Millwall’s League 1 season continued with a win against Burton at the Den on Easter Monday.

First half goals, within six-minutes of each other, were enough to not only see Millwall beat leaders Burton two-nil but to give the Lions a bit of a gap between us and play-off rivals once more.

Aiden O’Brien had Millwall ahead on 12-minutes when he fired an effort into the top corner, that after Burton had started well.

The lead was doubled, with the points secured as it turned out, six-minutes later when Lee Gregory went through, rounded Brewers ‘keeper Jon McLaughlin and scored to take the Lions back up to fifth.

Here’s a round up of the League 1 action from the other games played in the second half of the Easter weekend….

These games are to be played.

Tuesday 29th March 2016
Coventry v Colchester

Wednesday 30th March 2016
Southend v Sheff Utd

A familiar scoreline on Easter Monday was one-nil!

Wigan (one-nil) unbeaten run continued with another win with the win over Rochdale moving them closer to a return to the Championship, quite possibly as Champions wit that helped by the results of the leaders Burton (two-nil) later in the day when they were beaten at Millwall.

Those looking to also go up, most likely via the play-off route, are Gillingham, Bradford and Barnsley with all three of them retaining play-off hopes with one-nil wins over Bury, Crewe and Port Vale respectively.

At the other end of the table Blackpool’s (one-nil) win over Doncaster further extended the poor run of form Doncaster have been on, to leave them in serious trouble, with this win at the Keepmoat Stadium moving Pools further away from the bottom four – still work to be done though.

Oldham’s (one-nil) win against Chesterfield helped the Latics’ hopes of staying up too but leaves the Spireites worrying still with it getting tight down the bottom.

Who was the Lions MotM in this game? That’s what the latest poll is asking so do cast a vote.

Did a starter, or someone from the bench, offer the most?
