Wales international Morison grabbed his 13th goal of the season to help the home side maintain their pursuit of a play-off place.

The forward tapped home a James Henry cross in the 17th minute to give Millwall the lead.

Henry doubled the score with a 20-yard shot that deflected in off Tykes defender Matthew Hill.

Barnsley appeared to improve after the break but striker Danny Haynes missed their best chance when he fired wide of goal.

The second half was something of a non-event but resulted in a fourth straight home win which moved Millwall up to eighth, just three points shy of the top six.

But it was a second wasted trip to south London in the space of a month for the 270 hardy Barnsley fans after the original fixture was called off a couple of hours before kick-off.
