Millwall booked their place in next season’s Championship after a late goal from Steve Morrison sealed a 1-0 win against Bradford.
However, a pitch invasion at the end of the game threatened to spoil the celebrations for Neil Harris’ side.
Bradford were the better side in the first period, but failed to make their dominance count.
After the break, the Lions improved, with Jed Wallace going close.
Then, the game heading towards extra-time, Morrison just about kept himself onside to score from close-range after a Lee Gregory to send Millwall back to the second-tier for the first time since 2014/15.
However, at the final whistle, a number of Millwall fans streamed onto the pitch, with a small section of them taunting Bradford’s players as well as confronting losing manager Stuart McCall.
Goal-hero Morrison was rather livid at the behaviour of some of the fans, saying:
I can’t focus right now. They have ruined it for me. Absolutely ruined it.
McCall was also understandably unimpressed by the post-match shenanigans, saying:
We’re absolutely distraught, we wanted to clap our own fans, the last thing we need is people running around us and giving us verbals.
I think it’s nonsense. Ten minutes later an army of stewards comes on when they should have been on straight after the final whistle and stood on the halfway line.
I don’t understand why people feel they need to come over to players, intimidate us and wind us up. I was close to clocking a couple.
Despite the predictable post-match nonsense, what a great day for Millwall! Although one wonders if their fans will ever learn.
