BREAKING: Millwall's Championship survival confirmed after West Brom comeback sends Rotherham down

MILLWALL can celebrate Championship safety after West Bromwich Albion came back to defeat Rotherham United on Saturday. 

The Lions drew 0-0 with Stoke City in the early kick-off at The Den, meaning the Millers had to at least draw at the Hawthorns.

Even that effectively wouldn't have been enough for Paul Warne's side given the goal difference between the last two clubs trying to avoid relegation to League One.



Clark Robertson put Rotherham ahead early in the second half against the Baggies, moving them to within a point of Millwall at that stage.

But West Brom hit back with 13 minutes left with two goals in three minutes through Jay Rodriguez and Rekeem Harper.

Rotherham couldn't respond, and they are four points behind Millwall with one game left. The Millers join Ipswich and Bolton in League One in 2019-20.



The Lions, meanwhile, can enjoy two final pressure-free games this season, at home against Bristol City on Tuesday and at Wigan Athletic next Sunday.
