Millwall

One winner and one loser from Millwall’s 4-1 win over Sheffield Wednesday

Published

on

Millwall eased any potential relegation fears by producing their biggest Championship victory of the campaign against Sheffield Wednesday on Saturday.

Gary Rowett’s team were unbeaten in four league matches, although three of those had been draws, but they produced a clinical second-half performance to move seven points clear of the bottom-three.

Having seen Kenneth Zohore cancel out Callum Paterson’s early opener, Scott Malone and Ben Thompson scored crackers before Tom Bradshaw rounded off an excellent afternoon for the Lions by scoring their fourth in stoppage-time.

Wallace? Bradshaw? – Can you name which Millwall player scored each these 15 goals this season?

1. Who scored Millwall's first goal of the season (in their 3-1 EFL Cup win against Crawley)?

Millwall are now enjoying their joint-best unbeaten run of the season, but who caught the eye at The Den?

We’ve take a look at ONE winner and ONE loser from the game in South London.

Winner – Mahlon Romeo

It’s no doubt been an extremely frustrating few weeks for the right-back.

Romeo has been Millwall’s first-choice right-back for the majority of his Millwall career, but Danny McNamara’s excellent form since returning from St Johnstone has been him drop to the bench – with this his first start since the defeat to Coventry in early January.

But instead of sulking about his lack of game-time, Romeo showed his true professionalism by turning in a solid performance against the Owls, and had Tom Bradshaw not deflected home his late strike, the defender would’ve maybe claimed his first Lions goal for more than three years.

Loser – Mason Bennett

Whilst it was an excellent one for the team, it was a bad afternoon for Bennett.

The former Derby attacker has been short of opportunities in recent weeks, and on Saturday the Lions boss opted to introduce the likes of Shaun Williams, Ben Thompson, Bradshaw and Matt Smith from the bench, meaning Bennett was an unused substitute.

Bennett has looked bright off the bench against both Watford and Norwich City, but with Rowett currently persisting on a back-three, you wonder where Bennett’s next start in a Millwall shirt is coming from.
