Millwall beats Stoke City 2-1 on Monday at Bet365 Stadium. Both sides arrived on the back of wins.

As the table looks today, Stoke are currently 11th with 55 points from 40 matches, while Millwall sit in 9th, with 58 points from 40.

Millwall started strong and were rewarded for their efforts, thanks to a goal from Murray Wallace in the 36th minute. However, their celebrations were kept brief, as Jacob Brown equalised for Stoke just before half-time, to take a 1-1 lead into half time.

Millwall continued to pile on the pressure in the second and were rewarded, with Mason Bennett giving The Lions the lead at the 71 minute mark. The game ended with a 2-1 victory for the visitors.

Stoke brought on Rabbi Matondo, James McClean and Sam Vokes for Danny Batth, Jordan Thompson and Tommy Smith. Millwall brought on Maikel Kieftenbeld, Jon Dadi Bödvarsson and Tom Bradshaw, to replace Kenneth Zohore, Mason Bennett and Jed Wallace.
