Millwall’s struggles at The Den continued on Tuesday night, but the Lions collected a hard-earned point against high-flying Watford.
Gary Rowett’s men have managed just one victory from their opening 12 home Championship games – the 2-0 success over Luton Town back in October, whilst this was their first clean sheet since defeating the Hatters.
The point was enough to move the Lions up to 15th and above Cardiff – who they meet in the Welsh capital on Saturday – in their second-tier standings, but more significantly, moved Millwall 10 clear of relegation.
7 of these 18 facts about Millwall boss Gary Rowett are fake – Can you identify which ones aren’t true?
However, despite this being a solid point against a side that are not only sitting second in the table, but boast a number of former Premier League players, it was another game where the Lions failed to score.
And whilst plenty of The Den faithful were encouraged by their performance, others were left frustrated with some of Rowett’s tactics and decisions.
Here’s how they reacted on Twitter to the Lions boss following the goalless draw:
If performances & results don't change I'd predict Rowett will be gone by mid-Feb (at least). Fans are becoming restless and that's always the beginning of the end! #Millwall

Something that when any team has we struggle. For the life of me I can’t work out our Rowett, Harris and even those before them haven’t sorted that issue. So slow most of the time #Millwall https://t.co/43SaV7BDmZ

Always Rowett: I think we need another defensive midfielder on. #Millwall

Odds on Rowett mentioning that they miss the fans at home, with 2 wins in 17 and no home win in 10, no fans is one of the main reasons he’s in a job still #millwall

A positive look
We’ve drawn with the four best side in the division,3 of which have £100m+ squads. Norwich,b’mouth,Watford,Brentford.
Also only the top 6 have lost fewer games.
I believe we are not far away and once Rowett gets his own style players in we will kick on #millwall

Gary Rowett actually confuses me so much, 97 midfielders on the pitch
