Joel Piroe scored the only goal of the game to help Swansea produce one of the narrow football results of the midweek action in the Championship. The first half was a rather dull affair with neither side able to find the breakthrough. The stalemate did not last long with Piroe finding the breakthrough in the 46th minute. It was a bitter blow for Milwall’s playoff hopes.
Swansea’s Russell Martin: “If you wanted it to fall to anyone, it is him, he is so clinical with both feet, and he is a great technician. But the most important thing he has is the right mentality when he gets around the goal. He shows composure, he is calm, and he just focuses on his technique, something that all top strikers possess. That win was equally brilliant as the win on Saturday but in a different way. After the emotional energy expended on Saturday, to back it up with a performance like that against a team that is in such good form is not easy.”
Millwall’s Gary Rowett: “I can’t be disappointed with the players, I can’t be frustrated with the players, I’m frustrated with the result. I think we have given everything we have got to get where we are, and we will continue to do it. We have got six games left, and we have got to try and win as many games as possible and just see what happens. I think it would be a lot more frustrating if we were sat in a mid-table with nothing left to play for at this stage. I think we knew the top six was a massive challenge anyway. When you’re four points off it with a poor goal difference, you realize you need to win two more games than a lot of the teams.”
