It’s been a remarkable 2017 for Millwall.

They won promotion to the Championship in May to end their two-year exile.

And Neil Harris’ men will finish the year nine points clear of the drop zone - not bad for a team that was tipped to go down by bookmakers.

News Shopper has picked five of Millwall’s most memorable matches from the calendar year…

Millwall 1 Leicester 0 (February 18)

By far, Millwall’s most impressive win in 2017. A full-house at the Den were sent into raptures when Shaun Cummings poked home in stoppage-time to secure a memorable win over the Premier League champions and send the Lions into the quarter-finals of the FA Cup.

That upset looked unlikely when Jake Cooper was sent off seven minutes into the second-half, but his dismissal seemed to spur Millwall on and Cummings grabbed the winner with seconds left.

Bristol Rovers 3 Millwall 4 (April 30)

Millwall secured their place in the play-offs on the final day of the season, but it was far from plain sailing. The Lions nearly dropped out of the top six as they surrendered a three-goal lead at the Memorial Stadium.

Lee Gregory struck twice on either side of Tony Craig’s strike to put Millwall three-up, but Rovers hit back through Jermaine Easter and Chris Lines to make it 3-2 before the break. Billy Bodin completed the comeback 18 minutes from time, and with Southend winning, Neil Harris’ side had to find a goal, or they would finish seventh. That goal came when Shaun Hutchinson climbed highest to head home with five minutes remaining.

Bradford City 0 Millwall 1 (May 20)

Of the 87 goals Steve Morison has scored for Millwall, his winner at Wembley was by far the most important. Shaun Williams’ cross was flicked on at the near-post by Gregory before Morison reacted first to volley home.

The Lions had to be thankful for Jordan Archer who made a fine first-half save to deny Billy Clarke when one-on-one to keep the score goalless. Some Millwall fans invaded the pitch at full-time, which somewhat marred the celebrations, but nevertheless, it was job-done by Harris.

Millwall 1 Leeds 0 (September 16)

Leeds came to the Den unbeaten and top of the Championship. They hadn’t conceded in six games, but they certainly didn’t play like table-toppers.

Harris’ side produced a typical Millwall performance and totally dominated from minute one. Despite their impressive display, it was a frustrating afternoon for the home fans as they missed a host of chances, until Aiden O’Brien’s winner.

Millwall 1 QPR 0 (December 29)

This wasn’t just any ordinary London derby, it was Ian Holloway’s first return to the Den since he was sacked as Millwall manager in March 2015 and one that attracted the Lions’ biggest crowd of the season.

The Holloway abuse started before he even stepped off the QPR team bus and continued for the majority of the 90 minutes.

In truth, it was a scrappy affair, with only one real moment of quality. That was curtesy of Wallace, who crossed for Morison, who picked the perfect moment to head home his first goal of the season.
