Millwall climbed to 12th in the Championship thanks to Ben Marshall’s second-half goal against struggling Burton Albion.

Burton had the better of the first half, with Lucas Akins shooting over and Darren Bent missing two good chances – notably when he blazed wide after running through.

Hope Akpan also headed wide before Millwall improved after the interval.

And Marshall earned victory when he bundled the ball in from close range.

Burton, who drop to second from bottom after Barnsley won at Birmingham, threatened to grab a point late on.

But both Lloyd Dyer and Tom Naylor were off target as opportunities came their way.

Burton boss Nigel Clough:

“Over the course of the game and with the chances we created and the manner of the winning goal, it’s a very poor result.

“Players are human and they miss chances. We had enough chances at Ipswich, here against Forest and today to win all three games.

“The most disappointing thing today is that we have lost it to a fluke of a goal. I am not quite sure how we have lost.”

Millwall boss Neil Harris:

“We have no fear of the division anymore. Four in a row away from home and anyone that has seen us all season, we could easily have double that on the road.

“That was probably our worst performance on the road this year, barring Norwich.

“I certainly felt that Burton should have took something out of the game. I have to give the credit to my players for finding another way of winning a game.”
