Report: Sheffield Wednesday 1-1 Millwall

MAGAYE Gueye hit a last-gasp equaliser to keep Millwall's unbeaten run alive.

The hosts opened the scoring when Chris Maguire's free kick squeezed through the wall and when Shaun Williams missed a penalty, the Lions were heading for their first defeat in 12.

But Gueye finished off a brilliantly-worked counter attack with a lethal finish in the final minute of stoppage time to rescue a point.

Ian Holloway made just the one change to his side following Saturday's win at Fulham, with Lee Gregory replacing Ricardo Fuller in the starting XI.

For the hosts, Jose Semedo replaced Keiran Lee, who suffered a groin injury at the weekend.

The Owls' £800,000-signing Stevie May had the game's first chance, hooking Joe Mattock's cross wide of the post in the third minute.

Millwall dominated possession in the opening stages, with the stats indicating they'd seen 69% of the ball after half an hour, but struggled to create clear-cut chances.

Lee Martin went close from a dead-ball opportunity but curled wide of Keiren Westwood's left-hand post from 22 yards.

At the other end, towering striker Atdhe Nuhiu sprung his marker at a corner but powered a header over the bar.

From the opposite flank, Jacques Maghoma's delivery was met by Tom Lees at the far post but his downward header was seized upon by David Forde.

The hosts grew in stature at the half wore on but Martyn Woolford spurned a golden chance to break the deadlock when he spooned over the bar from Gregory's clever cut-back.

Holloway's side survived a penalty scare on the stroke of half time when Forde's miscued clearance landed straight at the feet of Maghoma, who then went down under pressure from Shaun Williams.

Referee Nigel Miller waved away Wednesday's appeals and though he didn't book Maghoma for diving, Alan Dunne blasted the winger for simulation as he climbed to his feet.

Both sides made a sluggish start to the second half but the Owls broke the deadlock from a dead-ball situation in the 57th minute.

After Martin was harshly adjudged to have handled on the edge of the area, Maguire stepped up and slammed a shot through a flimsy wall and beyond the helpless Forde.

Woolford's 30-yard pile-driver brushed the roof of the net before Holloway introduced Fuller and Gueye from the bench as Millwall went in search of a response.

And with five minutes to go, the Lions were handed a lifeline when Martin was clattered by Westwood inside the area and ref Miller pointed to the spot.

After a long delay, Williams opted for placement over power but watched on in agony as his effort bounced off the post and away to safety.

That looked to be that, but the Lions managed to carve out one more chance deep into stoppage time – and this time they capitalised.

Edwards burst forward on the overlap and measured a precise pass into the feet of Fuller who, with his back to goal, showed great composure to lay the ball off to Gueye.

With Wednesday defenders lunging in from all sides, the Frenchman cut inside and rifled an unstoppable drive into the roof of the net before sprinting to the bench in celebration.

    Up until now I think most of us, certainly those who have even a short history of supporting the Lions, have been waiting for this small revolution to start to full apart, tonight I think we can honestly say that our club have really turned a corner. I was not at the match but from what I read this is a team that players subs and all will not give up, can't wait to see the goal but Fuller did what he has always done around the box and stayed calm, Gaye did what we all thought he could do and Edwards showed that we were all wrong in thinking 35 is to old. Well done lads we are once again 'Real Wall'.

    When ollie signed edwards some people moaned he was to old,when he signed fuller some people said he was past it.
    Well edwards has been a star and we all now wonder why big mick let him go,fuller has been involved big time in two important goals bringing four points.
    Shall we just trust in ollie and stop worrying about who we should bring untill olli signs a player.

    I cannot get over how different things are compared to this time last season. Confidence on the ball, positive play and a determination to succeed - what a difference the right manager makes! WELL DONE WALL - even with a missed penalty we don't give up to the final whistle!

    Just got back from the match (I live oop north these days) - it was a decent game and we had a lot of great passing possession but looked a bit ropey from 65 minutes (tiredness from Fulham?). Some Wednesday mug was in the away end and celebrating their goal but was quickly shown the error of his ways by some 'Wall gents.

