Millwall gave as good as they got in their gutting loss to Brighton at the weekend and can feel unfortunate not to have gone through to the semi-finals, with the Seagulls mounting a late comeback and taking the game to extra-time before progressing via penalties.
The Lions might be down in the depths of the Championship but, if they can muster performances of that latest calibre on a frequent basis, then relegation to League One looks near impossible.
Neil Harris’ side were excellent from back to front and, on another day, could have easily emerged victorious. It was extremely hard to pick a man of the match at The Den, with each and every man in blue impressing, although one player rose above a poor performance last time out to put in a solid shift at right-back.

Mahlon Romeo was poor in the loss to Bolton – his defending for Gary O’Neil’s winner was diabolical – although he made up for it and some in the weekend’s FA Cup clash.
Here’s what the Millwall faithful had to say about the 23-year-old’s impressive turnaround…
One of the best performances I’ve seen you have, unlucky with the pen. Be proud and take that performance to Leeds ?

Unwritten football rules state: if you play out of your skin you miss in the shoot out. Chin up.
