Millwall 0-1 Leeds
Ben May's own goal deep into stoppage time handed Leeds all three points at the expense of unlucky Millwall.

Gary Kelly's corner in the second minute of added time was directed by May beyond debutant goalkeeper Colin Doyle at the near post.

Leeds hit the post twice in the first half and Doyle also denied Jonathon Douglas with a superb save.

Millwall went closest when Barry Hayles vicious shot from inside the penalty area was tipped over by Neil Sullivan.

  • Millwall boss Colin Lee:
    "It's a cruel game and we deserved better. We thought we had a chance of winning at the end. There hadn't been many chances, but we matched them in every department.

    "The deflection at the end is probably why they are challenging at the top and we are at the bottom.

    "We work hard all week for a performance as good as the one I got from the lads, but there were an awful amount of disruptions in the game. It wasn't allowed to flow."

  • Leeds manager Kevin Blackwell on David Healy's last-minute deflected winner:
    Blackwell said: "We shaded the game and had the better chances. We hit the woodwork twice, but I didn't think the goal was going to come.

    "But we got a fortuitous deflection and we will take that away from home.

    "David (Healy) said if it hadn't taken a deflection it was going in the top corner anyway and I believe him."
