MATCH REPORT: Millwall 1-1 Fulham

February 12, 2020

A night of backward and forward midfield battles,  and very little bite in front of goal,  sees the  points shared.

Fulham were the high flying visitors to The Den and like Millwall, were desperate for the three points to put the pressure on those above them, but a stalemate in South London saw both teams finish the game with a point.

 

The game was barely three minutes old when a training ground routine saw the away side take the lead.  A short free-kick was played across the face of the Millwall box before being crossed in to the waiting Mitrovic, who excellently timed his run to beat the offisde trap and tap past the helpless Bartosz Bialkowski.

 

The Fulham fans had barely finished celebrating when Millwall equalised only five minutes later from a corner in the 8th minute.  The ball was whipped in and after playing ricochet in the penalty area, fell to Bodvarsson in the six yard box, and the Icelandic international coolly slotted it away from close range.

 

The Lions were given a golden chance to take the lead in the 20th minute when Romeo was fouled after being played through by Jed Wallace.  The latter stepped up to take the awarded set piece, but his effort clipped the top of the cross bar and sailed over.

 

The opening 45 minutes was an entertaining, back and forward affair with a number of half chances and over hit through balls, but both sides went in at the break all square. 

 

Fulham's Josh Onomah managed to beat the offside trap after the break, but his near post effort in the 54th minute sailed high and wide.

 

Fulham again had a chance as Onomah rammed his way through the Millwall midfield and defence, but his left foot effort in the 61st minute was dragged wide of the far post.

 

In the 75th minute, Tom Bradshaw had the perfect chance to make it 2-1.  A lovely through ball was played through to the Millwall number nine, but his left footed effort was tame and easily held by Rodak.

 

A corner was crossed in from Millwall, who brought on Skalak and Smith to assist with the aerial threat, but the connecting header in the 86th minute at the far post went just wide.

 

Fulham nearly took all three points when they hit the bar in injury time.  A near post corner was met in the air by substitute Kebano,and it beat Bartosz Bialkowski, but luckily the woodwork came to Millwall's rescue.

 

The result left Millwall seven points off the play-offs and the visitors level on points with second placed Leeds United.  A draw was ultimately a fair result, but Rowett will be keen to get more victories to get back in touch with the top six.
