Report: Millwall 1-1 Bolton

MARTYN Woolford struck his seventh goal of the season to rescue Millwall a point in their basement battle with Bolton.

The visitors went ahead when Lukas Jutkiewicz's header crept inside the far post, but the striker missed the chance to make it 2-0 when his tame penalty was saved by David Forde.

That spurred on the Lions and they levelled eight minutes from time when Woolford hooked in from a tight angle.

Millwall's starting XI showed four changes from the midweek draw at Yeovil, with Alan Dunne, Ed Upson, Lee Martin and Jermaine Easter all coming into the side.

The Lions made a bright start and controlled possession during the early stages.

In the seventh minute, home debutant Upson's floated pass found the chest of Morison, but the ball was cleared off the striker's toes by an alert defender.

During the next phase of the same attack, Easter hammered a shot wide of the far post.

Bolton took the lead completely against the run of play when Chris Eagles' cross was glanced beyond David Forde and into the bottom corner, via the post, by Jutkiewicz.

Seeking an immediate response, Millwall saw two efforts cleared off the goal-line in quick succession – first by David Wheater to deny Martyn Woolford and then by Alex Baptiste to thwart Easter.

There was a hint of handball as Wheater blocked Woolford's ferocious drive in the 31st minute, but referee Simon Hooper dismissed the Lions' penalty appeals.

On the stroke of half time, Steve Morison teed up Martin for a shot from the edge of the area, but the winger's effort drifted wide.

Morison headed over from Woolford's corner before Wanderers winger Chris Eagles' free kick came back off the foot of the post.

Boss Ian Holloway took the bold decision to make a trip substitution in the 56th minute, bringing on Simeon Jackson, DJ Campbell and Scott McDonald.

Two of the new introductions combined to good effect as McDonald stood a cross up for Campbell, but the striker headed over.

Alex Baptiste had a goal ruled out for offside after a neat exchange of passes before Scott Malone's wicked cross was diverted away from Jackson, who looked certain to score.

Woolford and Malone both went close to levelling in quick succession, but Danny Shittu's handball gave Jutkiewicz the chance to put the game to bed – only for Forde to deny him.

And moments later, Morison's inch-perfect cross was met by Jackson, and although Bogdan blocked the initial shot, Woolford was on hand to turn in the rebound.

Despite five minutes of added time, neither side could find a winner.

    Now looking bleak, anoraks and Barnsley with games in hand. Those two games I think will probably seal our fate.

        @bermlion:
        I agree completely. In spells today we played the best passing moves we have ever done in years. Had we scored first , we would've won 2 or 3.0
        Bolton getting that jammy header gave them something to hang onto.

    Shame.. At least we didnt lose again! Think were in big trouble with charlton having 3 games in hand they will improve at some point, if we go down hope fred and jack powell progress into first team next year how most teams in lower leagues win games if from there youth being fearless and usually pretty decent players! hope we get rid of 75% of our team next season whether we stay up or not!

      @SLloyd23: Could not work out today why Ollie played a left back as centre back when he has Jake Goodman ready to play in his natural position.What is the point of having our academy and not playing some of these younger players.Thats taking nothing away from Dunnie today I thought he played quite well but not playing players in their right position will get us into trouble against better opposition !

    All we hear about are missed chances, this is not good enough, the team is being changed every week and it seems to me that IH simply has no game plan except a wish and a prayer.

      @Peckhamlad: I agree with a lot of the comments - we tried a lot harder today and Bolton looked really poor. The points haul has been poor so far, but hopefully there's a win around the corner - preferably starting up at Barnsley next week.

      My biggest concern was the Barry Fry tactical approach to using all three subs at once, plus using four forwards again. I think it’s a big risk in games like this, one that very nearly went tits-up.

    Can everyboy stop flapping....we will stay up, fourth bottom will do....not ideal but maybe more of a spectacle thsn mid table nothing season, (although one of them will be welcome next year). Charlton might have a few games in hand but they have to win them .....we got to play them yet I cant see us losing that one.

