TEN-MAN Millwall suffered a humiliating loss at the hands of Southend United in the third round of the FA Cup.
The Lions were already 1-0 down to Barry Corr's header when Jermaine Easter was shown a straight red card for an alleged stamp.
Will Atkinson added a second goal before half time and pitiful defending allowed Michael Timlin to score a third.
Martyn Woolford pulled one back for the visitors but there was still time for Ryan Leonard to score again in stoppage time.
Caretaker bosses Neil Harris and Scott Fitzgerald freshened the team up by starting Danny Shittu, Jermaine Easter and Lee Martin, but Millwall were lacklustre from the word go.
The Lions could have been 1-0 down after nine minutes when Anthony Straker, Michael Timlin and Barry Corr all had efforts cleared off the line in quick succession.
But Corr broke the deadlock when he rose unchallenged inside the six yard box to head in John White's cross.
A floodlight failure forced both sets of players off the field midway through the first half but the match resumed after a 17-minute delay.
Martin had Millwall's first effort on goal when he sprinted clear down the left wing and curled over from the corner of the area.
The visitors' afternoon went from bad to worse when Easter was given his marching orders for leaving in a foot on Coker as he jumped over the left-back's tackle.
And Southend made it 2-0 in first-half stoppage time when Atkinson exchanged passes with Corr and Timlin before dinking the ball over Forde.
White headed over from a corner when it looked easier to score in the 54th minute as the Shrimpers continued to dominate.
And after Nicky Bailey made a hash of clearing a simple cross into the box, the ball fell to Timlin whose shot went straight through Forde's arms.
Substitute Woolford pulled one back when he brought down Morison's cross with his chest and volleyed into the bottom corner.
But that goal did little to change the pattern of the game as Southend continued to create the better chances.
In the 68th minute, Forde made a fingertip save to keep out Ryan Leonard's 40-yard chip that looked to be creeping in under the bar.
Corr should have scored his second goal of the afternoon – and Southend's fourth – when he latched onto Straker's cross, but the striker headed against the post.
Leonard did add a fourth deep into six minutes of stoppage time to put the seal on an instantly forgettable afternoon.
