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."

ou can't blame De Gea for wanting to leave, he has enough to do in front of goal as it is as well as taking on the role of Man Utd's version of Derek Acorah in trying to contact and organise a defence that isn't there.
