BIG MATCH PREVIEW: IRON v MILLWALL

16 December 2016

The Iron welcome Millwall to Glanford Park, in their final home match of 2016.

Graham Alexander’s men are undefeated in the league throughout the calendar year, and will be looking to preserve the impressive record heading into 2017.

Both sides will also go into the match seeking a response to their respective loses against Rochdale and Shrewsbury Town last weekend.



Speaking ahead of the game, Alexander says only David Mirfin will be missing, with everyone else in the squad fit and ready to go.

Captain Stephen Dawson hasn’t suffered any repercussions of his ankle injury after coming through a full 90 minutes against Rochdale last weekend.

United will be hoping Murray Wallace is available also, after suffering a dead leg in last week's game.



Strikes from Gary McSheffrey and Jim O’Brien, either side of half time, secured an impressive victory at the Den back in February of this year.

McSheffrey set his side on their way to victory in the 17th minute, rifling home after a flowing team move.

United’s win was then wrapped up in stoppage time, as O’Brien placed the ball into the bottom corner of the goal with a low drive.
