@AlexGrace12 & @KaiBennett32 Interactive Post Millwall Vs Cardiff Match, That Live Millwall Fan Show #2
Second-half goals from Charlie Cresswell and Benik Afobe sealed a much needed three points for Gary Rowett’s men.
Zian Flemming on his home debut came close within five minutes. His long-range effort finding the gloves of Ryan Allsop. four minutes later the visitors responded, Jaden Philogene firing over from just outside the box. He came close again four minutes later, but he once again failed to hit the target.
Callum Styles had a fabulous debut in Millwall colours and set Andreas Voglsammer away, he found Flemming, who curled an effort wide.
Voglsammer went close in the 28th minute; with his back to goal, he went for it, but it was simple enough for Allsop to deal with.
Four minutes before the break, former Millwall loanee Sheyi Ojo almost gave Cardiff the lead. A ball across goal reached Ojo, and his effort came back off the post.
The Lions were forced into a change just two minutes into the second period. Shaun Hutchinson was replaced by Cresswell.
Substitute Mark Harris rattled the post for Cardiff, his effort on the turn coming back of Bart Bialkowksi’s left-hand post. Cardiff would go on to rue that missed opportunity as in the 64th minute, they found themselves behind as two Millwall substitutes combined for the opening goal of the contest. Cresswell headed in Scott Malone’s corner to give the Lions the lead.
Tyler Burey came close to a second, forcing Allsop into a good save with 20 minutes to go. Cardiff did force Bialkowski into a save, Niels Nkounkou’s effort was palmed away by the Pole for a corner which was cleared.
Afobe sealed the deal with his first goal of the season with a delightful finish past Allsop.
