Boss Lomas pleased with Cup progression

Second-half goals from Andy Keogh and Martyn Woolford were enough to secure Millwall's passage through to the Second Round of the Capital One Cup at the expense of Neal Ardley's AFC Wimbledon.

A late strike from Dons substitute Luke Moore turned out to be little else than a consolation strike, and Lions manager Steve Lomas was satisfied with his team's performance in the 2-1 victory.

"As a manager you're always pleased to win," he admitted. "Everything after that is secondary. I felt there was a lot of positives to take away from tonight's performance. We maybe weren't as clinical as we should've been but we did create a lot of opportunities.

"The application of the lads to do what I wanted of them was good. That's something we have in abundance - honest boys who give it everything. As well, Nicky Bailey got another 70 minutes under his belt and Robbo played the full 90. There wasn't a bad performance in the team."

Stephen Bywater made his Lions debut in place of David Forde, who underwent surgery on his left knee on Tuesday afternoon.

"We're hoping David will be back in around four weeks. We may have to look at something short-term. Andy Marshall has been training with us and could be an option."
