Preview | Birmingham City v Millwall

A look ahead to Saturday's St Andrew's trip...

16 February 2018

Millwall go in search of a third consecutive Sky Bet Championship away win on Saturday afternoon as The Lions take on Birmingham City at St Andrew's (kick-off 3pm).

Neil Harris' side head to the Midlands in good form, with just one League defeat suffered in 2018. Birmingham, meanwhile, will look to bounce back from last weekend's derby day disappointment as The Blues lost 2-0 to Aston Villa.

Aiden O'Brien and Bryon Webster remain long-term absentees, but Harris otherwise has a full squad to select from.

Ben Marshall impressed on his debut in last Friday's televised 1-1 draw with Cardiff City and will look to retain his place, whilst Tim Cahill's fitness will be assessed once more with regards to his involvement after making his second debut late on against The Bluebirds.

The two clubs will meet for the 45th time this Saturday, with Birmingham holding the upper hand historically, having won 21 times to Millwall's 11.

It is The Lions looking to do the double in 2017/18, however, after the Sky Sports cameras were on hand to pick up Maxime Colin's own-goal and Ryan Tunnicliffe's first Millwall strike in a 2-0 win at The Den back in October.

Millwall also tasted victory on their last visit to St Andrew's, as Alan Dunne nodded the winner in a single-goal success back in February 2015.

Around 1,000 fans will make their way to Birmingham this Saturday and The Blues have issued the following guide for away supporters to make the most of their day at St. Andrew's. Click here to view it.

The club have also been advised that there will be no alcohol sold on the day at the stadium and there will also be no ticket sales prior to kick-off.

Should you not be making the journey, full match commentary will be available on iFollow Millwall from around 2.50pm. International subscribers can also watch the 90 minutes on iFollow. Click here for more details.

Match Reports

Onyedinma gives Birmingham the blues with late winner at St. Andrew's

Our report as The Lions win on the road once more...

17 February 2018

Millwall won on the road for a third successive Sky Bet Championship game as Fred Onyedinma's late winner secured all three points in a 1-0 victory at St. Andrew's against Birmingham City on Saturday afternoon.

A sometimes turgid affair lacked quality in stages, but substitute Onyedinma popped up with the winning strike on 77 minutes.

Boss Neil Harris made one change from last Friday's televised 1-1 draw with Cardiff City at The Den, as Shaun Williams returned to the starting XI at the expense of Ryan Tunnicliffe, who dropped to the bench.

The game was only two minutes old when Jeremie Boga struck a free-kick goalwards, but the ball just crept wide of Jordan Archer's near-side post.

On 13 minutes, neat passing play between Ben Marshall and Lee Gregory teed up Jed Wallace, but David Stockdale was equal to the winger's effort, tipping it behind for a corner-kick. Three consecutive corners followed, with the ball somehow staying out of the net at the third attempt as George Saville blasted towards goal.

Craig Gardner struck wide from distance with 20 minutes on the clock, whilst four minutes later, Saville's shot on the rebound agoninsingly snuck wide of the post.

As the half-hour mark came and went, The Lions' defence stood firm in the face of some slick Birmingham attacking, with the deluge eventually subsiding thanks to a high foot on Saville.

Gardner fired towards goal three minutes before the break, but a combination of Saville and Archer managed to steer the ball away from goal and behind.

A drab second-half suddenly sprung into life just before the hour-mark as the home side forced a succession of corners, but Millwall stood firm despite Birmingham's attempts to take the lead.

At the other end, Steve Morison found the side netting on 65 minutes as The Lions looked to gain a foothold, whilst Wallace, Morison and substitute Onyedinma looked to build pressure on The Blues' defence.

Harlee Dean cleared from under his own crossbar with 15 minutes remaining as Wallace attempted to turn the screw, whilst Jake Cooper's low volley found the arms of Stockdale from the resulting corner-kick.

On 77 minutes, Millwall nudged themselves in front as Onyedinma poked home at the second attempt for his first League goal of the campaign.

The Blues threw on Lucas Jutkiewicz in their efforts to get back into the game, but it was Millwall who almost had the opportunity to double their lead as Gregory looked to capitalise on Morison's lofted pass; however, a combination of Stockdale and a Birmingham defender cleared the ball to safety - colliding with each other in the process.

Gardner curled way over the crossbar with five minutes remaining, before Tim Cahill replaced Morison to a standing ovation from the 1,121 travelling fans.

On 88 minutes, Cooper connected perfectly with Shaun Williams' free-kick, but his header was superbly saved by Stockdale. Cahill then nodded to Shaun Hutchinson from the corner-kick that followed, but the defender headed wide.

Archer had to be on hand to tip a late Gardner free-kick away from goal, but that was the final action on an afternoon that saw The Lions grind out another success on the road.
