Gallery | Bradford City 1-3 Millwall

All the best of the action from Sunday's Play-Off Semi-Final first leg

A trio of first-half goals coupled with a disciplined defensive display in the second-half provided the foundations for an excellent awayday win as Millwall recorded a 3-1 League One Semi-Final first leg win at Bradford City on Sunday.

Prior to the game starting Lions Chairman John Berylson, who had flown over from the States for the match, laid a wreath at Valley Parade Fire Memorial on behalf of the Club.

Once the game was underway, an early Tony McMahon penalty put The Bantams 1-0 ahead with just 13 minutes on the clock but Millwall's response was swift, coming barely 60 seconds later with a super shot on the turn from Lee Gregory to level matters up.

Skipper Steve Morison then produced a bullet header on 34 minutes to put The Lions ahead and a sublime free-kick from left-back Joe Martin handed Neil Harris' men a 3-1 lead at the break.

Despite being under the cosh for long spells of the second period, Millwall keeper Jordan Archer was so well protected by his team-mates that his goal was rarely threatened as Millwall stood firm to protect their precious two-goal cushion ahead of Friday night's second leg at The Den.
