TOWN boss Peter Jackson had words of praise for his goalkeeper Matt Glennon, and words of sympathy for his opposite number Willie Donachie.
Ten days after Jackson came under fire from Town fans as his side slumped 3-0 at home to Oldham, Donachie felt the heat from the Millwall faithful as Town held out for a point.
"I have sympathy for Willie. It's not nice to see any manager get criticised," said Jackson.
"I think both ourselves and Millwall will rise up the table, because we are both better than our league positions."
It was only a fourth clean sheet of the season for Town, and Jackson said of his Summer signing Glennon: "He was excellent and I was pleased with the team as a whole.
"We knew it wouldn't be easy against Millwall and it wasn't, but we stuck to our task and could have got the win.
"There weren't that many chances and our disallowed goal was the best effort of the game.
"I'm not sure whether it was a foul (by David Mirfin) but the referee thought it was and that's what matters.
"We survived a scare when Mirf cleared off the line late on, and Millwall certainly came into it more in the second half, but we deserved the point."
Jackson returned to 4-1-4-1 for last night's game, explaining: "It has brought us success previously and it was crucial that we kept a clean sheet.
"We normally create more chances than we did here, and we'll look to improve that aspect at Orient on Saturday."
On Town's 299 travelling fans, Jackson said: "It was a great turn-out because it's a difficult trip, especially on an evening.
"We appreciated them clapping us off the pitch and I'd like to thank them for sticking with us after the Oldham letdown and for making the effort to cheer us on."
