Millwall   2 - 1   Leeds United

Millwall v Leeds

Millwall 2-1 Leeds United

Leeds saw their lead at the top of League One reduced to one point after losing a tight game at Millwall.

The Yorkshire side were the only unbeaten team in England going into the match but fell behind when Neil Harris headed home Chris Hackett's cross.

Patrick Kisnorbo equalised when he headed home a Robert Snodgrass corner.

Harris and Leeds striker Jermaine Beckford missed easy chances before Gary Alexander met a Danny Schofield cross to head the winner.


Millwall manager Kenny Jackett told BBC London 94.9:

"It was a great game. I thought the first half was 50/50 but second half we actually stepped on and had several chances and most of the play.

"Leeds are so dangerous on the break and they've got genuine power at set-pieces and are as strong as anybody physically in the league.

"If you're looking at the sides at the top of the table there are some very good teams there so we need to win the big games like this to stay in competition with them, and make sure our players and supporters keep believing."
