Alexander: Lions brace

Aldershot's FA Cup campaign was ended by Millwall after Gary Alexander struck twice to give the Lions a 3-0 victory in their second-round clash at The Den.

Millwall broke the deadlock after half an hour when Alexander headed home Dave Martin's left-wing cross from close range.

And four minutes later a last-gasp clearance by Aldershot's Ricky Newman prevented Marc Laird connecting with Alexander's low ball across the six-yard box.

Alexander missed a sitter for the hosts 36 seconds after the interval when he fired wide from Lewis Grabban's cross with the goal at his mercy.

Aldershot's best chance fell to Chris Blackburn only to see his shot cleared off the line by Tony Craig.

Blackburn turned to his defensive duties after 71 minutes, scrambling away Neil Harris' goalbound header.

Millwall did finally add a second six minutes later when Alexander's header from Paul Robinson's delivery flew into the net.

Substitute Ashley Grimes completed the scoring two minutes from time when he rose to head Chris Hackett's cross beyond goalkeeper Nikki Bull.
