  9. Steve Morison was inches away from making it 3-0.

  10. Good morning.

    It was ultimately a disappointing day after such a strong performance for most of the game against Middlesbrough.

    Here are some snaps from Saturday courtesy of Millwall FC.

  11. Millwall have reportedly again bid for Barnsley striker Tom Bradshaw.

    Bradshaw played in Barnsley's 4-0 win over Oxford on Saturday, though he didn't score.

    The Lions have been after Bradshaw, 26, most of the summer.

    And they are now reportedly testing the Tykes' resolve again ahead Thursday's deadline for permanent signings.

  12. Steve Kavanagh has been on BBC Radio London and admitted it was "scary" how far Millwall were off requirements for the top flight when they had a survey from the Premier League.

    The Lions were in the hunt for the Championship play-offs until the second-last game of last season and the increased chances of an unlikely promotion meant they met representatives from the Premier League to discuss what surgery would be needed at The Den.

    It was revealed this summer that Millwall had contracted architects to draw up plans to expand The Den and commercial facilities. We could see what those plans look like later this year.

    Here was Kavanagh today:

    Last season when we got close to the play-offs we had a survey from the Premier League for facilities here. It was scary. It's nowhere near what you require in the Premier League.

  13. Millwall's opponents on Saturday, Middlesbrough, have sold centre-back Ben Gibson to Burnley for £15million. That matches the club record fee the Clarets paid to Leeds for former Lions striker Chris Wood last August.

    Aston Villa have signed Manchester United defender Axel Tuanzebe, 20, on a season-long loan.

    BBC Radio Bristol are reporting that Bristol City have accepted bids from Villa and Boro for 24-year-old left-back Joe Bryan.

    Birmingham want to sign Cardiff striker Omar Bogle on loan for the campaign, and the two clubs are in talks over the 25-year-old striker.

    Adam Armstrong, 21, has left Newcastle United after four previous loan spells. His last was at Blackburn, whom he helped to promotion from League One last season with nine goals in 21 games. The striker could prove a useful signing for Tony Mowbray after joining for an undisclosed fee on a four-year deal this season.

    But Sam Clucas isn't going anywhere for now. His proposed £8million move from Swansea to Burnley broke down after he couldn't agree personal terms.

    And...Millwall are back in for Tom Bradshaw, but Barnsley are being stubborn. The striker wants a move, he wants Champiosnhip football, and the Lions are still in the running to get their striker target.

  14. That's it from here.

    Join us for more tomorrow.
