Clinical edge key to Millwall’s climb up Championship table


Millwall boss Gary Rowett praised his players for being more clinical after Millwall came from behind to beat Reading 2-1 at the Madejski Stadium.

The Lions are undefeated in their last six Championship matches and have lost just once away from home in 2021. They have drawn 14 matches – the most of any club in England’s second tier.

Rowett said: “We’ve started to have a more clinical edge to us.

 “In the vast majority of our drawn games we should have won, we had lots of chances, one-v-one with keepers.

“We missed good opportunities and unless you finish some of those off you don’t win games. There haven’t been many of those draws where we were lucky and hanging on. We probably played a lot better in some of those drawn games than we did today.

“We’ve got a good squad and a brilliant spirit, you saw that today with the likes of Matt Smith coming on, Mason Bennett and Tom Bradshaw. They haven’t played that often but came on and made a real difference for us.

“We’ve had a more clinical edge that has allowed us to win three and draw three of the last six.”
