Marvin Elliott scored the only goal of the game as Millwall beat Norwich 1-0 at the Den to register their first home win of the season.

The Championship's bottom club ended a run of 10 games without a win as they inflicted a fourth consecutive away defeat on Nigel Worthington's struggling side.

Elliott settled an awful contest in the 70th minute when he powered in from close range after Paul Robinson headed down Tony Craig's cross.

Long distance shots from Andy Hughes and Jermaine Wright were all either side could muster in the opening 30 minutes, before Norwich wasted a great chance just before the interval.

Dickson Etuhu, on loan from Preston, was the culprit, flicking a shot straight at veteran keeper Paul Jones from six yards.

Calum Davenport headed over and David Livermore fired too high as the dismal fare continued at the start of the second half, and the monotony was only broken when Elliott made the breakthrough.
