Report: Millwall 2-2 Blackburn Rovers

MILLWALL twice took the lead against ten-man Blackburn but were denied three points by Josh King's stoppage-time equaliser.

Shaun Williams scored his first goal for the club from the penalty spot after Grant Hanley was sent off for pulling back Steve Morison to put the Lions in control.

But when David Forde failed to claim a corner, Michael Keane headed in the equaliser.

The hosts thought they had stolen victory when Simeon Jackson was tripped by Keane in the area and scored from 12 yards, but King poked in at the death to the disbelief of The Den.

Ian Holloway made four changes to the side that started against Birmingham in midweek.

Mark Beevers, Shaun Williams, Fred Onyedinma and Carlos Edwards came into the starting XI as Millwall lined up in a 4-4-2 formation.

The first chance of the game went to Millwall when Owen Garvan swung a corner into the box and Scott McDonald's powerful header was palmed over the bar.

Goalkeeper Paul Robinson made his second save of the afternoon in the fourth minute when he held onto Morison's downward header from another Garvan delivery.

Luke Varney should have broken the deadlock at the other end but Forde spread himself well to keep the striker's shot out.

Garvan hammered the inside of the post in the 15th minute before Hanley's free header looped over as both goals lived a charmed life.

Mark Beevers nodded over, Corry Evans sliced wide and McDonald stung the palms of Robinson as the sides traded chances before the break.

After a lacklustre first half, the game sprung into life when Morison was hauled to the ground by Hanley, who was shown a red card by referee Nigel Miller.

Having missed from the spot against Blackpool earlier this month, Morison handed over penalty-taking duties to Shaun Williams, who made no mistake.

McDonald nearly made it 2-0 when he cut in from the left flank, drove into a pocket of space and unleashed a swerving drive that drifted narrowly wide.

But Blackburn drew level in the 65th minute when Kean beat Forde to Craig Conway's left-wing corner and headed home.

Forde redeemed himself to deny Keane another goal with a full-stretch save before Jackson scuffed an effort straight at Robinson having been teed up by Morison.

Keane's reckless lunge on Jackson resulted in another penalty two minutes from time and the Canadian international swept his shot into the corner with confidence.

Jackson should have made the game safe when he was played through by fellow sub Stefan Maierhofer, but Robinson made a vital close-range save.

And that miss was punished when Tommy Spurr's long throw into the box caused havoc and King stabbed the loose ball into the corner to salvage a point for Blackburn.

      @les the lion: Jackson should've killed the game off with that one on one at 2-1....... perfect chance....
      Sounds crazy, but I still had a shred of optimism for the game today. Was thinking - 'just play the game lads, try hard - the pressure's off a bit now anyway and give us something to cheer about.....' - But NO.... Really saw a divide today between the players that give a f**k - and the players that don't......
      When you're gifted the lead - in those circumstances - with our position in the league demanding that we NEED to win games to have any kind of hope to stay up.... and we can't hang on to it for 5 f**king minutes against a s**t 10 man Blackburn side.... something is seriously wrong.
      TIME FOR THE BOARD TO MAKE SOME SERIOUS DECISIONS......................
      I like to be positive on here, but that f**king hurt today. Roll on next season and a fresh squad.

      @les the lion: You forgot - Can't score from set pieces.....!! Barring penalties of course! Maybe that should be our new tactic..... play for penalties....!
      How many corners or free kicks we scored from this season???? 1, 2 maybe....? Not good enough.

    despite the fact nobody I knew wanted to go today (with sense too), I still went to this game after the shocking performance Tuesday. Can't believe what I saw. Our defence shits itself everytime an opposition player crossed the halfway line, we have a target man up front who doesn't jump for headers, strikers who can't finish and a 35 year old the wing!

    Zero complaints about the result or refereeing for once, this squad just isn't good enough. Johnston's Paint Trophy Winners 2014/5.

    It doesn’t make it any easier, but I can’t remember another season when we’ve deserved so much to be relegated.

    The board needs to make some important decisions very soon. The current squad won’t be good enough to get us back up next season and we have a manager who’s shown in his 15 games that he’s all washed-up. I wouldn’t leave it till the summer - he has to go now before the demoralisation sets in any further.

