MATCH PREVIEW: MILLWALL

3 November 2017

THE Brewers are back on the road in the Sky Bet Championship after back-to-back home games against Ipswich and Barnsley respectively.

HEAD 2 HEAD


Burton Albion and Millwall have even honours when it comes to head to heads. The Brewers beat Millwall in their first ever competitive meeting back in 2015 thanks to goals from Damien McCrory and Nasser El Khayati.

When the Brewers last travelled to Millwall it was Aiden O’Brien and Lee Gregory that sunk Nigel Clough’s men in front of 8,012 spectators.

SEASON SO FAR



It took Millwall until their 5th Championship game of the season to secure their first win, but it was worth the wait. They hit four past Norwich City at the New Den after early defeats to Nottingham Forest, Ipswich and Reading.

They then went on to beat high-flying Leeds United in September. They have one win in their last five games.


BURTON ALBION TEAM NEWS
Kyle 


McFadzean broke his nose in a collision with Ike Ugbo on Tuesday night and is now struggling to face Millwall on Saturday, adding to Nigel Clough’s injury list.

John Brayford (hamstring), Joe Mason (back) and Will Miller (hamstring) were all unavailable against Barnsley. Brayford will definitely miss out although there is a slight chance of Mason, Miller and Murphy being available.



MILLWALL TEAM NEWS



With Jake Cooper now suspended following his red card in midweek and Byron Webster out for the season through injury, 32-year-old centre-back Tony Craig will have to start. Tom Elliott started ahead of Lee Gregory and Steve Morison on the weekend and will likely keep his spot up top after scoring The Lions' only goal.


NIGEL CLOUGH'S THOUGHTS
“It will be incredibly difficult. They rested three of their main players last night against Sheffield Wednesday so I think they have targeted our fixture as an opportunity to get three points.

"Neil Harris left his two main strikers out so they will be fit to go and we will have to deal with them. Gregory and Morison were a handful in League One and they are at this level. They get the ball up to them and play from there."

REFEREE



Tony Harrington will be in charge of Millwall vs Burton Albion at the New Den. The Cleveland-based referee has taken charge of 14 games this season, including Albion’s 4-0 defeat to Wolves back in September.

His assistants will be Geoffrey Russell and Daniel Leach with Ian Cooper the 4th official.
