Following the appointment of John Docherty replacing George Graham in 1987-88 season, Millwall gained promotion to the top-flight of English football for the first time in the club's history. After beating QPR 3-2 on 1st October, The Lions topped the entire Football League. Millwall's first season amongst the elite of English football ended with a 10th place finish, the lowest position occupied by the club at any point during that campaign.
