Lee Gregory says Millwall need to stop conceding goals when they are on top in games. The Lions failed to see out what would have been three points on Saturday.
Millwall have found it very difficult to close out games this season. As a result they sit just one point above the Championship’s relegation places. Neil Harris has said his side need to be have a better mentality when closing out games.
The Lions were 2-1 up against Hull going into the final 20 minutes on Saturday but again failed to see it out as Hull equalised with 17 minutes left. “It was frustrating, we were the better team, but conceding goals when we’re on top is silly from us. We need to cut them out” said Millwall’s top scorer.
He also said that his side might be guilty of sitting off too much at the end of games. “We came back fighting and got into the lead, I think we chucked everything at it for 70,75 minutes. I think maybe we sat off a little bit too much and it was another mistake for their goal.”
Asked whether he thinks his teammates are low on confidence he said “The lads seem fine, it’s just the last 15 minutes of every game we just seem a bit nervy. So maybe we just need to get through those 15 minutes and start there.”
It was the 16th time this season that Neil Harris’ side have conceded after the 70 minute in a game costing them a staggering 15 points. Had they held on in those games and collected those points Millwall would currently be sitting on 34 points and in 8th place in the Championship table.
