Leeds slip to first defeat
The New Den
Leeds made two changes to the side that beat Norwich on Monday, Patrick Kisnorbo returned after illness and replaced Jason Crowe in defence whilst Casper Ankergren who came on inside the opening twenty minutes replaced Shane Higgs.
Millwall took the lead inside five minutes when Neil Harris headed in from a free kick.
Leeds were soon on level terms when Patrick Kisnorbo was quickest to react at a corner and smashed the ball into the net.
Sam Vokes almost gave Leeds the lead just past the half hour but Forde in the Millwall goal blocked his shot.
Millwall were having plenty of possession and chances without threatening Ankergren in the Leeds goal.
In a hard fought first half the sides went in level at 1-1.
Leeds had an early chance in the second half when Johnson`s free kick went just wide of the post.
Millwall had a great chance to take the lead but Craig missed the target with a free header from inside the six yard box.
Leeds made their first change of the afternoon when Tresor Kandol replaced Sam Vokes with twenty minutes remaining.
Millwall went back in front inside the final ten minutes when substitute Graham Alexander headed past Ankergren.
Kandol almost equalised for Leeds when his effort came back off the bar in the final minute.
The Kandol effort was Leeds final real chance and Millwall ran down the clock to send Leeds to their first defeat of the season.