    Millwall have ruined the enjoyment of going out on a Saturday night and just when you thought it couldn't get any worse, we lose against 10-men after scoring twice against them. We WILL be playing L1 football next season and I fear we will be playing L1 football for many, many depressing seasons to come.

    no pro holloway posts please, telling us all how better off we are because we are playing better football...the board have to bite the bullet and admit their mistake...i get the weirdest feeling lomas would have kept us up.

    If IH stays we have got at least two more wasted years in front of us, and chances are another relegation

          @tonytowneronthewing:

          he hasn't really brought in his own players as such - he has brought in players that were available, Jackson DJ Hof - as he said, who else is gonna come? Williams and Upson signed for peanuts , why would they be able to turn us around?

          The bottom line is he inherited a team shipping untold goals with defenders Shittu Lowry Robinson Dunne Beevers Smith who actually just are not good enough for the championship - he galvanised Shittu made him play much better and the goals stopped going in - then we get 5 injuries after Derby and he has to build again from his current crop of third rate defenders and of course they f*** up again , not clearing long throws etc - As he said today (and I am not defending ever thing he has done) there is only so much you can do - if those players can't get 11 men behind the ball for that throw in and either win the original ball or knock down , they have to take responsibility as players - I am not sure of the contract situation of robbo lowry beevers dunne but I would get rid of all of them - they rae mentally scarred and physically limited =- he couldn't have been expected to clear them all out - look at easter chaplow bailey - the squad is bloated with has beens , sick notes - he has tried to slowly change the personnel but the losing mentality is engrained

            @timchimes:

            admittedly some of your points hold water, but the problem I have is that regardless of what set of 11 players went out there, there is a complete lack of purpose, he does not have them working as a unit or playing with any belief, there is no structure, the basic core principles are non existant....there would be well organised reserve and youth teams out there who would have accquited themselves better and gave us hope for the future. I know millwall fans ...if we had losyt every game valiantly the fans would have clapped them off the pitch, millwall fans are some of the first to turn when things are bad but also will be the first to commend when there is homour in defeat....I am afraid that this is some of the worst dross ever served up by Millwall....I think that there would be universal agreement that any other manager had lost the dressing room. Holloway built his reputation on one good season at Blackpool......I think history will show an increasing dilution of his stock since blackpools promotion year. If you say he should not be judged too harshly at the mo because he inherited a poor team does that make it freedmans success that palarce got promoted...he soon got found out....we are stuck with him now because he would not get another job.
            Ask yourself this....if you could go back now to the lomas sacking , would you still give holloway the job

            We're midfield and top heavy so where is the new back four if what he inherited are shipping in goals?

            His gone for broke trying to out score our opponents and it's bit him in the a***! His even played Dunne at centre half and all the new midfield and forwards his brought in not got a goal between them..
            I can see jb thinking but his a fraud, his only done well with good teams that his walked into. I'm not one for changing all the time and hate it when clubs keep sacking managers, but his had long enough and backing from the board more than any other manager to get it right and keep us up, failed, sack, start again from fresh in L1

            @timchimes: yes you are right - he has been disappointing but I think the injuries after derby did not help - I think he does have a way he wants to play but the players aren't up to it and he has abandoned it for route one - Look, Fred seems like an automatic pick now - what does that tell you about the squad - Fred was our best player against Charlton; in a massive game the other players just couldn't make an impact.
            You are right we have an imbalance - for example when Malone is out we don't have anyone - - Williams goes there and we lose midfield - he got in bessone because who else? He has got in second raters llike Garvan DJ ,Edwards because he is hoping for a miracle from some pros he thinks he can trust because bailey chaplow martin etc are missing - we still have players like marquis who will never make the grade being recalled - that is not IH's fault - he should have gone ages ago - it is a total mess - strikers that miss open goals - don't forget we were shambolic under Lomas the games against Derby and Birmingham live in the memory - don't forget the game before he came was southend ; possibly the worst display in 50 years - we don't put in those types of displays now - who would buy any of our players? I think there is lots he could have done better but people overlook how bad the mess he inherited

    Can't even go down fighting. Abysmal capitulation. Another week another new formation and another new loan. This one looks like Liam Feeney in 12 years time, what will he give us that Woolford doesn't?

