Millwall have admitted they are "shocked and disappointed" by the charges brought against them by the Football Association.

The Lions, along with West Ham, have been reprimanded by the FA following the crowd trouble that marred their Carling Cup meeting on August 25.

The club said in a statement: "Millwall Football Club are shocked and disappointed that charges have been proffered against us in respect of events that took place at West Ham United on Tuesday 25th August 2009. We maintain that we did everything in our power with regard to our ticketing arrangements for this game. Furthermore we expressed our concerns in advance about ticket allocations and arrangements in general."

It added: "It was widely acknowledged that none of our supporters came onto the pitch, and indeed the behaviour and forbearance of our fans brought praise from media observers on the night.

"Our question for the Football Association is what can Millwall Football Club do to control individuals' actions once inside our opponents' stadium. We have, and we continue to assist the authorities in their investigations into the events of that evening."
