Millwall still haven’t hit full gear, as they failed to win their third game in a row since football returned.

There were signs of improvement but there is work still to be done for Rowett if his side are to challenge for the play-off spot.

Here are five things we learned for the draw:

Choices, Choices

Millwall have used the fewest players in the Championship this season and operate with the smallest squad. That tight knit group is usually a big positive, generating togetherness and team spirit.

However, in lockdown football, it appears that Millwall could do with some more options.

Jon Dadi Bodvarsson missed yesterday’s game through injury and is set for a spell out, leaving Rowett with few attacking options. With faith in Connor Mahoney and Jiri Skalak dwindling, and Matt Smith as the only alternative striker, Rowett will undoubtedly be desperate to bring in some new options.

Many have been calling for the academy products to be brought into the fold, offering something different, but with play-offs still on the table, Rowett will be reluctant to turn to them.

Bennett Injection

Millwall had a typical Millwall day yesterday. Mason Bennett was very impressive, providing hope for the Lions, only to be blighted by injury before half-time.

Bennett has been superb for Millwall since joining at the end of January, putting quality displays against Forest and Barnsley. He provided an injection of pace and added dynamism in the final third, something that Millwall have been lacking.

His injury clearly disrupted Millwall, who never looked quite as threatening without him. The on-loan Derby man has struggled with injuries in the past, Millwall will be hoping that he isn’t out for a long spell.

Defensive Shift

They say necessity is the mother of invention and the same could be the case for Millwall.

In a bid to play his preferred back five, despite Alex Pearce missing through injury, Rowett shifted his backline to play Cooper in the middle of the three, with Murray Wallace on the left and Shane Ferguson as wing back.

Each of the players have adapted seamlessly and Millwall are flourishing.

Having Cooper centrally allows him to dominate while covering his lack of pace. He has won 9 out of 10 aerial duels in the last two games and has settled into role nicely.

Meanwhile, the combination of Murray Wallace and Ferguson has provided extra thrust down the left. Wallace has excellent stamina and can cover great distances, at times he looks as though he is still and attacking full-back.

Ferguson can push higher up the pitch with Wallace covering. His passes in behind from deep and his delivery were on display again against Swansea.

Ferguson has found a new home at left wing-back and has earned his contract extension with two impressive displays.

Tight As Tight Can Be

Now this may not be a new lesson, but it is one we are constantly reminded of: the championship is relentlessly unpredictable.

Millwall may have expected themselves to be out of the play-off picture with only two points from a possible nine. However, they somehow remain only five points away from sixth spot.

Teams around them continue to drop points and Millwall need to start making them pay. With a run of three games against relegation threatened sides up next, Millwall need to build a bit of momentum coming into the final stretch.

Liz The Lion

While fans cannot make the football, it is great to see clubs connecting with their supporters in different ways. Millwall encouraged supporters to drop off flags to be displayed in the stadium and the stands are filled with their cardboard faces.

One notable fan, loyal season ticket holder Queen Elizabeth II was spotted in SE16 yesterday, adorned in her best Lions strip.

It may not have been a display for royalty, but it’s great to see the ever loyal fanbase being represented.