    I take any even money bet that we stay up, payable by the ticket office the match after our fate is beyond doubt

    Oh How lucky can we get - Bolton far more organised than us - playing like Sunday team on Blackheath today, we are doomed to the big drop playing like today, Oh dear I thought we might be able to change with the manager change, but no way, still playing with no real confidence, making too many mistakes, handing the ball to the opposition time and again, woeful, dire, example of the team I've supported for the best part of sixty years

      @aeojt:
      Where you actually at the game today??? We outplayed Bolton all game! They had one shot in the first half which they scored but other than that we where all over them! 2nd half was a bit more even but we sill had the run of the game. Under Lomas we would have been stuffed but we looked good and kept possession and if not for some goal line clearances would have won! I'm getting p***** off with all the negativity at the ground and on here. Holloway took over an unfit and out of form team and has turned them into a team that compete in game now rather than getting stuffed every week. His new midfield signings look good and I agree his subs where a bit gung ho but it got us the equaliser in the end. Onwards and upwards I think. If we stay clear of relegation by 1 point I think Oly Has done a good job.

        @Barnylion: YES I WAS AT THE GAME.
        We out played ourselves, our organisation was poor, no cohesion, giving ball away etc. Bolton had a game plan and their organised defence frustrated us. Having possession don't mean your outplaying the opposition. Not my fault you seem to think I'm negative but I speak how I feel and if that's not what you want to hear, It Is My Opinion. I am not a professional but I want Millwall to win and only win to me a draw at home is disappointing, I'm well pee'd off with the performances this season, with players that on paper seem to be good, but in reallity aren't performing

    Good performance today Dunne had a great game at centre back upson and Williams run the midfield and looked solid 2 chances off the line and the possible hint of a penalty nearer the end from a handball!! The only thing I would say is IH needs to play 4-4-2 with Jackson and Morison up front we are not a 4-2-3-1 team keep it simple the football we played was attractive today so credit where credit is due we should have won! Bolton had 3 chances the goal the penalty and the free kick they had nothing to their game

    We have once again drawn against a team at home who are around us in league. I fail to see how we can be excited about this and full of praise for the players . It's a sorry state of affairs and we will be relegated. Even with 4 strikers on the pitch we are only scoring 1 goal a game and with our defence we will always give away at least one goal. Barnsley now takes on even greater significance but to look ahead as each game becomes more important puts more pressure on the players especially at home. Unfortunately it looks like some of them don't have the stomach for it. Relegated or not there needs to be a mass exodus of players close season. Unfortunately Holloway hasn't cleared out the dead wood yet. Despite that at least one or two showed some spirit today. COYL

      @southlondon1885: SL, you can't blame IH for all of the deadwood still being here.

      After all, Hoyte was signed after lomas and before holloway arrived.

      That for me tells you all you need to know.

      Only time and several years of passing will get rid of all of the deadwood.

        I was encouraged by today's performance as they passed a bit more than usual. I know IH isn't to blame. It's the board for appointing Lomas in the first place. I just can't get excited when we draw with Yeovil, Wednesday and Bolton. These are the teams we need to beat if we're to stay up which I don't think we will. The midfield is looking more encouraging now but still awful defence and strikers who can't score and even seem afraid to shoot. Still though COYL

    Just got home from the game, really good footballing performance and soe of the best play I have seen fro a Millwall team for months. Sure we had opportunities to score and failed to take advantage, but we were clearly the better side and Bolton were fortunateto come away with anything. Midfield three of Woolford/William and Upson were excellent and if the trio keep improving they will cause even the top teams big problems. We do need to be more clinical though, which is my only real criticism. shittu was his usual random event generator-self and Dunne showed composure on the ball fought hard at CB. Although he was outmuscled for the first goal and probably would admit that he should of had the cross covered, but still a good goal as there was no way the striker should of got that on target.

    Sometimes I think some people on here are willing us to go down... F**king hell, talk about 'glass half empty!'
    I thought we played some very good football today and you can see the confidence in our players coming back. We were far better in possession than on Tuesday and thought we were the better team overall today.
    Bolton may feel they were unlucky missing the pen- (would've been game over- if it wasn't for IRELANDS NO.1!)- but throughout the game we were all over em- and our work rate was better than the trotters. Also, I thought that Bolton were VERY lucky scoring their 1st and probably only, chance of the 1st half, against the run of play.
    They were saying that there was positives to take from the Yeovil game- (we didn't lose!)- but I was skeptical and a bit worried for today. But the lads came out fighting, and even after going 0-1 down, I still believed we could go on to win it. Let's not forget that although Bolton are on a poor run of form- they are still a big club and are no push overs... and we made those c**ts look bad today.
    We're still not at full strength, yet we are still moving in the right direction and the team are running themselves ragged! So come on lads, let's try and look at the positives- as opposed to dwelling on the negatives. WE CAN STAY UP! ... COYL MIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIILLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL.

