Report: Peterborough 0-3 Millwall

MILLWALL moved eight points clear of the Championship relegation zone with a crucial 3-0 win at fellow strugglers Peterborough.

The Lions, who were without key players Darius Henderson, Liam Trotter, Jimmy Abdou and Shane Lowry because of injury, took the lead after just five minutes. James Henry won the ball in midfield, exchanged passed with Andy Keogh, and sent a precise cross over for Hamer Bouazza, who headed home.

The visitors continued to carve out chances and finally doubled their lead 20 minutes from time when Keogh diverted a looping header into the far corner from Henry's wicked free-kick.

And with time ticking down, Harry Kane blasted in a ferocious drive off the post to put the gloss on another excellent away performance from Kenny Jackett's side.

With Portsmouth losing and Coventry drawing elsewhere, the win ensured Millwall extended the gap between themselves and the bottom three to eight points ahead of Saturday's trip to Nottingham Forest, who sit 21st in the table.

Peterborough: Jones, Little, Briggs (Kearns, 66mins), Zakuani, Boyd, McCann, Sinclair (Frecklington, 54mins), Rowe, Barnett, Taylor, Alcock.

Millwall: Forde, Dunne, Barron, Smith, Robinson, Ward, Bouazza (Craig, 85mins), Wright, Keogh, Kane, Henry.
