Millwall players celebrate Shaun Batt's winner against Watford

There was no FA Cup hangover as substitute Shaun Batt struck the winner six minutes from time to give the Lions a first home league win since New Year's Day and move them up to 16th in the table, although still only four points above the drop zone.

"It was a huge relief, especially after the other results tonight," said Gallen.

"In the second half I thought the whole club seemed to galvanise.

"We did not have too many chances but the one clear-cut one we did get, Shaun put in.

"I haven't got a clue what the safety figure is, I've never seen anything like the division this year.

"But a win against Huddersfield on Saturday would take us away from them and up to 58 points, and then we might be all right."

enteke is an absolute steal for £32.5m, he would get into any team in the world (except Barcelona) at the moment. I've seen many very good strikers in my 30+ years as a Villa fan. This guy is the best without question.
