Aiden O'Brien has scored seven goals in 14 appearances for Millwall this season

Aiden O'Brien scored twice to help Millwall earn a narrow victory at Sheffield United in League One.

Che Adams shot against the outside of the post for the Blades, before the visitors took the lead when O'Brien nodded in Shaun Cummings' cross.

George Saville was denied Millwall's second by keeper Mark Howard, and Jose Baxter then levelled for the hosts.

But O'Brien converted Shane Ferguson's low ball to seal the win and close the gap to the top six to three points.

Millwall manager Neil Harris told BBC Radio London:

Harris post Sheffield

"I think everybody now knows what they're going to get from a Millwall team.

"We weren't at our best today, not with the ball anyway. Without the ball our shape was really good and really organised.

"They really battled and there were some good warriors out there today.

"I think we can do better - we can always do more - but I'm delighted with that and I'm delighted with the week."
