.
"The second half was more of the same; the goalkeeper made a great save with his feet from McDonald and Steve Morison put one narrowly wide when you'd expect it to nestle in the net, so we thought it wasn't going to be our day.
"We had a man sent off and a goal disallowed, which was very marginal. Linesmen have a very tough job but we do feel we're not getting a high percentage of decisions.
"We are certainly providing entertainment and talking points! We asked the lads to back up a really good performance against QPR with a good away performance and I thought they did that – and more."
Lomas had no qualms with Abdou's dismissal, which was Millwall's fourth this term.
He said: "I can understand why the ref sent Jimmy off – there was no malice in it, but he was diving in because he was disappointed with his heavy touch.
"We've got to look at ourselves because it's another red card and it put us up against it. But all credit to the lads and the spirit they showed to come back and create one more chance."
