Formation and Tactical approach
Harris prefers to get the ball forward and wide as many times as possible. The Lions usually adopt a big target man beside a natural goal scorer. Once they are in the lead, Millwall go defensive and keep it tight as possible – making the first goal in the game very important. However, if the match is in the balance we can expect Millwall to be aggressive and push for the three points.
Last game and performance
Millwall conceded a heartbreaking 90th-minute equaliser – meaning they dropped two points against Championship leaders Leeds. Before the game, Millwall would have certainly taken a point, but conceding so late would have left them frustrated. It was a very tight game with both teams evenly matched. Millwall had the better of possession and pumped plenty of crosses and long throws into the Leeds box but were not overly threatening.
Steve Morison – Morison remains fundamental to the way the Lions set up, even if the goals have dried up of late. The 35-year-old’s aerial ability and appreciation of those around him make him the perfect striker to play off the more prolific Lee Gregory.
One to Watch
Jed Wallace – A creative player who is elegant on the ball and has an eye for goal. The former Portsmouth man scored at Loftus Road last season and fired his first of the campaign against Leeds last Saturday.
