Howard Colyer

Millwall 1 Leicester City 3

In injury time

a winger flying breaks clear,

swift and sure – the end.

Millwall 1 Ipswich Town 0

They press hard, attack,

one last try, but Malone clears –

ball sails to the roof.

Millwall 1 Sheffield Wednesday 1

Vigorous football,

twenty-two player punch-up,

two red cards, point each.

Millwall 0 Reading 3

Goalkeeper’s fumble,

Bywater can’t hold the ball,

then the rest follows.

Millwall 1 Bolton Wanderers 1

Free kick in the wind,

hits the right post, then the left,

bounces out – we breathe.

Millwall 0 Brighton & Hove Albion 1

Dodgy penalty,

home defeat; but cherry trees

blossom, Hunsdon Road.

Millwall 0 Charlton Athletic 0

To avoid defeat

that was vital and it showed;

walking home full moon.
