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.
