Report: Millwall 1-1 Southampton

DARIUS Henderson bagged his seventh goal in three games to secure Millwall a replay against Southampton in the fourth round of the FA Cup.

Rickie Lambert's first-half header looked to have given the Saints a narrow win, but Henderson struck at the death to maintain his incredible scoring record as the Lions claimed a deserved draw.

Defeat would have been harsh on Kenny Jackett's side after they dominated proceedings for long spells, although they struggled to convert their possession into chances.

Indeed, Lambert's near-post header from Dan Harding's cross in the 31st minute came against the run of play – both Liam Feeney had and Henderson had gone close for Millwall in the early stages.

But Henderson was not to be denied his 16th goal of the season as he hooked a loose ball over an on-rushing Southampton defender, before slotting home from close range in the 86th minute.

Millwall: Forde; Smith, Ward, Craig, Barron; Henry (Hackett 67), Abdou, Trotter (c), Feeney; Kane (N'Guessan 68), Henderson.

Southampton: Bialkowski; Richardson, Martin, Fox, Harding; Puncheon (Shaw 78), Hammond (c), Reeves, De Ridder (Holmes 61); Barnard (Lee 63), Lambert.
