Burnley Away Review, Five at the back for Millwall again #12

Season 2, Ep. 12
Millwall were handed a third straight league defeat by Burnley as they were beaten 2-0 at Turf Moor.


Second half goals from Vitnho and Jay Rodriguez secured the hosts’ their first home win of the season after three draws on their own patch.

The defeat extended Millwall’s winless run to ten away from home.

Zian Flemming and Andreas Voglsammer were both handed full debuts as part of three changes made to the side that lost 1-0 at home to Reading last Saturday. Charlie Cresswell was the third change.


Vincent Kompany’s side came close early on, former Charlton man Joann Berg Gudmundsson firing a shot into the side netting. Bart Bialkowski was forced into a save from Nathan Tella’s shot on 12 minutes.


We nearly got to see a stunning debut goal from Flemming but Arijanet Muric used bis full frame to keep out the Dutchman’s effort. Bialkowski then had to prevent Josh Brownhill’s free kick from flying into the net.


Into the second half and Flemming was set through by Tom Bradshaw but Muric denied him.

Cresswell hit the post after Jake Cooper’s header back into the box fell to his defensive partner but the post denied him a third goal of the season.


Burnley took the lead just after the hour mark. Benson’s cross was headed in at the back post by Vitnho. They doubled their lead in the 72nd minute. Brownhill’s shot was parried by Bialkowski straight into the path of Rodriguez who reacted quickest to make it 2-0.

Benik Afobe missed a great chance to halve the deficit but, he failed to get on the end of Cooper’s knockdown.


It means the Lions have now lost their last three game without scoring.
