Preview | Millwall v Sunderland

A snowy Saturday in store at The Den...

3 March 2018

Millwall return to The Den on Saturday afternoon as they take on Sunderland in the Sky Bet Championship (kick-off 3pm).

Following on from last Saturday's 1-0 victory at Burton Albion, The Lions take their eight-game unbeaten run into the visit of The Black Cats, who themselves need the points in an attempt to stave off back-to-back relegations.

Millwall boss Neil Harris can call upon the same squad for the fourth game running, with Aiden O'Brien back in training ahead of a potential return in due course.

The two clubs will meet for the 38th time this weekend, with The Lions looking to go within one of the all-time score; Sunderland have won 15 times to Millwall's 13.

The last meeting - the first between both for 13 years - saw George Saville net two free-kicks in a 2-2 draw at the Stadium of Light. Ex-Lion Lewis Grabban gave The Mackems the lead, but Saville turned the game on its head in the space of four minutes. Adam Matthews' freak second-half strike, however, secured a share of the spoils.

The last time the two did battle in SE16, current assistant manager David Livermore was on target in a televised 2-0 victory - Dennis Wise scored the other goal from the penalty spot.

Saturday's game is set to go ahead, with the club advising supporters to check their journey before they travel due to this week's adverse weather.

Please be aware of train delays and cancellations, icy roads and slippery footpaths on your way to The Den. Should there be any change in circumstances, please check the official website and the club's social media channels for further announcements.

Prior to kick-off, a bucket collection will take place for Millwall Lionesses around the ground, so dig deep and support Lee Burch's side, who are currently over one year unbeaten in the League!

Zampa's Family Fun Zone also returns this Saturday! Between 1-2pm in the Lions Centre, Millwall Community Trust, families from both Millwall and Sunderland can enjoy FREE activities, such as a Bouncy Castle, Badge Making, Table Tennis and Arts & Crafts, whilst MCT staff will be delivering a mini skills session.

Fred Onyedinma features on the front of this weekend's matchday programme, which includes an interview with the attacker, plus all the usual stats, facts and chats inside. Pick a copy up around the ground for just £3.

Should you be unable to make it to The Den this weekend - or should you not wish to brave the 'Beast from the East'! - then full match commentary will be available on iFollow Millwall from around 2.50pm. International subscribers can watch all the action from SE16 on iFollow. Click here for more details.

Lions and Mackems share the spoils in entertaining encounter

Our report from The Den...

3 March 2018

Shaun Hutchinson's second goal of the season earned Millwall a 1-1 draw with Sunderland in the Sky Bet Championship at The Den on Saturday afternoon.

Bryan Oviedo's stunning strike put The Black Cats in front just before the half-time break, but Hutchinson scrambled the ball across the line in the second-half to stretch The Lions' unbeaten run to nine matches.

Millwall boss Neil Harris kept his starting XI and substitutes the same for the fourth game running.

Six minutes in The Lions could have taken the lead, but Jake Cooper's free header on the edge of the six-yard box was cleared off the line by Lee Cattermole.

Millwall were effectively using the width of the Den pitch and swinging crosses into the penalty area, but Sunderland's rigid back five were dealing with matters as the halfway point of the first-half approached.

Adam Matthews flashed a ball across the face of the Millwall box on 17 minutes, but despite a glut of bodies being placed inside the six-yard box, no boot was available to tap the ball home. Callum McManaman blazed over eight minutes later.

On 29 minutes, The Black Cats took the lead through a stunning strike by Oviedo. A corner-kick was taken short and passed to the Costa Rican, who jinked his way past one Millwall player before unleashing an unstoppable effort into the top corner.

Shaun Williams forced Jason Steele into a smart stop on 39 minutes, whilst two minutes later Steve Morison headed Ben Marshall's deep cross wide of the post.

The second-half was nearly two minutes old when The Lions had a chance to level, but Lee Gregory's left-footed shot was tame and rolled into the arms of Steele, whilst with 50 minutes on the clock, Millwall had a shout for a penalty turned down after Marshall tumbled in the box.

With The Lions on top and the home crowd behind them, Gregory's looping header looked to be creeping in the top corner, but Steele produced a strong hand to turn the ball over the crossbar.

On 68 minutes, with The Den at fever pitch, Morison looked to slam a volley into the net from Wallace's cross, but Steele saved well. However, from the resulting corner, a scramble ended with Hutchinson poking his second goal of the season just across the goal-line.

Millwall continued to huff, puff and dominate the second-half, but were unable to find the goal that would put them in front. In a rare Sunderland attacking foray, Ashley Fletcher fired across the box, but to no avail.

Morison sliced over the crossbar with two minutes remaining and The Lions continued to attack in five minutes of stoppage-time, but referee Andy Davies blew his whistle to end an entertaining afternoon with the sides level.
