Full match report to follow.


So in the end a draw that doesn't really suit either club, and the home fans will be left frustrated after Yeovil yet again drop points from a winning position. The performance they put in really deserved 3 points against, what was in all truth, a disappointing Millwall side.


A corner in the final seconds creates a chance to win it for Millwall, but Danny Shittu heads narrowly over the bar.


Joe Ralls then 'takes one for the team' as he rather cynically fells Feeney.


Shaun Williams is booked for a trip on Luke Ayling.


Attendance is 4463


4 minutes added.


First booking of the evening as Fredricks skips past some dubious defending before going to ground very softly in the box, which the referee deems as simulation.


Feeney dances around the on rushing Stech but runs out of room and can't get his shot away.


And Morgan is immediately involved as he rides a weak challenge, then flashes a left foot shot just wide of Forde's goal.


Final sub for Yeovil as Adam Morgan replaces Tom Lawrence.


Woolford then sees a deflected effort fly narrowly wide of the right hand upright.


Good save from Forde as Lundstram finds Lawrence just outside the box whose powerful strike is turned away by the Millwall 'keeper.


It's all level as Malone swings in a great cross to the far post which Steve Morison meets with an downward header into the back of the net, 1-1.


Martyn Woolford is teed up outside of the box, and his powerful strike is palmed away by Stech.


It's then quickly followed by their final substitution as Jermaine Easter replaces DJ Campbell.


Second change for Millwall as Richard Chaplow is replaced by Alan Dunne.


And on the balance of play, that's no less than Yeovil deserve.


A fine run from Tom Lawrence makes fifty yards, he then slips in James Hayter down the right who chips for Joe Ralls at the far post to volley into the bottom left corner of the net! 1-0!


Liam Feeney's first contribution is to fire a shot in, but it is comfortable for Stech.


Miller has the ball in the net, but the referee had blown for a foul on Malone.


Liam Feeney take to the field in place of Simeon Jackson in Millwall's first change.


Second sub for the home side as James Hayter replaces Kieffer Moore in attack.


Millwall starting to build a head of steam as they fire a few crosses in although have yet to really stretch Stech.


Joe Ralls replaces Joel Grant for the home side in the first change.


First chance of the second half as Ryan Fredricks lines a shot up from the edge of the box, but it lacks power and is easily collected by Marek Stech.


The away team are belatedly back out, and we're underway. Yeovil will attack the home terrace this half.


No sign of the Millwall team as yet though...


The players are on their way back out, no doubt Johnson will want more of the same from the home side in the second half.


Elsewhere, fellow relegation rivals Bolton Wanderers are currently drawing 0-0 with Burnley.


A bit of half-time entertainment, as the Football League's first girl band perform on the turf.


Goalless at the break, but Yeovil had much the better of that opening 45.


But Millwall have a late chance to take a lead into the break as a Steve Morison flick on finds McDonald who blazes his shot wide from a tight angle inside the box.


Yeovil very much on the front foot here as we approach half time.


Great chance for 1-0 as neat build up on left ends with John Lundstram swinging in a deep cross, which Miller forces towards goal from 6 yards, only to be denied by Forde.


Kieffer Moore wins a free kick in a good position, and McAllister's delivery is headed up more than anything by Moore and Forde comfortably claims.


Joel Grant cuts inside after a fine run down the wing, but his shot is well saved by Forde.


A chance for the visitors, as Martyn Woolford picks out Scott Malone inside the box, but his volley drifts wide.


Miller forces his way through with a poweful run, and just as he pulls the trigger a defender gets a great block in. From the resulting corner it eventually drops to Luke Ayling who forces a fingertip save from David Forde in the Millwall goal.


Ishmael Miller wins a free kick 30 yards out and from Jamie McAllister's delivery Byron Webster heads over the bar.


End to end now, as Scott McDonald looks to be through on goal, only to be denied by a fantastic sliding tackle from Shane Duffy.


Luke Ayling floats a free kick into the area, and it falls to Ishmael Miller who strikes the bar from the edge of the area.


Millwall then pounce on some defensive uncertainty, and Dj Campbell hits a snapshot just wide.


A powerful break by Joe Edwards forces a free kick 20 yards from goal, but it comes to nothing.


Both sides have forced a corner, but very little between them in the opening few minutes.


A couple of early free kicks for Yeovil as they are quick out of the blocks.


Andy Woolmer blows his whistle and Millwall kick off, shooting towards the home terrace in this first half.


Although the away fans are having to cope with some heavy sleet...


Almost kick off, and I'm pleased to say there is very little wind!


Yeovil's defeat at the hands of Leeds was their 9th at home this season, so both teams will see tonight as the ideal opportunity to turn their fortunes around.


As for the visitors, Saturday's defeat to high flying Burnley leaves them in 21st position, and with only 1 point gained from their last 6 away trips.


With that day's goalscorer departed to tonight's opponents, the home side will be hoping that Ishmael Miller makes amends for Saturday's penalty miss.


Yeovil will of course have fond memories of playing Millwall, after picking up a 1-0 win at the New Den in their first ever Championship game.


And after all the talk this week, there is not a place in the Millwall 18 for recent Yeovil hero Ed Upson.


Safe to say neither side is playing for the draw...


Millwall team: Forde, Shittu (c), Morison, Woolford, Fredricks, Williams, Chaplow, Jackson, Campbell, McDonald, Malone.

Subs: Dunne, Robinson, Feeney, Easter, Martin, Abdou, Bywater.


Yeovil team: Stech, Ayling, McAllister (c), Edwards, Webster, Lawrence, Moore, Duffy, Grant, Miller, Lundstram.

Subs: Dunn, Dawson, Hayter, Foley, Lanzoni, Ralls, Morgan.


A wind assisted defeat on saturday left Gary Johnson's men 6 points adrift of Millwall in the final safe postion, but here they have an instant chance for redemption, and a chance to move within touching distance of 21st.


It's a cold evening here at Huish Park as Yeovil and Millwall lock horns in a relegation 6 pointer.
