Gallery | Gillingham 1-2 Millwall

8 May 2016

Best of the action from Sunday's game

It was drama at the death as Millwall finally ended their Priestfield Stadium hoodoo with a first win in 11 attempts in the sweltering sunshine on Sunday afternoon.

Aiden O'Brien had put The Lions in the driving seat with a 55th-minute opener, steering the ball home after Steve Morison's initial shot had been parried by keeper Stuart Nelson.

However the game looked to have turned on its head when Mahlon Romeo was dismissed on 86 minutes and John Egan grabbed an injury-time equaliser for the home side.

But in a final twist, Lee Grgeory - who underwent surgery less than two weeks ago on a stomach injury - stepped up in the eighth minute of injury-time to fire home the winning goal from the penalty spot after he had been fouled by Brennan Dickenson.

It was the perfect way for The Lions to sign off the regular season and now all thoughts have already turned to a a tough two-leg semi-final against Bradford City.
