Millwall are still looking for their first Championship win of the season after letting a one-goal lead slip against Bolton Wanderers at The Den.

George Saville’s first goal for Millwall gave his side the lead, but Felipe Morais ensured the points were shared with a stunning free-kick from outside the box.

The hosts side started the brighter, but lacked quality at crucial moments and were unable to test Mark Howard during a frustrating first period. Jed Wallace had the best chance of the half, but after cutting inside, was denied by a last-ditch Josh Cullen tackle.

The Lions started the second-half on the front foot and were rewarded on 49 minutes. Lee Gregory and Steve Morison combined well to fashion an opening for George Saville, who burst into the box and sent Howard the wrong way to give Millwall a deserved lead.

Neil Harris’ side twice went close to doubling their lead just minutes after. Firstly, Saville headed over from a corner and then Morison deflected Saville’s long-range effort towards goal only to see his looping effort cleared off the line by former Lion Mark Beevers.

Millwall were made to pay for their missed chances, just after the hour mark. Bolton substitute Morais curled a delightful free-kick into the top corner to bring the visitors level.

The goal did not seem to stop Millwall in their tracks and were close to retaking the lead just seven minutes later. Gregory found space in the box, but was denied by a sharp save from Howard.

Millwall continued to pile on the pressure, but could not find that all-important winner and had to settle for a share of the spoils.
