Lomas relieved as Millwall hold on to claim win over Wigan

STEVE Lomas praised Millwall's resilience after his side dug deep to hold on to a hard-fought win over Wigan at The Den.

The Lions withstood immense pressure from the visitors after James McArthur's 84th-minute strike made the score 2-1 and gave the Latics a hope of snatching a point.

But David Forde made a stunning injury-time save to claw Leon Barnett's header off the line as Jermaine Easter's third goal of the season proved to be the winner.



"It was a great save from Fordey," Lomas said. "Martin O'Neill was in the stands and Fordey is a big show off! He made a couple of good ones in the first half. We know what he's all about – he's a big player.

"We like to make things hard for ourselves. When we went 2-0 up I thought the game had been put to bed, but they get a chance straight away and score. After that it's only going to be one thing – the Alamo.

"We rode our luck at the end but it was always going to be a backs-to-the-wall job after they got one back. They put it in the box and tested us, but Fordey came up with a big save and there were some good blocks, tackles and clearances.



"You just hope that you can withstand the pressure and we did."

Steve Morison, who also scored against Nottingham Forest in midweek, gave the Lions a dream start when he fired in the opening goal in just the second minute.

"After a good performance on Tuesday we didn't want to fall flat – we wanted to put in the same level of performance and hope that would carry us to a victory," Lomas said.

"We started off very well and it was great to score from a set play as well. We had one come off the post and Liam Feeney was unlucky with another drive, so we were certainly well in the game.

"I thought it was unjust that we didn't win against Forest and it would have been equally unjust had we not got the three points today.

"That's seven unbeaten at home. We looked at the stats from last season and our away form was much better, so it's been a bit of a role reversal. It's a challenge for us to improve on the road."

Lomas hailed the attitude of goalscorer Easter, who has been left on the bench in recent weeks.

"Jermaine has been slightly unfortunate – as have a few others," Lomas said. "He's a model professional and even when he's left out of the team, he just gets on with it.

"We've got Waghorn going back after the Blackburn game so we'll be down to four strikers and everyone will have a part to play."

Lomas dedicated Millwall's win to video analyst Dan McLoone, whose father Con sadly passed away last week.

"It has been a tough week for him," he said. "Dan lost his father on Friday night. He is a top man and we felt we had to beat Wigan for him."

    Oh and Steve there are always going to be some unfortunate players who don't get as much match time when you have a squad as large as ours.

    wrong stuff out of lomas' mouth - the point is, why did they score straight after us? why did we go deep and let him run that far - also why then has it got to be the Alamo - why can't faced with 5 mins to play out can't we keep the ball and play with composure

        timchimes - totally agree - as a well known Forde doubter I thought the save in the first half was as good as I have ever seen down the Den and his tip over in the second was top class and he was my man of the match. BUT the goal was awful, we cant keep giving away goals like this, he was like an old lady chasing a lost cauliflower down the aisle at Tescos.
        How can he react so brilliantly one minute , yet these bobblers from outside the box always seem to beat him - I have seen this so many times from him and usually just before half time or just after they have scored.
        Surely these so called coaches can help him get those divers boots off and work on his concentration, positioning, balance and reactions and get him down quicker to anything close to him. I really think there is a decent goalkeeper in there but he keeps letting himself and us down.
        Come on Millwall help the guy and set him free to be the good all round goal keeper he could and should be!

            What a good thought - it may be something a simple as that and like many folk he may not want to publicly let on that his sight is deteriorating with age - a goalkeeper with Glasses !! And Millwall are too stupid to insist he has an eye test and help him with contacts or something. It would explain why he is ok close in, but late in a day game, in fading light he seems to have trouble picking up the flight of the ball and under lights he has trouble with high crosses. Are you looking at this Millwall Medical Team!!

    a win against one of our bogey teams is always sweet.they are still a good side with lots of premiership money still coming in nicely for them and their league position is a surprise.deepest sympathies to our video analyst. david forde to me is the best goalkeeper in the championship,and could easily slot into most premiership clubs.i think martin o neal was there also to see not only forde but danny o shittu,and jimmy abdoulligan.

