Millwall manager Gary Rowett gave his thoughts on the Lions’ home draw with QPR.

Jon Dadi Bodvarsson’s deflected effort saved a point for Millwall, whose run without a win stretched to six games.

When asked if he was disappointed in his side’s display, Rowett said, ‘Yes and no in terms of our effort, in terms of the positions we got into, in terms of having slightly more control and possession and more shots.

‘I felt we deserved a little bit more than a draw out of the game, but at the same time, you’ve got to make those moments count.

‘We got into some brilliant positions again and just lacked that little bit of finesse or bit of quality to try and turn those moments into goals.

‘We kept QPR quiet-ish, certainly in the first half. To concede the goal in the way that we did was disappointing. We know they’ve got good players; Chair picks the ball up and it’s easy for him to get space around the edge of the box, and one shot one goal.

‘That’s where we don’t seem to find those moments to turn when we’re not playing as well into a winning position.

‘That was the disappointment. After the last three or four days, it would have been easy to get our heads down and almost give in. We showed an incredible amount of fight

‘I’m really pleased for Jon, because he got a little bit of stick for the header that he missed. It was nice that he bounced back, didn’t let it affect him and scored the goal.

Then it was just a case of could we put the right ball in the box, could we get something to drop for us and as we’re finding at the moment, it’s not seeming to do that but I think we’ve tried everything we can do in order to win the game.’

Rowett made a number of attacking chances, bringing on Matt Smith, Tom Bradshaw, Jon Dadi Bodvarsson and Tyler Burey in search for a late winner.

He explained he was pleased with the impact his changes made, despite not quite having enough for the three points.

He continued, ‘You always ask players to come on the pitch and make the difference, that’s their responsibility as players that are finishing the game for you.

‘They have to have that intensity; they have to come on and do something. To put Jon [Dadi Bodvarsson] wide left and to end up with Bradders [Bradshaw], Smudge [Smith] and young Tyler [Burey] on for the last few minutes, we’re just trying to do everything we can within the powers if the squad to win the game.

‘I’m disappointed we haven’t won the game; I’m disappointed the run’s continued, but I’m sat here proud that the players have worked incredibly hard.’

The draw is Millwall’s ninth of the season, two more than any other side in the division.

Rowett explained that failing to turn those draws into wins is holding his side back: ‘We know from last season that draws, at the moment, have been the difference between us getting to where we want to go.

‘They were the difference last year and they’re the difference for us getting to where we need to be and for me that is disappointing.

‘If I look through our games, we’ve had one really poor performance against Derby, but we had a big moment in that game. The last three or four home games, we’ve had massive chances that we’ve not managed to take.

‘Ultimately, it’s that quality that wins you games. Whilst we’re getting into those positions and continue to try and push forward, do the right things and push hard as a team, we will get our reward.

‘At the moment we’re not, but as we know it’s a long, long season. We’re sat here, we’ve only lost four games, but we’ve only won four games and that’s been the disappointment so far.’
