Report: Millwall 1-1 Sheffield Wednesday

DJ Campbell scored on his debut to rescue Millwall a point in a bad-tempered draw with Sheffield Wednesday at The Den.

Campbell headed in from close range after Liam Trotter's effort had come back off the post to cancel out Giles Coke's opener for the visitors.

The game ended on a sour note with Shane Lowry and Coke both shown red cards for their involvement in a mass brawl, which led to two other players being booked.

Boss Ian Holloway made two changes to the side that started against Ipswich Town, with Stephen Bywater and Martyn Woolford replacing David Forde and Scott McDonald.

Millwall came flying out of the traps, creating a string of early chances.

Miguel Llera made a vital interception in the third minute to steal the ball off the toes of Lee Martin, who had latched onto Woolford's clever pass inside the area.

From the resulting corner, Steve Morison headed over.

In the 11th minute, another Martin corner caused problems in the Wednesday box, but this time Chris Kirkland held onto Danny Shittu's effort.

Morison then worked a yard of space for himself inside the area by shifting the ball onto his left foot, but his effort was deflected away from goal by Kirkland.

The Lions should have broken the deadlock in the 14th minute when Oguchi Onyewu's lazy back pass went straight to Martin, but he failed to beat Kirkland.

Having been camped inside their own half for most of the opening quarter of an hour, the Owls finally came to life.

And they could have gone 1-0 in front when Nicky Bailey's under-hit pass fell to Jeremy Helan, whose cross was headed over by Atdhe Nuhiu inside the six yard box.

Martin twisted his way past two defenders but saw his shot blocked by a third, before Chris Maguire blazed over at the other end as the sides went in level at the break.

Kirkland made a fingertip-save to deny Millwall a dream start to the second half, somehow tipping Morison's looping header around the post.

At the other end, Bywater fumbled a simple cross but redeemed himself by scrambling the ball away from the feet of Nuhiu, who looked certain to score.

Bywater held onto substitute Caolan Lavery's curling drive before DJ Campbell was brought on to replace Andy Keogh in the 55th minute.

Morison carved out an opening for sub Liam Feeney in the 65th minute, squaring the ball across the face of goal to the far post, but the winger stabbed wide.

That miss proved costly when Coke raced onto a defence-splitting pass, rounded Bywater and slotted into an empty net.

Nuhiu then hit the bar as the Owls pushed for a killer second goal.

But the Lions drew level ten minutes from time when Campbell, who should have been awarded a penalty moments earlier, headed into an empty net.

As the game entered stoppage time, Lowry and Coke clashed on the touchline and, after both sets of players were pulled apart, referee Lee Probert brandished the red card.

That was not the end of the controversy, though, as Kirkland appeared to use his hand outside of his area to block Campbell's shot in stoppage time, but Probert waved play on.

    Could’ve been worse. At least we got something out of the game - on a night when only Doncaster won out of the bottom teams (and best of all gave Charlton a good beating).

    Maybe it’s a timely wake-up call that staying up isn’t the foregone conclusion we were all starting to believe. A long way and lots of hard work to do yet .

      @Micky Lions: I think you were in a small minority if you thought safety was a formality because of one win against Ipswich - having said that we should be able to hold off Charlton Yeovil and Barnsley and catch Blackpool

    Although you cant fault his passion, Lowry is a liability and either needs to buck up or f*ck off. He's left us with another crease in the defence which at first seemed to be straightening out.

    The ref lost the game in a big way, definitely a penalty and Kirkland handled outside the box amongst other things. Other than that I thought wall were good for 3 points, troter needs to sort his life out in a big way. Denied the victory by an inept ref. But watch the bottle throwing from the south stand take the headlines.

      @mfc1rob: trotter is just slow - he tries hard but the ball moves too quickly for him - he looked better last 15 mins when players couldn't run away from him - use him last 20mins for impact when he has more time on the ball

          @82wall: He set the goal up that will do for me. He has the most assists and scores a few. Martin has missed two sitters in a row but gets let off the hook.

    As usual we played against twelve men with a git of a ref who denied Millwall 2 clear penalty calls. But the fighting spirit within the side we must applaud, and the IH effect is beginning to get through to the team. Well done now for Reading.

    I'd like to see tge stats for this game, sounds like we totally outplayed that lot! Still.....stats mean nothing when your s*** infront of goal. Martin missed yet another sitter! Seems like he has some pace and skill but can't hold his nerve infront of goal!

    Draw was about right. Yes we should have had a penalty and Feeney missed a sitter but Wednesday had 3 good chances in about 5 mins during the first half so let's take the point and get ready for Reading!

