Millwall 1-2 Sheff Utd
Sheffield United scored twice in the last 15 minutes to claim their first victory at Millwall for 20 years.

Graham Stack denied Paul Shaw and Alan Quinn before Blades keeper Paddy Kenny and Lions captain Kevin Muscat were sent off for clashing at half-time.

With defender Phil Jagielka in goal for the visitors, Mark Phillips nodded Millwall ahead but Andy Liddell's blistering free-kick levelled it.

And Derek Geary won it with a stunning 30-yard volley which flew past Stack.

  • Millwall boss Dennis Wise on failing to beat Jagielka:

    "The forwards are there to score goals, and they are not doing that.

    "If Paul Ifill's shot had gone in when we were 1-0 up, I am sure that we would have won the game.

    "He was a stand-in keeper and we should have put more crosses in and put him under more pressure."

  • Sheffield United boss Neil Warnock on the fracas at half-time:

    "We have someone filming us this season for a TV programme, and we are hoping that our man has it on video.

    "I would love to see the video come out. Paddy Kenny has a balloon on his forehead like you have never seen. I will take the video to the FA myself to ensure it gets there.

    "If somebody head-butted me like somebody has head-butted Kenny, then I would chin him. We know who it is, but that is not for me to say."
