Millwall   4 - 0   Gillingham

Millwall 4-0 Gillingham

Millwall 4-0 Gillingham

Millwall hammered Gillingham to move into the automatic promotion places and leave the Gills in relegation danger.

Simon Batt put the Lions ahead after Danny Schofield played him through.

Tony Craig doubled the lead, launching a spectacular looping volley into the top corner after Steve Morison's long throw ran loose.

Schofield jinked his way through on the hour mark to fire in the third before Neil Harris headed in the fourth to seal a resounding victory.


Millwall boss Kenny Jackett told BBC London 94.9:

"Gillingham brought a very good attendance and it was a tight, competitive game for long parts.

"We did very well, we negated them to very few clear-cut chances.

"I am pleased to say that some of our goals were excellent."

Gillingham manager Mark Stimson told BBC Radio Kent:

"Millwall are a very strong side, they proved that today, but it didn't help picking up a couple of injuries (to the two centre-halves).

"We must look forward, it's in our hands and if we perform in front of our own fans like we have then we will have enough."