    Well done DJ, he told me he was going to score 😉

    @mickylions: excuse me , but we did not all think staying up was a foregone conclusion, ( see my previous posts ) some who get carried away on here did, but not all. Lowry must go,can't be trusted,keeps letting us down,time after time, the other fella threw him to the ground, if he'd laid there rolling around, he 'd have got him sent off, but no, get rid. As for that umpty back ref, cheat, yeah cheat, anyone falling over from either no, or minimal contact in the centre third of the pitch, and he whistles up, same thing in the box and he don't , how does he explain that. Premier ref, iv'e s*** em.

    I thought we was unlucky not to win. Wednesday are on fire at the moment so its not that bad a result especially fighting back after going 1 nil down with 20 mins left.
    Trotter Martin Feeney Woolford all very poor for me tonight.
    Morison was my MOM.
    Knew DJ would score tonight. We are going to need his goals.
    Williams did alright in the little time we saw him. Dont mind getting stuck in either.
    Cracking nights entertainment in my opinion.
    All about survival and I am confident we will stay up.
    Stay positive all.

    Well glad I went, we were worthy of all 3 points in my opinion. Shittu was immense again, and half the size if when I last saw him! Bywater worries me. Lowry deserved to go, as did Coke, but thought more should have gone! Brings me nicely onto Probert.... Thought in the first half he did well, that until Wednesday started diving. From my view Lee Martin was unlucky to get booked especially as their guy dived moments before. In the second half DJ Campbell was clearly fouled in the area, and Kirkland clearly handled outside the area, but Probert just kept smiling and thinking he was too good for the game. Did not seem to empathise with how important this game was for both teams and fans, and should have got a hold earlier.
    More reasons to be upbeat than not me thinks!

    On route home from the match. Lowry is a liability but from South upper I'm not sure if he was sent off for the tackle or for the afters. He was thrown to the ground. Kirkland is a disgrace drawing the attention of the ref to an empty bottle on the pitch in order to time waste then getting unvolved in the ruck at the far end of the pitch. His time wasting tactics are as ugly as he is. Let too many chances go to waste tonight which has cost us 3 points. Overall though a reasonable performance and more encouragement under IH. COYL. Btw I'm not advocating the bottle being thrown but it was nowhers near him and he just did it to time waste when they were 0-1 up.

    What a game, end to end and full of incidents. Really enjoyable but that ref was bloody awfull. We had two clear penalty shouts waved away for no apparent reason and towards the end he was missing easy off-sides and fouls from both teams. He did manage to see a bottle when it was thrown on the pitch though and duly took it to the 4th official for reporting on. Well done to the s*** for brains f*** head that threw the bottle, hopefully the retarded c*** will grow a pair and hand himself in to ensure the club doesn't get fined.

      @glyngo: I agree Glyngo, f****** moron throwing a bottle but didn't mr probert make the most of it. Another ref who thinks we pay our hard earned money to watch him. Arrogant is not the word!. Lost control and then bottled out of sending Kirkland off and that's without the penalty shouts How he refs in the premier gawd knows but he can f**ck off back there.
      Back to the game, Lowry stamped on the bloke and their bloke reacted. Lowry has got to learn if he's to have a future at our club. Bywater doesn't fill me with confidence, Shittu is back to his best and looks like he's dropped 3 stone, Trotter didn't win any second balls, Bailey, I thought was awful but surpassed by Feeney (He is just not good enough; he seems to have fooled bolton so get rid quick!). Morison looked like he's getting back to the player of old, Keogh; run about a lot but I don't think he touched the ball once; Martin needs to learn composure in front of goal. New boys - DJ looked dangerous and IMO must start with Morison on Saturday and the new Xavi looked a decent centre back. As a team, first 20 mins we looked good then run out of steam and ideas. Crowd - apart from the p**** who through the bottle played their part. Overall, still a work in progress. COYL

    I think on reflection a fair result, We did not deserve to lose...but probably did not deserve to win. Feeling it for Morrisson seems like he just needs a goal or two and the floodgates may open, his all round play is good. We should take the positives from tonight, great entertainment, what a turn around from earlier in the season when we conceeded, this time the heads did not drop and the team fought hard for a draw. In truth I thought Wednesday had as many bad decisions as us, we were lucky their finishing is as bad as ours. DJ off the mark, and Williams looks like he had been a fixture for years, a big prospect. Bywater gives me the jitters each time he is called into action although he was let down for the goal. Fourth bottom still success in my books, massive turn around in a couple of weeks....work in progress

    You must score if given the chance when you are on top in a game. The Martin miss was crucial, at that time we were running then ragged. If he had scored then I think they would have fallen apart and we would have gone on to win. Two simple chances in two games, I think Martins finishing will be his undoing. Then the ref, I would like to say to him. Don't come down and referee a game in this division and treat it with contempt. We want you to show us why you are a premiership referee and why you are better than all the other nobs we get. Instead you strolled around like Billy big b*******, thinking you were bigger than the game. So instead of us coming away and saying " you can see why he is a premiership ref " . You are in fact just another nob !

