Millwall striker Lewis Grabban put the Lions' poor start to the season well and truly behind them as they secured back-to-back home victories with a 2-0 win against Hartlepool.
Kenny Jackett's men had just two points prior to last week's win against Huddersfield but never looked like losing after Grabban lashed home in the third minute.
And the former Crystal Palace front-man soon turned provider for Gary Alexander just before the break as Millwall jumped from 13th to seventh.
The hosts flew out of the block and took the lead before Pools had a chance to settle down - Neil Harris feeding Grabban who slotted home off the upright.
And the Lions went two up in the 41st minute when Alexander combined with Grabban and nodded home following Lee-Barrett's save from the 20-year-old.
Hartlepool striker James Brown nearly pulled the visitors within touching distance but was denied by Lions keeper David Forde as Millwall put Hartlepool to the sword.
