Henry: Millwall's response to Ipswich defeat will be crucial

JAMES Henry believes Millwall face a "big test ahead" after losing for the first time in 14 games against Ipswich on Saturday.

The Lions had not tasted defeat since September prior to their visit to Portman Road but were undone by two quire-fire goals either side of half-time.

DJ Campbell then added a killer third goal – his second of the game – from the penalty spot to put an added gloss on the scoreline for the Tracor Boys.

But Henry says Millwall will not dwell on the result for long and are already looking ahead to their match against Leicester City at The Den next weekend.

"We knew it would be impossible to win or draw every game until the end of the season," Henry told NewsAtDen.

"I think we've got a big test ahead now and let's see how we react after this. We've got ourselves in a good position and we need to keep the momentum alprazolam going."

The Lions were aggrieved not to have taken an early lead against Ipswich after Chris Wood's fourth-minute effort was disallowed for offside.

And while Henry admitted the visitors fell away in the second-half, he revealed his frustration at a string of decisions that have gone against Millwall in recent weeks.

"It's was a big decision by the linesman – they're getting too many wrong at the moment," he said, referring to the three efforts Kenny Jackett's side had chalked-off against Blackburn last month.

"I thought Ipswich worked really hard. We tried to get hold of the game early on and we were unlucky with the disallowed goal – we've all watched it back and he's a yard onside.

"After that we probably weren't good enough ourselves but everyone has off days and to go 13 games unbeaten in this league is fantastic. So we're looking to build another run now."
