Millwall fought back from 3-1 down to earn a deserved point at Wrexham yesterday and move up to seventh place in the Second Division.

The Lions refused to lie down despite going two goals behind for a second time when Gary Bennett struck five minutes before half-time.

Ricky Newman pulled the score back to 3-2 with a header 13 minutes into the second half, and despite losing Lucas Neill for a second yellow card offence, Millwall equalised with 10 minutes left when Anton Rogan scored with a penalty after Brian Carey had handled.

Tony Humes and Wayne Phillips had earlier given Wrexham a 2-0 lead after half an hour before Steve Crawford pulled one back. Bennett then restored the two-goal gap before Newman and then Rogan struck.
