2016/17 season review: August and September

Part one of our look back at a memorable campaign...

13 June 2017

Millwall's 2016/17 Sky Bet League One campaign began in the August Den sunshine against Oldham Athletic.

A Lee Gregory penalty, Aiden O'Brien and Byron Webster eased The Lions to a 3-0 victory, before O'Brien was on target once more in a 4-0 EFL Cup first round demolition of Barnet.

David Worrall's first goal for the club was part of a mad nine minutes at Stadium MK the following Saturday in a 2-2 draw against MK Dons, but a 5-1 defeat at the hands of Peterborough United ensured Millwall's first loss of the season.

They were to bounce back, however, courtesy of Steve Morison's last-minute penalty in a 2-1 win over Sheffield United, before Neil Harris' men rounded off August with a superb 3-1 success at Chesterfield - but not before Shaun Williams had scored from halfway in an EFL Cup second round loss to Nottingham Forest.

West Bromwich Albion were swept aside in the opening round of Checkatrade Trophy Group Stage matches, with consecutive 1-1 draws at home to Bradford City and Coventry City keeping The Lions' Den record in the League in tact.

A sticky September followed, though, with three losses on the bounce to Southend United (1-3), Rochdale (2-3) and Port Vale (1-3) seeing the club slip to 17th place in the table at the end of the month.

Take a look at our gallery from the first two months of the campaign above and keep a look out for part two of our review on millwallfc.co.uk on Wednesday.
