Jon Dadi Bodvarsson praised his side’s performance in their midweek draw against Fulham.

The Icelandic striker scored only his second goal of the season to earn the Lions a point as Fulham failed to move into second place.

“We were much better as a team defensively," Bodvarsson said.

"I would say the input as a team was much better than against West Brom the other day.

“We’re happy with the performance, at the same time a bit disappointed with not getting the three points. Performance wise I thought we were good.

“We were really aggressive. The energy levels we put in, especially in the first half, were really high. Not just individually but collectively we were really good in [applying] pressure and attackingly, we were a threat.

“Unfortunately, it maybe died out in the second half, but we were still disciplined enough to get a point.”

There was a hint of controversy around Millwall’s equaliser, with Bodvarsson appearing to be offside.

“I was just trying to time it right and then I saw the Fulham players were not happy [with the decision]," joked Bodvarsson.

“It was a bit of a VAR moment.

“Thankfully they decided to give it and good to get back on the mark after a little while. I felt that the Fulham player had the last touch.”

When asked about VAR, he admitted: “I don’t like it, I think football is a game of emotions and mistakes, and that’s how it should be.”

Overall, the Millwall striker was happy with his side and felt that there was definite improvement in Wednesday night’s performance.

He added: “‘We weren’t at our best against West Brom, but today against Fulham we were really good.”
