West Ham’s bitter rivals Millwall secured promotion to the Championship on Saturday with a 1-0 win over Bradford in the play-off final – and Hammers fans aren’t exactly pleased.

There is a huge rivalry shared between the two London clubs despite them barely playing each other in recent years.

However following their League One play-off win at Wembley this weekend, there is now just one division that separates them.

In what was a very tense affair, Millwall secured the victory in the 85th minute through Steve Morison which will see them back in the Championship for the first time since their relegation in 2014/15.

West Ham fans aren’t very happy for their rivals though and have slammed their fans for their pitch invasion on the final whistle.

Here is a selection of their tweets:

West Ham and Millwall last met in 2012 when the home side secured a 2-1 win at Upton Park in the Championship.

They have only played each other seven times since the turn of the millennium and most of the fixtures are met with unsavoury scenes among the crowds.

Millwall finished sixth in League One this season and were the lowest placed team in the play-offs.

They beat Scunthorpe over two legs in the semi-finals, despite the Iron finishing in third place and nine points ahead of the Lions.
