|Woolford 64, Malone 75||Venue: The Den
MILLWALL produced a rousing second-half performance to see off Leeds United and seal their third straight league win.
After an uneventful opening, the Lions edged in front after the break when Martyn Woolford drilled in from 20 yards.
And Scott Malone finished off a slick move to make it 2-0 and secure the points.
Danny Shittu returned to Millwall's starting line up in the absence of the injured Mark Beevers, whilst Jermaine Easter came in for Scott McDonald after the striker failed to recover from a knee injury picked up against Charlton.
There was an early scare for the home side as Rodolph Austin seized on a moment of hesitancy in the Lions' midfield and rifled a yard wide of the far post.
But it was Millwall who came closest to breaking the deadlock in a scrappy opening 45 minutes when Martyn Waghorn's shot came back off the woodwork and Woolford sliced the rebound over from a tight angle.
In the 32nd minute, Shittu headed over from Waghorn's corner before, at the other end, Luke Murphy's first-time drive sailed over David Forde's bar.
The Lions thought they should have been awarded a penalty when Malone broke into the area and was brought down by Austin, but referee Chris Foy waived away their appeals.
United defender Jason Pearce stabbed over from close range just before half time as the sides went in level at the break.
Liam Trotter had a chance to open the scoring within 90 seconds of the restart when the ball ricocheted into his path on the edge of the area but the midfielder curled over.
Leeds should have gone ahead when Alex Mowatt picked out Ross McCormack inside the six yard box, but the Scotland international somehow glanced wide with the goal at his mercy.
And Millwall made the visitors pay for that glaring miss in the 64th minute when substitute Lee Martin picked out the run of Woolford, who steadied himself before slamming his shot into the bottom corner.
Spurred on by a vociferous Den crowd, the Lions soon added a second goal as Malone dispatched Trotter's cut back beyond Paddy Kenny.
Malone nearly undid his good work with a bizarre own goal moments later, but, having knocked the ball past goalkeeper Forde, he scampered back to make a vital clearance on the line.
Forde made his first meaningful save of the afternoon in the 83rd minute when Austin latched onto McCormack's pass, but the Republic of Ireland stopper smothered the Jamaican's effort.
Woolford could have added his second and the Lions' third goal when he lifted Trotter's pass over the advancing Kenny, but the ball bounced agonisingly off the post.
