Nigel Adkins admitted he was happy with an away draw after Hull City’s 2-2 draw at Millwall.
The Lions were leading 2-1 until Markus Henriksen headed in to salvage a point in a clash of two Championship strugglers.
Millwall manager Neil Harris was rightly frustrated that the South London club did not pick up a win.
And his opposite number Adkins was far more contented at the final outcome.
He said: “A good point away from home. It’s always a challenging place to come to and we knew that before the game – that we had to be competitive.
“Neil’s comments beforehand – we’ve got to get back to the way Millwall play. So we knew it was going to be coming into the box and that we’d have to defend it well.
“We got off to a good start – Kamil Grosicki on the counter-attack. It was a good goal.
“Yes, it was competitive but it was a poor goal for the equaliser. We’ve got to stop the cross coming in.
“Millwall started the second half really well. They pinned us back and it was really challenging for us – they’ve gone and scored and we had to hang in there, make a little change and a good goal from a corner by Henriksen with the first header by De Wijs.
“It’s a good point away from home. It’s just underlined the spirit we have got in the team and the squad. We lost players [to injury through the game]. So from my point of view it was a good point.”
