Dougie Freedman believes that Wanderers deserved to take all three points after seeing his team hit the post and miss a penalty which could have sealed the tie with 12 minutes to play. He said, "My reflection on the whole game is that we've helped a team, once again, to get a point against us without them really doing a lot to earn that point.
"I'm very proud of the way they committed and stuck at it, we didn't throw in the towel. If the penalty would have gone in it changes and we would go on to win three or four nil."
Freedman also said, "They've thrown everything at us, teams come here and get beat because of the crowd and the atmosphere, but we stuck at it." However, only Birmingham City have lost more home games than Millwall this season.
When asked about Bolton's failure to secure a victory this year Freedman said, "it's coming around the corner, with the way we are playing, we're getting goals, we've defended very well - including against Burnely - teams are getting one decent chance against us and scoring." In reality Bolton are not "getting goals" - the Wanderers have failed to score in three of their last six games netting just four times in total. Today Millwall reportedly dominated the game and fired in a total of 22 shots to Bolton's 10 as well as having over 61% possession of the ball according to the official stats.
It seems Freedman will live to fight another day but a defeat at the Reebok on Saturday could see the noose tightening.
