Charlton stalemate felt like a defeat, says Millwall defender

DEFENDER Mark Beevers admitted Millwall's 0-0 draw with Charlton at The Den on Saturday felt like a defeat in the dressing room.

The Lions were forced to settle for a point against the Addicks despite a dominant second-half performance in which Dany N'Guessan's header from a corner was cleared off the line.

And while Beevers was pleased to keep Chris Powell's side out at the other end, he believes the result was a case of two points dropped rather than one gained.

"We are slightly frustrated," he said. "We are on a great run so we went into this game confident that we would get three points.

"As a team we defended well again and we managed to come out with another clean sheet, but the lads almost feel like this was a defeat in there.

"I don't think attacking-wise we were on form, but like I said we managed to keep the clean sheet so if we can keep them coming then the victories will come too.

"We were just missing our cutting-edge. The boys played well but we didn't manage to create enough in the final third.

"We've been doing that in the last few weeks but it's not going to be there every game. We will look to improve and get a goal in the next game."
