JAKE Cooper was disappointed with the way Millwall reacted to Hull’s equaliser at The Den on Saturday afternoon.
Jed Wallace had given Millwall the lead from the penalty spot before Kamil Grosicki scored a 40 yards free-kick to level the game.
The defender thought his side were dominant for majority off the game and thought they deserved to win “I think we dominated most parts of the game. Speaking to NewsAtDen he said “I think their goal took us a bit by surprise. We didn’t react well to that towards the end of the first half but we picked ourselves up in the second half and we deserved to get a second goal, I believe, but maybe the attacking threat wasn’t there and we didn’t get the chances that we should have done.
The big defender revealed the team were disappointed with the way they reacted to the goal.
“It was almost like the shock of it. We’d been very defensively solid here and we maybe thought once we’d scored we could take the game away from them. For them to get a goal like that it knocked us a bit as a team. It took us a bit of time to get back in the game which we have to look at and make sure it doesn’t happen again.
Cooper also revealed that the camp are happy with how they have started the season. The Lions now go into the first international break of the season 12th in the table – just one point outside the top six after one defeat in six games this season.
“One defeat in six games is a credit to us, we’ve started really well and it’s something that we’ll look to keep moving forward after this international break. We’ll have some time to work on things. We’ll certainly come back full of confidence after the start to the season.”
