‘I don’t understand the protection for him’ – Many Millwall fans react to key figure after FA Cup exit

Millwall’s FA Cup campaign was ended following a damaging defeat to Bristol City in the fourth round on Saturday.

Gary Rowett’s men would’ve been hoping to build off their key victory at Huddersfield Town in midweek, but exited the competition in the last 32 stage for the second season in succession.

The first-half was positive from a Lions perspective, but Rowett’s team found themselves behind after Frank Fielding, against his former club, upended Famara Diedhiou in the box – leaving the Robins striker to stroke home the resulting penalty.

Naki Wells’ deflected free-kick put Bristol City in complete control at The Den, before Antoine Semenyo ensured their place in the fifth round with an excellent finish 18 minutes from full-time.
