Millwall 2-1 Middlesbrough

Millwall 2-1 Middlesbrough

Millwall   2 - 1   Middlesbrough

Steve Morison and Liam Trotter scored first-half goals as Millwall cruised to a Carling Cup second-round victory.

Millwall opened the scoring when Matthew Kilgallon brought down Alan Dunne in the penalty area and Morison converted the resultant spot-kick.

Trotter made it 2-0 when he finished from Neil Harris's header across goal.

Julio Arca's 25-yard strike hit the bar as Boro fought back before David Forde misjudged Scott McDonald's shot to gift the visitors a consolation goal.

But overall, Millwall boss Kenny Jackett's side barely got out of second gear as they brushed Boro aside.

Former Stevenage striker Morison impressed throughout, and the Lions were worthy winners.

The only blot on the the home side's copybook was the error from Forde, who seemed to think the ball was going over from McDonald's strike and he bizarrely let the ball go into his net.

But it did not prove costly for the keeper as his side advanced to third round.

However, Middlesbrough boss Gordon Strachan was unhappy with the penalty decision.

He told BBC Tees: "In life as, I said to the referee, I get paid more than the coaches, and the referee more than the linesman, because I have to make the big decisions.

"If I have to release a player, then I have to look him in the eye and make that decision, I don't send my backroom staff to tell them they're freed.

"So if you're five yards away and there's a decision to be made, you decide no penalty, there's no point in looking at someone 15 yards away to say 'is that a penalty?'"
