MILLWALL were beaten comfortably by Wigan in the semi-finals of the FA Cup thanks to goals from Shaun Maloney and Callum McManaman at Wembley.
Maloney volleyed in the opener midway through the opening period and McManaman cooly added a second after a spirited fightback from the Lions in the second-half.
Kenny Jackett made three changes to the side that started against Sheffield Wednesday in midweek, with Jack Smith, James Henry and Andy Keogh included in a 4-3-3 formation.
Liam Trotter passed a fitness test after sustaining a knee injury in midweek but was named amongst the substitutes, alongside Nathan Tyson, fit again after a hamstring strain.
Millwall created an opportunity within the first 60 seconds as Keogh leapt above his marker to meet Shane Lowry's deep cross, but the ball dropped well wide.
Mark Beevers made an important intervention to prevent Arouna Kone poking the ball past David Forde, who then made a flying save from McManaman.
But there was little Forde could to do to prevent the Latics taking the lead in the 25th minute when Kone picked out the run of Maloney, who cooly swept home on the volley.
Chris Taylor saw his goal-bound header from Henry's corner blocked before McManaman curled high and wide at the end of a jinking run to the edge of the box.
Forde was called into action shortly before half-time to parry Jordi Gomez's first-time effort from the edge of the area after Kone's cut-back.
In the 51st minute, McManaman tricked his way past Jimmy Abdou and Alan Dunne only to blaze over from a tight angle with Kone waiting for the pass in the centre.
But the Lions rallied and after Henry had curled a free-kick narrowly over, Dunne's cross was nicked off the toes of Keogh, who looked certain to score.
Mark Beevers' header from Lowry's cross was deflected over his own bar by Paul Sharner but, in arguably Millwall's best spell of the game, McManaman rounded Forde to score Wigan's second.
Kone could have added a third in the 85th minute but Forde made a smart save with his legs.
