    • 30' Millwall break. Morison skips past his marker on the left wing and squares the ball into the path of SMITH... swept wide of the near post!

    • 24' Steve Morison's 23rd of the season has given Millwall the initiative in this tie.

    • 21' Pilkingoton charges forward and has a shot on the edge of the box blocked. Novak fires the rebound wide but Forde had to make sure. Corner to Huddersfield.
    • 20' Peltier fires in a low cross and Abdou almost beats his own keeper as he slides in to cut it out! Fortunately for Forde, it took a touch off another player and gave him more time to dive and catch.
    • 20' Abdou links up the play nicely in midfield for Millwall, before Craig's cross is headed clear.
    • 18' Drinkwater fights tooth and nail for the ball on the edge of the Millwall box, but a little too much for the referee's liking and concedes the free-kick.
    • 17' Huddersfield again deal with the set piece. The visitors are starting to find each other with a little more frequency, but the frontmen are yet to really see any of the play.
    • 16' Ward lines up a strike from distance that clips off the heel of Morison and wide! The referee has given a corner though...
    • 15' Kenny Jackett is on the touchline in shirt, tie and v-neck jumper. The 'Vialli schoolboy' look.

    • 11' A great open start to this match, with Millwall seeing more of the ball but Huddersfield looking handy on the break.

    • 8' Another Millwall free-kick from deep, this time sent right into the mixer for Morison to head... an easy catch for the keeper. Morison had a job to get sufficient power on his header from 15 yards out.
    • 7' Barron breaks into the box on the left. He has Harris and Morison to aim for but he's surrounded by two defenders and loses the ball.
    • 6' Barron is fouled on the left wing. Millwall elect to play the free-kick quickly before the cross finally come in for Morison... glanced wide of the far post.
    • 5' Harris releases Schofield wide on the right. The winger's cross is intercepted by Clarke.
    • 3' Millwall will be hoping to go one better than last season, when they lost to Scunthorpe in the play-off final, despite Gary Alexander scoring one of th best goals ever scored at Wembley. Look it up if you don't believe me.
    • 2' The corner is headed clear. There are still quite a few fans rushing to get into the ground!

    • - Remember, there is no away goals rule in the play-offs, so whoever wins this evening will go to Wembley. If we're level at the end of 90 minutes we'll have extra time, and if the two sides still can't be split, it's penalties!
