Former Fulham defender Matthew Briggs, now at Millwall, went from hero to villain as Millwall progressed to the second round of the Capital One Cup at Wycombe's expense.

The former Fulham man picked up his first yellow card after he took his shirt off to celebrate scoring his first goal for the club on 27 minutes.

He received his marching orders just before the hour mark after his high foot caught Sido Jombati on the edge of Wycombe's area and will miss his return to Craven Cottage.

Manager Ian Holloway was absolutely livid after the first yellow and the needlessness of the second challenge will do nothing to improve his mood.

Millwall were, by and large, sloppy for most of the game; struggling to string passes together and, on occasions hoofing the ball to the striker and it was Wycombe who looked more like the Championship team. But despite going down to 10 men Millwall held on for a 1-0 victory.
