Millwall go fifth after win over leaders Burton
Millwall climbed back up to fifth in the Sky Bet League One standings with a 2-0 victory after a quick-fire start blew leaders Burton away at The Den.
Early strikes from Aiden O’Brien and Lee Gregory secured the points for the Lions.
Things could have been different for the Brewers had Mark Duffy done better with a clear sight of goal but he fired straight at the keeper.
Moments later Gregory sprang into action, racing onto a long ball before squaring for O’Brien to smash home.
The striker then got himself on the scoresheet for the 12th time in 2016 as he rounded the goalkeeper to finish.
O’Brien’s second and Millwall’s third nearly arrived on the hour mark as he was inches away from meeting Steve Morison’s flick on at the back post.
Then Gregory teed up Ben Thompson late on but he shot straight at the keeper.
Tom Flanagan headed over and Tyler Walker then had a goal ruled out for offside as Burton’s bid to battle their way back into the game was to no avail.
