Edwards Nets Winner for Millwall
Tuesday, 8th Apr 2014 23:44
On-loan skipper Carlos Edwards lashed home the winning goal as Millwall beat play-off challengers Wigan 1-0 away.
The 35-year-old Trinidad and Tobago international, who was playing at right-back, was on target in the 22nd minute.
According to the official Millwall site: “[Edwards] picked up the ball in his own half and set off on a mazy run right through the heart of a home defence that stepped away from making any real challenge.
“As he closed down on goal, Edwards spotted [Scott] Carson off his line and lofted the ball over the advancing keeper, his effort taking a little deflection en route to the back of the net.”
Edwards, who is with Millwall until May 3rd, was subbed at half-time with a minor groin problem.
Elsewhere, Elliott Hewitt played the full 90 minutes as Gillingham lost 2-0 at Peterborough, while Jack Marriott was subbed on 71 as Woking drew 2-2 at Grimsby in a bizarre Skrill Premier game in which the first goal came on 84 and the other three in stoppage time.

Demolition Man by tractorboykent
Paul Cook isn’t a man to mince words. Even though we are all sick of the continuing spiral of underachievement at Town, it was nevertheless still a bit of a shock to hear him lay into the 18 that capitulated to Wimbledon in what he described before kick-off as a season defining match.
Here We Go by tractorboykent
For a club recently described as Britain’s unhappiest, it may seem odd that Town fans are suddenly awash with optimism now that the deal is done.
One of the Strongest Squads? by NormEmerges
I keep hearing that ITFC has one of the strongest squads in League One. It’s certainly true that we have one of the biggest squads, but strongest? I would assume ‘strongest’ to mean ‘includes higher quality players for this league’. What do the facts tell us?
Tractor Boy on a Mission by wadey
As some of you may be aware, we lost our little boy Tyler on 1st April 2012, aged just 15 months old. There was no cause declared and he just passed away in his sleep. Since then, I’ve tried to raise as much money for charity in memory of him.
Damned Lies and Football Statistics? by bluesman
Football is possibly the most observed sport of all time, and there is plenty of statistical information available in the public domain to make some informed observations about clubs and managers, and their performance over the years.