      @Luke ColdBlow10: We have not been at full strength at all this season.
      Either unfit signings, injury prone signings, bad luck or dickheads who have no self discipline. Its no wonder we are in the s*** we are in. Its great that they all played well and played Bolton off the pitch for most of the game but at the end of the day it is just a point. Sorry to p*** on anyones parade but its points that keep us up not tippy tappy football. Only my opinion feel free to shoot me down.

    Very good performance, Freedman can go suck a lemon.

    Forde - 7, Probably "bored senseless" as he didn't have a save to make. Saved a penalty and tackled the bloke who tried to round him.
    Fredericks - 5, Our worst performer. Was brought in to attack but rarely got forward and seemed scared to go on the overlap. Very poor in the air.
    Shittu - 8 MOTM(1), Won every header (again). I'll have to see if he was at fault for the pen, could get reduced to a 7 *watch this space*
    Dunne, 6 - Not switched on for the goal, let the man get in front of him. Didn't have much to do but often let players run off him into the middle but he was out of position to be fair.
    Malone, 7 - Got forward often and was dangerous at times. Not a lot to do defensively. Worked his socks off.
    Williams, 8 - So composed it's scary, not seen a player like him in years. Can be a bit slow at times but knows how to pick a pass, vital tackle after Forde palmed away the bloke who tried to round him.
    Upson, 6 - Looked good sometimes but too slow on the ball today and made some awful decisions that could have resulted in a goal for Bolton.
    Woolford, 7.5 - Our top goal scorer played well, rarely lost the ball. Made some mistakes but that was only because nobody was moving or giving him an option.
    Easter, 5 - Unlucky not to score but largely anonymous. Not good enough for Championship.
    Martin, 6 - Battled well but has no end product.
    Morison, 8 MOTM (2) - Oozed class in the 2nd half. We need someone like him to play out wide because today we needed him both out wide and in the box & obviously he can't do both. Our most intelligent striker.
    SUBS:
    Campbell, 5 - Anonymous.
    Jackson, 5 - Should have got 2 but didn't, was lucky Wooly followed up to score after he missed a sitter
    McDonald, 5 - Very slow on the ball and not looking confident

    I think Williams and Upson had control of the midfield for very long spells.
    Bolton came for a point , got a lucky goal and parked the bus. We done extremely well today , some of the best passing and movement off the ball I've seen from a Millwall side in years.
    We're moving strongly in the right direction.

    Of course it's a worry that we only put away one of the 22 shots on goal but there's no doubt that we were far the better side today, and we played some excellent football at times. Woolford took his chance well - he had a lot to do, so well done Woolly. Morison played some really intelligent balls, and I agree with Alan F that we haven't seen the like of Williams in terms of composure at Millwall ... well, ever ! He and Upson played really well together in midfield which brings me to the one worrying note from today. IH said he wouldn't make the same mistake as he made against Leicester, being so gung-ho, and yet today with more than half an hour to go he brings on 3 forwards (combined height of just over 6 foot) and leaves the midfield nowhere near as organised as it had been. We sort of got away with it, and still played well, and no argument from me re substituting Easter or Martin, but why take off Upson who is a goalscoring midfielder anyway? God help us if we'd had an injury in the remainder of the game. Please Mr Holloway, fortune might favour the brave, but it doesn't care much for headless chickens which we could so easily have turned into.

      @waterloolion: agreed that Holloway got away with what looked a crazy decision on what? 55mins? To make all 3 subs at 0-1 and put on 3 strikers.

      Stupid move and I cannot see the logic in it. Had we lost he would rightly be getting a lot of stick for it. More often than not it is going to have the outcome it did against Reading.

        @MFC Lion: So what would you propose that Holloway does? He had to go for it as losing would have been catastrophic. Besides it makes no difference if we lose 1-0 or 3-0, our goal difference is so bad we cannot make up for it. I'd rather go 'gung-ho' and go for a point. If he didn't do it, and we lost, people would say that he should have done it. At 1-0 down, at this stage of the season, you cannot hope for a sudden goal, he had to make the change IMO.

