21/4/14 Millwall 0 Doncaster 0 att:12,026, We were lively but just couldn't score

Bank Holiday Monday and that's six games undefeated and game 11 of "Ollies Cup Finals"

Doncaster down to ten men and they park the bus and are happy to earn the point. We wanted the three points and we give it ago but Doncaster played with their backs against the wall and with determination and a bit of luck stopped us from scoring.

It can be said that Ian Holloway's style is somewhat different along with his personality. There was questions regarding his state of mind after his stint at Crystal Palace and all sorts of reported reasons why he left.  Whatever happened there, Crystal Palace that is, I don't care, it's what he does here and how he helps us stay up and push on next season. It has took us a while to "adjust" Playing five strikers was confusing for us so I can imagine what it was like for the players. I think in the early games he was more on tactics than playing his best team. He didn't know what his best team was but he thought he did and when he got them playing against the B-side and they got done 6-0 the B-side became the A-side and we haven't looked back. We look solid for this game and had a hat full of chances but some days the ball just won't go in.
