MILLWALL blasted Reading for disrespecting them by providing a 'broom cupboard' to get ready in.
Gary Rowett’s Lions had the last laugh with a 2-1 win at the Madejski.
But they were angry over the facilities provided.
A Millwall source told SunSport: “We feel we got a broom cupboard.
“We had three small rooms, one for the first team, one for the subs, and the coaching staff were in a separate room.
“It wasn’t heated properly so we had to run cables to our coach to power small heaters.
“The Madejski is an impressive stadium with conference facilities and a hotel on-site.
"We were in the concourse and it feels a bit like gamesmanship from Reading.”
Lions boss Rowett added: “We weren’t hoping to hold our team meeting at minus eight degrees.
“The players felt a tad disrespected. It gave us extra motivation.

“In these Covid times, I believe you have to be respectful to each other.”
Reading declined to comment but a club source said: “It’s a bit ironic from Millwall.
“At their place you have to change at a leisure centre down the road.”
The Lions fell behind to Alfa Semedo’s effort but hit back thanks to late goals from subs Matt Smith and Mason Bennett.
