Henderson and Kane finally give Millwall some firepower
Millwall 5 Dagenham & Redbridge 0
Wednesday 18 January 2012
Darius Henderson grabbed a hat-trick as Millwall saw off Dagenham & Redbridge last night and gained an FA Cup fourth-round home tie against the Championship leaders, Southampton. Henderson found the net for the first time since November and the Tottenham loanee Harry Kane scored his first goals for the club as they dispatched their League Two opponents.
"All round it's been a good evening for us, but now we've got to do it in the League," said the Millwall assistant manager, Joe Gallen. "We'll see in the next few weeks whether these two guys can score the goals we need."
Millwall, who lost 6-0 at home to Birmingham on Saturday, went ahead after just seven minutes, courtesy of Henderson, the big striker curling a fine effort past the Daggers goalkeeper Chris Lewington.
Four minutes before the interval Liam Trotter strode forward before sliding the ball to Kane, who struck home a superb low shot from 25 yards. Trotter's square pass then left Henderson with an open goal for the third in the 59th minute.
Four minutes later Henderson rolled in the penalty to complete his treble. Kane got his second in the 65th minute, a header from Henderson's cross.
