Shittu Goal and Own Goal in Millwall Defeat

Millwall’s Danny Shittu scored at either end as Brentford edged a five-goal contest at the New Den on Saturday.

Andrey Grey scored twice either side of the interval to place the visitors in a comfortable lead, but Millwall fought back with two goals in two minutes from Shittu and Alan Dunne just before the hour.

Shittu’s headed home Lee Martin’s looping cross from inside the box to halve Millwall’s deficit before ‘The Lions’s’ captain Dunne leveled just a minute later.
