PREVIEW: MILLWALL (A)

16 February 2016

The Iron travel to Millwall on Tuesday and will be hoping to extend their winning run to four consecutive matches.

Paddy Madden grabbed the only goal as United defeated play-off hopefuls Southend at the weekend, continuing Nick Daws and Andy Dawson’s 100% record since taking caretaker charge.

They will face a tough test on Tuesday, with Millwall in sixth spot and in a great run of form, having not lost in six league matches.

The Lions have won five out of those six, including a 1-0 win at Rochdale on Saturday, with striker Lee Gregory getting the only goal.

Millwall will hope to close the gap between themselves and the top two, while the Iron will hope to bring themselves nearer to the top six.



Luke Williams will be assessed ahead of the trip after picking up a knee injury at the weekend.

Elsewhere, there are no fresh injury worries.

Jim O'Brien, Greg Luer and Dom Vose will be hoping to make their first appearances for the Iron, with the latter two players on the bench against Southend.




Lee Gregory will hope to extend his impressive personal goal scoring run when he comes up the Iron, adding to his 18 goals in all competitions.

The striker has found the net eight times in his last six matches in all competitions and is the Lions’ leading marksman this campaign.

Gregory made his name playing for non-league side FC Halifax Town, where he helped the team to back-to-back promotions to the Conference Premier.

He also enjoyed a hugely prolific 2013/14 season, with his 31 goals helping his side reach the Conference play-off semi-finals.

This prompted Millwall to splash out on the striker to bring him to the club, but his nine goals were unable to keep them in the Championship.

The 27-year-old has enjoyed a good season so far though and his manager will hope his goals can help fire the club to an instant return to the second tier.



The Iron’s last trip to The Den saw the hosts run out 3-0 winners in United’s 2010-11 Championship campaign.

James Henry gave Millwall the lead with a long range effort in the first half and that was how it stayed until the final ten minutes.

The hosts finished strongly and sealed the victory thanks to two Steve Morison goals, which put the result beyond doubt.

The Iron could face Morison again, with the striker now back at the club for his second spell.
