With no league fixture this weekend owing to the international break, Millwall arranged a behind closed doors friendly with West Ham for today.

The match finished two all thanks to goals from Andy Keogh and Richard Chaplow, but importantly centre half Mark Beevers also got minutes under his belt as he returned from six weeks on the sidelines.

Millwall took the lead after only 14 minutes when a Lee Martin cross was finished off by Keogh, but West Ham found a leveller after 30 minutes. We retook the lead on 68 minutes with Keogh playing his part again as he charged down a clearance from their keeper, leaving Chaplow to finish from close range. Again though West Ham equalised eight minutes later to even things up.

Speaking to the official site assistant boss Mick Halford said of the run out.

‘It was a good work out against a strong West Ham team. This was beneficial for everyone who played, there were people who haven’t played a full 90 minutes for a while, young lads who could get acclimatized to playing in a different stadium – it was a good all round work out.’
