Lee Gregory nets twice as Millwall beat Swindon

Lee Gregory's double eased Millwall to a 2-0 win over Swindon at The Den.

The striker took his tally to the season to nine with a goal in each half as the Robins went a fourth game without a win.

Gregory looked dangerous from the off and it took him just 10 minutes to open the scoring, bamboozling Swindon defenders before firing home from a tough angle.

That woke Swindon up but Sean Murray's shot fell easily into Jordan Archer's arms, before Michael Doughty blazed over the Millwall bar.

At the other end Gregory fizzed a shot just over the bar before Shaun Hutchinson's goal-bound header from a corner was hooked clear by Robins defender Raphael Rossi Branco after half an hour.

Millwall continued to press but could not add a second before half-time, and should have been made to pay on the hour mark only for Swindon's Luke Norris to flash an effort wide with just Archer to beat.

And Gregory showed Norris how it was done five minutes later, volleying home Steve Morison's chip from close range.

The closest Swindon came to a goal was with two minutes remaining when Branco headed a Darnell Furlong cross over the bar.
