Millwall 1 Cardiff City 0 Championship Game 14 25/10/14

Following on from the 0-0 draw at Wigan Tuesday night, we make that wet and windy midweek point seem more valuable as we take our unbeaten run to four games and take our points tally to 17 and things look a bit more rosier than it did when we lost at home to Birmingham a few weeks back.
Just six points off the play off's and six points from the last relegation spot. Is the glass half full or half empty?  I like to think that its neither, it's slowly filling to the top.

Live on sky, a football match
Just looking, but looking for what

Our first live league game on TV this season. I suppose Sky were looking or hoping for a incident that they could twist and manipulate and show us all as baby eaters or something similar. Nothing for them on that score so that had to devote the time of actually just showing Millwall growing in stature as the game went on and we were unlucky not to win by a bigger margin.

Midfield and everywhere else Scott McDonald usually has one or two decent shots per game and today he didn't disappoint as a screamer of a shot took the paint off the keepers right hand post as it whistled by.  Lee Gregory couldn't improve on his two goal Millwall tally as he controlled a long ball by Shaun Williams and lifted the ball over the Cardiff keeper but a bit to high as it it the bar and the top of the net. He could have had another and Ed Upson missed by a fraction after being set up with some good Millwall play in and around the visitors box.
Cardiff had chances and a double save by the King of goal keepers David Forde send us in to a hand clapping frenzy because we all thought we were going 1-0 down.

In the 54th minute the goal that gave us a first win in nine games lifted us out of seats to about the same hight that the big fella jumped to power home a Shaun Williams on the button corner. What is it about Danny Shittu, he has not played since March because of injury but has made his way onto the bench for a few games but started in this one and straight away he was back doing what he does best, communicating, confidence making, competing and delivering a true captain's role and a true captains goal as he went up for a corner and powerfully headed the ball home. He loves it.
