Milwall was responsible for the most surprising football scores of the weekend as Jake Cooper scored a last-minute winner. Callum Connolly pulled back Benik Afobe after he was through on goal with just 14 minutes on the clock. He was sent off immediately leaving Blackpool with all the work. They did break the deadlock against the run of play with some dreadful defending at the back allowing Shayne Lavery a tap in.
With all the dominance of Milwall, it took a stroke of genius from Jed Wallace who scored a free-kick from 25 yards out. Captain Jake Cooper scored the winner in the 90th minute to ensure Milwall earned their first three points of the Championship season.
Millwall’s Gary Rowett: “I did say to the players after, ‘can I please not have any more games like that’ because I was going to have a heart attack at one point. We don’t make it easy. There’s a little bit of nervousness around the place. It felt like today was almost like a must-win game.”
Blackpool’s Neil Critchley: “It was cruel, a cruel way to end the game for us. It’s very hard, to sum up how I’m feeling because on one hand I’m really proud of the performance that we gave, but on the other hand I feel completely devastated for the game to end in that way.” he added. “To come here and play with 10 men for 75 minutes and play as well as we did, I felt we deserved something from the game – to be honest with you. It’s hard to take. We’ve had a tough start of games but if we keep performing like we’ve done today, then we will win games.”