          @harryfabian: unless it's still 1-0 and beyond 80 mins I would never think making all the subs and bringing on a load of strikers at the expense of the midfield was a clever move. It's f****** retarded in my eyes.

          At 1-0 on 55 mins we were the better team and it smacked of desperation. Totally ruins the team shape, has he practised this in training so the team can prepare? What if we get an injury in the remaining 40mins?

          Losing 3-0 is so much worse than 1-0 as the little confidence the team has is so fragile that another spanking from a s*** team like Bolton would just kill the team spirit IMO.

      @waterloolion: he changed the formation, hence the subs all at once. It was either 433 or 442 v narrow to start. After the subs he went 4231.

      Whilst I also think it was a little gung-ho, ultimately it worked, and I know it won't always.

      BUT, how many times have we screamed at ex managers to bring on strikers when we need a goal.

      And let's face it, our goal difference is hardly goons suffer if we concede another is it?

        @bonnie1272: Yes, by all means make some changes, and yes, we needed a goal, and like I said, swapping Easter, who didn't have a particularly good game, and Martin, who works hard but so far hasn't produced any end product, were fair changes. But teams score goals through balance, not by simply having more strikers on the field, otherwise let's just put ten on. We were on top anyway and controlling midfield - make some changes to the personnel, sure, and some changes to the formation if that seems appropriate, but with the people on the pitch after 55 minutes too many of them were playing in unfamiliar roles. I'm not suggesting you don't take any risks, but today smacked a bit of panic - even if, fortunately, we did get away with it! (If it turns out that Upson had taken a knock then I'll retract most of my comments!!!)
        On another point, I'm assuming Lowry will be back next week - Dunney did ok and Bolton barely created any chances, but Lowry and Shittu looked an altogether stronger pairing.

          @waterloolion: can't disagree m8. It would appear that IH despite his promises after Reading has not learnt.

          Personally I thought that goal would have come anyway.

          But I can 100% see your point on balance. We have none.

          In Ollie's defence, he hasn't really got any out and out wingers good enough in the squad. Which of course may be an oversight.

            @bonnie1272: Funny you should say that about the quality of our wingers, or lack of it. I turned to my mate while we were watching the game and said "how I'd love a Gordon Hill or Christophe Kinetic or Anton Otulakowski - or even an on-form James Henry!

    @AEOJT, cannot believe your comments mate, what game were you watching, I saw millwall players really working hard to win a game, we had two cleared of the line, we created some decent chances,I saw some very good performances from several millwall players including , Williams,real class in midfield with lovely left peg, Malone up and down,really give it a go, woolly,by far the best player on the pitch,covered every blade, Danny,solid,and when Ollie made the changes we looked really threatening.i can't think of any player who was poor. We deserved to win this one . People should not let the result colour their judgment of what was a very decent , whole hearted performance.

    Was in the big kitch upper today. Great to see the team got a good standing ovation as they left the pitch today, quite right too ,they couldn't have tried any harder to get a result, and it was good that the majority of the crowd recognised it.

    i cannot believe some of the negative post,s on this thread.
    we completly out played bolton in the first half,but the ball just would not cross their goal line,two goal line clearances,numerous blocks and a fair number of last ditch intervention,s stopped us from scoring.
    Upson,william,s,woolford all brilliant in mid-field.
    Im sorry but you people who are saying we did not play well are talking out your a r s e.
    what i would like to know is why upson was substituted if he was injured ok,but other wise it was not a good decision as we lost mid-field control and long ball crept in.
    Secondly we brought on three small forwards against a big back four,morison who i thought had a good second half as a right winger put in some great work and good crosses to our three short forward,s who did not a prayer against their big back four. as i have said in the past morison is our only big forward he should be in the middle not on the wing.
    the triple sub stitutions really unbalanced us and they took contol for a while,and but for forde we would have been dead and buried,so Im sorry IH it did not make sense to me.

    I would just like to remind people of one line in our song.
    COME RAIN OR SHINE ALL THE TIME OUR FAMILIES WE'LL BRING.
    So whatever the outcome at the end of the season bare that in mind because our beloved Millwall still needs us as much as we need them.
    COYL
    MIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIILLLLLLLL
