Preview | Ipswich Town v Millwall

Lions aiming for record...

1 April 2018

Millwall travel to Ipswich Town in the Sky Bet Championship on Easter Monday (kick-off 3pm) looking for a seventh consecutive away League win.

After victories at Leeds United, Reading, Birmingham City, Burton Albion, Hull City and Barnsley, Neil Harris' squad will arrive at Portman Road looking to set a new club record.

They take on a Tractor Boys outfit with little to play for at either end of the table and with long-serving manager Mick McCarthy seeing out his final matches in charge before departing at the end of the campaign.

The same squad that defeated Nottingham Forest on Good Friday is available for selection in Suffolk, with just Byron Webster and Ben Thompson remaining on the injured list.

In 53 previous meetings between the two, Ipswich hold the upper hand by two (21-19) and have defeated The Lions on the last three occasions, but Millwall will hope to emulate their last win at Portman Road, which came in April 2012, as Andy Keogh (2) and Liam Trotter were on target in a 3-0 win.

The Lions' allocation of just under 2,000 tickets has SOLD OUT for Monday's clash, with no further tickets being made available.

If you cannot make the journey, full match commentary will be available on iFollow Millwall from around 2.50pm, whilst international subscribers can watch all the action on iFollow. Click here for more details.

Match Reports

Lions stretch unbeaten run with Ipswich point

Our report from Portman Road...

2 April 2018

Jake Cooper and George Saville were on target as Millwall drew 2-2 with Ipswich Town at Portman Road in the Sky Bet Championship on Easter Monday.

Cooper looked to have set The Lions on the way with a header in the first-half, but two goals in two minutes from substitute Ben Folami* and Martyn Waghorn turned the game on its head.

However, George Saville hit his 10th goal of the season on the hour-mark to secure a share of the spoils and stretch Millwall's unbeaten run to 14 matches, despite late chances at either end.

Manager Neil Harris kept the same squad from Friday's 2-0 victory over Nottingham Forest, with Aiden O'Brien once more taking his place on the bench following his return from injury.

Early shouts for a penalty-kick were turned down as Waghorn tumbled under the challenge of Cooper, whilst on 10 minutes, the former Lions loanee could have given The Tractor Boys the lead, but a double save from Jordan Archer kept the score level.

Lee Gregory's shot was deflected at the other end, with Cole Skuse forcing a clutch of Millwall bodies to clear behind after he found himself in space inside the area shortly after.

Indecision between Luke Chambers and Bartosz Bialkowski nearly let Ben Marshall in on 18 minutes, with the goalkeeper again making a meal of a simple clearance seconds later with Steve Morison waiting to pounce - Bialkowski's blushes were spared by the referee's whistle.

With 24 minutes on the clock, Mustapha Carayol cut inside Shaun Hutchinson and unleashed a powerful strike towards goal, but the ball luckily whistled over the top of the crossbar.

Three minutes later, The Lions took the lead. Neat build-up play set up Marshall, who provided yet another assist, this time for Cooper, who guided a header into the net to open the scoring.

On 33 minutes, quick thinking from Morison allowed Jed Wallace to cross for the onrushing Saville, however, the ball was just too long for the midfielder, who shot over.

The second-half was seven minutes old when Ipswich equalised. Cole Skuse's shot was parried by Archer and, following an almighty scramble, the ball was bundled home by substitute Folami*.

Two minutes later, Waghorn punished some slack Lions defending to round Archer and slot into an empty net.

As the hour-mark struck, the goals continued to flow - Saville controlled Wallace's cross and slammed home across Bialkowski for his 10th goal of the campaign.

On 78 minutes, a neat one-two between Mahlon Romeo and Gregory set the latter in on goal, but his left-footed shot was high and wide.

Five minutes from time, Gregory and Wallace combined to draw a save from Bialkowski, with the follow-up from substitute O'Brien agonisingly crashing against the post.

An unmarked O'Brien scuffed his shot wide and Wallace forced Bialkowski into a stunning save late on, meaning that whilst The Lions were unable to set a new club record of consecutive away League wins, they did gain another point on the road, extending their unbeaten run further.

Ipswich Town: Bialkowski, Knudsen, Chambers, Webster, Skuse (Hyam 76'), Waghorn, Celina, Spence, Gleeson, Kenlock (Folami 46'), Carayol (Ward 64'). Subs not used: Crowe, Connolly, Sears, Carter-Vickers.
