Report: Bradford City 4-0 Millwall

MILLWALL hit rock bottom on Wednesday night as they were dumped out of the FA Cup by Bradford City in a third-round replay.

The League One outfit rammed home their numerical advantage after Mark Beevers' senseless sending off in the sixth minute and were 3-0 up before half time.

Beevers was shown a straight red card for pulling back James Hanson as he ran through on goal and the striker headed in the first goal soon after.

Jon Stead squeezed in a low shot to make it 2-0 before Filipe Morais' cross was converted on the volley by Andy Halliday for Bradford's third goal.

Billy Knott, who scored twice at The Den in the original tie, then stabbed home from close range in the 57th minute after Millwall failed to clear their lines.

Substitute Francis Zoko hit the post and had a glancing header saved by David Forde as the hosts threatened to add to their total and the Lions simply capitulated.

It was an utterly embarrassing evening for Ian Holloway's side, whose season does not get any easier with the visit to The Den of third-placed Ipswich to come on Saturday.

        @The Roar:Sh*t. In that case I will stay behind the sofa, as I just can not bear to watch anymore.

    Down to 10 men or not, 3-0 at half time and a 4-0 thrashing just isn't even remotely excusable. I've always said Ollie will turn it around given the time but that performance says it all to me, we are shagged no matter whether he stays or goes. Ouch.

      @millwallchris74: IH has turned things around,he has turned it from bad to worse. Cant think of another club that would keep faith in such a poor performing manager.
