Ben Whiteman missed a penalty for Preston in one of the uneventful football results of the weekend in the Championship. The match was played in front of the lowest Milwall league attendance of the season of just 10,183. Whiteman struck his penalty onto the upright in the 65th minute.
Millwall’s Gary Rowett: “A lack of goals is a concern, it does not take a genius to work that out. But good players cost a lot of money. But we had quality players on the pitch and something that we have to do better. That defines where you end up in the table. We need that attacking quality third in the final third to win games. I think we will get better and have a squad with a bit more depth. Tonight lacked a lot of quality. When you put so much effort into the West Brom game sometimes games like this feel a bit flat.”
Preston’s Ryan Lowe: “We were outstanding, it was nearly the perfect away performance. There was only one team who might win it and that was us. We’re disappointed not to be going home with three points. Ben will score more penalties than he will miss but we were dead worthy of the penalty. I’ll never expect Ben to miss a penalty. It’s a good point, not many teams will come here and get anything. Millwall was fantastic against West Brom and we know what they are about. Any point on the road is good. It is now one loss in eight or nine games and we want to be taking points.”
