Millwall   2 - 1   Walsall

Millwall v Walsall

Millwall 2-1 Walsall

In-form striker Steve Morison hit a second-half brace to move Millwall above Walsall in the promotion race.

Manny Smith gave Walsall the lead after just eight minutes, volleying home unmarked from Peter Till's corner kick.

Millwall drew level shortly before the hour mark when Ashley Grimes released Morison, who converted with ease.

After 76 minutes Morison struck again, curling home his fourth goal in four games after substitute Jason Price had put him clear.


Millwall manager Kenny Jackett told BBC London 94.9:

"I felt we started quite slow, we didn't put the the ball behind them, we didn't win enough tackles and then we gave a poor goal away, so I was disappointed to be 1-0 down.

"But from there I've got to say, there was only one team in it.

"If you look at shots, possession, chances and being in good positions, it was one way traffic after that and a deserved result."
