Southampton 2-0 Millwall
Millwall were finally relegated to League One as they lost to Southampton and Sheffield Wednesday beat Brighton.

An Owls win would have sent Millwall down regardless but goals from Kenwyne Jones and Ricardo Fuller compounded a miserable day for the Lions.

Jones put Saints ahead from the spot after he was fouled by Matt Lawrence.

Ben May hit the bar for Millwall before Fuller rolled the ball into an empty net after the Lions committed everyone forward for an injury-time corner.

  • Southampton boss George Burley:
    "This was a big win and a welcome three points.

    "We have had to raise our standards and we have managed to do that over the last month.

    "We have played with quality in the last few games and this was an opportunity to blood young players. We also kept up the winning habit."

  • Millwall manager David Tuttle
    "It is up to the Millwall board to sort out what happens next and whether or not they want to replace me.

    "Above all they need to sort it out for the fans. They sang my name all the way through here and are the only people to come out with any credit.

    "All that remains for us now is to finish the season on a high. Nobody wants to finish bottom of the table."
