DEN boss Ian Holloway praised two returning lions for their hand in Saturday’s 1-0 away win to promotion-chasing Derby County.

Lee Martin was restored to the starting line-up after two games out of the side altogether, and the former Ipswich man was integral as his sweeping cross was headed home by Steve Morison.

Ollie said: “(Lee was) Terrific, I have to say that.

“Liam Feeny’s gone to Blackburn Rovers and people have to step up to the plate and we’ve almost had one or two too many that have confused the issue.

“Hopefully we can clear that and make sure everybody knows where they stand."

Paul Robinson was caught off-guard when Danny Shittu went down inured and the returning club captain was called upon in the 56th minute without having time to warm up.

Holloway was complimentary of Robinson after he slotted in like he had been playing the whole 90 minutes.

Ollie declared: “Do I expect anything different from that young man?

“He's Millwall through and through.

“You cut him through, he's got Millwall in his blood."

Holloway also added that due to injury to Shittu, and pre-planning for three games in seven days, Robinson will get the chance to start on Tuesday night when Millwall travel to Bloomfield Road to take on Blackpool.
