Football: IT'S RICH PICKINGS; WBA 0 Millwall 2.

MILLWALL boss Mark McGhee was quick to praise hotshot Richard Sadlier after the Irishman's superb double strike sank high-flying West Brom at The Hawthorns.

"This could be the breakthrough for Richard," said the delighted McGhee. "He has been terrific for us this season.

"But the one thing missing from his game has been goals. He leads the line well, he does everything a striker should do, and he is going to be a marvellous player."

Dublin-born Sadlier struck for the first time in the 19th minute when he turned defender Larus Sigurdsson in the box before lashing home a fierce right-foot shot.

Seven minutes later, David Livermore fired in a shot from the edge of the area and the hard-working Sadlier applied the final touch to direct the ball home.

The Lions have been beaten just once in their last seven league outings and Albion boss Gary Megson admitted his side did little to merit a draw.

"I had a lot of players out there who should have done much better," said Megson. "We were an accident waiting to happen."