    Still a lot of work to be done, the ref was so s*** he allowed play to continue for our goal, how long does a player have to be knocked out before the ref gives a s*** ? Yes it was fortunate for us and I'll gladly take it.
    how the f*** can you miss the keeper hand ball in front of you from 15 yrds outside of his area.
    feeney - s***.
    trotter - s***.
    bywater - s***.
    bailey - s***.
    woolford - average.
    Keogh - average.
    morison - only good for 4-4-2.
    malone - good.
    martin - good .
    shittu - motm.
    lowry - good.
    fredericks - good but, young.
    dj - good to get him off the mark - good.
    williams - good.
    fans - f****** immense.
    Personally I think we got away with it tonight as most of em cant pass for s***.
    Lucky point wall in a game we would have lost a couple months ago.
    take it all day long.
    reckon a minor improvement on saturday.
    progress, slowly but surely.

      @lukesmithmfc: fan who threw the bottle - c***.
      sorry , I thought morison did a good job, my reason for saying he suits 4-4-2 is that as most of our defenders and midfield cant pass for s*** the minute they have a player coming towards them instead of being composed they just hoof the ball up to him and you can see him getting the hump with the s*** service he recieves, they really try their best to put him off his game, so frustring to see it so f*** knows how he must feel.

    Satisfied with the point in the end. Yes refereeing was bad and yes we should have had a penalty but let's not forget they hit the bar and had many clear-cut chances (I'm still trying to figure out how Nuhiu missed that header). Morison was superb as was Shittu. DJ was lively but bar that the rest were average at best. FEENEY'S S***. That's all. PS PROBERT YOU'RE A T***.

    Very entertaining game and decent attendance. Thought we started well, team is playing with a new desire and the tempo was good, however at times we overdone things and lacked conviction when the chances presented themselves.. Thought Martin had a good game, run his socks off and deserved a goal for his work rate alone. Baileys distribution was poor and was lucky not cost us an earlier goal for his second cross field hospital pass... Second half we came out fighting and thought Morison showed flashes of his former self, forced a top save out of Kirkland and put an open goal on a plate for feeney to to miss (still don't rate him, too light weight and waste the ball more often than not). Thought IH made some good subs at the right time except for feeney, anyone know where MacDonald was??? Campbell looked good, quick little f***** and should have earned a penalty to add to his goal. Thought Williams looked a bit shaky, caught in possession and a few loose passes but sure he'll improve and hard game to come into... Trotter had another indifferent performance, at times looks so lazy and were too many sloppy passes by him tonight, frustrating to watch. Wednesday took their goal well but overall thought a draw was the very least we deserved and was a relief when Campbell tucked away one of our many chances. Good game, defence looked solid and shame Lowery had to be such a liability and get involved in handbags, him and Shittu were looking strong together!!! Pen joking watching the new millwall, roll on Reading, we'll need to be more clinical for that one!!!

      I made a point of watching Williams...thought your assessment a tadge harsh. I was struck by how composed he was coming in to that atmosphere, long time since we had a player who could play out of defence, thought we were unlucky with Tamika's injury....before that go back to Andy Roberts for those old enough. Big call for IH Beevers or Williams in for Lowry....let fortune favour the brave and chuck Williams in

        @tonytowneronthewing: Tony i agree with you about william,s i thought he made one dodgy touch but apart from that kept most thing,s simple and looked composed on the ball.

        @tonytowneronthewing: Fair play, I thought he got caught I possession a bit but that's to be expected as he has jumped a division and was a high tempo game. He looked a good athlete tho, got about and was handy he could play at the back after lowery getting sent off, so hopeful he'll be a good player for us. Thought I'd add Bywater had a good game?!

    Firstly in lowrys defence he tackled a player fairly got up ifunny if there were words said and the other player threw him to the ground. And yeah if he stayed down he would of stayed on the pitch but honestly if you were thrown to the ground would you stay there? Lowry didnt retaliate which was smart considering he's a fiery player and is just unlucky that these officials were abysmal. Lowry is one of our better players and is still young.

      @spartacus: Sorry to say mate, from where I was it looked to me that Lowry stamped on their bloke which kicked it all off.

    Two bottles thrown. 1 at Kirkland and one later on when all the players were tussling by the corner. How neither one hit I don't know, but I'm thankful. Just what we need when things were starting to look up. Cheers you clowns.

