Past meetings | Millwall v Swansea City
As the Swans get set for a trip to Millwall tomorrow evening (5pm), we take a look back at some previous encounters between the clubs.
We recall previous meetings in the Championship, League One and the League Cup.
Millwall 1 Swansea City 2
Championship – September 1, 2018
The Swans earned a memorable comeback victory at Millwall despite playing 85 minutes with 10 men.
Courtney Baker-Richardson saw red just five minutes into his Football League debut after he was sent off for a challenge on James Meredith.
It took until the 62nd minute for the Lions to take the lead, with Murray Wallace nodding home Jake Cooper’s knockdown from a corner.
Sub Kyle Naughton looked to have earned the Swans a share of the spoils as he stunned the home crowd with a low shot in the 76th minute.
Incredibly, Oli McBurnie then popped up in the 85th minute to earn the Swans an unlikely victory.
Millwall 0 Swansea City 2
Championship – April 30, 2011
The Swans visited Millwall in their penultimate regular-season game of 2010-11.
Brendan Rodgers’s team had already secured their place in the Championship play-offs, but they kept their slim automatic promotion hopes alive thanks to a 2-0 success at the New Den.
The Swans’ first win in 14 visits to Millwall – who were managed at the time by Kenny Jackett – came courtesy of goals either side of half-time from Darren Pratley and Stephen Dobbie.
They would eventually miss out on the top two – but went on to be promoted via the play-offs, of course.
Millwall 2 Swansea City 2
League One – November 6, 2007
Roberto Martinez’s Swans extended their unbeaten run to eight games thanks to an influential performance from Paul Anderson.
The on-loan Liverpool winger created the opening goal when his shot was parried into the path of Jason Scotland and the striker steered home.
Millwall, under the guidance of new boss Jackett, responded through Zak Whitbread, and they went ahead 20 minutes from time thanks to Alan Dunne’s penalty.
But Anderson had the final word, combining with Scotland to make it 2-2 on 78 minutes.
Millwall 1 Swansea City 1
League Cup – August 24, 1999
John Hollins’ Swans side had claimed their first victory of the new season in the first leg of this League Cup tie courtesy of goals from Steve Watkin and Jason Price.
They defended their 2-0 advantage in the second leg in South London despite an early goal for the Lions from Richard Sadlier.
Tony Bird netted a late penalty to ensure the Swans got the better of opponents who were from the division above, but Hollins’ men were knocked out in the second round by Derby County.
There was joy to come in the league, though, as they won the Third Division title the following spring.
