IAN Holloway said he was pleased with his players despite their 0-0 draw with ten-man Doncaster Rovers at The Den.
The Lions did everything but score after Abdoulaye Meiti was sent off for the visitors, who Holloway felt were galvanised by Fred Graham's controversial decision.
Holloway admitted the sending off was harsh and that it worked against Millwall.
"I am not disappointed at all," Holloway said. "I was pleased with the performance. Funnily enough the referee changed the course of the game – I don't think it was a sending off.
"At worst it was a yellow card. After that, the expectation of the crowd grows because you're up against ten men.
"That made it easier and gave them an excuse to sit in and I thought it would be a matter of time before we scored. I still can't believe that we haven't.
"But it's another step towards getting the players doing what I want them to do and we looked a half-decent side to be honest.
"Today's not a day to be disappointed. I'll only be frustrated if we end two points short, but I don't think we will.
"I'm delighted with the effort and togetherness.
"When I put Mark Beevers up front for the last eight minutes, we didn't have any players following up on the edge of the box so I was fuming about that.
"We didn't sort our personnel out. Too many of them looked disappointed and result-obsessed rather worrying about the process of scoring goals.
"I thought we were the better team and the stats will prove that, but well done to Doncaster for showing that kind of spirit, which they got from the referee.
"They felt aggrieved and the red card galvanised them.
"Our fans were completely brilliant from start to finish and I don't think they could fault my lads' effort. That's three wins and three draws and that's promotion form.
"Unfortunately, we're on the end of a mauling for three-quarters of the season but with two games to go we've given ourselves a decent chance of staying up."
