Leeds United earn a valuable three points, beating Millwall 1-0 at The Den.

Leed United came back strong from last week's 7-3 loss to Nottingham Forest to beat Millwall 1-0 at The Den this afternoon.

The game started at a frantic pace, with challenges flying in thick and fast from both sides.

It was the home side who had the first decent chance when Harry Kane crossed from the left and Darius Henderson headed over Andy Lonergan's bar.

Soon after, Snodgrass sent in a cross and Luciano Becchio headed it over the top.

Leeds began to get a grip on the game and looked to have more quality going forward than the home side.

Both sides went in at half time with the score still at 0-0.

Leeds started the second half as the better side and Millwall's Maik Taylor had to make the first save of the half, getting down well to keep out Ross McCormack's effort.

Tempers started to fray as the match wore on and, on the hour, James Henry entered the referee's notebook for an apparent dive, despite his teammates' screams for a penalty. Moments later, Becchio and Millwall's Robinson clashed and were also spoken to by Lee Probert.

Leeds got themselves front on 65 minutes, courtesy of McCormack. Snodgrass squeezed the ball back into the six-yard box from the left for McCormack to score.

Two minutes later, Millwall had the ball in the back of the net, but referee Probert had already blown for a penalty for a foul on Andy Keogh.

Henderson stepped up, but Lonergan got down well to his left and made the save to keep the away side in front.

Moments later, the woodwork came to Leed's rescue when Henderson headed against the bar.

Leeds closed the game out well and picked up a valuable away victory to move back within touching distance of the play-offs.
