Football: Millwall add to Fulham misery

Published on Aug 17, 2014 7:18 AM

LONDON (AFP) - Fulham's dismal start to life outside the Premier League shows no signs of improving as Millwall earned a 1-0 win at Craven Cottage on Saturday.

Felix Magath's team are playing in the second tier for the first time in 13 years and so far they have found the Championship a distinctly unfriendly environment.

Magath complained about Ipswich's tough tackling when Fulham crashed to a 2-1 defeat on the opening weekend of the season, to which Town boss Mick McCarthy replied "welcome to the Championship".

Millwall had only avoided relegation to League One on the final day of last season, but they have made a bright start to the new campaign, beating Leeds 2-0 last weekend, and they maintained their 100 percent record when winger Martyn Woolford side-footed home in the 12th minute.
