MARTYN Woolford hit the winner as Millwall maintained their 100 percent start to the new season with a 1-0 victory over recently-relegated Fulham.
Woolford volleyed home Ricardo Fuller's cross after just 11 minutes to put the Lions ahead – and they defended manfully after going in front to seal the three points.
Scott Malone and Magaye Gueye spurned chances to increase the lead but Ian Holloway's side were hanging on at times and were grateful to David Forde for a string of saves.
Millwall were unchanged from their opening-day win over Leeds United, though midfielder Nicky Bailey was able to return to the bench after a calf strain.
Fulham manager Felix Magath made four alterations to his XI on the back of a 2-1 defeat at Ipswich as the former Premier League side went in search of their first win after relegation.
The Lions had some early defending to do as former Arsenal midfielder Thomas Eisfeld tested David Forde with a low fourth-minute drive.
Forde could only parry Eisfeld's effort as far as George Williams but the 18-year-old skewed the rebound high and wide from 18 yards.
But Millwall broke the deadlock on their first meaningful attack when Fuller whipped in a teasing cross from the left flank and Woolford converted from close range.
Jimmy Abdou then lofted an awkward effort over the bar after good work from Woolford, Fuller and McDonald as the Lions grew in confidence.
After Alan Dunne's superb recovery tackle denied Hugo Rodallega a clear run on goal, Lee Martin was foiled at the other end by a very tight offside decision on the half-hour mark.
Malone went close to scoring a stunning second goal when he hit a dipping half-volley from the edge of the area that Joronen did well to palm over the bar.
At the other end, Forde scrambled Cameron Burgess' header behind for a corner before a frustrated Scott Parker drilled a long-range effort into the stands.
Fulham responded at half time by introducing £11million signing Ross McCormack from the bench and he teed up Rodallega for the first effort of the second period.
But when Millwall sliced open the home defence in the 56th minute, they should have doubled their lead.
Scott McDonald found Malone with an inch-perfect pass and the left back tried to squeeze a low shot inside the near post, only to be thwarted by Joronen's outstretched leg.
Forde then made another superb save to preserve the Lions' advantage, smothering McCormack's drive from a tight angle.
And Rodallega must have thought he'd equalised when his low shot beat Forde – but Dunne made a vital goal-line clearance.
Exciting Fulham substitute Patrick Roberts became the latest player to be denied by Forde in the 75th minute after darting through Millwall's midfield and letting fly from 20 yards.
But for all the Cottagers' pressure, the Lions had a golden chance to seal the win when sub Magaye Gueye burst through on goal, but he fired tamely at Joronen.
One goal proved enough, however, as Holloway's side continued their perfect start to the campaign, having already beaten Leeds and seen off Wycombe in midweek.
