Walsall 2 Millwall 1, League One, Game 11, 1/10/16, att: 4,474 (570)


Played 10, won 3, drawn 3, lost 4, gd-4, pts 12
We cannot buy a game at the moment and that's our 3rd defeat on the trot. We pounded Walsall in the second half but we had no luck, Shaun Williams and Steve Morison went close and Lee Gregory curled one just over but we could not level the score and a late flurry at the end of the game could still not produce a finish that would have sent the travelling 570 home reasonably happy.We suffered in this game once again by conceded early and we done this twice by conceding in the 17th minute first half and then just four  minutes into the second half we were beaten again. Balls in from wings seem to cause us problems and our marking and our closing down of players we must improve on. Fred scored which is always a pleasure when he powered in a header from close range after a Mahlon Romeo's ball picked him out. We are just outside a relegation spot but only because better goal difference and we better get our defensive act together or else there will be no way back. That worry maybe a bit over the top but if we don't start winning soon "shit happens.
