    • 89' Three minutes to be added to this match.
    • 88' The visitors going to continue with a miserable sequence of results on the road. They have taken only one point from a possible 24 against teams in the top half of the table.
    • 86' Barnsley have won on two of their last three trips to Millwall, but not tonight.
    • 85' A fifth consecutive home win for Millwall is looming. Chance for Morison, but the visiting defence get back to clear the danger.
    • 84' Haynes fouls Purse and that is a free-kick to the visiting side.
    • 83' Abdou gives the ball away for Millwall. Barnsley unable to take advantange.
    • 81' So Millwall going to be up to eighth place in the table with this win.
    • 80' Ball breaks to Trotter at the edge of the box. Looks to pass to Barron, but too much pace on the ball. Throw-in to Barnsley deep in their own half.
    • 79' Alistair Taylor replaces Jacob Butterfield for Barnsley.
    • 78' The visiting side working hard, but have yet to see a reward for their output in this second period.
    • 77' Going to be another change for the visiting side. Looks to be all over. Barnsley will stay in 13th place in the table after this result.
    • 76' Barnsley with 13 shots on goal compared to 12 from Millwall, but the home side continue to lead 2-0.
    • 75' Harris almost adds the third with his left foot. Looked to chip the keeper, but just too high with that effort.

    • 73' Golden chance for Butterfield, but he sees his shot blocked by Dunne. Barnsley throwing more bodies forward.
    • 72' Harris unmarked at the back post, but his team-mates fail to pick him out. Header from Bennett, but he is off target with that one.
    • 71' Steven Bennett replaces Garry O'Connor. Time ticking down for Barnsley here.

    • 66' Barnsley still in possession. Going to be a change here for the home side.
    • 65' Purse makes the clearance, but Colace meets the ball before Schofield feeds Dunne. Henry is then beaten in the air before the ball is back with the visiting side.
    • 64' Schofield links with Barron and Abdou. Neat play before Barron is deemed to be offside.
    • 63' Haynes nods over the bar for Barnsley. Time ticking down if Barnsley want to take any points from this match.
    • 62' More polished attacking play by the home side. Henry nudges a shot over the bar from Morison's ball. Looked like a third there.
    • 61' O'Connoer clatters Mkandawire and that is a free-kick to the the home side.
    • 60' Not much change in the pattern of the game. One more goal from Barnsley here will surely kill this match off.
    • 59' Chance here for the visitors. O'Brien drills in a shot with some pace. Abdou makes the block. Impressive enough defending.

    • 55' Hill takes a free-kick. Barnsley continue to struggle to achieve any forward momentum. Eastmond is guilty of foul play on Eastmond.
    • 54' Barnsley win a free-kick after Butterfield is fouled by Eastmond. Bit of a struggle for the visiting side at the moment.
    • 53' The home side appeal for a penalty. Henry went to ground in the area, but think he just collapsed under his own body weight.
    • 52' Offside flag goes up against O'Connor. Poor play by the visiting forward.
    • 51' Haynes dashes beyond Purse. Showing some terrific pace to go beyond the Millwall player. Fires in a shot, but his effort is blocked.

    • 49' Haynes turns and shoots on the edge of the box. Just off target. Could have been a goal for the visiting side.

    • 43' The home fans in a party mood this evening. No worries for them so far.
    • 42' Millwall are looking likely to record a fourth straight victory and will hope to extend that run against a Barnsley team that has struggled on the road this season.
    • 41' Great strike from big Purse. Not far from finding the net. Millwall with seven shots to three from the home side.
    • 40' Chance for Trotter. Was going to pull the trigger, but Shackell gets back to make the block. Solid defending.
    • 39' Millwall will be five points off second place if they can win this game.
    • 38' Henry with another ball forward. Hill picks out Butterfield with a nice pass, but he goes to ground. Another chance gone for the visiting side.
    • 37' Henry is dashing through the middle, but he is guilty of a handball before he was fouled seconds later.
    • 36' Chance for Millwall to make it three, but Steele makes a fine diving stop to halt Morison's shot. That would have killed the match stone dead as a contest.

    • 32' GOAL FOR MILLWALL! Henry's cross cum shot deflects off Hill and flies beyond Steele. The home side lead 2-0.

    • 30' Eastmond closes down Shackell, but the Barnsley player brings it out. Millwall sitting deep before Abdou collects the loose ball.
    • 29' Mkandawire knocks the ball back to Forde from Trippier's ball. All a bit messy at the moment.
    • 28' O'Connor dropping too deep. Haynes tries to race beyond Dunne, but that is a fine tackle. Ball back with Millwall.
    • 27' Trippier takes the free-kick after O'Connor was fouled, but easy take for Forde in the home goal.
    • 26' Schofield goes too early and is deemed to be offside before Purse heads the ball out.
    • 25' Forde punches clear from the corner, but he was being fouled. Free-kick to Millwall.
    • 24' Eastmond coming forward with the ball, but Schofield takes possession. His control lets him down. Meanwhile, Butterfield whacks the ball off a home player and the visitors have a corner.
    • 23' The home side enjoying 55% of possession. Barnsley coming off a 2-0 win at Doncaster on Tuesday night.
    • 22' Millwall continue on the offensive. Morison are certainly causing problems with Trotter plaing just off him.
    • 21' Chance for the visiting side! Colace clips a shot, but failed to evade Forde, who makes an easy enough stop. Another chance gone for the visiting team.
    • 20' Eastmond fouls O'Brien and Barnsley have a free-kick. Colace trying to get in there, but Henry helps the ball out of the box.

    • 17' Purse giving the ball away there. The visiting team back on the ball. Dunne forces Colace wide before Millwall make the clearance.
    • 16' Some more fine play by Morison. Not lacking confidence after that goal. Dunne was almost in at the back post there. Ball glanced off O'Connor and past for another corner.
    • 15' Can't really say that goal wasn't coming. O'Connor goes to ground under pressure from Barron, but no foul.
    • 14' GOAL FOR MILLWALL! Henry finds Morison and he slides the ball home from five yards out. Easy finish.
    • 13' Forde with the goalkick for the home side. Millwall have had most of the possession, but the visitors are the first side to threaten.
    • 12' Chance for Barnsley! Colace hammers a shot at goal from the edge of the box, but that is over the bar. Good chance gone for the visiting side.
    • 11' Barnsley have not been seen much in an attacking sense. All Millwall at the moment. Purse hooks the ball forward before Abdou clatters O'Connor.
    • 10' Barron looks to play in Schofield, but the ball races through and that is back to Steele in the visiting goal.
    • 9' Good header there from Morison, but too near Steele. Freezing cold night at The Den on this Friday evening. The home side just edging possession. Ball back with Schofield.
    • 8' Henry tries to pick out Schofield. Just fails to cross to him. Millwall continue on the attack. Morison on the attack, but Steele comes to collect.

    • 6' Foul by Dunne on O'Connor and that is a free-kick to the visiting side.
    • 5' Abdou in possession. Ball breaks to Schofield, but the ball into the middle has too much pace on it and that is an easy take for the visiting keeper Steele.
    • 4' Millwall playing 4-4-1-1. Morison on the run, but Barnsley deal with the trouble. Was a fine ball by Barron from the back.
    • 3' Decent start by Millwall in this one. Forcing the early pressure. Morison waiting for the ball to reach him, but Eastmond gives the ball away and Barnsley can get out of their half.
    • 2' These two clubs are meeting for the first time in nine seasons, with Millwall aiming to recover from Saturday's 4-2 loss at Leicester - their first defeat in 10 matches.
