Cahill makes Millwall return in Championship draw with Cardiff
Tim Cahill has made his first senior appearance for Millwall in almost 14 years in the club’s draw with high-flyers Cardiff City in the Championship on Saturday morning.
The Caltex Socceroos striker came on in the 90th-minute to a rousing reception from the fans at the Den, two decades after first playing for the Lions as a teenager.
But Cahill wasn’t able to inspire his side to find a late winner, as Millwall held on for a hard-earned 1-1 draw against promotion-chasing City.
The 38-year-old watched from the bench as the visitors took a third minute lead through Junior Hoilett.
But Millwall hit back just five minutes before half-time as Lee Gregory found the net after excellent work from Jed Wallace.
Both sides had chances to win the match in the second half but were forced to settle for a point which really doesn’t help either team.
Fellow Caltex Socceroo - left-back James Meredith - played the full 90 minutes for the Lions.
Millwall remain in 14th spot on the Championship ladder, 13 points above the relegation zone.
Cahill will be hoping for more action in the club’s next Championship fixture away at Birmingham next weekend.
Earlier this week he played and scored for Millwall’s under-23s in his first game for the club in 14 years since the 2004 FA Cup final against Manchester United.
