FULL-TIME: Millwall 2 Blackburn Rovers 2

FOR the second game running Rovers scored an injury-time equaliser to rescue a point at struggling Millwall.

Substitute Josh King netted his second goal of the season in the 92nd minute to earn Gary Bowyer’s side, who played most of the second half with 10 men after captain Grant Hanley was controversially sent off in the 56th minute, a hard-earned draw.

The Lions opened the scoring a minute after Hanley received his second red card of the campaign as Shaun Williams converted the resulting penalty.

Rovers levelled in the 65th minute when Michael Keane headed in his first goal for the club since signing on loan from Manchester United.

But they fell behind for the second time in the 88th minute after Keane gave away another penalty which Simeon Jackson fired past Paul Robinson.

Millwall’s midweek loss to relegation rivals Birmingham City stretched their winless home run to six matches and ensured they slumped to the bottom of the table.

But any thoughts that Rovers, who came into the game on the back of a three-match unbeaten run, were in for a comfortable afternoon were dispelled inside the first five minutes.

Twice Robinson was called into action as the former England goalkeeper tipped over a Scott McDonald header before he gathered on his line after Steve Morison stooped low to meet an Owen Garvan corner.

Morison, who felt he was fouled, should have scored.

But so should Luke Varney two minutes later.

The on-loan Leeds United forward, back in the Rovers team after Rudy Gestede pulled out with a groin injury, raced on to a fine David Dunn pass threaded behind the Lions defence to go clean through on David Forde.

But he could only shoot straight at the Republic of Ireland international with the loose ball being cleared away from danger.

Varney had another opening to go one-on-one with Forde later in the half after Tommy Spurr crossed. However his touch let him down.

Recalled Rovers captain Hanley had earlier missed an even better opportunity, heading inches over from a Craig Conway corner when he should have hit the target.

But it was Ian Holloway’s side who went closest to scoring in a first half low on quality but high on chances when Garvan smacked a left-footed free kick from the side of the area against the far post.

From the resulting breakaway Jordan Rhodes cut inside and saw a low 20-yard shot comfortably saved by Forde, who looked highly suspect from back passes and balls into the boxes, at one stage missing a long Spurr throw completely.

Robinson then got down low to his left to deny McDonald after he cut inside on to his right foot and let fly from 20 yards before Corry Evans blazed over from the edge of the area after Rhodes chested the ball into his path.

Rovers, while not playing particularly badly, were lacking sharpness, although they were not helped by the poor state of the pitch.

But matters did not improve immediately after the restart and they fell behind in the 57th minute after Hanley was adjudged to have bundled Morison over in the box.

And salt was rubbed into the wounds when the Scotland international was given his marching orders despite the fact that his impressive centre-back Matt Kilgallon was back to cover.

But Williams showed no mercy, sending Robinson the wrong way from the spot with the inside of his left foot.

Millwall suddenly had their tails up and Garvan and McDonald were not far away with speculative strikes from distance.

But Rovers, with Lions old boy Chris Taylor on for Dunn, equalised 25 minutes from time.

A Conway corner swung deep to the back post was missed by the hapless Forde and there was Keane to head home.

But Forde redeemed himself in the 78th minute to deny Keane his second goal as he brilliantly palmed away the defender's looping header from a teasing Conway free kick.

Rovers were finishing the stronger so it came as a hammer blow when Keane fouled Jackson in the area.

The Lions sub did the rest from the spot.

And Jackson should have scored again a minute later after fellow sub Stefan Maierhofer set him clear.

Robinson, however, saved with his legs.

It proved a crucial moment.

As two minutes into injury-time the ball was played back into the box and King, who moments earlier had brought a superb stop out of Forde, did well to nudge it into the side of the net to the delight of the travelling supporters behind the goal.

Millwall: Forde, Fredericks, Lowry, Beevers, Williams (Malone 82), Edwards (Maierhofer 83), Abdou, Garvan, Onyedinma (Jackson 59), McDonald, Morison. Subs not used: Bywater, Robinson, Upson, Woolford.

He must have been creaming his pyjamas when Millwall scored their second penalty and utterly devastated at not being able to gloat at a defeat. Add to that, his beloved Burnley getting beat, there will be much grumpiness in the Care Home tonight.

