MILLWALL 1-2 SWANSEA
Tom Elliott headed against the bar just before the final whistle but it wasn't enough for Millwall to sneak a point against 10-man Swansea at the Den! Superb turnaround from Graham Potter's men and probably a well deserved win in the end.
Stay tuned for a full report, highlights and reaction!
90+4: OFF THE POST! That was almost four! Montero squares for Carroll after another slick counter attack but the midfielder curls onto the apex and the Lions escape!
90+3: Last-ditch defending here from Swansea in the final minutes of the game. Tom Elliott provides a huge aerial threat and he's sure to be the target each time here...
90+1: We'll have FIVE added minutes here at the Den...
90: SUB! Tom Elliott replaces Romeo as Millwall search for the elusive equaliser...
89: YELLOW! Jefferson Montero goes into the book for kicking the ball away as the game hots up in the final minutes. Don't go anywhere because this game isn't done just yet...
87: SUB! Tom Bradshaw comes on for his home debut in place of Meredith.
GOAL! MILLWALL 1-2 SWANSEA (McBurnie, 85)
Where on earth did that come from?! Swansea are in front for the first time and it's a wonderful counter-attacking move. Montero is the creator once more and he fires a low ball to the far post where Oli McBurnie is on hand to tap home! Unbelievable stuff.
MILLWALL 1-1 SWANSEA
83: OVER! Skalak is the latest Millwall player to spurn a great chance on the right...he screams for the ball but fails to register a shot on target as the ball ends up with the fans.

The equaliser is coming, but here's how Murray Wallace opened the scoing...
GOAL! MILLWALL 1-1 SWANSEA (Naughton, 76)
Swansea's spirits were not dampened by Baker-Richardson's dismissal and they've got themselves back into this game with a classy goal scored by Kyle Naughton.
Jefferson Montero bamboozles Romeo and squares the ball for Naughton, who waits his turn before firing a tidy low effort beyond Ben Amos!
MILLWALL 1-0 SWANSEA
75: Tom Carroll has time and space on the right to deliver a cross into Oli McBurnie, but his delivery is poor and Millwall have a throw on the opposite flank.
71: SO CLOSE! Searching ball into the Swansea area from the right from Skalak but Tunnicliffe's outstretched leg isn't close enough to push it past Mulder!
69: Weak pass out from Van der Hoorn allows Millwall to pick up the ball simply, but moments later Shaun Williams is fouled and Swansea will have another free-kick to defend. Skalak's floated ball is headed away, though.
66: SUB! Confirmation of that change as Montero replaces the injured Olsson.
65: As if this evening couldn't get any worse for Swansea, Olsson is down on the pitch looking like he won't be fit to continue here.
GOAL! MILLWALL 1-0 SWANSEA (M Wallace, 62)
We have a breakthrough at the Den! Shaun Williams delivers a corner to the far post, Jake Cooper wins the ball ahead of Van der Hoorn and flicks onto Murray Wallace who diverts the ball beyond Mulder!
MILLWALL 0-0 SWANSEA
60: OVER! The Lions get a little lucky to find an opening with Gregory and Morison combining to allow Jed Wallace to try his luck, but he fires over the bar from a good position.
61: SUB! Aiden O'Brien is replaced by Jiri Skalak for the hosts, while Dan James is replaced by Tom Carroll for Swansea.
55: Millwall are being held up in their advances due to a slight lack of urgency, giving the visitors plenty of time to regroup and form a formidable shape at the back.
56: OVER! Huge waste of a chance from O'Brien, who blazes well over the bar with Gregory, Morison and Tunnicliffe all within a few yards of him.
53: YELLOW! Jed Wallace is given a yellow card after a lunge on Matt Grimes. He's taken a risk there, but that wasn't quite in the same bracket as Baker-Richardson's...
50: FREE-KICK! Clever stuff from Olsson to draw a foul from Romeo and the Swans will have a free-kick a few yards outside the left hand side of the area.
CHANCE! Olsson delivers a ball from the opposite side of the area and Van der Hoorn is just inches away from putting the vital touch on the pass to turn it home! Not a millions miles away, that...
48: WIDE! Wallace's cross is into a dangerous area but no Millwall players can get their head on the ball as the possession is turned over once more.
47: Millwall have scored just one second half goal so far this season but will they be able to buck that trend this evening?
Referee Graham Scott blows his whistle and gets this one back underway! Who'll come out on top?
