IAN Holloway described Millwall's dramatic 3-3 draw with Wolves as the most exciting game of his 18-year career as a manager.
The Lions, facing ex-boss Kenny Jackett, were 3-0 down after 64 minutes but Lee Gregory pulled one back before Ricardo Fuller scored twice in five minutes to rescue a point.
In the final minute of added time, Shaun Williams was sent off before David Forde made a full-stretch save to prevent Bakary Sako bagging a last-gasp winner for the visitors.
Holloway praised the never-say-die attitude of his players following an absorbing contest at The Den – and was relieved to come away with a point.
"It is probably the most exciting game of football I've ever been involved with," he said.
"I had one against Cardiff when I was at Plymouth which finished 3-3 after being 3-0 down.
"But I can't believe how we were three down to be honest. Again that is three or four shots they've had and everything is going in.
"The club rewards bravery, honesty and loyalty and I thought my players stood there to a man and kept going.
"When you are two or three down it can be really tough, but I’m proud of the lads.
"They earned their money today, they had a right go for us, they kept digging, they were brave and they kept wanting the ball.
"They also understood the new tactics we tried to employ and it got us back in it.
"It's a point, it is another point on our run and it could have been awful, couldn't it?
"As long as you have got that fight, as long as you have got that spirit, then you epitomise this wonderful football club.
"The whole weekend now I can try and enjoy and try and get a win at Wigan, which we managed to do last year when everybody wrote us off."
Holloway's substitutions paid off as Lee Martin created both of Fuller's goals.
"A switch of tactics, a switch of people helped us," said the Millwall boss "It is nothing to do with the ones who were there before but it helped us.
"We had a lot of chances. Jimmy Abdou had a great once – as good as any chance they had, probably better to be honest.
"Gregory has ended up missing one that he probably even now doesn't know how it went over.
"Scott McDonald has hit the post with another brilliant move.
"Have a look at it yourselves, Gregory should have had a penalty and he didn’t give it and they were 3-0 up.
"I am thankful it has ended in a very positive way because my team deserved that.
"But you have to keep fighting and keep working and be proud of what you stand for."
