Aleksandar Mitrovic scored a brace to help Fulham produce one of the comfortable football results of the midweek action in the Championship. Mitrovic opened the scoring in the 29th minute before doubling their lead in the 50th minute. Bobby Reid sealed the three points in the 87th minute as Fulham opened an eight-point lead at the top of the table.
Fulham’s Marco Silva: “We must improve and be more consistent for the whole game, it’s something we’re working on. But we were the best team on the pitch. Keeping a clean sheet was really important for us, it was nice to have that feeling again. After the second goal, we dropped a little bit of our intensity. We started the match slowly, and we did not have the quality at the beginning to play. We started to control the game, we know we had to deal with direct balls and second balls.”
Millwall’s Gary Rowett: “We performed really well for large parts of the game, we made the best side in the division with the best-attacking quality a little bit uncomfortable. If you take their third goal out, because it was two yards offside, it was clear. Those are the moments. At 2-0, we have some absolute glaring chances. If we take them, then we get a chance at least of getting something out of the game. There were large bits of it that were really promising. We haven’t had the points we’ve warranted. But it’s the Championship.”
