Highlights: Millwall 2-2 Rochdale

Millwall scored a 90th-minute equaliser to earn an FA Cup fourth-round replay against League One strugglers Rochdale.

Midfielder Ben Thompson found the bottom corner late on to deny Dale a place in the last 16.

Jed Wallace had earlier put Millwall ahead from the penalty spot following a foul by Donervon Daniels.

But Ian Henderson curled in from 18 yards and Matt Done made it 2-1 to Dale with a tap-in at the back post before Thompson's late contribution.

Dale are 23rd in League One and had lost five of their previous six games in all competitions, but they were good value for their lead, with Millwall goalkeeper David Martin busy throughout.

Keith Hill's side had eight shots on target, with Andy Cannon going close to making it 3-1.

However, Millwall, who were looking for a seventh consecutive home FA Cup win, bombarded the Rochdale penalty area and were rewarded by Thompson's late goal that forced a replay.
