Burnley   0 - 3   Millwall

Burnley v Millwall

Burnley 0-3 Millwall

Paul Robinson scored a second-half double as Millwall ended Burnley's three-match winning run and kept their own faint play-off hopes alive.

Defender Robinson opened the scoring from six yards with a neat left-footed finish from Andros Townsend's corner.

Robinson grabbed his second when he met Alan Dunne's cross and fired in left-footed from 12 yards out.

Townsend grabbed a third in the 87th minute when he rifled home a low left-foot shot from 12 yards.

For Millwall it was a first win away from home in the Championship in their last 10 attempts.

The London club are now seven points adrift of the play-offs and will undoubtedly be buoyed by such a convincing victory over on-form Burnley - who harbour their own promotion hopes, sitting four points behind sixth-placed Nottingham Forest.

Burnley went close in the sixth minute when Dunne fouled on-loan Aston Villa striker Nathan Delfouneso and Chris Eagles lined up a free-kick 30 yards from goal.

The former Manchester United trainee hit a fierce effort which Dunne did well to block but the hosts began to build up a head of steam.

As Burnley pushed, Liam Trotter fouled on-loan Chelsea midfielder Jack Cork and Clarets right-back Tyrone Mears looped a dangerous free-kick into the danger area.

Delfouneso, who scored the winning goal on his debut in the midweek 1-0 victory at Hull, rose highest to connect with Mears' delivery but his firm header came back off the bar.

Lions striker Steve Morison hit a 25-yard effort which flew narrowly over the bar, however, the momentum remained largely with the hosts.

Jay Rodriguez hit a 25-yard shot which drew a comfortable save from Millwall goalkeeper David Forde and Clarets left-back Daniel Fox then went close with a long-range strike.

But Clarets were hit with a sucker-punch in the 52nd minute when Robinson opened the scoring with a neat finish from a corner.

Robinson got his second goal with 19 minutes remaining when a corner from Townsend was played to Dunne and his delivery from the right flank found Robinson 12 yards from goal and the defender fired in.

Townsend grabbed a third in the 87th minute when he rifled home a low effort to wrap up victory for the visitors.