Same old Rovers, strong in midfield creating quite a bit for the front men, awful in defence. Harsh decision or not, Hanley let the side down by getting sent off and this isn't the first time. Spurr is the only decent established defender we have and the key to success is across the squad and the way we defend we will never be any better than mid table championship. As much as I hate to admit it, the sky commentator got it spot on when, even with the likes of the single front men scoring for fun Burnleys position is down to the fact they had only conceded 11 all season at home before today. Still, we won't go down so write the season off and hope we can get a defence in close season to rival the midfield and attack because any team thinking about promotion would have put Millwall away with ease.

If the match had been played on paper then of course Rovers and most other teams would have beat Millwall today but unfortunately Millwall games are not played on paper but on a muddy ploughed meadow with a side desperate for survival. Personally, I don't believe that failure to make the playoffs warrants writing the season off and I am looking forward to the games next week when we will be playing for pride and hopefully trying out new playing combinations ahead of next seasons promotion campaign.

Next season with a fully fit squad, better tactics such as Cairney in the centre of midfield surely we can be challenging near the top of the league.

I see another Dingle has joined the injury list. Looks like their best 4 players will now be missing for the Watford game. Mind you, I can't think that any other team in history has ever blown such a lead as the one that the Dingles currently have and so they would have to be the World's biggest bottlers ever to throw it away now. Mind you, that's not to say that there won't be a lot of pressure on them, especially as their entire financial well-being is riding on it, now that with their parachute payments have come to an end.

You Dingles just stay calm though, because, as I say, no other team has EVER blown such a lead with so few games left!

It's not where you are now that counts it's where you are at the end of the season.

I managed to catch all but the first 10 minutes of Burnley v Leicester and Burnley were dire, the previous week Rovers ran a very good Leicester ragged for much of the second half and I said at the time they would be too much for you, nice to be right again.

You might be lucky, you have been all season, because as you rightly point out 10 points is a big gap, but with your three best players missing through injury you look extremely ordinary and if you don't get them back fully fit PDQ, looking at your run of fixtures I can't see where your next points are coming from.

QPR are still spluttering like a Model T but it looks like Derby have woken up again, possibly a little too late but you never know.

BTW, what's with the cabbage patch pitch? Don't you have a groundsman anymore? It's a disgrace, we have better pitches on our local playing fields.

And the crowd? Well for such an important game when with a 2-0 win you would have gone to the top of the league, well even the most die hard Burnley fan must be embarrassed at that turn out, especially as most of it had gone long before the end.

Sort of prophetic really.

Back to the real reason behind this thread Rovers v Millwall.

Haven't seen the highlights yet but we can't continue to gift home sides with free shots on goal from the spot and expect to come away with three points.

We have conceded 9 penalties away from home this season drawing 5 of those games and losing 4, in only one of those 4 games v Forest the penalty awarded didn't matter.

So that is anywhere up to 13 points given away to penalties so far, in as competitive a league as this that is an awful lot of points. Where would we be with just 6 or 7 of those wasted points?

That said this is two away games on the trot that we have gone behind late on only to battle back and get a deserved point, 12 months ago heads would have gone down, not with this Rovers squad.

Things are changing, GB deserves a lot of credit, he is building a squad that has a lot of character, desire not to mention skill, something that has been badly missing for some time.

Now we just need some luck.

3 points on Tuesday (won't be easy) and we will be 5 points behind, with so many clubs in the mix all taking points off each other that will make it a very interesting run in to the end to the season.

I agree that before the game most of us would have expected to win against the bottom side. But having been to both away games this week most Rovers fans would I think agree that we are making progress from the dark days of last season. Cliches suggest that luck evens itself out, but yesterday they were two poor penalty decisions and an appalling decision for the sending off. Without that we ought to have eventually been able to grind out a win.
Sure we are too porous at the back, and urgently need a right back - Jason Lowe is looking better and better with every game he misses - but the spirit is good and we are developing a more attractive style of play.
Central midfield needs a bit more energy and mobility, which Cairney will provide, and in him, Hanley, Gestede, Rhodes and Conway we have a strong start to next season's side. Bowyer has generally bought well and Rovers fans should support him, start to get over the recent past and look forward with more optimism.

Your just being silly now...concentrate on your own problems, short staffed for the final run in. Hope you don't blow up on the home straight....no, really, honest I'm not taking the watsit....well, ok a bit maybe
By the way Baldric we are still 8 points off the play offs, as we were before the game so your point is.....??

My point is that you have now dropped to 12th place. Basically this means that you have allowed yet another team to go above you which in effect makes your pathetic claim for the play-offs, hilarious though it is, just that little bit harder. Mission Impossible I would say.

You'd be better off keeping an eye on the teams below you, as you're not mathematically safe yet.

27 points.
