|Easter 30||Venue: The Den
MILLWALL battled to a 1-0 victory over Real Mallorca in their final pre-season friendly of the summer courtesy of Jermaine Easter's first-half goal.
The Lions were given a competitive workout by the Spanish outfit as Ian Holloway's side completed their preparations for the 2014-15 campaign.
Manager Holloway fielded 24 of his players over the course of 90 minutes, with injuries to Nicky Bailey and Richard Chaplow the only black marks on an otherwise positive evening.
The first chance of the game fell Millwall's way in the fourth minute when Bailey sent a diving header narrowly wide of the near post from Lee Martin's corner.
Scott McDonald curled over the bar from a central position before summer signing Ricardo Fuller glanced a header straight into the keeper's arms.
Fuller went even closer to breaking the deadlock when he latched onto Jimmy Abdou's chipped pass and rifled wide from a tight angle in the 26th minute.
But the Lions opened the scoring on the half-hour mark when Easter's low shot deflected in, with Byron Webster possibly getting the decisive touch.
Martin then dispossessed Joao Victor on the edge of the Mallorca area but his rifled shot sailed over.
The first half ended on a sour note as Bailey was clattered by Abdon Prats and had to be substituted with a leg injury.
The midfielder hobbled down the tunnel with physio Bobby Bacic but it was unclear how serious the problem was.
Holloway made 11 substitutions at the break to ensure every member of his squad got some match action, but the changes led to a disjointed second half.
However, Aiden O'Brien shone in an advanced midfield role and it was his lofted pass that dropped to Martyn Woolford on the edge of the area, only for the winger's volley to be blocked.
That was arguably Millwall's best opening in the second period, although Lee Gregory sliced wide following Shaun William's raking diagonal pass into the striker's feet.
The visitors came close to levelling in the 90th minute when Thomas Brandon got goal-side of the Lions' back four, but he guided a first-time shot over the bar.
Millwall first half: Forde; Edwards, Webster, Dunne, Malone; Bailey (Powell), Abdou; Martin, McDonald, Easter; Fuller.
Millwall second half: Bywater; Siafa, Shittu, Beevers, Williams, Chaplow (Goodman), Wright, Gueye, O'Brien, Woolford, Gregory.
