Yesterdays: Bullen keeps clean sheet as Owls triumph at The Den

4 February 2015


On this day in 2006, in extraordinary circumstances at The Den, Wednesday claimed a crucial 1-0 win over Millwall.

In a relegation battle at the foot of the Championship, Millwall players celebrated what seemed a big goal as Tony Craig appeared to have scored direct from a corner.

But with the Lions unaware the goal had been disallowed, the Owls quickly restarted the game and raced forward in numbers.

Frank Simek scrambled home from inside the box to spark dramatic scenes in south east London.



Former Owls defender and current coach Lee Bullen played a big part in the memorable capital clash as the stopper donned the goalkeeper gloves for the entire second half.

Goalkeeper David Lucas left the action early through injury but there was no way past Bullen as the Owls held on for an outstanding victory.

Wednesday went on to finish ten points clear of the drop, while Crewe, Millwall and Brighton were relegated to League One.
