PREVIEW: MILLWALL (H)

21 August 2015

The Iron welcome Millwall to Glanford Park on Saturday and will hope to bounce back from Wednesday’s defeat at Wigan.

The Latics ran out 3-0 winners, but Mark Robins will hope to see his side make it two victories from two on home soil.

Millwall have not had an easy return to League One, following their relegation last year, and have lost their last two matches.

They fell to a late defeat to Barnsley in midweek, but have won on their only other away trip this season against Shrewsbury.

Both managers will be looking for a reaction from their sides at Glanford Park on Saturday and will relish the chance to bounce back quickly.



Jamie Ness picked up a knock (hip) in midweek and so could be a doubt for the clash.

Goalkeeper Luke Daniels has also completed his suspension, meaning he could be in line for a return between the sticks.

Andrew Boyce will not be available as he has joined Hartlepool on loan, while injured duo Niall Canavan and Luke Williams are also absent.



Millwall fans were delighted to see the return of a club legend over the summer, with Steve Morison joining from Leeds United.

The striker first came to recognition when he had prolific spells at Bishop Stortford and Stevenage, where he found the net 86 times in 150 games.

This alerted the Lions to take a chance on the Welsh international and he carried on his impressive form for his new side.

After two successful seasons he joined Norwich in 2011/12, playing in the Premier League and netting 10 in his debut season.

He fell out of favour at the Canaries though, prompting his move to Leeds where his career was very much stop-start.

Morison returned to Millwall on loan in 2013/14 and, following a brief return to Leeds, finds himself back at the Den to spearhead their promotion push.



Millwall’s last trip to Glanford Park back in 2010/11 was a successful one, as they came away with the points thanks to a 2-1 win.

A goal five minutes either side of half time from young striker John Marquis put the Lions in a commanding position.

The Iron did respond late on through a Michael O’Connor penalty, but it proved to be merely a consolation and left United staring at relegation to League One.

Meanwhile, the result hugely boosted Millwall’s chances of making the play-offs, although they eventually would miss out.

A more memorable clash against the Lions for Iron fans came in the League One play-off final of 2008/09, which United won 3-2.

Matt Sparrow’s brace and a Martyn Woolford goal helped the Iron to victory over a Millwall side that included current manager Neil Harris.