    Jesus, some of you are unbelievable. Moan when we lose and when we win!

    So what if we had to hold on, we were playing a team just down from the prem and managed to get a much needed win.

    Only had 5 of them so don't start getting pissy that we only managed a narrow victory.

Sick of it! Whingy f****** b*******!About time they all got on with it and gave some encouragement to the team! Understand that Lomas isn't a fan favourite but for f*** sake let the bloke do what he needs to do! Arm chair managers who have nothing useful to say can start getting off at the next tube stop as far as Im concerned! This is MILLWALL and if you don't like it.........do one!

      @MFC Lion: its not about moaning - I understand fully how difficult it is to compete with some of these teams - the problem is if we can't find a way of keeping the ball better then we will be in the bottom 5 - yesterday was similar to how Jackett used to set up - get it forward or wide with little quality , bypass midfield and then scrap and feed off that - as we saw with Jackett that football is unsustainable - the other teams are better than that - when we get a lucky win appreciate that fact - that's how you learn - people are cheered by WHU's position , but they are where they are because Sam also plays old style long ball pressure football and it isn't good enough these days- I am not expecting Zidane in midfield but just players who are happy to put their foot on it and pass it 10yards

      @MFC Lion: Yeah a much needed 3 points, but still the worry at the end , because we still can not close out a game and that also applied last season under KJ, and I have not got the answer, but we are slowly moving away from trouble.

      I think the next stage once safe is to be play a more expansive game, we can also help with that by turning up in greater numbers.

        Agree. Forget about Henry. He's got an ego the size of a cathedral and will go the same way as another winger- A certain Mr.Martin- who decided that Millwall wasn't good enough, and at 26 yrs old is now plying his trade at Dartford.
        If we are going to sell players, and it now looks like Lowry, Feeney, Henry and Wright aren't in the plans, then Waghorn can be bought out of the proceeds. I think it's time for Lomas and the board to decide who is staying and who is going. Whilst they are at it, they need to cement some contacts for the likes of Forde and Trotter.
        Oh, and we need a new centre half.

          @NICKOLA:
          I don't give a flying fig about Henry's ego - he is easily the most effective and for all the complaints most consistent winger on our books and we should try and get him back on board.
          Having said which I was very pleased to see the often written off Feeney put in a good, solid performance today which included pulling Dunne's nuts out of the fire on several occasions. I don't think we should let him go either.
          And Lowry is actually quite a good centre half who has been doing his best to act as a replacement full-back for far longer than is good for him or the club.
          I'm not even sure about Wright for that matter - I'm not convinced there's a fag paper between him and certain other midfield makeweights (and yes I do include Chaplow in that) so if they might bring in a few extra bob on the back of their reputation and/or have higher wages I'd shift them first.

            The only thing I agree with you on is that Lowry is a centre half cos he's not a decent left back. We have three centre halves. It's a matter of opinion but personally I think Shittu is ok as a back-up but no way should he be starting. Not against some excellent Championship forwards. Beevers looks composed and is our best. Robinson is not the player he was but interestingly, he keeps Shittu on the bench. Either we try Lowry at Centre half or get a new one in. There's a long way to go, look how we missed Beevers when he was injured. If any tinkering is to be done come January, then the centre half position needs addressing urgently.
            I'm not a big fan of Abdou either, though under Jackett he was used as a man to man marker with some success. When Bailey is fit he will oust Abdou as it looks like Lomas has finally gone with a 442.

    Worth mentioning how good Feeney was today. Superb tracking back and won us a few free kicks with his pace. Not a bad delivery on him either. Let's hope this start (not sub) will give him some confidence going into the next few games.

