Millwall’s League 1 season concluded with a win against Gillingham at Priestfield on Sunday.

A dramatic injury-time penalty saw Millwall to a two-one win over Gillingham (making certain they missed the top six) to also earn home advantage in the second leg of the semi-final with Bradford after finishing in fourth.

Millwall went into the lead when Aiden O’Brien was on hand to tap home his 13th-goal of the season early in the second half but we went down to 10-men late on when Mahlon Romeo was shown a red card, which rules the defender out of the play-offs.

So incensed was Neil Harris his protests also saw him sent to the stands!

John Egan equalised for Gillingham in injury-time but Millwall still had the chance to win it with in the dying moments of (an extended period) injury-time time with Lee Gregory converting from the penalty spot to see the Lions play the second leg of the semi-final at the Den, which could prove crucial?

Here’s a round up of the League 1 action from the other games played at the weekend….

These were the other results.

Sunday 8th May 2016
Bradford 2-0 Chesterfield
Bury 3-2 Southend
Colchester 1-2 Rochdale
Doncaster 0-0 Burton
Fleetwood 2-0 Crewe
Gillingham 1-2 Millwall
Oldham 0-2 Coventry
Peterborough 5-1 Blackpool
Port Vale 0-5 Walsall
Sheff Utd 0-2 Scunthorpe
Swindon 3-0 Shrewsbury
Wigan 1-4 Barnsley

Burton (nil-nil) drew at Doncaster to confirm automatic promotion as runners up to Champions Wigan, with this also rubber-stamping the Donny relegation into League 2.

A Walsall (five-nil) win at Port Vale wasn’t enough for them to gain automatic promotion, the Saddlers needed Burton to lose so they’ll now take a play-off place with the final spot confirmed by Barnsley (four-one) who won at Wigan, who saw their title party tainted slightly.

The Tykes finished in sixth on goal-difference ahead of Scunthorpe (two-nil) who won at Sheffield United; with the final side battling for that final place Gillingham (two-one) losing at Millwall, which made certain they missed out.

One final relegation spot needed to be filled with this taken by Blackpool (five-one) after they were beaten at Peterborough – they would have gone down even with a win due to the three-points Fleetwood (two-nil) collected against already relegated Crewe.
