Millwall put in a professional performance to place their name into the FA Cup round four draw, defeating Boreham Wood 2-0 away from home.
Goals from West Brom loanee Kenneth Zohore – who has just recently returned from a long injury lay-off – and wing back Scott Malone secured a victory for the Lions over the brave National League outfit.
Gary Rowett named a strong line-up to face the Hertfordshire side, with the likes of Jake Cooper, Ryan Woods and Shaun Hutchinson all starting.
They were utterly dominant as they had 28 shots to their opposition’s four – eight of those 28 being on target – and the scoreline really should have been more comfortable.
Did Millwall sign each of these 14 players for more or less than £500,000?
Millwall did get a tad fortunate in the second half though when Jake Cooper should have been sent off for a second booking according to reports, but he remained on the field as the Londoners secured their win.
Rowett handed a chance to some youngsters, including Tyler Burey on the wing, but it was right wing back Danny McNamara who stood out the most to Millwall fans.
The 22-year-old Irishman has just been recalled from a loan spell at St Johnstone in Scotland and was immediately thrust into the line-up today, and more-than proved he’s ready to battle Mahlon Romeo for a starting spot.
Millwall supporters have been reacting to McNamara’s performance that will leave Romeo fearing for his place – check out the best reactions below.
Danny McNamara 👏🏼👏🏼

Very impressed with Danny McNamara, has come back from St Johnstone full of energy and confidence. I think Marlon has a fight on his hands #coyl

Early days and not the best quality of opponent to really test him but Danny McNamara looks class

McNamara clearly better than Romeo but it has to be remembered the opposition as well. But I would start McNamara next game

Obviously against non-league oppo but McNamara has been class. Great energy and pace, gets up the line really well. Going to be great competition for Romeo.
