Ben Thompson double at Birmingham gives Millwall vital win in fight against relegation

Millwall took the lead in the 13th minute when Thompson converted a cross from Lee Gregory following a swift counter attack.

Ironically, the goal was celebrated in a similar position to where Grealish was attacked on Sunday, and was greeted by Birmingham fans out of their seats angrily shaking their fists at the scorer.

It got worse for the home side when Thompson doubled Millwall’s lead in the 32nd minute. The midfielder ran in unchallenged, cutting in from the right, before drilling his shot under Lee Camp.
