Milwall kept their slim hopes of making the playoffs alive as they produced one of the comfortable football scores of the weekend in the Championship. Benik Afobe opened the scoring in the 53rd minute before a Josh Knight own goal doubled their advantage in the 73rd minute. George Saville headed home for their third after a frustrating first half where they dominated but could not find the back of the net. Peterborough dropped to 23rd on the league table.
Millwall’s Gary Rowett: “Other than adding a few more goals to it, I think the second-half performance was really good at times – it was quite scintillating, with lots of chances. And, to be honest with you, we should have probably scored more goals. We had some good opportunities and we missed some chances. There were some great balls across the box that were flashing through and needed someone to get on the end of it…we’re at the stage of the season where a couple more goals might have made it even more interesting and we probably should have had them.”
Peterborough’s Grant McCann: “I’m not one to ever blame officials for a result and we’ve lost the game today because of us. But I will say the decision to give them a throw-in, which is a massive strength for them, has cost us the first goal. It’s swung the momentum for Millwall because up to that point we were comfortably the better team.”
