Gary Rowett was impressed with his side’s second half display against Sheffield Wednesday.

The Lions had not won at home since October last year but managed to come from behind against the relegation threatened Owls.

The home side went behind after a slow start, something that didn’t please the boss.

Rowett said, ‘For the first 30 minutes I was very disappointed with the performance. It was a tight game, nothing in it. Sheffield Wednesday were as attractional as us.

‘But they got the one break and one moment that we didn’t defend well and we go 1-0 down.

‘With our home for this season being as poor as it is, you can’t help but feel a bit deflated with the start.

‘We kicked on a little bit and started to impose ourselves on the game before the penalty. The penalty, for me, changed our psychology and from then on in, we were completely dominant.’

It was definitely a dominant second half display from the Lions. Two goals in two minutes gave them a deserved lead, following a string of saves from Keiren Westwood in the away goal.

Rowett continued, ‘We’ve had about 25 shots to their 4. They didn’t really cause us any threat apart from the odd Bannan delivery.

‘From there on in, it was a matter of can we take our chances. We had to make a couple of changes through injury.

‘Maikel Kieftenbeld came off with his hamstring tight and Lenny [Ryan Leonard] had to come off because of his ankle.

‘Westwood makes three brilliant saves early in in the second half and you wonder what we’re going to do to score that second goal.

It would have been a familiar frustration if Millwall had been unable to break the deadlock, given the volume of chances they created.

Scott Malone’s Gazza-esque moment gave the home side the lead and from then the result was never in doubt.

Rowett expressed his pleasure with a quality goal, ‘A moment of brilliance gets its. Scotty Malone has been fabulous for us, a great individual goal. Then it was how many can we score?

Ben Thompson’s goal will raise questions over whether he was aiming to score, his manager was none the wise, ‘I’m sure he’ll say he meant it, I’m not sure whether he did or he didn’t. But it’s a brilliant strike and then they just opened up.

‘We kept our foot on the gas which is something we haven’t done often enough this season, so I’m really pleased with the performance.’
