The Lions extended their unbeaten run to 12 matches with a 1-0 victory at Wolves on Tuesday as Wood, who has seven goals in his last eight outings, set up Andy Keogh for the winner against his former club.

While Kenny Jackett's side may be the division's surprise package, Mowbray knows first hand the threat 20-year-old Wood poses having worked with him at West Brom.

Mowbray said: "I think Millwall are the team that are amazing us all at the moment - they're on a fabulous run.

"With total respect, they're not a team with huge resources and yet they're obviously doing something right.

"Young Chris Wood, who I knew from West Brom when we took him from New Zealand as a young boy, is showing what a fabulous prospect he is and scoring goals for them."

heyremind me of Utd's treble winning side. Swashbuckling and risk prone. We ha Jaap Stam to paper over the cracks at the back though. Not sure they have their Jaap yet.

he solution is to not feel sorry for any of Jabba, Gold or Sullivan. They're all deeply unpleasant and all deserve each other. If only West Ham would sign Barton and Suarez then no one would ever need to despise any other club.
