Harris delighted as Millwall into FA Cup quarterfinals

Millwall are into the FA Cup quarterfinals after a 1-0 win at AFC Wimbledon.

Millwall defender Murray Wallace was labelled an "FA Cup hero" after he scored the winning goal for the second round in a row as the Championship side beat AFC Wimbledon to reach the quarterfinals.

Wallace, who also netted in the 94th minute against Everton, headed home in the fifth minute - moments after Joe Pigott had struck the post for the hosts.

"In the FA Cup you need heroes and Murray was that against Everton and he was again today," said Millwall boss Neil Harris.

Harris will surely believe there is a chance to continue their cup run this season, especially if they avoid a Premier League side in Monday's quarter-final draw.

"I said to players cup football suits us because of the way we play. It can be frantic - 100 miles an hour," he added.
