A Friday night live on Sky game. It was good to get the win
This game was not exactly a sizzler but we started well, we looked sharper, passed it about a bit had decent movement and scored a goal in the 15th minute. Then for some reason we played the rest of the game frightened to do anything similar again. It seemed like that after the 5-1 drubbing at home against Middlesbrough the taking of this precious lead against Brighton was something they were keeping. That type of attitude tells me that it shows a lack of confidence, we have got to shake this attitude off . Hopefully if the team watched the game back they will see that up to when they scored that goal they were much the better team. We could have continued the game and scored again, Brighton were there for the taking and although we "mugged" them at their place we could have done it with a bit more confidence. This proves to me we are struggling in the division due to a mentality and not skill or quality.
They done the job so on that score the players cannot be faulted. Millwall's goal come about after some good play and a couple bits of luck when Lee Gregory picked the ball up on the edge of the area and run in and smacked the thing home beating the Brighton keeper on his far side of the goal.
That's 23 points from 21 games and if we keep that up for the rest of the season that may not be enough to keep us up.
