Steve Lomas: Has seen Millwall respond positively to tricky start

A solitary strike from Scott McDonald, which took a wicked deflection off Dorian Dervite, was enough to hand the Lions all three points at The Valley on Saturday.

That result followed an impressive 3-1 victory over Blackpool in midweek and things are starting to a look a little rosier for the capital outfit - who had opened with a six-match winless run.

Lomas certainly believes that things are looking up, with Millwall starting to get the rewards their performances have deserved.

He told Sky Sports: "I thought it was great character.

"We knew that Charlton would want to bounce back after Huddersfield in the week and we knew it would be a tough game, but we wanted to build on our performance on Tuesday night and I thought the boys did that very well."

Asked what, if anything, he has changed in the last couple of games, Lomas added: "Not really much. Probably less preparation if I'm being honest, more recovery.

"But apart from the Derby game (a 5-1 defeat) we have been having decent performances but just haven't got the results. I thought the last two performances were all about character and team effort."

Millwall worked hard over the summer to bring in a number of players and Lomas says he will not be rushing to bolster his ranks further in the loan window.

He said: "We're working hard with what we've got.

"You always want to improve, but we would probably have to move a few out to maybe freshen the squad up and bring some funds in. That's the difficulty for all managers."

s it the same people that complain about Chelsea that complain about Mayweather? You should by now know what to expect from both, if you can't appreciate how good they are at nullifying their opponents then don't watch them.

do concede though, that getting rid of Luiz has made them less entertaining. In the same way that driving with both eyes open is less exciting, but probably a good idea.
