MATCHDAY LIVE: Wanderers 1 Millwall 1

This live event has finished

4:48pm

Sordell flashes a shot wide after a flick from Davies.

4:47pm

Forde finally getting booked for timewasting...

4:46pm

Header off the line by Nguessan

4:45pm

Forde turns away a shot from Alonso. Heat turning up now.

4:42pm

Sordell is on for Wanderers. Eagles off.

4:34pm

Benik Afobe coming on. For Chungy.

4:33pm

Henry goes easily past Alonso and Chungy and drives a shot at goal that takes a touch off Ream and goes wide of the post. Millwall getting on top now.

4:31pm

Henry produces a great cross from the right – and Nguessan was so close to turning it past Bogdan. Let off for the Whites.

4:24pm

Beevers booked

4:23pm

Ngog unlucky, firing just over the bar after a jinking run.

4:21pm

Attendance today 16,985

4:17pm

Ricketts produced a great cross from the right, Davies got his head to it and it suddenly opened up for Eagles to send a dipping volley at goal, inches over the bar.

4:13pm

Davies lashes a shot just wide after running on to Ngog's flick.

4:12pm

Eagles tries his luck but Forde is equal to his shot. Bright start for the Whites.

4:11pm

Looked like a penalty to me. Wanderers should have at least got a shot in on goal.

4:10pm

Big handball shout against Shittu as Andrews shot towards goal.

4:07pm

Second half about to begin.

4:06pm

Millwall's players back out on the pitch. Doesn't look as if Wanderers will be making any changes.

4:05pm

Wow, it's a special kind of cold in Horwich tonight...

3:51pm

But that's the whistle. Not a classic, but much better than it looked at one point.

3:51pm

Ngog seems to be struggling. Would be a surprise to see him in the second half.

3:47pm

Ngog hassles a mistake out of Beevers. Eagles squares for Spearing, who screws his shot wide of the post from the edge of the box.

3:44pm

Decent football from the Whites on the right with Ricketts, Eagles and Chung-Yong. Improving as the half goes on.

3:41pm

Millwall have certainly taken some liberties this half. They must have wasted five minutes in total.

3:37pm

Now that has dug them out of a hole! Andrews sent Forde the wrong way - his fourth penalty of the season.

3:35pm

GOAL WANDERERS

3:35pm

Andrews to take...

3:35pm

Chung-Yong tripped by Shittu

3:35pm

Pen to Wanderers

3:34pm

Just been told that was the ninth penalty Wanderers have conceded this season.

3:31pm

Boos ring out at the Reebok as Henry misses the target by a matter of inches. Millwall look good for a second one here.

3:27pm

Eagles is having a mare so far. Nothing coming off for him at all.

3:26pm

Ngog drags a shot from the edge of the box wide. But he is getting closer...

3:25pm

Trotter fires just wide with a great effort from 25 yards after Wanderers had scrambled clear Nguessan's cross.

3:24pm

Forde taking his sweet time with the goal kicks.

3:24pm

Davies flicks on for Ngog, who gets his volley all wrong and it ends up among the Millwall fans. They are enjoying their afternoon so far...

3:21pm

Chungy drags a shot wide after Davies had done the dirty work to protect the ball in the penalty box. Wanderers not free flowing, but they are having majority of possession.

3:13pm

Eagles has a chance to equalise with a free kick on edge of the box but curls it well over.

3:13pm

Now the atmosphere takes a different complexion.

3:12pm

Andrews was on his heels, but it was a silly place to play a pass.

3:11pm

What a disaster.... Ream played a daft pass to Andrews, who was on his heels, and Nguessan nicked the ball, played it to Keogh, who was tripped by Knight chasing back. Keogh chipped the penalty home.

3:10pm

GOAL Millwall

3:10pm

Pen to Millwall.

3:08pm

Thought Davies was through there. Some good football between Ngog and Eagles on the right side, but the skipper flagged offside.

3:07pm

Doesn't look as if there are 1,100 Millwall fans who have made the trip but they have made themselves heard early on. Few anti-Sordell chants, but nothing unsavoury.

3:03pm

Davies nearly makes a great start, nearly prodding home Ngog's cross from the left.

3:02pm

And we're off at the Reebok...

2:59pm

Checked the web and I can't find where this referee is from...

2:53pm

And the return of Status Quo's The Wanderer before kick-off!

2:51pm

Last time I organise a chat with McGinlay/Kelly before a game...

2:51pm

And Tom Eaves! I'm typing as I'm reading here...

2:51pm

Josh Vela on the bench too!

2:50pm

Five changes from the cup team - but both Andrews and Afobe have shrugged off injuries to feature in the squad.

2:49pm

No Craig Davies today. He's not quite fit enough, apparently.

2:44pm

And boy those boys can talk!

2:44pm

The reason for the delay is that I was interviewing John McGinlay and Tony Kelly about the White Hot game against Liverpool, which happened 20 years ago tomorrow.

2:43pm

BWFC team: Bogdan, Ricketts, Ream, Knight, Alonso, Spearing, Andrews, Eagles, Chungy, Ngog, K Davies.

Millwall: Forde, Smith, Shittu, Beevers, Lowry, Abdou, Henry, Trotter, Woolford, N'Guessan, Keogh.

2:41pm

Sorry about the delay folks...

1:44pm

No official team news at present, that should be with us about 2pm.

1:37pm

I'm hoping that one or two of the younger lads get a chance on the bench - Sampson, Eaves, Lester all excellent in midweek.

1:36pm

As for team news, I understand that Craig Davies may not quite be fit enough to start. Proabably come off the bench at some point.

1:36pm

Looks like Joe Riley's foot injury is not as bad as first feared, and that he could be involved on Tuesday night. Confirmation on that later, hopefully.

1:32pm

Plenty to like about the performance in the cup against Sunderland (trying to ignore the replay at the moment for fear of losing my core temperature completely) - but chances are there will be changes to that team this afternoon.

1:31pm

I may well end up cryogenically frozen - but hopefully not before seeing Wanderers score some goals, and get back on track after the New Year's Day defeat against Leeds.

1:30pm

It's actually so cold that a steward has just voiced her concern that I'm not wearing a hat or gloves. I forgot them, in truth.

1:30pm

Good afternoon all. Bit parky here at the Breezeblock.

Sorry that Martin Petrov appears to be on his way. No, he isn't much good when it comes to doubling back and defending, but everyone knew that before he arrived. I don't think the Wanderers ever fully utilised his abilities.
Quote of the week from new boy Jan Gregus - "I am not interested in joining any other clubs." I like him already. A few more signings with his attitude and maybe we'll start to look like promotion contenders.
