MILLWALL manager Ian Holloway believes his side have "tiny, tiny margins" to make up against Yeovil Town tonight after their 3-1 defeat at Burnley.
Holloway called on the Lions to be "brave" following their loss at Turf Moor and recognise the positive aspects of their performance, despite the result.
The trip to Huish Park on Tuesday starts a vital run of games for Millwall, who face fellow strugglers Bolton and Barnsley in their following two matches.
"We've got three fantastic games coming up and we need to get some points out of them," Holloway said.
"Given the way we started at Burnley, did I think we could take all three point? Yes I did. We need to build on parts of our play – we played very well in spells and deserved to score first.
"My defence kept Sam Vokes quiet, he didn't have a kick really, but Danny Ings is in great form and should be playing in the Premier League I think, and he did his thing.
"If we put in a similar standard of performance against other teams, I'm confident we can put a run of results together. I've got to pick my lads up and fire them up again.
"The players had Sunday off and came in bright and breezy on Monday morning. I watched the Burnley game back and for the first montauk-monster.com/pharmacy/zovirax 30-odd minutes, I was pretty pleased with it."
Holloway, entering the fifth week of his reign at The Den, admits he is still ironing out small but important issues.
"I couldn't get a message on at the end of the Burnley game to change my tactics," he said.
"I wanted to drop Steve Morison off, put three him up front, not with him in it, and let him flick the ball on. That's all I wanted but I couldn't get that message on.
"I sent a substitute on with it, and all of a sudden Morison was on the right. This is just how difficult it is when you have new faces – it's not excuses.
"That's just the way things are going for us."
The Lions boss also cited the slow reaction of his players to Ryan Fredericks' deflected cross which came back off the crossbar.
"I was fuming with that because as it came back out, we didn't knock it in," he said.
"Scott Malone was so far off of Michael Kightly that they actually had another attack. We should have pinned them in, put it back in the box and we might have got a second goal.
"These are tiny, tiny margins – we're talking two or three yards – but when it's going well for you, you believe in those things."
