Millwall 3-0 Blackpool

Millwall earned a comfortable victory against struggling 10-man Blackpool.

The Lions went ahead when Lee Gregory headed Carlos Edwards' long throw before Jed Wallace doubled their lead with a 20-yard free-kick.

The visitors nearly found the net when Brad Potts fired from range but saw Hayden White receive a second yellow for a shirt-pull on Shane Ferguson.

The hosts were awarded a penalty when Tom Aldred handled the ball, which Steve Morison converted from the spot.

Millwall manager Neil Harris told BBC Radio London:

"I didn't feel we were at our best today. It certainly wasn't free-flowing.

"We were clinical, we were organised, we were disciplined, we were solid, and it's a really pleasing result.

"Blackpool came and made it difficult for us but we just showed our quality at vital times."
