Millwall are still searching for their first win in six games following a 1-0 defeat to Fulham.

Oliver Norwood scored from a spot-kick in the only goal of the game at Craven Cottage, as the Lions have still yet to win away from this season.

Tom Elliott and George Saville both came close to scoring, but heroics from goalkeeper David Button and the post denied them.

Here are five things we learned ...

Was it a penalty, was it not a penalty?

Conor McLaughlin brilliantly denied winger Neeskens Kebano with a recovery challenge after the ball went through on goal for Fulham.

But shortly before half-time, referee Peter Tierney pointed to the spot after adjudging the full back to have fouled striker Rui Fonte inside the box.

The contact was fairly minimal, but many will have seen them given before. Neil Harris said post-match that Fonte made the most of what he had in terms of contact, which may be a fair assessment after looking at it.

Tom Elliott was a handful

Placing Lee Gregory on the bench was an interesting decision by Harris.

It meant that defenders Tomas Kalas and Dennis Odoi would not be dealing with a big man, little man dynamic, but two physically powerful forwards instead.

Elliott's outing gave confidence in his ability to contribute this season. Odoi looked uncomfortable when dealing with him, and he made the most of his half-chances. He was unfortunate have not gotten more.

Ryan Tunnicliffe was excellent

The ex-Manchester United midfielder hardly put in a foot wrong all afternoon and made George Saville's role a little easier with his awareness and accurate passing.

There was a moment where he delivered a pinpoint ball into the path of Fred Onyedinma from midfield that summed up a cool and collated showing by him.

If he can continue with similar performances, then Shaun Williams' absence will be mitigated at least.

Millwall gave Fulham very little

Harris was generally correct in his post-match presser. Fulham struggled to create clear-cut opportunities against his side on a chilly afternoon in south west London, as his defence matched Fulham's threatening front three.

Granted, Sheyi Ojo, Neeskens Kebano and others had their opportunities, but there were plenty of blocks, interceptions and last-ditch defensive efforts which prevented them from having much joy.

Shaun Hutchinson was once again outstanding, and Jake Cooper partnered him well. Had it not been for the penalty, perhaps the Lions would have come away with something.

But unfortunately, similar issues continue to arise each week

The lack of execution inside the final third, or 18-yard box, is what is separating Millwall from a higher position in the league.

This is no secret though, as the attack resolves to find various ways to put the ball in the back of the net.

Once the scoring touch is consistently found, Harris' men should be climbing into mid-table. But until then, it's difficult not to bring the same problems up each week.
