Smith makes first Millwall start since return from Swindon as defender nets in draw

HARRY Smith made his first appearance for Millwall since returning from a loan spell at Swindon Town as the Lions under-23s drew with Cardiff on Monday.

Smith started up front with young Australian forward Kristian Brymora, with Kevin Nugent also naming senior players David Martin, Mahlon Romeo and Ben Thompson in his starting XI at Dartford’s Princes Park.

Romeo gave Millwall the lead in the 54th minute, but Republic of Ireland international Anthony Pilkington equalised five minutes later as both sides secured a Professional Development League point.

Millwall: 4-4-2: Martin; Romeo, Rooney, Mbulu, Chesmain; White, Thompson, Donovan, Twardek; Brymora (Saunders-Henry 76), Smith. Subs: Wicks, Sandford, McNamara, Debrah.