    Who said that bottle was empty? Must have hit a big puddle on the ground the way it splashed. Like i said feeney shocking first touch I thought keogh didnt look too bad tonight and bywater gave everyone a scare but made amends cant really blame him for goal he had no choice but to come out. Still onwards and upwards coyl!!!!

    It dont matter how well or poor we play if we keep getting refs like that. I say it after every game, that the ref was the worst ive seen but the FA manage to send us a bigger cheat the following week.

    Also over 2 games both goals were scored by the new players and the rest are like rabbits in headlights in front of goal and when they cross we score and when we shoot its like a cross. Holloway said when he arrived "were letting in too many goals and not scoring enough" the goals aren't going in as much but we don't look like scoring. We make enough chances but even when its 1 on 1 I'm not holding out much hope. The team looks milled better than last month but upfront the efforts there but not the goods

    As obviously stated our problems lie in we cant score. Everyone always says about wood and kane but i think we miss darius henderson badly, he was a presence and he knew where the goal was. Shame we let him go but due to wages you have to accept it. Ah well hopefully campbell can notch a few for rest the season.

    am i right in thinking that the ref and lino,s are in radio contact with each other,if so why when the ref gave a corner to sheff and with the lino standing with his flag raised for a earlier infringement given against sheff and with shittu pointing this out to him did it take him such a long time to consult his lino,and reverse his decision .
    I can only assume he is an absolute idiot,

    Danny Shittu once again man of the match, he wins everything that comes over. Still wondering why they went to Portugal, cause most did NOT seem any Fitter or Stronger. I still think we could have taken the lead and won the game very early on.

    As others have said on here, Feeney was a joke. Should never play again and be sold before the end of the window. I thought most played well, however Bailey not up to it, Trotter was a yard slow for most of the match, and Fredericks was getting roasted in the first half. Shittu was immense, but what I liked was the energy levels and closing down. So different from the old Lomas days. Bit more quality in front of goal and that would have been 3pts, AND, the ref was a f****** disgrace. Onwards and upwards. COYL

    I wasn't at the game and only know what I read on these boards but I get the feeling that we are up and about, sounds like everyone had a night out. Pity the boys couldn't get the 3pts but as someone else said, a few weeks back we would have got f***** up the a*** and lost by 3 or 4 goals. No wonder the ref lost his mind, u,r a scary mob. Proud, really proud!!! Millwall, pride of south London!

    I thought Millwall played well. you can see what a difference it makes when the attacking players close down defenders. We played on the floor a lot more and players looked confident passing. We made them make mistakes on quite a few occasions. However, I feel effort and determination is still not enough in a way. Millwall battle and run and close players down more now. we get a throw in. take the throw and what happens? poor touch or pass back and its wasted. Effort and determination can win scrappy games, but lack of skill results in no end product. Martin's attempt is also another good example. That should have been a simple goal. Bywater let in a poor goal. he should not have come out his box and his starting position was completely wrong. Also thank F**k we dont use goal line technology in this league, because i sit in dockers blk 17 and Im sure the ball crossed the line when bywater fumbled it! I think bailey should have stayed on and Trotter should have been subbed. Bailey broke up their play and was pinging some nice passes. running around a lot and getting lots of the ball..Trotter did the opposite. And what happens soon as Bailey is subbed...An opposition player makes a run through midfield and scores. Well done to DJ for scoring too! hopefully he can make a difference and a debut goal just what us and him needed.

    About the bottle being thrown...I was close to throwing my Dad at the ref, as well as the little kid sitting infront of me. Emotions get the better of people, With a ref like that and the way kirkland was acting, im surprised no one ran on and knocked them both out. F**K the both of them they robbed us of three points.

    Who are all these people talking about a plastic bottle damaging are reputation? who cares???? is this sort of thing new for you fans? who gives a F**k? you think of all the things to do with millwall, THAT will damage the rep? ha! No one likes, we dont care....if you dont like it...p*** off to palace.

    F**K EM ALLLLLL.........

    Well done Millwall. A month ago, we would have not have made so many chances, and we would have certainly lost this game. Heads would have gone down at 0-1 .Wednesday were on a winning run and are going to be a top half team for sure, ....we should have scored three against them. A point is a point....last year a point saved us!

    Well done our team, from what we were facing before Christmas to now is a massive improvement. I feel sad that there are some on here who still want to throw brickbats are some of our team. Not long ago it was Danny who was being called all sort of unpleasant names the fire now is being redirected to Liam Trotter. There always has to be someone for the moaners to have a go at. Give the guys a break and let IH do his work, it will take time and I am sure they all will come good. WE must get behind IH and his plans for the future. We cannot expect miracles to happen overnight it will take months if not a year to get to where he wants to be, that is at the top of the table.
