Coventry City and Millwall played a 1-1 draw at The Den, but visiting manager Mark Robins admitted his side were fortunate.
Mark Robins’ side took the lead early in the first half when Viktor Gyökeres gave the Sky Blues the lead with his third in three games. Millwall equalised shortly after that when George Saville got on the end of a Jed Wallace assist.
However, Coventry City manager admitted Millwall’s disallowed goal just before half-time should have stood.
Tom Bradshaw seemingly gave Millwall the lead when he headed Scott Malone’s cross into the corner of the goal, only for the assistant referee to rule the goal out for offside.

Robins said in his post-match press conference: “They will feel aggrieved because it looked, to all intents and purposes, like a good goal.
“Relief from our perspective, on that score. But really, on the balance of play, got to really be happy with a point.”

This draw now means that Coventry City have lost just twice this season and are unbeaten in their last three games while sitting 4th in the table.
For Millwall, they’re unbeaten in their last four, drawing their last three games.
Gary Rowett will quite rightly be disappointed with the decision as scoring to go ahead on the stroke of half-time is a game-changer for any side.
However, it was another positive performance against a tough side in Millwall. It was also a bit of luck his side needed playing away at The Den.
It also means his side carries on their good form as they look to be the league’s dark horses this season.
