Result: Leeds United see off Millwall thanks to Alex Mowatt's free kick

Alex Mowatt's free kick gives Leeds United victory at home to Millwall at Elland Road.

Leeds United have held on to beat struggling Millwall this afternoon, thanks to an Alex Mowatt free kick.

The home side almost took the lead early on when Sam Byram's volley flew inches past the post, as Leeds made a fast start in the opening stages.

Tall striker Stefan Maierhofer had Millwall's first effort on target after 15 minutes, but he blasted the ball straight at Marco Silvestri after a quick break upfield.

The Lions grew in confidence and almost took the lead a couple of minutes later, as Jos Hooiveld's header from a corner flashed just over the bar.

Leeds got the breakthrough shortly before half time, as Mowatt's free kick took a deflection and gave David Forde no chance in the Millwall goal.

That breathed confidence into Leeds, who almost doubled their lead shortly after as Rudolph Austin's acrobatic effort was blocked by Forde on the goal line.

Millwall came close to levelling after half time, as Lee Gregory won the ball in the Leeds half before he slipped it through to Martyn Woolford, but he blazed the ball over the bar.

The home side almost confirmed victory in the 75th minute, as Mirco Antenucci set up Byram at the back post but he blazed the ball over the bar, before Steve Morison later headed over from close range.
