DARIUS Henderson hopes his last-gasp equaliser at Burnley will prove to be a turning point in Millwall's season.

Henderson 's 92nd-minute strike earned the Lions a deserved point at Turf Moor on Saturday – and the striker went close to snatching a dramatic winner when he hit the bar with the game's final chance.

Kenny Jackett's side face Bristol City at Ashton Gate on Tuesday evening looking to claim their first win in five matches.

"We have a very good mentality and team spirit at this club and have a never-say-die attitude," Henderson said.

"We hope the late equaliser can give us a boost and get our season going."

Henderson started on the bench against the Clarets – as he had done against Brighton the week before – but the 31-year-old says he has welcomed the competition from loan signing Chris Wood.

He told the club's matchday programme last week: "Chris is clearly a very good player with a bright future ahead of him if he can continue to perform the way that he he has done in his career so far.

"It's great for the club that he's here. It's more competition for places and that can only improve the team.

"He's a very good player and I'll have to fulfil my potential to stay in the side, more so than ever."
