Millwall 5-2-3



Wycombe Wanderers 4-1-4-1

Half Time: 0 - 0 The Den ( Attendance: NA )
1 min

Millwall extended their unbeaten run to eight league games despite playing out an uninspiring 0-0 draw with Championship strugglers Wycombe Wanderers at The Den. 

Chances were few and far between in a poor game with Millwall’s only real first-half opportunity coming after 11 minutes when Mahlon Romeo stepped inside from an excellent George Evans switch to force a good save from Wycombe keeper David Stockdale.

At the other end, Daryl Horgan darted through midfield to shoot from the edge of the box which sprung Bartosz Bialkowski into action as the ball headed toward the top corner.

The start of the second-half saw a Millwall penalty appeal waved away for a challenge on Mason Bennett before, less than a minute later, Scott Malone struck an effort from the edge of the box which was tipped over the bar.

And mid-way through the half, Wycombe were unlucky not to have a penalty themselves as  Alex Pearce appeared to foul Fred Onyedinma in the box.

Millwall pushed for a late winner as Wycombe dropped back to settle for a point but, other than Jon Dadi Bodvarsson’s tantalising ball across the box in injury time, poor passing and control let the Lions down.

Key Points

Check out all the key talking points and reaction from London Football Scene below…

Key Moment

The referee’s refusal to give Wycombe a penalty when Alex Pearce brought Fred Onyedinma down – it would’ve given the Chairboys a great chance of taking all three points.

Moan of the Match

Millwall continually struggle to break down a low-block – something they have to improve on as their players aren’t comfortable enough on the ball for long periods.

Talking Point

Why was Millwall boss Gary Rowett insistent on sticking with a back five against a poor Wycombe side?

Man of the Match

George Evans – astute defensively and showed some of his wide passing range to launch attacks.

Tweet of the Match

Referee Watch

Jarred Gillett (Australia) – poor throughout in a performance littered with inconsistency. Both sides had cases for second-half penalties with Wycombe’s the stronger.


A scrappy game which struggled to get those few in the stadium pumped up for the battle.


Millwall had to win this game if they harboured any serious Play-Off ambitions but once again they got dragged into a low quality affair by a poor side.
