Millwall manager Ian Holloway says that he is "proud" of his players following their 2-1 victory against Middlesbrough at the Riverside Stadium.

Ian Holloway has said that he is "proud" of his Millwall players having seen his side climb out of the Championship relegation zone.

The Lions defeated Middlesbrough 2-1 at the Riverside Stadium, courtesy of Stefan Maierhofer's first-half brace.

"It's a fantastic win," Holloway told reporters following the game. "We had certain things to concentrate on and we did. I'm proud of the players.

"There's no point looking at the league table now, it's all about what it shows after the next three games. I was actually disappointed not to win the second half. We had the chances to put the game to bed."

Millwall return to action on Monday when they take on fellow strugglers Doncaster Rovers.