      Or, he's in the shop window and knows it. We've had some mustard wingers over the years, Allder, Hill, Carter etc. It's a different game now I accept that, but in all honesty, can you really say that Feeney is a Championship level footballer? Have a look around at what we're competing with at this level. If you think he is then he'll attract a multitude of clubs all vying for his signature. Or not, as the case may be.

          Hill was the best. Carter was excellent and Towner not far behind. Otulakowsi ? I remember him vividly. I recall a dive at the Old Den when I thought he was going to get sent off for diving but to my amazement the referee gave a penalty. Not bad considering he was fouled on the half way line. Oh....To have wingers like them now. What atreat that would be.

        @NICKOLA: What more can the lad do? If he plays well then he's "only putting himself in the shop window" and if he's playing bad he's "sulking about leaving Bolton". Give the lad a chance I say because he's the best natural winger we've got given Henry's gone and Martin's injured all the time.

    All the top teams in the prem and Europe are playing a 4 5 1 / 4 3 3. It gives you three up front when attacking and 5 in midfield when defending. I credit Lomas for aiming for the sky but we don't have enough quality in the wide areas. That system expects Martin, Waghorn, Easter etc to play as wingers in defence which doesn't work.

    He has seen the error in his ways and the classic Millwall 4 4 2 is working now. It's taken a while for to mix things up but I think Lomas has been doing the right thing. He's trying to make us play like a Prem team, which hasn't worked.... But at least he had a go.

    Good win. Let's get behind the team AND our manager

    Fantastic performance against a team that had the majority of possession, we look a lot better using 4-4-2, lets hope that we build on this with a result at Blackburn. Was a bit unsure about Feeny coming off but at least Keogh started the move for the second goal. After the display at Leicester great response and effort to get 4 points in the next two games.

      Always saw possee as a striker myself. Anyone remember Chris 'The Lip' Kelly who we signed from Leatherhead after they had a great cup run. Think he lasted 4 games from memory.

        possee was a winger, played out wide right , with number 7 on his back, in the days when the number you wore depicted the position you played. yeah i remember chris kelly, like most players we sign, very good till they come to us, then two bob

      @bordersarebest0170: I'd give my right nut for Derek possee and Keith weller , just an opinion ! Glad about yesterday but we are a long way from mid table safety , I think Morrison and McDonald will work in a 4-4-2, but there's a lot of sides that are going to pass it around us I'm afraid , I don't think we've seen our last hiding yet.

          @Peckhamlad: One of the best goals ever scored at the den.
          bolland on the edge of our own box,flicks on to bridges.
          bridges flicks it on to posse.
          posse fires a shot into top right hand corner.
          malcolm allison made it his goal of the season.
          posse definately a winger.
          and how about joey broadfoot.

            @jim1222:
            In his first spell Broadfoot was excellent - not so much the second time round, although he still got his fair share of free kicks by running straight into some poor mug minding his own business and IIRC he scored a few. Typically enough though the best game I ever saw from him was when he tore us apart at Portman Road a few months later!

    Good win!!!! For the players!!!! NOT LOMAS

    Am i really seeing what i'm seeing???

    There really are some simpletons on here??? "we won and your still not happy" what a load of b*****!! Same bread as the "kick it in the goal" mob....

    We have had a miserable start to the season, and really have rode our luck... Yes we have had a couple of good results but plenty of relegated teams have a few good results over a season.... we have thrown away 2 nil leads and have been smashed all over the park in other matches.....

    Im not negative, as i'm behind the players fully but these "easily pleased" we win one week their happy loose next week there not happy wally's get right on my nerves.... The same bods who moan when we try to keep the ball and pass it across the pitch....

    "kick it up there"
    "kick it in the goal"
    "kick it"
    "go forward"

    Cant stand people who know nothing about football..... Lomas needs to go and any real football person knows that!!! I like him and his ideas but i'm not prepared for him to risk relegation doing so.....

