Lee Gregory has moved on to 69 career goals for Millwall after being awarded their goal in the EFL Cup defeat to Fulham last month.
Initially it had been credited to Tom Elliott.
But we had a story a few days later revealing that Gregory was claiming a final touch.
And Millwall confirmed on their Twitter feed today that the striker had now been credited with it.

It means Gregory has seven goals this season – clearly leading the way in the scoring charts.
He has netted 69 times in 203 appearances for the Lions.
