Capital One Cup 1st Round
6th August 2013
The Den

Only the second meetings between the sides, however the outcome was the same again, at least as far as the winning side went!

It was a lot closer than the previous FA Cup meeting back along, but Millwall again proved victorious over AFC Wimbledon in Tuesday nights Capital One Cup tie at the Den.

Wholesale changes weren’t going to happen with Millwall, but more than half a dozen were made with Jermain Easter, one of those that came in, denied a breakthrough by a good Ross Worner save.

James Henry missed a gilt edged chance for the hosts before Worner gifted them the opener shortly after the break. Fearful of handling outside the box the Wimbledon goalie released the ball allowed Andy Keogh (52) to roll the ball into the empty net, one-nil Millwall.

Atoning for this Worner denied Martyn Woolford but late on Woolford (76) fired home a second to double the lead.

Luke Moore (90) had come off the bench and his late chance gave Wimbledon hope, and had it not been for an injury-time Stephen Bywater save from Jack Midson the game would have gone to penalties having ended two-two.

As it was the Lions went through 2-1.
