Media round-up of Millwall's weekend win over Blackpool

There's nothing like a good win for The Lions to make it easier looking at the newspapers on a Sunday and Monday morning, and this weekend's 3-0 victory over Blackpool made for more pleasant reading for Millwall fans.

Goals in the first-half from Lee Gregory, Jed Wallace - his first since joining on loan from Wolves - and a late Steve Morison penalty clinched three more points as The Lions consolidated their place in fifth spot.

The national press spoke to goalscorer Jed after Saturday's game, and here is what has appeared in one of the papers since:

Wallace is a 'Wall ace said Monday's Sun which stated: Jed Wallace warned no-one will want to face in-form Millwall in the promotion race.

The midfielder scored as the Lions breezed past struggling Blackpool to cement their place in the play-off places.

Millwall have lost just once in 11 league games under Neil Harris so Wallace is hoping for big things.

He said: "It's a crucial month for us. We have some massive games coming up. No-one will want to be playing Millwall at the moment. We are big, strong, aggressive and are looking good."

Wallace, on loan from Wolves, fired a first-half free-kick to add to a Lee Gregory strike and a Steve Morison penalty. It was Wallace's first goal of the season.

He said: "It's been a long time coming. If you don't believe in yourself no-one is going to, so it's good to get the goal and the three points.

"It's been that long since I scored I'd almost forgotten how to celebrate!"

Blackpool now face back-to-back relegations five seasons after being in the Premier League.

Manager Neil McDonald said: "It's the first time I've said it this season but we were poor, we didn't deserve to win.

"We are in a relegation battle now."
