Barnsley’s stay in the Championship came closer to an end as Milwall produced one of the high-scoring football results of the weekend in the Championship. Danny McNamara opened the scoring in the 31st minute before he doubled their advantage with his second in the 47th minute. Olivier Burke made it three in the 58th minute before Benik Afobe made it four in the 72nd minute. Romal Palmer scored a consolation goal for the visitors in the 49th minute.
Millwall’s Gary Rowett: “We’re going to have to put a run together, quite simply. There’s no other way of looking at it. We’re probably going to have to win two more games than a lot of other sides. I think we’ve been in this position probably every season. It’s not easy to take the next step but I think what’s important is the players give everything they’ve got to try.”
Barnsley’s Poya Asbaghi: “We let the fans down, and they were the best Barnsley players today by far. We have to make sure that they cannot see that in the next game we play against Swansea. We will put on a bigger fight. It is going to be even tougher. It is going to be against the most comfortable team on the ball in the league. We have to make sure that next time they travel to watch us they will see players that will go in with their heads first in every duel, unlike today.”
