Fan's Roar: Last minute heartbreak continues Millwall's tough start
By Ayse Smith of Millwall Supporters Club
The Lions went to Nottingham Forest's City ground looking for a win, not particularly to progress into the next round of the Capital One cup, but to boost their confidence.
With four league games without a win, and only gaining a point at Hillsborough, Millwall have been bobbing around the bottom of the league table.
Manager Steve Lomas has done well bringing in players over the summer, but none of them have produced the goods leaving the fans frustrated.
The Lions were by far the better side at Forest, but couldn't seem to make anything of their time in possession.
Millwall cancelled out Forest's 59th minute strike in the 86th minute when Liam Feeney fired in a low shot.
Just as things looked like they were going to be a stalemate and extra time, Forest's Jamie Paterson sent a corner into the area, Greg Halford nodded it on to Jamaal Lascelles who put it in the back of the Lions net.
The Lions headed to Brighton four days later now without the Capital One Cup to worry about. We were lucky to get a Saturday kick-off after two seasons of evening ties.
Brighton is always a lively affair for Millwall fans but was forgettable until six minutes of the second half had gone. Martyn Woodford astonishingly found the back of the net for the Lions.
The referee then started to irritating Millwall fans, allowing the Brighton players to roll around the pitch as if they'd been shot. From then on, we sensed the Brighton goal coming.
The first came, but was disallowed with a push from Leonardo Ulloa.
Then as if to even things up for Brighton in the 76th minute, the referee gave Millwall's Alan Dunne a second yellow card for a tackle in which he clearly got the ball.
This sent Dunne off for an early bath and left the Lions down to 10 men.
The momentum of the game was swinging in Brighton's direction and it was only a matter of time before they scored.
They saved the heartbreak to the last minute when Ulloa found the goal.
A point away from home isn't such a disaster, but we've only scraped two points in five games which doesn't look very promising either.
