Freedman: Happy With A Point

20 October 2012

A red card in the first half was to prove costly for Palace as the ten men conceded two goals, one from the resulting penalty after the dismissal, and then one from a set piece. Dean Moxey's sending off meant the side in control of the game had to regroup.

"Only Dean can tell you what he was thinking at the time, but it looked instinctive, I'm sure if he had his time over again he'd let the ball go into the net and we could have gone on to win the game with 11 men.

"Unfortunately he didn't get too much sympathy at half-time, we had to regroup and be mentally strong as we were a man down."

The visitors had a lot of second half pressure but didn't look like they were going to break down the Palace backline. 

"I didn't think they opened us up in the second half even though they had a lot of the ball it was mainly crosses into the box. I was disappointed to concede from a corner but I'm reasonably happy with a point."

The opening period was an excellent start for the home side and the boss felt a two goal lead was no more than was deserved. 

"The first forty minutes we were in control of the game and deserved to be two goals ahead but after the sending off Millwall do what they do best and that is come back at you but looking at the bigger picture a point was deserved for both teams. 

"I have spoken about the character in this side in the past and once again we showed that as a team we refused to be beaten and stuck together well, physically we looked good and got a point and move on from here."
