Jed Wallace’s 73rd minute strike was enough to earn Millwall just their second away win of the season.

Wallace fired under Kelle Roos after good work from Lee Gregory in a clinical counter-attacking move which also signalled the first shot on target of the match.

In an encounter of few chances, Jack Marriott squandered Derby’s best opportunity early in the second period after getting beyond Shaun Hutchinson and Jake Cooper.

The Rams were sparked into life after Wallace’s strike with Millwall stopper Jordan Archer forced into an excellent save deep into stoppage time.

But Neil Harris’ side stood firm to pick-up just their 10th away point of the campaign and move five points clear of the Championship dropzone.

Key Moment

Jed Wallace’s fifth goal of the season was enough to seal all three points in a low-key affair.

Moan of the Match

Derby’s constant willingness to pass the ball across their own backline was dull for all to see.

Talking Point

Should Derby have adapted earlier to Millwall’s aerial supremacy?

Man of the Match

Mahlon Romeo – excellent defensively and constantly offered an outlet on the right as the Lions looked to come forward.

Referee Watch

James Linington (Newport) – good performance for the most part, letting the game flow fairly.


The Derby fans grew increasingly frustrated as the Rams struggled to break down Millwall, whilst the away fans were spurred on to make even more noise after Wallace’s strike.


A perfect tactical masterclass from Neil Harris as the Lions were set-up perfectly to score from an incisive counter attack.
