Preview | Sheffield United v Millwall

A look ahead to Saturday's trip...

13 April 2018

Millwall's penultimate Sky Bet Championship away game of the season takes place at Bramall Lane on Saturday afternoon as The Lions take on Sheffield United (kick-off 1pm).

With just four games remaining, Neil Harris' side travel to Yorkshire looking to cement their position in the top six of the League table and earn a third consecutive shot at the Play-Offs following two campaigns in League One.

Harris has no fresh injury worries to mull over, with Byron Webster still the only long-term absentee.

In 52 previous meetings, the two teams are locked at 22 victories each, with there being just eight draws in the previous encounters.

Lee Gregory, Mahlon Romeo and Jake Cooper were on target the last time Millwall and Sheffield United met, as The Lions won 3-1 at The Den in December. The Blades were 2-0 winners on the club's last visit to Bramall Lane, but they can take heart from the fact that United have won just one of the last five matches in Yorkshire.

Aiden O'Brien's double earned Millwall their last victory at Bramall Lane in a 2-1 win in October 2015.

The Lions' allocation for Saturday's trip has SOLD OUT and there will be no further tickets available. A beamback in The Den's Executive Lounge has also SOLD OUT, with no further tickets available.

If you are unable to make it to Bramall Lane or The Den, full match commentary will be available on iFollow Millwall from around 12.50pm, whilst international subscribers can watch the action unfold on iFollow. Click here for more details.

Stalemate in Sheffield as Millwall go 17 unbeaten

Our report from Bramall Lane...

14 April 2018

Millwall stretched their unbeaten run in the Sky Bet Championship to 17 games with a 1-1 draw at Sheffield United on Saturday afternoon.

In a keenly-contested encounter at Bramall Lane, Leon Clarke nodded The Blades in front on 74 minutes, only for Steve Morison to hit back instantly to claim a share of the spoils.

Neil Harris made just one change to his starting line-up from Tuesday night's 2-0 win at Bolton Wanderers, with Morison replacing Tom Elliott, who dropped to the bench.

An even start saw little in the way of goalmouth action until Lee Evans bent an effort towards Jordan Archer in the eighth minute - fortunately, it whistled past the post.

Chris Basham's deflected shot forced the stopper into his first save on 15 minutes, whilst seconds later, Steve Morison ballooned The Lions' first attempt of the afternoon way wide.

Ben Marshall's corner-kick found the unmarked Shaun Hutchinson with 22 minutes on the clock, but his powerful header was saved by Jamal Blackman. In what had begun to become an end-to-end encounter, John Lundstram headed Jack O'Connell's cross over at the other end.

Shortly before the half-hour mark, Clarke twisted and turned inside the penalty area and managed to fashion a powerful cross, but no Blades man was there for the easiest of tap-ins. John Fleck's mazy run took him past three Millwall players as the clock struck 30 minutes, but his shot was tame and Archer gratefully accepted.

Jake Cooper rose highest to meet a Shaun Williams corner 10 minutes before the break - his header was cleared as far as Jed Wallace, who thumped an effort towards goal only for it to be deflected behind. Wallace's cross seconds later struck a United arm inside the penalty area, but no spot-kick was given.

Inside first-half stoppage-time, Richard Stearman forced Archer into a full-length save to keep the score goalless.

A sloppy backpass following pressure from Wallace and Morison early into the second half saw Gregory pounce, but his angle to goal was too acute, resulting in his shot hitting the side-netting.

Archer was called into action once more on 50 minutes as George Baldock met Fleck's cross; the stopper pulling off a magnificent save from the defender's shot. Four minutes after that The Lions' defensive pairing of Hutchinson and Cooper caused chaos in the United defence from a free-kick, but that particular passage of play ended with Williams finding the upper tier with a volley.

On 64 minutes Williams brilliantly met a corner on the penalty spot, but his header was expertly tipped wide by Blackman. At the other end, Clarke nodded into the hands of Archer.

Substitute Mark Duffy showed outrageous skill to take the ball away from Romeo with 72 minutes on the clock, but after racing half the length of the field he dragged his shot wide of the post.

Two minutes later The Blades took the lead. Following a dubious corner-kick decision, a deep cross was swung over and nodded into the path of Clarke, who steered the ball home from close range.

However, that lead lasted just over one minute as, in the midst of United's celebrations, a long ball over the top from Cooper allowed Morison to poke home his fifth goal of the season.

Archer had to be at his best to tip Evans' shot over as the Bramall Lane atmosphere cranked up a notch, with Wallace denied a penalty shout five minutes from time in front of the travelling contingent.

In a frantic finale, both goalkeepers were called upon as firstly Blackman had to tip the ball wide from a deflection by his own defence, whilst Archer pulled off an outstanding save from close range.

Duffy's shot was deflected over the crossbar by a clutch of Lions defenders, whilst Evans was booked for simulation as he tried to win a penalty-kick in the dying embers of injury-time.

Further Sheffield United ticket update and beamback details

Important information ahead of crucial fixture

11 April 2018

Millwall Football Club has, following positive discussions with The EFL, Sheffield United and their Safety Advisory Group, been allocated an additional 100 tickets for Saturday’s game at Bramall Lane (kick-off 1pm).

The extra tickets are now SOLD OUT, but any fans who have purchased one of these additional tickets will need to collect from The Den before 5pm on Friday 13th April. They will not be available for collection at Bramall Lane. 

The club wishes to advise Lions supporters without a ticket for Saturday’s game not to travel to Bramall Lane as no further tickets will be available for purchase on matchday.

With Millwall firmly in the hunt for a Sky Bet Championship Play-Off place, and demand for tickets for Saturday’s game far outweighing supply, the club has arranged for a beamback of the match to be played at The Den.

Tickets for the beamback, which cost £8 for adults and £3 for U16s, are on general sale now and can be purchased in one of the following ways:

1. Online at www.millwalltickets.com (Booking fees apply)
2. By phone on 0844 826 2004 – option 2*
3. In person at the Millwall Ticket Office

Beamback tickets will go off sale at 5pm on Friday 13th April and there will be no sales on the day of the game.

The Den’s Executive Lounge, where the beamback is being held, will open from 11am.

Millwall would like to place on record its thanks to The EFL for helping the club secure an additional allocation of tickets and also for their assistance in arranging a beamback at late notice.

*Calls to this number will cost 7p per minute from your BT landline. Calls from other networks may vary and from mobiles will be considerably more. Booking fees apply
