Millwall winger Connor Mahoney has taken to Twitter after last night’s south London derby win, which has been well received by many Lions fans.
Gary Rowett’s side claimed a 1-0 win at the Valley, extending their unbeaten run against the Addicks to 12 games.
It was a cagey and scrappy affair at the Valley and one in which both goalkeepers produced some quality saves to keep the game level.
Millwall grabbed their decisive goal in the 81st minute through centre-back Jake Cooper, who blasted a strike into the roof of the net from short range.
Mahoney played a key role in the build-up, cutting inside from the left-wing and unleashing a ferocious strike which Phillips could only parry into the path of the oncoming Cooper.
The 23-year-old took to Twitter after the game to reveal his thoughts on the result.
Simply lovely ⚽️ @MillwallFC

The winger joined Millwall from Bournemouth in the summer and has been restricted to mostly substitute appearances.
Both the player and the club will likely have been hoping for more contributions in the final third – with Mahoney adding just two goals and three assists this term.

The part he played in last night’s goal appears to have made him a popular figure at the Den, however, and many Millwall fans took to Twitter to reply to his message.
