|Henry 13||Venue: The Den
|Tomlin 7, 55, Rowe 32, Mendez-Laing 59, Boyd 88|
MILLWALL were blown away by bottom-of-the-table Peterborough as they fell to their fifth-straight league defeat in front of just 8,769 fans at The Den.
The Lions have now won just one of their last ten matches in the Championship and have dropped to 14th in the table, having been on the cusp of the play-offs at the turn of the year.
Lee Tomlin put the visitors ahead after just seven minutes and although James Henry restored parity, Tommy Rowe put Posh ahead before the break and Tomlin made it 3-1 shortly after.
Nathaniel Mendez-Laing put the result beyond doubt with a fine solo effort before Shane Lowry was shown a straight red card and Boyd tapped in a late fifth.
Winger Boyd had the first effort on target of the match but his cross-shot never looked like troubling David Forde at his near post.
But the deadlock was broken in the seventh minute when Boyd was given time and space to pick out the onrushing Tomlin, who smashed the ball into the top corner of the net.
A minute later and Peterborough could have doubled their lead when left-back Rowe swept in a cross which Dwight Gayle mis-hit just wide.
The Lions' first real chance came in the eleventh minute when Bobby Olejnik's poor goal-kick fell to Liam Trotter, who played the ball to Henry but the winger's cross narrowly evaded Rob Hulse.
Trotter was involved again three minutes later when he picked the ball up on the edge of the box and shifted the ball out of his feet before seeing his placed shot kept out by Olejnik.
But there was nothing Olejnik could do to prevent Henry from drawing Millwall level with a superb lob with the outside of his foot after Hulse's clever dummy in the 13th minute.
Within moments of the restart, Henry bamboozled Mendez-Laing before crossing for Afobe, whose left-footed shot flew straight into Olejnik's arms.
Henry almost turned how to order lexapro provider when his chipped cross was knocked back across goal by Afobe to Trotter, but his goal-bound effort was charged down by Gabriel Zakuani.
Trotter then found space on the edge of the area before attempting to place his shot when he perhaps should have gone for power.
But in the 32nd minute, Boyd nicked the ball off the toes of Adam Smith and had time to roll a pass to Rowe, who expertly finished into the corner with the outside of his foot to make it 2-1.
At the interval, Martyn Woolford and Alan Dunne came on for Afobe and Smith, with Henry moving to his preferred right-wing position.
But with only ten minutes gone in the second-half, Peterborough extended their lead when Boyd teed up Tomlin, who tucked the ball into the bottom corner from inside the area.
Peterborough went 4-1 up eight minutes later when Mendez-Laing picked the ball up in the right channel, cut inside and unleashed an unstoppable strike into the top corner.
Millwall thought they had pulled one back when Keogh tapped in after Abdou's shot had been parried by Olejnik, but the Irishman was flagged offside .
Matters got worse for the home side in the 68th minute when Lowry was shown a straight red card for a trip on Gayle, who was clean-through on goal.
With the Lions tiring, a hopeful long-range effort from Keogh – who was extremely quiet throughout – led to a Henry corner which was met by Osborne, forcing Olejnik to tip over from under his bar.
But Boyd compounded Millwall's misery when he played a smart one-two with Gayle before taking a touch and toe-poking the ball past Forde.
