DUNNE AND BEEV­ERS ARE LIONS’ TAMERS

The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP -

FOR all of Not­ting­ham For­est’s at­tack­ing tal­ent, they came up against two cen­tre-backs, in Alan Dunne and Mark Beev­ers, who haven’t given much away this sea­son.

The pair did an ex­cel­lent job of keep­ing Britt As­som­ba­longa quiet and, once Michail An­to­nio had tired, Mill­wall be­gan to take over.

The Lions came into this one hav­ing lost four of their last five games, but there was no sign of a lack of con­fi­dence from Ian Hol­loway’s men after the break.

Mathias Ranegie would have put them ahead but for a stun­ning stop from Karl Dar­low, while en­er­getic mid­fielder Ed Up­son was a con­stant thorn in For­est’s side.

All in all, Stu­art Pearce will prob­a­bly be the hap­pier of the two bosses as his side re­main un­beaten and the side to catch at the top of the Cham­pi­onship.

If they want to sus­tain a pro­mo­tion charge beyond the au­tumn, though, they will have to im­prove when vis­it­ing in­tim­i­dat­ing grounds like The Den.