A scrappy first half comes to a close at the Den and 10-man Swansea are succeeding in frustrating the Lions. They lost Courtney Baker-Richardson inside five minutes but haven't let his dismissal dampen their spirits.
Stay tuned for the second half in less than 15 minutes' time!
45+5: The frustration is building in the stands as the Lions continue to be frustrated by Swansea's defence...
45+3: The Lions build from the back as they plot a route to goal. It's a patient approach, but as Romeo's cross enters the area, no one can decide who is going to make the ball their own; Swansea react and clear the imminent danger.
45: Slow end at the conclusion of a scrappy first half at the Den...it seems as though we'll have a significant number of added minutes, though.
45+1: There it is - we'll have FIVE added minutes.
42: This has been a half devoid of chances for both sides and a thorough improvement in attack is required after the break to force an opener. A prime example there as Morison's header into space inside the area is lumped clear by Celina.
39: The academy graduate is back on the pitch but moving slightly gingerly so we'll monitor his status as the half wears on. Not an ideal situation for an already stretched squad to be in.
37: Joe Rodon is on the deck now...surely not another injury for Graham Potter to have to deal with? Replays suggest he's jarred his ankle after an aerial challenge with Steve Morison.
35: SUB! And there's confirmation of Naughton's introduction at the expense of Fer. Another huge blow for Graham Potter's men. It looks as though Roberts will be moving forward, with Naughton slotting in at right-back but we'll see when everything settles down in a moment or two.
34: Leroy Fer is down again here and the Swansea skipper has taken his armband off, signalling that he'll be coming off here. Kyle Naughton is being readied as his replacement.
WATCH: BAKER-RICHARDSON'S DEBUT RED
Not the ideal start for Swansea's Courtney Baker-Richardson...
31: WIDE! Celina overhits his pass to the far post and Ben Amos will have a goal-kick to take. Meanwhile, Leroy Fer is on the deck clutching his leg, but it looks as though he'll be good to continue.
Moments later there's a heart-in-mouth moment for Mulder as Gregory flicks Morison's header goalwards, but the cheeky effort drops wide of the mark.
26: Now Swansea have retreated as the Millwall threat builds. Morison proceeds to win a corner and Swansea's zonal marking tactic pays off as they clear with ease and break forward with pace...
27: It's a rapid break and James races forward on the right hand side, but Romeo displays his raw pace to come across and force the winger off balance, so much so that he sticks his effort wide of the mark.
24: CHANCE! This was the chance for the Lions! Steve Morison knocks the ball on to Jed Wallace and Millwall's number seven could quite easily stroke this home! He goes for a Hollywood finish, though, and skews his effort wide instead!
23: Jed Wallace has time to press forward but opts to swing in a cross on the left, but it's too close to Mulder and the stopper jumps to catch.
22: Brilliant block from Van der Hoorn as Lee Gregory pulls the trigger on the left of the Swansea box. The Lions are enjoying a dominant spell on the edge of the box, but they can't create anything of note as the visitors successfully hold them at arms length.
20: Graham Potter's men are keen to attack, in spite of their one-man disadvantage and are remaining a threat here at the Den. We've had very few sights at goal from both sides but you'd say the Swans might have slightly edged it so far.
17: Good defending from Romeo forces a corner for the visitors, but the first is deflected into the side netting. Leroy Fer gets a weak header on the second delivery and it's a simple catch for Ben Amos.
14: WIDE! Poor execution from Lee Gregory as he tries his luck from an almost impossible angle, with Meredith and O'Brien in the centre of the area waiting for his cross.
12: SAVE! Williams' delivery is straight down the middle and low enough for Mulder to claim with ease. Another let-off for the Swans.
11: FREE-KICK! Olsson and McBurnie sandwich Morison and the frontman goes down, winning a free-kick on the edge of the area. McBurnie was lucky to escape a booking there, following a stray arm to his opponent's face.
9: We've had a lengthy stop to check on James Meredith but we're now back underway at the Den. Time for Swansea's plan B...
5: RED CARD! Courtney Baker-Richardson is sent off inside five minutes of his Championship debut and his inexperience is clear, there! The forward miscontrols his first touch of the game and lunges in to try and rectify the error, catching Meredith's lower leg in the process.
There's absolutely no doubt that's the correct decision; there was no malice by the looks of things but referee Graham Scott was left with no choice.
4: CLOSE! Warning signs for Swansea there as a Millwall free-kick is headed on by Jake Cooper, just out of the reach of Gregory, who thrives on balls like that.