    Usually he puts 3 strikers on 50mins, when their biggest defender went off I thought it was crying out for Hoff, for once he keeps him on the bench til the last 5 minutes. I thought we were going to be handed the win despite our best efforts to f*ck it up, Jackson should have had a hattrick, but we still managed it. In our position, outfought by 10 men in midtable with nothing much to play for. We absolutely deserve relegation and we need to break up this spineless team.

    I didn't go today as I refused to support those players who don't give a t*** about the club and the supporters. Tuesday night was a disgrace and it sounds like today wasn't much better. We will be in league 1 next season and I doubt Holloway will stay. He'll make up some excuse about funds or direction and leave. I'm gutted about the situation but have seen it all before. There's no quick fix and we won't come straight back up. There will be people on here who will bleat about the team coming good and there's still a chance. Personally I stopped saying that after 6 games under lomas. Thoroughly peed off with the board, manager and players.

    The board must wear blindfolds if they cannot see how useless the team AND manager are. But the board are just as hopeless. The team and Holloway has to be cleared out with the exception of Fred and one or two others. I hope the manager goes over the summer and lets start afresh.

    I was pro holloway and thought he would turn us around but hasn't we have been leaking goals all season we needed new blood in the centre of defence and strikers how know were the net is and ford has gone backwards has gone back to flapping at every cross .but the rot set in last two Seasons when will didn't sign that marquee forward and last season when we missed out on wood the fa cup papered over the problems and those morons t the semi final put the club back years. Bad sessions at the start of the season appointing lomas and most of his signings. But still I will support the wall reminds me of the Peter Anderson says a team with no fight in them .

Done the same at palace, spent a bomb then f***** off. You don't kid me. JB overhaul needed soon. Good idea at the time after lomas shambles but it's not worked, wipe your mouth and let's have a fresh start with new man at the helm rid of the dead wood l1 champions please

        We will regroup and come back to much deadwood at the club and JB must applauded for his support but changes at board level and on the day to day running of the club and if lewisham Council doesn't want to back the club perhaps we should move and have a fresh start.

          Why do people keep banging on about jb and his support...he might as well be p****** in the wind...goddard still our record signing....dont tell me about big wages for loan signings because it is still way cheaper than proper investment in real team building....the parent clubs are probably still paying a lot of the wages anyway....who else jackson and hoff out of contract. When sonething is this rotten you have to question the chief...if jb is not going to put in serious development he should at least sell cheap to people with real passion who will rebuild the club properly and make it a viable propisition living within its finances. That way the correct foundations can be laid for a proper club run by people who care. My guess is he will be looking for an exit strategy anyway noe that the development opportunities have been quashed by lewisham

        shittu okay with someone pacy for one more season
        macdonald -if he can't be effective in L 1 then god help him
        bailey - might get half a season from him
        chaplow - 5 games
        marqis - sell to Northampton or welling

        as you say Malone Upson Williams Fred all capable of getting us back up - just need those other shrewd signings - quite possible - I think it would nice to keep Hof and Jackson if we could negotiate smallish wages - they would get results in L1 - need to start games regularly as opposed to these constant sub roles - I don't know why people are so pessimistic

    Disgraceful, amateur, gutless rabble. To think we let a goal in from a long throw yet again is unbelievable. I really hope IH leaves and saves us money. Better to lose face than face to lose in keeping the clown. Take your raisins and stick them where the sun doesn't shine - most of the so-called players' .....

    JB surely cannot believe for a moment this bloke will help us after the evidence of his eyes and the table? Massive clear-out needed incl manager but as to who comes in is anyone's guess - and where will the money come from? Terrible season and team - one of the most shambolic I can recall with both on and off the pitch farces. We should have strenthened the squad but instead got injury-prone journeymen and didn't offload the dross we still had. Claridge spotted very early in the season the 'experienced' players we had were good about 3 years ago but not any more.

