  • Charlton 0 Millwall 1. All over and the Lions make it back-to-back wins on derby day. Not a classic, but Steve Lomas won't care. Back to the drawing board for the Addicks.

  • Corner taken short, where Morison fires the ball off Jackson and out for a throw. Ball exactly where Millwall want it. They then give Charlton one last chance by conceding a throw. Long ball comes straight back at the Addicks. They try again, but Stewart is denied by a smart stop from Forde. Should be it.

  • Morison closing well up top, forcing Hamer into another poor clearance. His kicking has been terrible at times. Morison then gathers and heads for the corner flag. He wins a corner. Just what the Lions needed.

  • Wilson drills high and long. Robinson up highest again for Millwall. The ball bobbles around the edge of their box. Wilson delivers again and Morrison is adjudged to have nudged Beevers in the back.

  • Harriott touches down the left, with Morrison now pushed forward to add height up top. Millwall do enough to see the ball out. Powell stood hands on hips, Lomas demanding one final push.

  • Four minutes of stoppage-time to be played.

  • Final 60 seconds of normal time and Millwall are looking to run down the clock. Robinson happy to hack clear, but Harriott keeps the ball in play. His cross is too high for Stewart.

  • Jackson can't get a shot away on the edge of the box. Bailey ends up getting in a tangle on the deck. Play brought to a halt. Drop ball the decision. Don't see many of those anymore. Millwall end up clearing.

  • Hamer into the feet of Wilson, who then fires long. It works on this occasion as Harriott finds space on the left. He fizzes over a drilled cross which Forde does really well to hold on to falling backwards.

  • Abdou into Morison, but a pass sent wide to Woolford bobbles out of play. Millwall happy to retreat and bolt the back door again. They also leave it open as Sordell tries to meet a Church cross at the near post, but fails to get a toe to the delivery.

  • Dervite down holding his face and may require treatment. He clashed heads with Morison. He gets back to his feet, aware of the need to get on with the game.

  • Harriott lets the ball bounce off his boot again. Millwall surge through midfield with Woolford. He tries to trick his way into the box, but fails. Chaplow is then slipped into the area and he tees up Malone, who slides the ball into the side-netting from 12 yards out.

  • Powell watching on from the sidelines and he can't be happy with what he has seen. Too many aimless lumps forward and no Plan B. He has to take some of the blame for that. Home support have every reason to be disappointed with this.

  • Forde out of his box again, and firing wide to the left. Martin can't quite catch up with the ball before it rolls out of play. Charlton again on the ball in midfield, but have no options and lack ideas.

  • Hamer goes short with a free-kick. No way out for Charlton though. Hamer then gets lucky as a pass back to him rolls under his boot. The Addicks do go long eventually, but Forde gathers. Same old story for the hosts.

  • Sordell able to keep the ball in play on the right, but can't pick out Harriott. Plenty of running from those two, but not a lot of end product.

  • Martin sends the corner to the near post, where there are no blue shirts. Harriott's pace allows him to lead a counter. He gets his head up, but sends an under-hit pass towards Sordell.

  • Final change of the match is made by Millwall. Trotter makes way for Chaplow.

  • Groans as the throw takes an age to come in, and then Sordell cushions the ball to Trotter. Poor from Charlton. Woolford tries to make them pay. He beats two tackles, but not Morrison. Loose ball runs to Martin, who wins another corner. Jackson booked for a late dive on Woolford during the earlier passage of play.

  • Church gathers on halfway this time, and finds Stewart. He has to go backwards. Charlton then go left and across. Stephens thinks about a shot, but goes wide to Wilson and Harriott. A final cross is cut out.
