Ollie: Barnsley beating Charlton is "great result" for Millwall

©

IAN Holloway believes the pressure will mount on Charlton after their defeat to Barnsley last night, as the Championship relegation battle took another twist.

And the Lions boss claims his side are now better-placed than their south London rivals to beat the drop into the third tier.

Addicks manager Jose Riga said at the weekend that Holloway would rather be in his shoes as the two clubs scrap to stay up.



But Charlton lost 2-1 to the Tykes on Tuesday, blowing the survival race wide open.

"Charlton will be under pressure," Holloway said. "Their manager said that he would rather be in their position than ours, and how dare he even talk about us – it's just ridiculous.

"Barnsley winning is a great result for us. That pegs Charlton back – they have had all these games in hand but it hasn't got them anywhere because our form is as good as anybody's."



Assessing Millwall's remaining fixtures, Holloway said: "I would rather be us than Charlton at the moment because we're on a good roll.

"I have got a great record against Middlesbrough, Doncaster will be a tough game, QPR will already be in the play-offs and Bournemouth will be in or out of the top six by the last day."

        @joemetrezammit: Definitely a massive game for us, but if we are above Charlton and Blackpool by the time that game comes around then we are safe!!

        Everyone wrote Millwall off (including some of our own) and now we are showing what we are made of, Middlesborough are a quality side though but think we can definitely get 3 points up there!

          @conor: Still a strong side.... who do you support Charlton or Millwall? look at our form against any team in the bottom 7 and we are the team in the best form and we are playing without fear at the moment!!

    Could not agree more, now we need Millwall players to realise this and give their all. Get points at Middlesbrough and Queens P.R.

    In our current form, I think us and Barnsley have a decent chance of getting out of trouble, Yeovil/Charlton/Blackpool to go down!

      @glyngo: The Charlton players look fu**** and haven't got the balls for the relegation run in! They had a cup run just like we did last season and we was luckily saved from relegation last season.... I can't see these scumbags being lucky this year!

    Hate to rain on everyones parade but I still believe we'll be one of the sides to go down - yes we're on decent form but I fear its too little too late for us - Boro away is a solid game and so is QPR - don't think either game will return any points - I sincerely hope I'm wrong!!

    Gotta love Holloways rants though! "How dare he even talk about us" hahaa!

      @TheBermondseyBomber: What about Doncaster at home on Bank Holiday Monday? Definitely 3 points in the bag.....

      Anyway.... who thought we would have got anything from the games away against Derby, Forest and Wigan... but we in fact won those games and means we are still in with a shout of staying up!

        @Bradders: I like your optimism mate but I don't see us as having anything in the bag right now.... Hope you're right though!! That Donny game is huge then again all 4 are must win!!

        I agree we did very well to win those 3 games but then we've also drawn 13 and lost 20.... you can't expect to stay up when you're losing nearly half the games of the seaosn and conceding 72 goals in the process. can you?........... COME ON 'WALL!!!!!

          @TheBermondseyBomber: All I'm saying is don't write us off yet!! I'm a lot more optimistic after our recent form, in fact we have the best form out of anyone in the bottom 7 over the last 4 games!!

          The previous 30 odd games are gone now, yes our form was horrendous (couldn't score and couldn't defend), but now it's like watching a different team with bags of confidence who don't give up and for me that's what I've been waiting for all season!

          if we lost those away games we would have already been relegated..... but because we are MILLWALL and we fight til the end, it's all about the next 4 games and continuing the fight!!

    It's all still there to fight for after our last 4 results. I'm just pleased we've given ourselves a fighting chance. Any result last night wouldn't have been too bad for us. It's up to us now; if we beat Doncaster by 2 goals or more, we'll go above them on goals scored if we match their result on Saturday.

    Facts are that our position could look even better before we even play on Saturday if results go our way. There might be a massive incentive for the team in place if we can move up three places by beating Boro.

    Forget about what the other teams do it's what Millwall do that counts, we have to win at least three of our remaining games to be in with a chance of staying up, I think we can do it...just.

    This is how I'm looking at it, we are currently the inform team out of the bottom 7 teams. Most have 4 games left to play 2 have 5. So reset us to 0 pts with the games left and the table looks like this:

    Birmingham on 3 pts
    Doncaster on 3 pts
    Blackpool on 2 pts
    Charlton on 1 pt
    Millwall on 0 pts
    Barnsley on -1pt
    Yeovil on -4pts

    So we just need to manage to get 3 more points than a team above us, very achievable. My tip beat Doncaster!

      @MFC Lion: Given their run-in, I'd be confident that we will pass out Blackpool based on all current form. It might be wishful thinking but that Blackpool v Charlton game at the end of the season has the fate of a relegation play-off written all over it. From where we were a fortnight or so ago, isn't it just great to be in with a fighting chance?

        @lion.ie: Got to be honest, only a couple of games away, I couldn't see where our next win was coming from. It looked like we we're going down without a whimper. Like you say, it's a very pleasant surprise that we are still in there having a go.

    I think charlton playing blackpool last game of the season could be the defining one.

    Think it will go down to the last nerve racking minute of the last day.

    Got to get at least a point against boro but every point is critical now , let alone goal difference.
