Preview | Barnsley v Millwall

Lions head north in search of club record...

16 March 2018

Millwall head to Barnsley this Saturday looking for a sixth consecutive Sky Bet Championship away win (kick-off 1pm).

The Lions have beaten Leeds United, Reading, Birmingham City, Burton Albion and Hull City in their last five away games and head to Oakwell looking to extend their unbeaten League run to 12 matches.

Aiden O'Brien may return to the fold after a period out through injury. The attacker completed an hour for the Under 23s in Monday's 1-1 draw with Queens Park Rangers and will look to force his way back into Neil Harris' thinking for the first time since the dramatic 4-3 victory at Elland Road in January.

Bryon Webster remains the club's only long-term absentee.

The two clubs have already met twice in 2017/18, both at The Den. The Tykes won the Sky Bet Championship meeting 3-1, but The Lions hit back in the Emirates FA Cup, winning 4-1 to advance to Round Four.

The duo will meet for the 58th time this weekend. Barnsley have been victorious in the last three matches at Oakwell, with Darius Henderson's hat-trick bagging Millwall their last win in S71 in January 2012.

Supporters travelling to Oakwell by train are reminded to please ensure they have their match ticket to hand or email confirmation to show staff if asked at the station.

If you cannot make the trip this Saturday, full match commentary will be available on iFollow Millwall from around 12.50pm. International subscribers can watch all the action from Oakwell on iFollow. Click here for more details.

Supporters are also advised to check their journey before they travel, with freezing temperatures and snow forecast across the country.

Lions equal club record with win at Barnsley

Our take from a snowy Oakwell...

17 March 2018

Goals from Lee Gregory and Ben Marshall earned Millwall a 2-0 victory at Barnsley in the Sky Bet Championship on Saturday afternoon.

The win at a bitterly cold Oakwell equals a club record of consecutive League away wins, set in 2008/9 and also stretches the club's unbeaten run to 12 matches.

Gregory pounced on some slack defending to give Millwall the lead midway through the first-half, before Marshall curled a beauty into the top corner after the hour to make the points secure.

Neil Harris made one change to his matchday squad, with Aiden O'Brien returning from injury to take his place on the substitutes' bench at the expense of Conor McLaughlin - the starting XI remained the same as last Saturday's 1-0 defeat of Brentford at The Den.

Millwall started fast and attacked down their right-hand side, but twice Liam Lindsay stopped Jed Wallace getting a cross into the box. Oliver McBurnie had The Tykes' first effort of the afternoon but it was blocked away for a corner-kick.

On 17 minutes, a lucky ricochet allowed Mamadou Thiam to cross, but Jake Cooper was well placed to turn the ball over the crossbar. The resulting corner was cleared away, with Kieffer Moore heading into the arms of Jordan Archer shortly after.

On 24 minutes, The Lions took the lead. Wallace pounced on some dodgy Barnsley defending and slid the ball into the path of Gregory, who poked home past Nick Townsend at the first attempt to open the scoring.

Soon after, Wallace fired a ball across the box, but to no avail. As the half-hour mark approached Gary Gardner let fly from distance, but his effort found the stand behind the goal. With 34 minutes on the clock Millwall could have doubled their lead, but after Gregory rounded Townsend, George Saville's shot went over the bar.

Ben Marshall's tame effort was saved and Lindsay headed over the bar in what should have been the final action of the first-half, but when more slack Tykes defending allowed Steve Morison in on goal, he somehow conspired to miss the ball completely, shooting at thin air.

The second-half was three minutes old when Barnsley had a chance to equalise, but Archer tipped Lindsay's shot around the post and behind. The Tykes had a further opportunity with 58 minutes on the clock, but the stopper was once more on hand to save from Moore's header.

On 63 minutes, The Lions doubled their lead in outstanding circumstances. Good work from Wallace saw the winger lay the ball into the path of Marshall - the Wolves loanee steadied himself before curling a beautiful effort into the top corner beyond the reach of Townsend.

Barnsley's attempts to get back into the game were thwarted by Archer once more, this time from substitute George Moncur, whilst Gregory's shot was saved by Townsend as Millwall looked for a third.

McBurnie looked to halve the deficit on 74 minutes, but Jake Cooper brilliantly raced back to hook the ball off the line, before Archer saved Thiam's powerful effort.

As a snowstorm engulfed Oakwell, The Lions held firm to secure the record and another three points on the road.

Barnsley: Townsend, Yiadom, Jackson, Lindsay (Isgrove 81'), Pinillos, Gardner, Potts (Bradshaw 66'), Mallan (Moncur 46'), Moore, Thiam, McBurnie. Subs not used: Walton, Cavare, Mahoney, Pearson.
