Leeds 3-1 Millwall

Leeds 3-1 Millwall

Leeds United   3 - 1   Millwall

Leeds registered their first league win of the season with a deserved victory that ended Millwall's 100% start to this season's Championship.

The visitors took the lead when Leeds captain Richard Naylor headed a Steve Morison cross into his own net.

Jonny Howson struck a post and Darren Ward cleared a Lloyd Sam shot off the line before Sam fired Leeds level.

Leeds sent on Davide Somma late in the second half and the striker duly struck twice to give his side the points.

Of the two promoted sides, Millwall had started the season better, scoring seven goals without reply in impressive victories over Bristol City and Hull.

By contast, Leeds had only managed one point - picked up away at Nottingham Forest last Sunday - and lost their previous home game 2-1 to Derby on the opening day of the season.

606: DEBATE

Millwall did the double over Leeds in League One last season, winning 2-0 at Elland Road, their first victory at the West Yorkshire club in 22 years.

They had designs on another victory when the lively Morison's cross from the right was headed past his own keeper by defender Naylor, under pressure from Lions striker Lisbie, after 15 minutes.

But the home side responded well and in a six-minute spell, Luciano Becchio blazed over from just six yards out, Howson hit the post with a shot and Sam was denied on the line by Ward.

The equaliser, when it came, was well-deserved, as winger Sam finished off a good move with a drive from the edge of the area for his third goal of the season and the first conceded by Millwall this campaign.

Neil Collins put a close-range header inches wide from a free-kick, impressive on-loan winger Sanchez Watt had a shot saved by David Forde and Collins struck the post with a header from a corner as Leeds continued to dominate.

Half-time halted their momentum and Millwall returned as a threat in the second period when James Henry crossed for substitute Darren Carter, but his header was over the bar.

Leeds boss Simon Grayson eventually sent on South African striker Somma, who duly delivered four minutes into his league debut with a neat finish from 12 yards.

And he wrapped up the points in injury time, finishing well following a powerful driving run from Howson.
