Millwall captain Tony Craig says he will sit down and watch tonight’s FA Cup draw as ‘it’s either that or Emmerdale’.

The Lions had to come from behind to book their place in the fourth round, but three goals just in 15 second-half minutes and a red card from Joe Williams, swung the tie Millwall’s way.

Craig was named in the starting 11 for the first time since November and said he had to recover from a slow start, but felt comfortable as he settled in.

He told News Shopper: “It took me a little while to get into it. It has been a while since I have played left-back in a competitive game, but I was pleased with my performance. 

“It is difficult, just to get your mind back, your match sharpness. Not only myself, there were a few others that came in today and all certainly put their name about.

“They caught us with a sucker-punch. I think we started off quite well, they scored and like you said, it took us ten minutes to regroup, but I think once we got our foothold in the game there was only one side in it. 

“We had a lot of chances today. Young Fred up there, was a handful.”

Barnsley had taken an early lead through Ben Potts, but Aiden O’Brien scored twice, either side of Ben Thompson’s first Millwall goal since April 2016.

Fred Onyedinma added a fourth for The Lions and Craig was said it was a satisfying day for the club, as all four goals were scored by players from Millwall’s academy.

Craig added: “I thought Ben [Thompson] and Fred [Onyedinma] done extremely well today. Two youth products that have come through the youth system and they go from strength to strength. 

“The pleasing thing today is, if you look at the goal scorers, is it three or four of them have come through the youth system, so it’s a proud day.”

Millwall have now reached the fourth round four times in the last seven seasons, and Craig is hoping for a home tie in tomorrow evenings draw.

“The FA Cup is very important to get through to the next round, especially here with a home game and keeps our home run going”, Craig said.

“We knew they had beaten us five times in a row. They are sort of a bogey side over the years and we are thankful that we have finally got a win under our belts against them.

“I thought we will just take anyone at home. I think we look at it last season and we had some big clubs come here and if we get a home draw we will certainly be happy. Whoever it may be, for any club to come here we know how difficult we can make it for them.”

When asked will he watch the draw, the 32-year-old defender said: “Yeah I will. Obviously on a Monday night at 7 o’clock there isn’t much else on the telly at that time. 

“So, it’s either that or Emmerdale. My missus will be watching that [and] I will be certainly be looking forward to watching the draw.”
