Local derby ends in draw

Our report from Princes Park...

1 February 2021

Millwall's Under 23s drew 1-1 with Charlton Athletic in the Professional Development League on Monday afternoon.

George Alexander gave Kevin Nugent's side the lead in first-half stoppage-time, but Richard Afrane-Kesey equalised in the second-half to earn The Addicks a point.

Alexander saw a penalty saved by Nathan Harness, whilst Connor Mahoney and Billy Mitchell played a part in the fixture.

The Lions started the game on top and attempted to force the issue on numerous occasions, but despite finding ways into the penalty area through Dan Moss and Mahoney, the score remained goalless.

The first major talking point of the game came with 26 minutes on the clock as the referee pointed to the penalty spot after Alexander was hauled down by Harness. The same duo faced each other seconds later once the striker had put the ball on the spot, but Alexander's powerful kick was well saved by the goalkeeper.

Billy French's header went past Ryan Sandford's far post as Charlton began to probe for the opening goal, but it duly arrived at the other end in injury-time of the first-half as Alexander was suitably placed at the front post to turn home a cross.

Reuben Duncan - a half-time substitute for Mitchell - was the first to try his luck after the break, but his shot was deflected behind, before Alex Mitchell and Moss both had attempts shortly after but were unable to find a way through to goal.

With 18 minutes left to play, however, Charlton equalised as Afrane-Kesey found himself unmarked inside the box and able to plant a header past Sandford.

Sean O'Brien and Tyler Burey then had opportunities to put The Lions back in front, but the hosts' defence remained firm and the points were shared.

Next up for Millwall's Under 23s is the rearranged fixture against Queens Park Rangers on Friday afternoon.

Millwall: Sandford, Moss, Tiensia, Muller, A. Mitchell, Topalloj (Davis 81'), Burey, B. Mitchell (Duncan 46'), Alexander, Mahoney (O'Brien 45'), Skeffington. Subs not used: Strachan, Boateng.
