20/9/14 Championship game 8 Millwall 0 Nottingham Forest 0 att:12,034

Jimmy Abdou after five minutes into the game moved from midfield to right back after Carlos Edwards was stretchered with a bad knee injury and Millwall from that point was the only team that was going to win this game. Far fetched wishing some my say but after a scrappy dull first half Millwall kicked on and dominated the scrappy but a bit more exciting second half.  Jimmy Abdou in the right back position nullified the threat of the Forest striker Michail Antonio and I can only remember the striker having one effort on goal.

We did push hard right to the end to get the winning goal but although we did have at least three good chances.  Martyn Woolford, and Mathias Ranegie must be wondering how they missed the chances they had. The table toppers Forest came to Millwall and I presume thinking they would win but we we bossed the game and they didn't really threaten and fell short of out playing us. I know it was just a 0-0 draw but I saw a few positives which tells me we are not far off from being as good as those that are in and around the top spot. That's 11 points and mid-table

Ian Holloway won't settle for mid-table and nor will the team. Me? I'll except anything as long as it's a lot better than last year.
