How they rated

Wales On Sunday - - SPORT SUNDAY - BY DO­MINIC BOOTH

NEIL ETHERIDGE

Made a smart stop with his legs when Bamba’s un­der-hit back­pass gifted a chance for Mori­son and saved again from the front­man after the in­ter­val.

LEE PELTIER

Bat­tled hard and self­lessly switched to the left once Ben­nett had gone off to show he is the ul­ti­mate team man. Rarely flashy, but al­ways de­pend­able.

BRUNO MANGA

Started with a cou­ple of sloppy early touches and put a 28th-minute header over the cross­bar. Looked un­set­tled and off the pace through­out. Not his usual com­posed self.

SEAN MOR­RI­SON (C)

Solid with­out be­ing spec­tac­u­lar. We’re used to say­ing that about the Cardiff cap­tain and he did well enough against the Lions’ for­wards and will be happy with a clean sheet.

JOE BEN­NETT

Asked to pro­vide width in a left wing-back po­si­tion as Ju­nior Hoi­lett drifted in­side, but limped off in­jured after 35 min­utes.

CRAIG BRYSON

Ran his socks off, as usual, but never re­ally got enough time on the ball to as­sert him­self. The on-loan man was as im­pres­sive as his pre­vi­ous dis­plays.

JOE RALLS

Guilty of play­ing too many side­ways passes and not tak­ing the game by the scruff of the neck. Booked late on.

NATHANIEL MEN­DEZ-LAING

A barn­storm­ing early burst down the right was typ­i­cal of the winger’s im­pact on this team. He’s al­most al­ways one of the pro­tag­o­nists for this Warnock side if a lit­tle waste­ful at times here.

JU­NIOR HOI­LETT

Given the free­dom to drift in­side and switch places with Men­dez-Laing, but lacked an end prod­uct. It wasn’t the Cana­dian’s best dis­play, for sure. He con­ceded too many soft fouls that al­lowed Millwall’s back four an easy es­cape.

DANNY WARD

Strug­gled to hold the ball up against the Lions’ back two, but went close twice in the first half and did his best with some hard run­ning. He’s much bet­ter when given the ball along the deck.

SUB­STI­TUTES

Calum Pater­son (for Ben­nett, 37) Made an im­pact. 7 Omar Bogle (for Ward, 64) Wasn’t pre­sented with a clear chance. 6 Lee Tom­lin (for Bryson, 74) Brought on a lit­tle too late. 6 Subs not used: Mur­phy, Feeney, Hal­ford, Damour.

MILLWALL

Archer, McLaugh­lin, Hutchin­son, Cooper, Mered­ith, Wal­lace (Onyed­inma, 90), Tun­ni­cliffe, Sav­ille, O’Brien (El­liott, 78), Gre­gory (Fer­gu­son, 78), Mori­son. Subs not used: Martin, Craig, Thomp­son, Romeo.
