Tom Elliott joined Millwall from AFC Wimbledon this summer

Tom Elliott scored two second-half goals as Millwall saw off League Two side Stevenage to seal their place in the EFL Cup second round.

Stevenage came closest to breaking the deadlock in the first half when Tom King saved Chris Whelpdale's shot.

Elliott headed Millwall into the lead just before the hour mark after latching on to Fred Onyedinma's ball.

Seven minutes later, Elliott doubled the hosts' advantage when he headed home Shane Ferguson's delivery.
