PRESTON 0 MILLWALL 2
By Alex Grace
A two-goal victory at Preston this evening was enough to put Millwall joint third in the Championship table.
On-loan West Brom forward Kenneth Zohore opened the scoring in the 54th minute of his full debut.
And Jed Wallace added his fourth goal of the season from the penalty spot in the 84th minute to clinch the points and take their unbeaten run to four games – and three victories out of four matches on the road.
They achieved victory with manager Gary Rowett, assistant Adam Barratt, technical coach Joe Carnell, performance coach Dave Carolan and goalkeeping coach Lee Turner all absent, watching the game via video link.
The result put them temporarily in joint second, but with rivals Bristol City, a point behind, and Bournemouth, two points behind, were still playing each other at the Cherries’ Vitality Stadium, once known as Dean Court. The hosts’ 1-0 victory in that game took them into second spot and left the Lions in join third with Swansea – both clubs have a goal difference of plus-five.