    We have a great squad of players we need a man manager to get them working 100%....

    Unless we get 10 points out of the next five i'm not changing my mind... at least you lot can see im not one of them p***** who changed mind because of one scrappy win held on by our teeth and fordes gloves..... not forgetting he's gone in Jan also haha

      @JONO: no one has said we played great and won convincingly but the 1st thing to take from the game is that we go the 3 points.

      Given where we are in the table and the rarity of us winning for some on here to go straight into a moan about hanging on for a win, poor passing etc is to miss out on the glaring positives that we did win and did hold on.

      Im far from a fan of lomas and he has a long way to go before I will be convinced he is up to the job.

      However when he does get it right and brings on Easter who scores the winning goal he and the team deserve some praise, No?

        @MFC Lion: ohhhhhh come onnnnn bringing on fresh legs in the attack is no genius.... i hear people screaming bring on easter in the last 20 mins every week????

        Im happy we won and i'm positive but you mentioned he has a long way to go before your convinced?? That long way might be too long and could get us relegated..... Plenty of decent managers would love to come in and manage our squad....

        I wanted Easter on in stead of Keogh in the Barnsley game?? Am i a genius as it took Lomas two games later to do same thing??? Bringing on a speedy forward in the last 20 or so minutes is simpleton tactics....

        But hey "we wonnnnnnnn" i hope he proves me wrong and we win next two on the trot.... but to be fair i'm not numb so one win does not make me think "yippie Lomas we love youuuu" like it does to the "kick it up there".....

        One other thing am i the only one who thinks Bailey has not done much but always stays in the team.... Not one game i have watched has he retained possession that well, don't get me wrong i can see him trying to pass it about now and then.... against Barnsley he seemed to put in a few more hard tackles but he does not seem very interested and Lomas seems scared to drop him....

          @JONO: no you're not a genius. I've also wanted Easter to play more as I think he is more likely to score for us.

          My point is Lomas gets slated for not making changes and then when he does something right he also get slated because it's so obvious.

          He's basically f***** whatever he does, we could have won 5-0 and some would have looked for faults in the performance. Why only 5?! Why did he take so and so off at 4-0. Moan, b****, moan.

          Trust me when we lose or throw away 2 pts and play poor that's when I have a go at lomas and the team.

          I've not been overly impressed by Bailey so far but he's certainly not done anything worse than the rest of the squad.

            @MFC Lion: Very true mate but lets have it right like you said he's f***** no matter what he does.... If it was a 5-0 emphatic display then i would be optimistic on the next game.... I think the fella played 4 4 2 because of Bailey being out... fluke again like Malone and Woolford...

            LETS HOPE THINGS GET BETTER.... Im not convinced just yet

      @millwallphil: I think its to do with refusing to ever wear a poppy. I also heard he answered a comment on Twitter that showed him in a bad light regarding the issue. Don't know for certain as i don't use it.

    Great result shame that we had two millwall teams, 1st half great and the inevitable 2nd half millwall team,backs to wall allowed Wigan to play,players not giving 110% there's a fine line between winning and drawing and we nearly paid the price,great classic 2nd goal counter attack shame about there goal under a minute,and we saw the best of Forde and the worst,beaten again from distance with no venom in the shot,but in stating that why was he allowed to run where's the tackles that's so dissapointing.
    Defo put us supporters through it but 3 vital points and a happy weekend not been many of them.

    everyone has noticed the great save ford made at the death to push that header over, but no one has picked up on the defending, the wigan fella lumps a ball in from all of 40 yards out, and their bloke is the only one who jumps to head it, we had defenders all round him but not one gets of the floor and jumps with him even though it comes from way out and lumped in high,they just stand watching, this happens every week, i don't see it happening much up the other end

      @bordersarebest0170: Not getting off the ground,and giving the opposition free headers has been happening all season,if you look at all the goals against us on the millwall website a good many have been scored against because of this.
