Millwall achieved back-to-back victories for the first time since October when they narrowly beat Nottingham Forest 1-0 on Saturday afternoon.

A spectacular overhead kick from Ryan Tunnicliffe was enough for the home side to attain all three points which means that the visitors are now winless in five.

The Lions came close to doubling their lead through Steve Morison who whacked the post from six-yards out.

Here is how the News Shopper rated Millwall’s players...

Jordan Archer – 7 - When called upon, he did his job. Made a very good reactive save from Joe Lolley’s 25-yard strike in the first half.

James Meredith – 6 - Linked up well with Ferguson down the left hand side but his end product let him down. Defensively solid.

Jake Cooper – 7 - Was a constant threat from corners. He headed a couple back across goal but no Millwall player was able to meet them. Defensively, the centre half looks to be back to his usual self as not much got past him.

Shaun Hutchinson – 6 – A quite game for the defender, but usually if a defender does not have much to do it a testament to probably how well he played.

Mahlon Romeo – 6 – Jed Wallace’s free roaming role for the Lions, means that Romeo’s attacking prowess is limited. However, this means the fullback has concentrated on improving defensively, which was proved against Forrest as he tamed Matty Cash.

Shane Ferguson – 7 –The Ireland international was oozing in confidence. It was no surprise that all of Millwall’s attacks came down the left hand side in the first half.

Ryan Tunnicliffe – 8 - His outstanding overhead kick opened the scoring for the hosts and then he got stuck in defensively after making a few vital tackles in an around Millwall’s 18-yard box.

Ryan Leonard – 6 - Passed the ball well at times but the central midfielder failed to do anything worth reporting on during the game.

Jed Wallace – 7 – Another energetic performance from the winger. If he was not causing problems in the final third, he was working endlessly to track back and support Romeo.

Tom Elliot – 6 - Won nearly every aerial duel in the opening exchanges and held up the ball well. His performance deserved a goal but the striker failed to be in any position that would give himself half a chance to do so.

Lee Gregory – 6 – Run his socks off once again. Taken off as a precaution in the 58th minute after what looked like a stomach irritation.


Aiden O’Brien – 6 - Added another dimension to Millwall’s play when he came on but the Ireland International but his lack of support up top meant he was unable to do much.

Steve Morison – 6 – His experience was much needed. He moved the ball well and sprayed a Pirloesque ball out to O’Brien at one point. He will be kicking himself after missing a glaring opportunity from 6-yards out.
