Preview | Millwall v Sheffield United

A look ahead to Saturday's encounter...

2 December 2017

Millwall take on Sheffield United in the Sky Bet Championship this Saturday at The Den (kick-off 3pm).

Following last Saturday's narrow defeat at Craven Cottage against Fulham, The Lions return to The Den hoping to arrest a run of form that has seen just one win - a 2-0 success over Birmingham City - in their last nine games.

To do that, however, they will have to defeat a Sheffield United side that have carried the momentum from their League One title-winning campaign last year into this season.

The Blades currently sit in the top six of the Championship table and harbour real ambitions of a place in the Premier League in 2018/19.

Neil Harris will be boosted by the return of Jed Wallace this weekend, with the winger having completed his three-match ban after being sent off against Burton Albion at The Den.

Shaun Williams has returned to training but remains unavailable for the visit of Chris Wilder's men, whilst Byron Webster acts as The Lions' only other long-term absentee.

Conor McLaughlin will be forced to miss his first League game of the season through suspension after picking up his fifth booking at Fulham.

The historical record between The Lions and The Blades is near-equal - in 51 meetings, Sheffield United have recorded 22 wins to Millwall's 21.

The last encounter at The Den saw the two sides meet early on in their promotion-winning League One seasons, as Steve Morison's 89th-minute penalty-kick earned Millwall three points in a 2-1 victory.

The Family Fun Zone is back this Saturday! Join us in the Lions Centre between 1-2pm for FREE family fun, including Table Tennis, Arts & Crafts, Badge Making, Dart Football, Pool Football and a Bouncy Castle.

For those unable to make it to The Den this weekend, full match commentary will be available on iFollow Millwall from around 2.50pm.

The visit of The Blades, however, will NOT be shown on iFollow. The fixture has been selected as the main highlight feature on Channel 5's 'The Championship' programme and will therefore be broadcast overseas.

Gregory instrumental as Lions blunt Blades

Our take as The Lions secure victory at The Den...

2 December 2017

Goals from Lee Gregory, Mahlon Romeo and Jake Cooper secured an important home win for Millwall as they defeated Sheffield United 3-1 in the Sky Bet Championship on Saturday afternoon.

Gregory scored his third of the campaign to give The Lions the lead, before David Brooks equalised for The Blades.

The Lions had the last laugh, however, as defenders Romeo and Cooper eased Millwall to victory.

Boss Neil Harris made three changes from last Saturday's 1-0 defeat at Fulham, as Romeo, Jed Wallace - returning from suspension - and Gregory returned to the side at the expense of the suspended Conor McLaughlin, Fred Onyedinma and Tom Elliott.

As ever, Millwall started the brighter in front of their home fans and carved out a half-chance on 5 minutes, but the ball wouldn't drop for Gregory on the edge of the six-yard box after Wallace's pass found the frontman.

John Lundstram fashioned The Blades' opening opportunity of the afternoon four minutes later, but his shot cannoned off Brooks and fortunately bounced wide.

Sheffield United rightfully had a penalty appeal waved away on 11 minutes as Brooks threw himself to the ground inside the box - referee Andrew Madley produced a yellow card for simulation.

In a frenetic opening period, Millwall had further half-chances through Steve Morison and Ryan Tunnicliffe, but could not convert to find that elusive goal.

On 14 minutes, however, they found it. Gregory sent Wallace away down the right-hand side with a deft header and after the winger located Morison with a delightful pass, the striker's cross seeked out the goalscorer, who turned and guided the ball into the bottom corner for his third goal of the season.

United had a golden chance to level the scoring with 22 minutes on the clock, but Brooks' effort was too weak and gratefully accepted by Jordan Archer.

Millwall were defending resolutely in what was an end-to-end encounter, whilst at the other end, George Saville forced Jamal Blackman into a reaction save as The Lions looked to double their lead.

On 42 minutes, the scoring was levelled through Brooks' neat strike on the volley. A cross found the Blade unmarked at the back post and he guided his attempt past Archer and into the opposite corner.

A neat interchange of passing nearly handed Sheffield United a second goal as the second half got underway, but, eventually, John Fleck's shot went over the crossbar.

The Blades were on top as the 60-minute mark came and went, but could only muster a shot wide from Mark Duffy as the game begun to enter its final stages.

On 66 minutes, owing to some outstanding work from Gregory, The Lions took the lead through an unlikely source in Romeo. After United looked to mount an attack, the striker tracked back and slid in superbly to win the ball - his inch-perfect pass then found the right-back, who slotted home for his first goal of the season on his first Sky Bet Championship start.

Millwall came agonisingly close to notching a third goal on 78 minutes, but Cooper just failed to make contact with the ball at the back post following Shane Ferguson's free-kick.

The Blades went three up-front in their search of an equaliser - a move that Harris looked to counter by bringing on Tony Craig, who slotted into the defence alongside Shaun Hutchinson and Cooper.

That proved obsolete within seconds, however, as Cooper crashed home Millwall's third off the crossbar, with the ball clearly bouncing over the line despite split-second indecision from referee Madley.

Late on, Aiden O'Brien made his 150th appearance for The Lions, coming on as a substitute for the excellent Wallace.

Millwall: Archer, Meredith, Hutchinson, Gregory (Thompson 76'), Ferguson (Craig 86'), Romeo, Wallace (O'Brien 90+2'), Tunnicliffe, Morison, Saville, Cooper. Subs not used: King, Mbulu, Twardek, Elliott.

Scorer: Gregory 14', Romeo 66', Cooper 87'

Sheffield United: Blackman, Stevens, Fleck, O'Connell, Basham, Lundstram (Donaldson 82'), Clarke, Carter-Vickers, Stearman (Sharp 73'), Duffy, Brooks. Subs not used: Moore, Wright, Heneghan, Lafferty, Carruthers.
