Lee Gregory’s post-Brentford verdict: Millwall weren’t at it – all over the pitch

BY MAX HALL

Millwall striker Lee Gregory did not hold back when asked about his side’s performance in Saturday’s 2-0 defeat at Brentford.

Sergi Canos and Ollie Watkins were on target for the Bees.

It means that the Lions have only banked two points on the road – the joint worst return in the Championship along with Rotherham United.

Gregory said: “All over the park, we weren’t at it.

“I’m disappointed. We just weren’t good enough away from home.

“We need to change that, especially going into next weekend.”

Next for the Lions is a visit to Norwich City, who won 4-0 at Sheffield Wednesday at the weekend.

Asked how Millwall can turn around their dismal away results, Gregory puffed out his cheeks and said:

“God knows… play better.

“I might be a bit biased, because I’m looking at my personal performance, but what I’m looking at is we just weren’t good enough [on Saturday], they capitalised on that and we go home empty-handed.

“We should have won that easy but unfortunately we didn’t and we’ve made it hard for ourselves.

“We’re really confident at home. We did exactly this last year – winning at home and then losing away. We just need that lucky win away from home to kick-start us, but we need to be better.

“We made two mistakes and they scored a goal. We had chances. Maybe it’s a different game if they go in but, again, we need to pick up clean sheets away from home, and unfortunately we didn’t.”

The 30-year-old striker denied a lack of away form will raise the spectre of relegation fears.

“No, not at all,” said Gregory. “We’re performing week in, week out. Alright, [Brentford] wasn’t the best performance but results will come, so it’s just about being patient and getting better.”
