Report: Leicester City 0-1 Millwall

ALAN Dunne hit a dramatic late winner to clinch a smash-and-grab victory for Millwall over ten-man Leicester City at the King Power Stadium.

The Foxes survived for 87 minutes after Wes Morgan's early red card but Dunne dispatched Richard Chaplow's cross to snatch the three points at the death.

Kenny Jackett made two changes to the side that started against Charlton a fortnight ago with Adam Smith and Jermaine Easter replacing Karleigh Osborne (hamstring) and Chris Taylor (muscle strain).

The Foxes were down to ten men after just three minutes when captain Wes Morgan was dismissed for tripping Andy Keogh after Dunne's through ball in behind the defence.

From the resulting free-kick, Shane Lowry's curling effort was clawed behind by Kasper Schmeichel before Adam Smith's piledriver was well-held by the Denmark international.

There was a nervous moment in the visiting defence when Danny Shittu's mistimed header allowed David Nugent to scamper clear, but the striker's tame shot was deflected wide.

Lowry came to Millwall's rescue in the 13th minute to hack Chris Wood's downward header off the line, before Easter's shot at the other end was tipped behind by the impressive Schmeichel.

The Lions had a penalty claim rejected when Chaplow's header struck Michael Keane. Rob Hulse then won possession off Paul Konchesky but his shot was comfortable for Schmeichel.

The Foxes stopper was proving an immovable object in the home goal and he was on hand again to smother Keogh's shot at the back post after Liam Trotter had flicked on Adam Smith's cross.

In the 32nd minute, Millwall had a goal disallowed for offside after Hulse touched in Easter's clever click from Chaplow's low centre.

Jack Smith then saw his rasping drive from the edge of the area blocked in front of goal as the Lions finished the first half on top, albeit without having found the opening goal.

Leicester midfielder Danny Drinkwater sliced an ambitious 30-yard effort wide of David Forde's left-hand post within 90 seconds of the restart.

Millwall created their first opportunity of the second period in the 55th minute when Hulse headed Dunne's lob back into the danger area instead of going for goal himself from close range.

Adam Smith then hammered a long-range shot straight down Schmeichel's throat but the Lions fell flat thereafter and struggled to create chances with the frequency they had done in the first half.

In fact, it took a stunning save from Forde in the 78th minute to prevent Trotter scoring an own goal after Anthony Knockaert's in-swinging delivery glanced off the midfielder's head.

But Millwall's numerical advantage finally told three minutes from time when Chaplow picked out the run of Dunne, who placed the ball into the bottom corner without breaking stride.

    A desperate performance but 3 points is what it comes down to. I'd like to have a chat with Chris Wood at the end of the season when Leicester miss playoffs and we've been at Wembley. P****.

        So would I. Another game that just passed him by. But a great result none the less. Pearson will be removed from his duties very soon. And good riddance. Oh and hulse is s*** as well. The rest were fantastic but it seemed at times we carry too many players!

    Well well well hmmmm did wood make the right decision, yes he played in front of 21000 but they still lost. Enough said about that hahahaha. The WALL played well and i do think that Easter played well, he was tricky with the ball and i think that Keogh is getting his mojo back even though he didnt score, he ran his b***** off and gave their defence major problems.

    Trotter gave a good impression of someone who didn't give a fig tonight. Don't understand it - he's hardly going to get a move to the Premier League in the summer by turning in that sort of performance. Drop him for Wright, Kenny

    Cracking result, well done lads!!! Pearson you are nothing more than a chequebook manager mate and going nowhere.
    Just had a little look at the table and see that if we were to win our two games in hand, that puts us 3 points outside the play offs although Brighton have a game in hand aswell.
    Could make for an interesting run in eh !

      Haha, Na, as funny as it is I really think he will do the impossible and have an average game, make less mistakes, help his fellow midfielders and team mates out, give away less free kicks, actually play more than 10 minutes out of the 90 he's on the pitch for, win a decent fcuking header, pass the ball instead of wind and have a proper shot at goal - which he will and score from. Hope I haven't missed anything out borders, if so I apologise.

    F*** me, Alan Dunne your giving me nightmares, good ones, but nightmares all the same. He really is ramming my words back down my throat. If he plays like this till the end of season and Henry don't play again, I think I'll do the unthinkable and vote him POTY.
    Thought he, not Keogh, deserved MOTM tonight. I really can't believe I'm saying all this about him. Shame the jackett haters don't do the same for him, but then that really would be taking it too far. It wasn't pretty tonight but that makes it all the more pleasing. We played s*** against ten men, wood and Pearson and snatched a last gasp winner and to top it all off wood gets subbed and my new fav ever player Dunney scores, haha I wonder how much you would have got for dunne and 1-0? Hopefully KJ sacks yet another manager.
    I really wanna make this the longest ever post on this site just for

    Well done Lions. Should have been two or three up at half time. Kept plugging away and had good shape at the back again. Got a deserved winner and now sniffing play offs if they win two games in hand!?
    Kenny is keeping a lid on the whole thing by playing down our performances. But four clean sheets in a row, three away is bloody brilliant.
    Another manager to get the tin tack?, Its what we do.

    Satisfying. 5 minutes injury time????? Positives from the game, Keogh put himself about and showed a lot of endeavour, the back four were solid when needed although thought Shittu had one of his poorer games, smith and dunne both played the wing back position well and a lovely finish. Negatives trotter again disappeared and Hulse is toilet only a slight improvement on marquis.

    Overall over the moon with the 3 points and glad we didn't concede against that turncoat kiwi mug.

    Oh by the way I believe we are also going to Wembley.

    Really pleased with Dunney who has bought attacking wing play into his game and his passing has improved considerably. I have always been a fan but lately i think he is playing the best football of his career. Lowry was superb as well and Keogh played really well for the team. Only negatives, shittu kept missing his headers which was weird, Trotter looked off the pace and both Hulse and Easter still haven't worked out how to play together. We were comfortable throughout but just need to be more.clinical.

    Superb boys, Dunney and Smith gave them all sorts of problems, Lowry was immense, thought Sh1ttu had his worse game for a while although he just looked after wood the w*****. Easter and Keogh were excellent, why he took Smith off and not Trotter I don't know, Chaplow is quality, Fordeeeee looks unbeatable, Hulse is terrible sorry, just don't see anything in him, but all round a very workmanlike away win, if Man utd had one like that everyone would be saying that's how you win the premier league Well done KJ now let's t*** tractor boys
