Andy Munro watches Blues draw with Millwall.
Helped by a poor referee, Millwall nicked a share of the points thanks to a penalty in the eighth of five minutes extra time – say no more. This shouldn’t, however, detract from a game where the Blues players got their pride back, fighting for every ball in what was a very entertaining ninety (eight) minutes.
It was good to see Juninho Bacuna score and he looks a class addition whilst still giving his all in terms of workrate and endeavour. Martin Taylor yet again scored a sublime penalty and he is the sort of charismatic character that Bluenoses love so let’s hope we can sign him.
Alongside Taylor, Onel Hernandez, released from his wingback role into a more advanced position, was a box of tricks and he would also be a good signing if we could afford him. Neal Etheridge had to pull off one excellent save and we had to hack one off the line, but at the other end Blues not only hit the woodwork twice but made several other good chances.
One of the other plus points to take from the game is that Millwall have been serious challengers for a play-off place but, in fact, looked a distinctly average side. Luton are in the play-offs and yet we’ve hammered them twice so hope springs eternal for next season with youngsters like Jordan James and Nico Gordon coming through – plus hopefully more to follow.
