  2. The gaffer's verdict

    FT: Bradford 1-3 Millwall

    Millwall boss Neil Harris tells Sky Sports: "I'm delighted with the result. To bounce back and score three goals was big from my players.

    "We knew what was coming second half. We knew they'd go direct and make the pitch long.

    "I thought Steve Morison was fantastic today. He typifies exactly what Millwall is all about.

    "We've got a long way to go in this tie."

  3. Reaction

    FT: Bradford 1-3 Millwall

    Millwall striker Steve Morison tells Sky Sports: "It's brilliant. Its what we've been doing all year away from home. We can't get carried away but we've done half a job."

  4. Reaction

    FT: Bradford 1-3 Millwall

    Millwall striker Lee Gregory tells Sky Sports: "We didnt expect it to go quite like that, with their penalty. The lads responded briliantly to get a goal so quickly. It took us on, to get the result."

  5. Advantage Millwall

    "It'll be frustrating for the Bradford supporters going away having lost 3-1, but the performance has been ok.

    "There's another game to play and the pressure will all be on Millwall to keep a clean sheet.

    "It's still all there to play for."

  6. FULL-TIME

    Bradford 1-3 Millwall

    The whistle goes. It's a huge result for Millwall.

    They scored three big goals in the first half to come from behind and frustrate a battling Bradford side.

    Bradford 1-3 Millwall

    Neil Redfearn

    Ex-Bradford midfielder at Coral Windows Stadium, BBC Radio Leeds

    "That was a great effort - good hold-up play from Jamie Proctor, good support by Lee Evans, who got onto it quickly and curled it just over the bar. It deserved a goal."

  10. Post update

    Bradford 1-3 Millwall

    Bradford's Lee Evans has a go from the edge of the area but his right-footed shot goes over.

    If it stays like this, Millwall will be sitting pretty ahead of Friday's second leg, that's for sure.

  14. Post update

    Bradford 1-3 Millwall

    Bradford v Millwall

    Things haven't quite fallen for Bradford today, the odd bouncing ball, the rub of the green - it's not been their day.

    Millwall have made it awkward for them. I think they call this 'doing a job on them'.

  15. CLOSE!

    Bradford 1-3 Millwall

    Bradford's Lee Evans has Jordan Archer scurrying across to his near post from a very good long-range free-kick but it goes narrowly wide.

  16. SUBSTITUTION (Bradford)

    Bradford 1-3 Millwall

    Millwall are still threatening at the other end too and Steve Morison curls one from the corner of the box, but it lands on the roof of the net.

    Meanwhile, Bradford bring on Paul Anderson - an Ipswich goal scorer in last season's Championship play-offs - for Tony McMahon.

  17. GREAT SAVE!

    Bradford 1-3 Millwall

    Jordan Archer does well to react quickly and tip Nathan Clarke's bouncing header over the bar from a corner. From the next corner, Bradford threaten again but Millwall scramble it away.

  18. Post update

    Bradford 1-3 Millwall

    Bradford

    That earlier spell of pressure from Bradford seems to have subsided a little. They're starting to run out of time in this game - but this is of course only the first leg.

  19. Post update

    Bradford 1-3 Millwall

    Millwall aim for Steve Morison in the area with a long throw from Carlos Edwards, but Bradford get the ball away.

    Jordan Archer

    "Millwall goalkeeper Jordan Archer has really commanded his box well.

    "Anything around that six-yard box, he's come and gathered, so it might pay for Bradford to mix their set-plays up a bit."
