'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Millen's View - Portsmouth (H 0-0)



After Bristol City`s draw with Portsmouth on Saturday, manager Keith Millen said he was pleased with the way his side played.

There was plenty of commitment from both sides on the park, but when it came to clear cut chances in front of goal there were few to write home about.

Both bosses played a five man defence, neither wanted to lose this one.

Millen told the Press Association: 'I'm proud of my players. They didn't have much time to recover from a tough game at Leicester and there were some tired legs in the second half.

'I was turning to my assistant and asking him which players looked the most tired. It was a job to tell, but we kept going and only one team looked like winning it in the last 10 minutes.

'It was important to us to get our first clean sheet of the season and it's another result to build on after losing our two opening games.

'We looked dangerous on both flanks, but even though we got some decent balls into their box we came up against some very strong defenders.

'I was really pleased with our back four as a unit. It wasn't the personnel I would have picked at the start of the season. But we have overcome injuries and illness which shows the strength of our squad.'

So it looks like the big idea was not to let a goal in rather than score one. And who says one up front is boring.
