Here's how they stack up following the full-time whistle...
MILLWALL 1-1 CARDIFF
Well, despite that late drama, it finishes all square at the Den. Both sides had their moments in charge of the game, but ultimately neither could force a winner in a real battle in the capital.
Stay tuned for a full report, highlights and reaction.
90+3: HUGE CHANCE! Paterson gambles on a pass forward and tries his luck with a left-footed effort, but Meredith manages to force him to change his direction to ensure his shot falls the wrong side of the post!
WATCH: DISALLOWED GOAL
Was Bamba's 'goal' right to be ruled out?
90+1: FOUR additional minutes to be played here...
90: SUB! And here he comes! Tim Cahill is back for his second debut and replaces Lee Gregory. Can he conjure up some late, late magic?!
90: Things are hotting up on a cold night down at the Den! Halford tries a long throw, but Archer rises high to claim. Whispers that Cahill is coming on for Millwall...
87: OFF THE LINE! Cardiff are on the front foot now and George Saville has just saved the day but smacking Paterson's header clear off the line!
83: GOAL DISALLOWED! Morison goes to bring a high ball into his possession but takes Bennett with him. Play continues and Bamba hits a lovely finish after the ball bobbles in the area, but Keith Stroud blows the whistle and pulls it back for the foul!!
Hoilett stands over the free-kick but it's a poor delivery on the whole and the chance is blocked! Huge talking point, that.
82: Handbags between Damour and Meredith, while there's yet another change as Madine is replaced by Zohore for the final minutes of the game. Cardiff love some late drama and there's real potential for some here...
78: SUBS! We have another break in play and we have some more changes for you. Loic Damour is also now on for Cardiff as he replaces Mendez-Laing, while Onyedinma also replaces Marshall for the hosts.
77: SUB! Marko Grujic is off for the remainder of the game, to be replaced by Greg Halford.
76: We are hearing murmurs that Neil Harris might about to switch things up, though it isn't going to be Tim Cahill's moment just yet.
75: Gary Madine has been in the wars this evening and he's on the deck again after a little nudge in the back by Hutchinson. Eyes always on the ball, though.
73: MISS! Wallace has been in excellent form this evening, but he's just scuppered a decent chance after a poor touch from Marshall's pass down the left. Moments later they win a corner, though it comes to nothing.
71: YELLOW! Cooper goes into Keith Stroud's notebook after a push on Paterson. Compared to some of the bone-crunching tackles we've seen this evening, there's not much in that one at all.
70: Cardiff skipper Morrison sees two long throws come to nothing, before Cardiff are flagged offside. It doesn't look like their evening at the moment...
66: SAVE! Remarkable save from Etheridge to deny Wallace after a mix-up involving Joe Ralls 18 yards out, there! That could be priceless for Cardiff come the end of the game...
65: Cardiff have a rare attack thwarted, but it's not long before the Lions are charging forward once again. The only thing for them, at the moment, is that Cardiff seem to be becoming savvier to their opponents threats.
62: SHOT! Gregory tries a speculative shot after Marshall's layoff as he sees the crowded Cardiff box, but his effort is swiftly charged down.
60: So we've passed the hour mark at the Den and the result still hangs in the balance. Can Millwall clinch this or will Cardiff triumph?
58: Delicious ball forward from Morison to Wallace on the left and the latter wins a corner after his early cross is blocked.
59: OVER! Wallace finds space and beats the offside trap, before crossing for Gregory. He can't divert his header goalwards as he's underneath the ball, but it's another good effort from the hosts, nonetheless.
55: A long throw from Paterson is initially headed away, before Romeo gets rid of the danger once more as he sweeps the Scot's second delivery out of the final third. Meanwhile, the Lions have identified Bamba as a potential weak link and he certainly looks unconfident...
52: MISCUE! Hoilett passes short to Ralls on the edge of the area, but the midfield man gets it all wrong and takes an air swipe before the ball is cleared.
53: WIDE! Paterson lays the ball off the Madine after Hoilett's cross, but the frontman can only direct his fizzing effort inches wide of the mark.
50: Gregory chases a ball forward from midfield, but Bamba hoofs the ball away and makes no mistake.
51: OOOOHH! Gregory and Morison link up once more and the former crosses low for Wallace, but a last ditch challenge from Bennett takes it away from his feet!
