LIONS boss Gary Rowett admitted his side lakes the spark required to fight back from a goal down.

Millwall almost snatched a point 11 minutes from time when Tyler Burey forced Dan Grimshaw into a fine save. 

The Lions have now won just one game since December 4 and only one away match since October 19 and manager Gary Rowett is keen to cure their travel sickness after another limp performance. 

Rowett had hoped to open the game up in the second half but they were a goal down before the hour-mark and chasing the game.

“When you look at our recent away games, we haven’t done the right things for long enough in those games,” he said. 

“It’s as simple as that. You can’t come here and concede soft goals, and that is what we have done. 

“I thought we were relatively solid in the first half. We felt if we could be competitive in the game we could bring attacking players on late in the game and try and open it up. But you can’t be 1-0 down when you do that. 

“We haven’t performed well enough often enough in the away games and not enough players have stepped up and performed. 

“Yes we are having a tough time with injuries, but we have to come here and show what good players we have.

“The fans turned up in great numbers and I’m disappointed for them. We didn’t give them enough spark in the game.”
