Lee Gregory says Millwall were not aggressive enough against Wolves in their 1-0 defeat at the Molineux on Saturday.

Although the Lions have performed well in their opening six games, particularly in their 4-0 win over Norwich City, they have accrued five points from a possible 18.

With one win so far, Neil Harris’ men are 19th in the Sky Bet Championship and remain only a point above Burton Albion who occupy the first of the three relegation spots.

He said: “In the first half I think we gave them a little bit too much respect. They’re a good team.

“[In the] first half we were just on the back foot and they got the lead through a good goal, to be honest.

"We have been training all week about stopping shots from the edge of the box and we didn't stop that one, and look where it ended up.

"Yeah, not a good performance."

A shot turned over the bar by Jordan Archer before he would deny Léo Bonatini twice ensured the score remained only a goal to nil.

The Lions produced a resilient defensive display after Diogo Jota’s opener, keeping themselves in the game at critical junctures.

Gregory added: “The gaffer said to us at half time, ‘Stay in the game, we will get a chance so we can hopefully nick one back’.

“We had a great effort saved on the edge of the box but it just wasn’t to be.”

Millwall visit Loftus Road on Tuesday for a clash with Queens Park Rangers, and it is a chance for the 29-year-old to meet Ian Holloway again after playing under him at the Den in 2014.

Asked whether performances in the opening six games warrant encouragement, he said: “Yeah, they have been there from the start of the season.

“We know how good we are, we know what we are good at, what we are not good at, so we stick to that and we will be fine eventually.”
