The Lions break their Play-Off duck...

Apologies, this video is unvailable.

On Saturday 29th May 2010, The Lions finally tasted success in the Play-Offs.

After numerous Semi-Final defeats to the likes of Brighton and Hove Albion, Wigan Athletic and more, plus a Final loss to Scunthorpe United the previous campaign, Millwall arrived back at Wembley to take on Swindon Town for a place in The Championship after seeing off Huddersfield Town over two legs in the final four.

In contrast to the red-hot temperatures of the Iron reverse, overcast skies loomed over the home of football as Kenny Jackett's side took the field - but Paul Robinson's first-half poke at goal ensured that The Lions went home happy with a first-ever Play-Off crown and a place in the second tier in 2010/11.

To mark the 10th anniversary of this historic occasion, the club's official Twitter account, @MillwallFC, are replaying moments from the day, whilst on, supporters can hear from the main man himself - Robinson - on that Play-Off campaign and the season as a whole.

Millwall: Forde; Barron, Robinson, Ward, Craig (Frampton 44'); Schofield, Trotter, Abdou, Batt (Hackett 70'); Morison, Harris. Subs not used: Sullivan, Alexander, Fuseini, Laird, Obika.