48: Junior Hoilett almost gets the better of Romeo again on an early foray forward, but though the defender loses his footing, he manages to regain composure and prevent the danger advancing any further. All the while staying away from a second booking of the evening...
SECOND HALF! MILLWALL 1-1 CARDIFF
We're back underway at the Den - big second half still to come!
HT: MILLWALL 1-1 CARDIFF
It wasn't billed as a classic, but this has been a very entertaining first half at the Den. Junior Hoilett's early effort gave the Bluebirds the lead, but this only spurred Millwall - who grew in confidence as the half wore on - on and five minutes before the break, Lee Gregory gave them a deserved equaliser.
Second half still to come so stay tuned!
WATCH: GREGORY'S EQUALISER
45+1: CORNER! Gregory hits a snap-shot on the turn and Cardiff divert it behind for a corner...
We're into two additional minutes here at the Den...
45: Cardiff seem to have woken up a little and are trying to get back on the front foot once more. Bamba outmuscles Gregory and tries a throughball, but whoever of his team-mates he thought was on the overlap wasn't there to pick up the pass!
GOAL! MILLWALL 1-1 CARDIFF (Gregory, 40)
You can't say it hasn't been coming...
Excellent running from Steve Morison to open up the space for his team-mate and Lee Gregory takes advantage and pulls Millwall level and he picks up Wallace's cross from the right before hitting a lovely effort past Etheridge! Game on!
MILLWALL 0-1 CARDIFF
39: WIDE! Gregory picks up a pass from Morison, works his way into a more central position and drives at goal, but his effort drifts just wide of the target. They're getting closer, for sure.
36: Millwall's confidence is showing through now and they certainly look the more likely to score the game's second goal.
35: FREE-KICK! Wallace rushes forward and chases a pass down the left but Grujic is a little over-zealous with his shoulder-barge and the Lions have a free-kick in a promising position...but the delivery isn't amazing and Morrison heads into the ground and away.
32: Hoilett attacks on the right but Millwall bring plenty of bodies back to cope with the increased pressure. Marshall goes down under a push from Paterson and Archer lumps the free-kick upfield.
33: OUCH! Moments later, Cooper and Madine go head-to-head in an aerial challenge. The latter comes off worse and receives some medical attention, but he looks good to continue.
30: SHOT! Morison robs Bennett close to the edge of the area and tries to execute a carbon copy of Hoilett's goal, but his shot with the outside of his boot is comfortably claimed by Etheridge.
Millwall are beginning to knock on the door now...
27: CORNER! The Lions corner from the left is headed goalwards by Hutchinson, but swiftly lumped away by the Cardiff defence.
WATCH: HOILETT'S OPENER
Re-live Junior Hoilett's early opener by clicking the video below...
24: MISS! Millwall win a free-kick a couple of yards outside the area, but Marshall curls it harmlessly over the bar.
23: OFF THE BAR! What a chance for Millwall to level things up! Marshall delivers a lovely looping cross from the left to the far post, Morison brings it under his control before volleying at goal, but he's denied by the framework!
21: Hutchinson hits a ball forward in search of Gregory, but Morrison overpowers the forward and wins the ball back for Cardiff. It's proving a difficult backline for the Lions to break down already.
18: OVER! Ralls swings in another corner and Cooper manages to head behind from within a crowd of players. Keith Stroud is aware of the tussling in the area and enters to sort things out before the corner is taken.
Archer tips over the corner and the Bluebirds will have another, but this time Mendez-Laing blasts over from just outside the area.
17: CLOSE! Hoilett releases Bennett down the left flank and he delivers a lovely ball towards Mendez-Laing in the area! Meredith turns the ball behind with some excellent awareness at the far post.
15: FREE-KICK! Hoilett concedes a free-kick on the left of the area and Jed Wallace stands over it. It's a dangerous position, but Wallace steers the free-kick well over the bar and off target. That's a waste and he knows it.
14: There is a typically hostile atmosphere at the Den already and that could work wonders for the hosts at some point this evening.
12: SAVE! Cardiff break again down the right and Hoilett tries his luck from around 25 yards, but Jordan Archer is equal to it. Millwall are playing an incredibly high line at the moment, despite the one-goal deficit...
10: Scrappy defending from the hosts as Cardiff press on the edge of the area, but their unorthodox techniques are working at the moment as the Bluebirds are kept at bay...
