Preview | Millwall v QPR

Friday night's London derby under the microscope...

29 December 2017

Millwall's final game of 2017 takes place on Friday night at The Den as The Lions entertain QPR in a Sky Bet Championship London derby (kick-off 7.45pm).

Neil Harris' side enter the clash with The R's in good spirits, having lost just one of their last five matches - a 3-0 defeat at Derby County - stringing together a four-game unbeaten run at The Den in the process.

The Lions will hope to end what has been a very successful 2017 on a high before the festive period of fixtures ends with a trip to Norwich City on New Years' Day.

Harris has the same squad to choose from following Boxing Day's 2-2 draw with Wolves, but will check on the fitness of Conor McLaughlin and Tom Elliott, who both withdrew from Tuesday's encounter with tightness.

Friday night will see the two clubs meet for the 72nd time, with Millwall holding the upper hand, having won 30 matches to QPR's 19.

The Lions looked to be on the way to a first away victory of the season in the last meeting on 12th September, but after McLaughlin gave Millwall the lead, Lee Gregory was shown a straight red card. Jed Wallace doubled the advantage in the second-half, but depsite a heroic defensive performance, The R's registered two late goals to snatch a point.

There was late drama in the last encounter at The Den, too, as Jermaine Easter scored a 90th-minute equaliser in a 2-2 draw in October 2013. Niko Kranjcar opened the scoring, but Scott McDonald got The Lions back on level terms. Charlie Austin looked to have given QPR all three points, but Easter's late strike ensured a share of the spoils.

Friday's match is nearing a sell-out and the club advise supporters needing to collect their tickets to arrive in good time in attempt to avoid lengthy queues shortly before kick-off. Click here for the latest ticket update.

Morison off the mark as Lions defeat QPR

Our take on Friday night's London derby...

29 December 2017

Steve Morison's first goal of the season secured a nervy 1-0 victory for Millwall over Queens Park Rangers in the Sky Bet Championship on Friday night.

With 55 minutes on the clock, Morison headed Jed Wallace's cross past Alex Smithies to extend Millwall's unbeaten run at The Den to five games and end 2017 on a high.

Lions boss Neil Harris made three changes from the Boxing Day draw with League leaders Wolves, as Mahlon Romeo, Ryan Tunnicliffe and Morison returned to the side at the expense of Conor McLaughlin, Shaun Williams and Tom Elliott.

The first chance of the evening came on 6 minutes, as some neat play between Aiden O'Brien and Lee Gregory almost teed up a shot - however, the ball was cleared. O'Brien's half-chance mere seconds later was put wide, whilst Massimo Luongo shot QPR's first effort way over the crossbar.

In what was a scrappy, midfield battle, half-chances were the norm, with Jake Bidwell also finding the Cold Blow Lane end with a shot on 21 minutes.

The Lions' big moment came on 28 minutes as Morison looked to fire home a cross, but the striker slipped at the vital moment. George Saville pounced upon the rebound, but his shot was blocked. Gregory also had an attempt on the turn deflected away for a corner-kick.

Millwall began to turn the screw and could have taken the lead with 33 minutes on the clock, but Wallace found the side-netting. The winger then nearly played in Tunnicliffe, but his ball drew the midfielder too wide and the attack fizzled out.

Jordan Archer had to be called upon shortly after, as Bidwell ghosted in at the back post to plant a free header goalwards. Fortunately, the stopper was well placed to palm the attempt away.

Luke Freeman's glancing header forced an easy save from Archer as the second-half got underway, but on 55 minutes, Millwall took the lead as Morison crashed home a header from Wallace's deft cross for his first - and long-deserved - goal of the 2017/18 campaign.

There was split-second panic in the Millwall defence on 64 minutes as Archer spilled Luongo's long-range effort, but the goalkeeper was on hand to grab the rebound and prevent an equaliser.

Idrissa Sylla flashed a shot wide of the post, but The Lions attacked once more, with Wallace curling an effort into the arms of Alex Smithies.

Two minutes from time, The R's had a chance to level, but substitute Matt Smith headed wide of the post.

A nervy period of stoppage-time commenced, but The Lions held firm to claim a priceless win.
