Thanks to Chris for his match report....

U23 Professional Development League
Millwall 0 QPR 3

Best all round performance by our reserves this season in what turned out to be an ill tempered affair officiated by an idiot. Faisal Bettache scored on 7 minutes following great work by Dalling and Bansal-McNulty down the right.

Bettache took aim from 20 yards and found the bottom corner. First half we were the better team and should have scored more with Lewis Walker having a 25 yarder brilliantly saved and then a point blank header was somehow saved as well. But Walker scored on 45 with a penalty following a trip on Domi.

The game was getting a bit naughty with some ridiculous challenges going in. The referee was allowing it to happen though. Joe Gubbins was passing out from the back when 3 seconds after a Millwall player went sliding in and clattered him. Yellow card all day long but not if your name is M.Ryan it seems.

Two minutes later the same player tussled with Dalling after another late challenge. The ref decides to book BOTH players. HT 0-2.

Second half we were the better team for first 15 but couldn't add to the score. Still there were naughty challenges going in. Then about 70 minutes Bansal-McNulty was fouled 30 yards out and while he was on the floor a Millwall player was literally sitting on him. Amrit then pushed him away and said 'what you pinching me for?'. It wasn't a nice place to be pinched either. Amrit was yellow carded, Millwall player let off.

As we were waiting for the ref to sort out the defensive wall Lewis Walker accused a Millwall defender of racially abusing him. He was visibly upset and was remonstrating with the player . This went on for nearly 5 minutes as the ref spoke to Paul Hall and then all QPR players.

For the last 20 Millwall put us under a lot of pressure but Brzozowski made 2 good saves and a brilliant point blank save from a header. On 87 minutes our best move of the game saw Shodipo finish a a 5 pass attack and smashed home from 12 yards.

There was still time for another naughty challenge. The ball went out for a Millwall corner and as it did a Millwall player decided to smash into Domi who didn't even have the ball! Domi had been booked a minute before for pulling the same players shirt and got yellow carded. The most blatant red card you will ever see. Referee lectured the player and gave a yellow card instead.

As a result of the 5 minute stoppage for the racism allegation, the referee added just over 4 minutes extra. Totally useless performance from the official but an excellent from the under 23s in an intimidating game.

Team 1. Brzozowski. 2. Williams-Lowe 3. Domi 4. Bettache 5. Gubbins 6. Masterson 7. Dalling 8.Wells 9. Walker 10. Bansal-McNulty 11. Shodipo