    Holloway isn't going anywhere. However, I do think that JB will be off at the end of the season. No returns from the surrounding land. less gate receipts, less tv revenue and the mistake of gambling on us reaching the promised land equals a lose lose scenario and a bottomless money pit. He's put a lot of money in to date but he hasn't got where he is today by continually throwing money down a gaping hole. Whoever the new owner is will chuck out Holloway, most of the rabble that play for us wil be gone and then we can start to rebuild.

        @col: By all accounts, Millwall lose 5 million quid a year. Add that to what he's put physically put in ie: a ten million budget this season alone and I'd say he's chipped in pretty well. Businessmen need a return, normally based on 10% p.a. and that's with the security of holding the main asset, in our case Millwall F.C. With the drop imminent, nothing forthcoming from the surrounding land etc. I think he'll be on his toes.

          @NICKOLA: this explanation is simply not true - most clubs make a loss- the owners swallow it to a point and then a new owner comes in - look at Bolton Leeds qpr etc etc they all own fortunes - the owners won't see that money back - it gets restructured/written off like the bank debts we are all paying back - so JB might say that is enough but the precedent is there for people racking up much more debt than he has - they have big egos and big bank balances - for all his moneey he doesn't understand football or our mentality - I said after the Charlton game we had to announce cheap tickets for brum and Blackburn because people had seen enough, otherwise the gates would be poor - lo and behold that's what happened - the reactions of the board are always too late

            @timchimes:
            Can't argue with your sound points but IMO we need someone at the helm who is permanently in the UK or has someone competent steering the ship in his absence.
            We'll see in August who's running Millwall.
            My bet is that it won't be JB.

          @NICKOLA: nearly all clubs lose money.

          More of a hobby than a realistic investment.

            @MFC Lion: you are right - there is not a long queue of people waiting to fund us - if he does go I am not sure what happens - my bet is that he is a man of principle - I think he will see out the two years of IH's contract - if we get back up then it is all to play for - if we don't I think he may feel enough is enough

      @NICKOLA:

      NICKOLA...i do not doubt your word, and will bow to your greater knowledge, but could you enlighten me on these funds that jb throws at our club with wild abandon.. I assume we generate some income from merchandise gate receipts tv etc and whilst I can appreciate we masy run at a loss, I do not think anyone would look and think that Millwall have the appearance of a club that benefits from a wealthy benefactor

        @tonytowneronthewing: We do generate funds from the sources you mention. It's not enough. That's why he-or anyone else- has to put his own personal money in to keep us going unless you really believe that Millwall are making money. If we were actually making money with gate receipts, tv and merchandising etc I'd consider buying the club myself as would anyone with a financial background. Obviously we're losing money based on an average of 9,000 per home game.
        Wild abandon? Well, other posters say it's his hobby, he's on an ego trip or he has money to burn. All could be true. My point is that there is soon to be an end to it.

          @NICKOLA:

          All points noted...the point remains that surely any investment should be commensurate with the size of the project to be funded...the signs are that the level of funding he has attributed above running costs is woefully inadequate.....he has reaped what he has sowed....while I could muster a respectful nod to his efforts I could not eulogise as some do portraying him like a messiah

          Rich american flies in every now and then ...presiding over possibly the worst passage of millwall in my living memory.....i dont trust his motives

            @tonytowneronthewing: I don't trust him either Tony. I don't trust anyone who hasn't got a vested interest in Millwall rather than seeing it as an investment or 'fun money'. The problem is, how many people do you know that have those virtues and who have the capital ? I know no-one. Investing in English football can be lucrative, there's no question about that, but only if you can see the right opportunity, and can foresee a profit. The recent failed takeover attempt at Leeds , albeit appealed, from an Italian who probably has never been to Leeds-but given their attendences-can see a money making opportunity.
            I once bought a house in Eltham. Nobody else would go near it because it was empty, the owner had done a runner, the garden was overgrown, the inside was filthy and it needed a total revamp. Sound familiar?
            I bought that house because I saw an opportunity and it paid off ultimately. It worked because I knew what I was doing.
            The only way forward for us is not to have a wealthy benefactor who continually makes poor hiring decisions, and leaves the operational side of things to someone as inept as Ambler and the rest of the board. The way forward now is to totally gut our Millwall of this lot and get some fresh blood in at both boardroom, management and squad level.
            If you know anyone who fits the bill then let me know because I don't.
            What we are going to end up doing is amalgamte with Charlton, build a new stadium in the Greenwich peninsular and get 30,000 for a home game. Then, we might move forward. As it stands, we're going backwards at an alarming rate.

