Middlesbrough   0 - 1   Millwall

Middlesbrough 0-1 Millwall

Middlesbrough 0-1 Millwall

A goal from on-loan Jason Puncheon on his Millwall debut was enough to consign relegation-threatened Middlesbrough to another defeat.

Puncheon fired in from 10 yards after he picked up Liam Trotter's cross from the left-side of the pitch.

Middlesbrough went close when Kris Boyd had his shot blocked before goalkeeper David Forde tipped over Gary O'Neil's deflected effort.

Forde also did well to parry Jason Williams's stabbed shot.

Meanwhile, Boro hitman Leroy Lita will rue the two headers he missed, nodding over at the near post before failing again in the final minute.

For Millwall, Steve Morison fired over from 15 yards, while Danny Shittu was denied by a great save from Luke Steele.

And the Boro keeper was called into action at the death when he saved James Henry's poked shot from James Morison's pass.

Millwall's first victory in five league games allowed them some breathing space between themselves and the bottom three, while Tony Mowbray's side are in the relegation zone having won only five games all season.
