|Edwards 9, Ebanks-Blake 61|
WOLVES picked up their first win under new manager Dean Saunders as Millwall fell to their sixth defeat in their last seven Championship matches.
David Edwards and Sylvan Ebanks-Blake scored goals either side of half-time to secure what was ultimately a comfortable victory for the Midlands side, their first since December.
Millwall were without in-form winger James Henry, who sustained deep cuts and bruising to his left shin against Leeds United on Saturday, meaning Chris Taylor was drafted into the starting line-up.
Boss Kenny Jackett elected to drop right-back Alan Dunne and recall Tottenham loanee Adam Smith to his defence, while Liam Trotter was named on the substitutes' bench.
Millwall nearly fell behind in the second minute when Bakary Sako's inswinging corner caught out David Forde, who managed to scoop the ball off the line in the nick of time.
But the visitors did not have to wait much longer to break the deadlock as David Edwards hooked in Ebanks-Blake's cross from the right to make it 1-0 in the ninth minute.
The Lions' poor start to the game was compounded when Arsenal loanee Benik Afobe was forced off with an injury moments later and was replaced by Andy Keogh.
Shane Lowry made a crucial last-ditch block to prevent Jake Cassidy from scoring a second before Keogh's appeals for a penalty fell on deaf ears at the other end.
Incredibly, Millwall did not muster an attempt on goal until the 40th minute when Jimmy Abdou's shot from the edge of the area was blocked behind for a corner.
That half-chance briefly galvanised the Lions, who forced goalkeeper Carl Ikeme into his first save of the evening when he dived low to his right to keep out Lowry's header.
Millwall's resurgence continued after half-time and they should have equalised when Taylor got to the byline and cut the ball back for Keogh, who was inches away from touching the ball home.
But they were hit by a killer sucker-punch in the 61st minute when Ebanks-Blake leapt acrobatically into the air and sent a ferocious bicycle kick into the bottom corner.
That goal knocked the stuffing out of the Lions although they nearly pulled one back five minutes later when Smith drove into the area and drilled goalwards, but Ikeme held onto his shot.
The game fell flat again and Danny Shittu's mis-timed shot from Martyn Woolford's cross in the 85th minute was the last goalmouth action of note on a night to forget in South London.
