Following this afternoon's set of Sky Bet League 1 fixtures, the final game of the day, which saw Play-Off chasing Millwall play host to league leaders Burton Albion, kicked off at 7:45pm.

Despite heading into the game as the overwhelming favourites, it was Nigel Clough's Burton who fell behind as Aiden O'Brien slotted home twelve minutes into the first half.

The Lions would double their lead minutes later as Lee Gregory took advantage of some sloppy defending to burst through Brewers backline and hit the back of the net.

This was the end of the scoring as Burton failed to further extend their lead over second-placed Wigan Athletic, while Millwall moved to within nine points of the automatic promotion places.
