FORMER Newcastle Jets striker Kristian Brymora helped Socceroos superstar Tim Cahill mark his return to English Championship club Millwall with a win.

Cahill, making his first appearance for Millwall in almost 14 years, scored a goal and laid on the opener for Brymora in a 3-2 triumph over Coventry City in the Professional Development League (reserves) on Tuesday morning.

The three-time World Cup striker, who joined the Lions last week, swept home from close range.

The 38-year-old left Melbourne City in December and joined the Championship club in late January. He last played for the Lions in the 2004 FA Cup final.

His return came a day ahead of the senior team's fourth-round FA Cup replay against Rochdale, which Cahill is ineligible for as he signed a day after the original tie. His first opportunity to play for the senior team comes on Saturday against Cardiff City in the Championship.

After leaving City, Cahill trained on his own in Byron Bay where he was monitored by the Socceroos' conditioning team.

Byrmora, 19, joined Millwall on a six-month contract in September which has been extended until the end of the season in May.
