Millwall   1 - 1   Derby

Kris Commons equalised Lewis Grabban's opener to earn Championship side Derby an FA Cup replay against Millwall.

League One Millwall went ahead in the third-round clash when Grabban tucked home his first goal of the season after Chris Hackett's cross.

But the lead did not last long as Commons capitalised on some hesitant defending to fire in from 10 yards.

Chances fell to both sides but Millwall pushed hardest and their Championship opponents were left hanging on.

The sides will meet at Pride Park on 13 or 14 January to decide who progresses to round four.

With Derby struggling in the second tier with just one away win all season, Millwall went straight on the attack.

They almost went ahead when defender Jack Smith strode forward and drove narrowly wide before Dave Martin saw a shot deflected off target.

Hackett then played in Grabban with a superb cross-field ball but the winger's angled drive crashed into the side-netting.

The hosts survived a scare on the stroke of half-time when Commons' shot took a wicked deflection off Jimmy Abdou and Paul Robinson had to head the ball off the line.

The goal Millwall had been threatening eventually came in the 49th minute when Hackett swung in a high cross and Grabban fired past Rams goalkeeper Stephen Bywater.

However, the lead lasted barely three minutes. Tony Craig could only head Dean Moxey's throw-in to the feet of Commons and the Scotland midfielder lashed the ball home for his second goal of the campaign.

Both sides had chances to win the contest with Martin heading Marc Laird's cross wide and Hulse finding the side-netting.

Millwall striker Steve Morison, who has scored seven goals in his last seven games, had a header hacked off the line and saw his follow-up shot blocked.

And in the dying seconds Morison put another shot inches wide as the Rams held out.


Millwall manager Kenny Jackett told BBC London 94.9:

"There is some disappointment, because it was a winning performance from us.

"We got our noses in front, conceded too quickly and too easily for me and it went a little bit dead after the goal.

"But that's the only thing I can really criticise the side for, because there were a lot of positives today."
