Millwall vs Leeds
Sky Bet Chship
3:00pm Saturday 5th October
By finishing their wait to get a Sky Bet Championship success with a 2-1 triumph over Leeds at The 27, millwall started life following Neil Harris.
The Lions, who had trainer Adam Barrett in charge following Harris decision to sit as manager earlier this week, went to Jed Wallace penalty, which saw Gaetano Berardi dismissed.
First goal at home for the team, and tom Bradshaws second goal in two matches doubled the result.
Ezgjan Alioski decreased the shortage in the very first minute of the second period, but the hosts held on to record their first league success since August plus a ninth win in their past 11 home games against Leeds.
The three points so are down to fifth and sees while Leeds fall from the automatic promotion spots the Lions climb up to 15th in the Championship.
As Wallace exchanged passes with Mahlon Romeo the era got off to the perfect start, but the Lions right-back couldnt conquer Kiko Casilla in his near post within the first minute.
But Millwall did not need to wait until they were at the lead. Bradshaw got on the wrong aspect of Berardi and he was brought by the defender down.
Until Wallace wonderfully dispatched the resulting punishment to the top corner for his third goal in five matches against the Yorkshire outfit referee James Linington wasted no time in pointing to the spot and subsequently giving Berardi his orders.
The Lions doubled their advantage just before the break and continued to swarm Marcelo Bielsas men. Ben Thompson, that had been back at the beginning line-up after two matches, played a cheeky pass into the path of Shane Ferguson, who drilled across for Bradshaw, who subsequently used the pace over the ball to apply the finishing touch with a lovely flick to the far corner via the article.
Bielsa responded by introducing Barry Douglas to get Helder Costa at half-time, which intended Alioski moved ahead. And that shift paid dividends almost immediately as Alioski tapped home Jack Harrison cross to score from close range only Leeds second goal in their last six trips to The Den.
Mateusz Klich went near after 68 minutes, but his curling effort failed to issue Bartosz Bialkowski in the Lions purpose.
Despite being down to ten men, Leeds applied firm stood to get a victory in front of their fans.