    After today I have to say we are candidates for the drop again next season at this rate, dire, woeful to say the least, everyone at the club, board down to the general dogsbody (if we have one) need to take stock of their actions within the club.
    Teams on a sunday morning at the local park teams show more fight and relish to get that win at the end of the game, than this current shower of Sh1te, the worst team in 58 yrs of support
    Well on the bright side we are the strongest team in the divi. supporting everyone else, gotta put a smile one my face somehow

          @NICKOLA: yes I know we all speak slightly tongue in cheek on here but I think IH is most prob a good judge of a player actually and if he is allowed to let the majority of this squad go he will bring in better players -

          I think because he is unorthodox he has the capacity to upset some players - I think that is why he either does well at clubs or s*** - there doesn't seem to be any mid table mediocrity with him - people say he hasn't achieved but they forget how well Blackpool played in the first half of the premier league season - they were alsmost safe by xmas but a small squad and IH refusal to compromise his playing style caught up with them - I remember them beating Chelsea I think and leading United with minutes to go - he is all or nothing and hwn that nothing goes wrong it looks horrible - hthe big point is that he lacks flexibility but he can certainly get teams to play well and win - we have been in far worse situation than this

    We were absolutely superb today.
    Forde and Lowry were our best players.
    Morison was unplayable.
    Referee was a c***.
    Holloway is so unlucky!

    In case you couldn't tell, all of the above is a pisstake. Abdou the only player who did well today.

      @harryfabian: @lukesmithmfc:

      we aren't that terrible otherwise we wouldn't have hit the post, scored two, missed a one on one - there are short memories at play - when KJ came we were terrible - only 5 years ago - that was dross - bottom 4 of L 1 - this team lacks belief and a bit of quality - look at the teams we have played recently leeds brum Blackburn Charlton - are they really that much better than us - all I hear on here is how s*** every team we play is - well really , can that be ? what it means is a lot of sides in the C are ordinary and beatable and with minor differences we could beat them - I never understand why views are so extreme - the reality is there are small margins at play , like defending long throws against Leeds and Blackburn - when you are fired up and playing well you deal with those - when you have no confidence players don't want to take responsibility - so below average defenders like we have look s*** because they are not playing together - that is essentially what KJ could do and has done at Wolves, organise and get everyone playing for each other - but ultimately class tells and if you don't have players with the ability/skills you begin to struggle

        @timchimes: so you've diplomatically answered your own question tim, "ultimately class tells", which I've said for a while, just not as diplomatic as yourself.
        Lets make no bones about it tim we've been down for months, since december we've played against the bottom 8 or 9 and the same teams were in reach, we've recorded no wins against those teams, for example, leeds had 1 win in 8 prior to our game, they beat us and go on to lose their next 2. Birmingham beat us after recording no wins in 7 and go on to get spanked in their next game to a struggling watford side. We deserve to go down simply because of our results against the teams around us.
        The so called narrow margains are too big an ask for our squad to put right.
        Enough of defending this bunch, they're not good enough and do not deserve defending.

    I was always for IH and still think he's one of the best in the championship. But mfc are not good enough. Name me someone will stay long term and do a better.

    I blame KJ SL and maybe IH

      @millwallgracie98: If you really and truly think we are not going down, then you must think we'll win at leeds. Put some money on it then.
      We were down 2 weeks ago, a week ago,on Tuesday and today.
      A lot of positives? The only one I can think of is that today's result is finally going to put us out of our misery.

      @millwallgracie98: 1pt is certainly better than none but we need to WIN games! Check that league table still 2pts behind Charlton who have 3 extra games.

      Why on earth do you think we are not going down?! Has DJ told you something you'd care to share as I'll be straight down the bookies.

    Abdou was MOTM . Rest especially the defence could Not handle it. The only Good part, was that he rightly Dropped Robbo And Dunne.
