Preview | Millwall v Fulham

Blockbuster night in store at The Den...

20 April 2018

Millwall welcome Fulham to The Den on Friday night for a blockbuster Sky Bet Championship clash LIVE on Sky Sports (kick-off 7.45pm).

With just three games remaining in the regular League season, The Lions sit in sixth place, one point clear of Derby County in the race for the Play-Offs, whilst The Whites are currently in third, chasing automatic promotion to the Premier League.

This particular encounter boasts the two clubs with the longest unbeaten runs in the country - Millwall are on a 17-game run without defeat in the League, whilst their opponents haven't lost in 21 matches.

A sold-out Den awaits both teams, with the warmer-than-usual temperatures looking to add all the ingredients needed to make it a special night in SE16.

Byron Webster remains the only absentee in a squad that otherwise picks itself.

The two clubs have only met 43 times previously, with Fulham three in front in the all-time stakes 17-14. Oliver Norwood was on target from the penalty spot in the meeting at Craven Cottage earlier this season in a controversial 1-0 defeat for The Lions, with three of the last four meetings at The Den ending in stalemate.

Millwall's last home win over Fulham came in April 1982, when Dave Martin's goal accompanied Dean Horrix's hat-trick in a 4-3 win.

There will be no Family Fun Zone on Friday night, but a DJ will be on hand to entertain the masses by the SE16 Bar from 6pm.

Due to the large crowd, Millwall strongly urge supporters wishing to collect tickets to do so in good time prior to kick-off to prevent lengthy queues building.

If you are unable to make it to The Den on Friday night or just fancy sitting out in the garden and making the most of the weather, full match commentary will be available on iFollow Millwall from 7.40pm.

Due to the match being shown LIVE on Sky Sports, international subscribers will be unable to watch all the action on iFollow.

Match Reports

Lions unbeaten run at an end as Fulham claim victory

Our report from a sold-out Den...

20 April 2018

Millwall's 17-match unbeaten run in the Sky Bet Championship ground to a halt at The Den on Friday night as Fulham defeated The Lions 3-0.

In front of a crowd of 17,614 The Lions had a goal disallowed and one cleared off the line, but two strikes in 10 second half minutes from Ryan Sessegnon and Kevin McDonald, along with Aleksandar Mitrovic's late effort, handed Fulham victory.

Neil Harris once more kept his starting XI and substitutes the same.

The Lions could have taken the lead just three minutes in, but Jake Cooper crashed a header from a corner-kick against the crossbar. From the rebound, Shaun Williams nodded into the arms of Marcus Bettinelli.

A highly controversial moment saw Millwall have the ball in the net on 15 minutes through George Saville, but referee Andre Marriner deemed there to have been a foul in the build-up, seemingly from Jed Wallace.

A sustained spell of pressure from Fulham followed as they attempted to gain a foothold in the game, with Mitrovic heading over from Matt Targett's cross, whilst a ball into box minutes later nearly presented a tap-in - however, a combination of Lions defenders managed to clear the ball to safety.

In a powder-keg atmosphere Millwall swung the pendulum shortly before the half-hour mark, but Tim Ream raced back to clear Wallace's shot off the line after Bettinelli flapped through pressure from Steve Morison.

Shaun Hutchinson blocked the lively Targett's shot on 31 minutes, whilst four minutes later a neat piece of play from Wallace saw Morison through on goal - his cross, however, was too hard for the awaiting Lee Gregory at the back post.

Shortly before half-time, solid work from Gregory allowed Marshall to cross - Bettinelli went for the punch, Morison beat him to it, but unfortunately he headed over the crossbar.

As the first-half drew to a close, dangerman Targett hit the target, but his shot clipped the bar and went over.

The second half was barely a minute old when Fulham took the lead. A long-range effort was parried by Jordan Archer into the path of Sessegnon, who slotted under the legs of the stopper to open the scoring.

One could - and maybe should - have become two minutes later, but Stefan Johansen dragged his shot wide with only Archer to beat. Tom Cairney then blasted over the bar and The Whites looked to double their lead.

With 56 minutes on the clock, Fulham did indeed extend their advantage in exceptional circumstances, as McDonald rounded Saville and struck a long-range effort past the despairing dive of Archer.

The 'keeper saved low down from Sessegnon's stinging effort on 63 minutes, before Millwall's first substitution of the night saw Tom Elliott replace Ben Marshall in a move that saw The Lions switch to 4-3-3.

Mitrovic had two wayward attempts at goal as the final 20 minutes approached, whilst Williams' low effort was gratefully accepted by Bettinelli on 73 minutes.

Tim Cahill's introduction in a deeper role more familiar to the younger version of the Australian attempted to inject new life into The Lions, but it was Fulham who nearly wrapped up the game six minutes from time as Sessegnon fizzed a shot past the post.

Late on, Mitrovic guided the ball home to complete the victory.
