Millwall loan watch: Part-timers one game away from history

Loan Watch

MILLWALL’s Tom King kept his ninth clean sheet in 17 games as Braintree defeated Grimbsy 1-0 in the first leg of their National League play-off semi-final on Thursday night.

Kenny Davis gave the away side the lead from the spot in the 53rd minute before King saved from Mariners striker Padraig Amond.

Grimbsy, last season’s beaten play-off finalists, who have been out of the Football League since 2010, dominated possession in the second half but couldn’t break down Danny Cowley’s side.

The second leg takes place this Sunday at Cressing Road where King can help part-timers Braintree into the Football League for the first time in their history.
