Zian Flemming has officially been credited as Millwall’s first goalscorer in Saturday’s 2-1 win over Blackpool.
The Amsterdam-born attacker headed in Scott Malone’s corner in the 14th minute.
But Press Association, who supply statistics to a number of media outlets, marked it down as an own goal by Seasiders keeper Dan Grimshaw.
The EFL have confirmed to the South London Press that Flemming has officially been awarded the goal, his first for the Lions since his £1.7million move from Fortuna Sittard in the summer.
They add that Flemming was marked down as the goalscorer by referee Darren Bond and by Millwall post-match.
The sites that listed it as a Grimshaw own goal will be updated in due course.