    Forde needs to stop trying to get on the television with his nutmegging - we're going to get caught out!!
    Williams played well and look calm on the ball throughout but it was a very poor penalty
    Edwards is class - simple as
    Dunney and Beeevers looked good and kept their two big lumps quiet all game
    Malone looked as decent as he did in his good games last year but didnt really see him pushing up too much.
    Woolford and Martin will be stalwarts this season and will get (and set up) lots of goals (but someone tell Martin to change his pink boots)
    Jimmy wont stop running
    McDonald is a revelation under Holloway but looked tired by the end
    Gregory - im not convinced yet but he chased everything down

      @billythecrim: Fair assessment mate I just got back to my hotel room in Sheffield, had a few more beers. I think Fuller was the turning point for us, with all the possession we had in the 1st half we never looked like scoring. We definitely need another striker to mix things up the players were feeling it from Saturday in my opinion. Another game unbeaten wasn't that bad a penalty hit the inside of the post after all the jestering about by the p**** in goal. Well done all you fellow Lions 500 or so outsinging 20,000, I'll take the 500 Millwall boys (and girls) any day of the week. Well done the boys showing the moron the door who thought he single handed take a Millwall end dunno what he was smoking. Roll on Rotherham, having a few more before bed thanks Millwall.

    That is an amazing point that we would not have got a sniff of in the last couple of seasons. Missing a penalty and still having the nuts to push on and rescue the point and maintain to unbeaten run goes above and beyond for me.

    Its a crazy division the championship and to be anywhere near the right end come what May is an achievement in its self.

    Just got home from work. This is a game we would have lost last year. Wonderful point. If we can keep this up it's 90 odd points for the season. We need fortress DEN, something we have not had in recent years. A goal scorer would be nice, I keep looking at the boy Pope at Port Vale.

    Back from Hillsborough and just want to say that I'm massively proud of the way the lads battled to the bitter end to get that point. Could of easily let their heads drop after the penalty - but everybody kept their head and showed great composure in going forward and getting that goal. The image of that Owls defense opening up - little lay off from Fuller - and Maggie smashing the ball into the roof of the net - will stay with me for many years to come!
    Keep it up lads - we are with you all the way.. COYL! MIIIIIILLLLLLLLL!!

    While ALL the fans seem to be in a positive frame of mind, can I now suggest that we all agree, despite all the negative posts in the past?
    1 Ollie knows what he is doing.
    2 All players are giving doing their very best for the team.
    3 We, as fans, should be just like them and never give up the encouragement, even when we inevitably go behind or lose a couple of games.
    Seems to me the team, and management, do really feed of us to enable them to keep going, hence the back to the wall efforts against Fulham which would have been definitely 1-1 or even 2-1 last year in the same circumstances, and last night would have been a 1-0, no question.

    Strange how things work out in life and football maybe the Lomas appointment was in a strange way was the kick up the a*** our fantastic club needed , after that farce the club and chairman realised we needed to be more ambitious so we went for Olly and he has brought a whole new mentality to the place .
    As previous posts have stated last season we would have lost that game but he has shown that working hard and doing what is asked of them can pay off you can see the players believe in it and now most of us do .
    Well done to the fans that travelled up to Hillsborough last night and who played their part in our Revolution

Judging by the way he was screaming at em to move up the pitch it won't be long until he & the players get it right well done again.

    @block 28: block i agree ,some things are best left in the past and we should look to the future which is with ollie at the helm,he took the team to portugal some fans thought it a waste of money as with the laying of new pitches some fans said the money should have been spent on new players,but ollie is proving good infrastructure is a must.
    What with the amount of home grown youngsters getting their names in the frame,the way he has turned around the attitude of some players mcdonald being the prime example is nothing short of brilliant,our job is to scream our lungs out no matter what,this in turn will help future transfer targets say yes to coming to millwall.

    I have to hold my hands up here and say that when we signed Edwards I thought it was a less than inspiring signing given the mess we were in. How wrong can you be?! Last night he was unbelievable, both in defending and getting forward, he looks at least 10 years younger than his age. To Wednesday's credit, they did their homework on us and blocked the service to Woolford and Martin and there was very little joy for us in wide positions (the reason for the over-passing that IH spoke about I think) but the way we stuck at it and never gave up was really encouraging. Fuller too proved last night that his much criticised goal ratio is irrelevant when his all round play and awareness is so intelligent when involved in attacks.

    The assist for that goal (Edwards & Fuller) had a combined age of nearly 70. Good on the oldies I say.

    On another note, Gueye looks the sort of player that unnerves defences as soon as he gets the ball and the player celebrations that greeted his goal were the among the biggest I've seen since the Harris goal at Watford so there's clearly nothing wrong with team spirit right now.
