Fan's Roar: Late goal for Millwall and one in the eye for Harry
By Ian Toal of Millwall Supporters Club
What a great match we saw Saturday as we snatched a late point against high flying QPR.
We even scored two goals against a team who had just set a club record eight clean sheets.
I love big games like that was at The Den, when near top of the league come to SE16, bring a large travelling support and the home end is a lot fuller than normal.
Those are the games you really look forward to and this one didn't disappoint.
QPR are a classy team at this level. They keep the ball well and if you give them half a chance they take it a lot more often than other teams would in this division.
That said we gave them a good match and I think we deserved the draw which I would have been happy with before the match.
To snatch a point deep into injury time means you leave the ground feeling like it was a victory and happy to have shut-up the away support.
Hopefully it will prove a turning point for the team and they can take this into the match at Reading next Saturday.
When you snatch a point in that fashion it can give the team a real psychological boost.
The Den was an intimidating place for The Hoops to visit.
Joey Barton was the pantomime villain as expected, but the funniest incident happened just before we got the important second equaliser.
Joe Jordan took a ball in the face from someone in the crowd sending his glasses flying but things got better.
Redknapp was having a moan and asking for the ball, which he promptly then took the ball in the chops from a member of Millwall staff who shall remain nameless!
He then had a joke or two with some Lions supporters in the crowd, but his mood quickly changed seconds later when substitute Jermaine Easter found the net sending the home supporters into ecstasy.
I'd say it was a deserved point as we were denied a blatant penalty when Charlie Austin flattened Liam Trotter in the box in the first half. The ball got cleared up field and seconds later QPR had taken the lead through Kranjcar.
So instead of being potentially one up we were behind. Justice was done though come the end of the match and Lomas will hopefully use that fighting never-say-die spirit and take it into next few matches.
One player who took his chance well in the Rangers match was left-back Scott Malone who took the man of the match award.
Not only was he good defensively, he was a real attacking threat which we need as we don't have any out and out wingers at the club currently with James Henry and Liam Feeney both leaving on loan recently.
If he can replicate that performance regularly he could be the most improved player at the club by far and a real asset to us.
