Report: Welling United 0 Millwall U21s 2

29 July 2014

Full-time from Park View Road

Millwall U21s maintained their unbeaten pre-season with a solid 2-0 win at Conference South side Welling United.

It was another promising performance from Neil Harris' young charges who secured victory thanks to a first-half brace from Magaye Gueye and Aiden O'Brien.

Welling enjoyed a spell of early pressure and striker Kieran St Aimie was denied a clear shot on goal midway through the half by a great block from Keaton Wood. From the resulting corner, it took an excellent save from keeper Denzel Gerrar to tip Chris Bush's goal-bound header over.

Millwall took the lead with a smashing low finish from Gueye, who broke into the danger zone and arrowed a low shot into the bottom right hand corner beyond the reach of Wings' keeper Lee Butcher.

O'Brien continued his excellent pre-season form adding The Lions second goal on the stroke of half-time. O'Brien, on target against Billericay at the weekend, produced another clinical finish, this time a crisp right-foot effort that gave Butcher no chance.

Coach Harris introduced trialists Antoine Tchang Tchong at left-back and frontman Sofiane El Bekri at the start of the second-half, and the latter so nearly made made it 3-0 within seconds of the restart, seeing his close-range shot expertly blocked by Butcher.

Both teams created half-chances as the game wore on, but there were to be no further goals and Millwall confidently saw out the game to secure a deserved victory.
