Bradford City 1 Millwall 3, League One Play-Off Semi Final, 1st leg, Sunday 15/5/16, att:19,241 ( 1,828)


I had a bounce in my step today as I headed for work and I couldn't wait to talk about football when I got there. Roll on Friday

This is what supporting Millwall is all about, every now and then we are blessed with special times


With a two goal lead to take back to the Den this Friday night things are looking good. I know it's still only half-time and there is still a lot to do but we are now back at our place and I have just heard that all the home tickets are gone and its sold out.  Bring on the roar and bring on the Lions.

When we went 1-0 down Saturday because Joe Martin felt the need to handle the ball in the box and concede a penalty I am sure a few of us said, "oh shit" when they scored from the spot and were expecting the worse to follow but then to watch shortly after Lee Gregory collect a ball from Steve Morison, spin and the fire the ball passed the Bradford keeper was a joy and a goal of great craft. With the score back to 1-1 and Millwall pushing for more Steve Morison with great presence run into space from a Shane Ferguson corner and with a powerful header beat the keeper just under the bar. The keeper was clutching thin air for that and he was again just before half-time when a superb Joe Martin free kick curled just inside the right-hand post and we had the game in the bag.. Bradford went for it second half but apart from a Bradford miss from when Carlos Edwards lost the ball on the by-line we finished the game in control and we looked solid all over the pitch. That's 45 goals between Lee Gregory and Steve Morison this season and a chance to add some more.

From the Yorkshire Post--A big ask for Bradford, going to Bloomfield Road or the Perelli Stadium and overcoming a first leg deficit is one thing. Doing it at Millwall in front of arguably the most hostile crowd in English football is quite another.
