Tom Bradshaw scored the only goal of the game late on as Milwall produced one of the close football scores of the midweek action in the Championship. Milwall had requested for their game to be postponed but was denied by the EFL despite having just 15 senior players available. 15-year-old striker Zak Lovelace was named as part of the bench by Gary Rowlett.
Coventry’s Mark Robins: “It’s a nightmare, it’s not much fun at all at the moment. We’ve been suffering just like everybody else, I’ve had half a squad for 10 days. It’s difficult to plan, they’ve obviously got a cause because they’ve tried to get the game canceled because they’ve got some issues, but we’ve all got issues going on. It’s been off, it’s been on, yesterday Millwall said it was off, then the EFL said no it’s on. From that point on it’s been on but that’s the situation we’re dealing with. I’ve got to be honest because that level of performance was expected.”
Millwall’s Gary Rowett: “Incredible. All through it, the players wanted to play the game but we didn’t feel we reached the protocols of the EFL which was 14 fit players but a goalkeeper can count as an outfield player on the bench which seems a bit bizarre. We had two players on the bench that hadn’t changed but it’s times like that you’ve got to show a bit of spirit and the players showed incredible fight and spirit.”
