Preview | Millwall v Aston Villa

Lions wrap up their campaign at The Den...

4 May 2018

Millwall complete their 2017/18 Sky Bet Championship campaign at The Den on Sunday afternoon as they take on Aston Villa (kick-off 12.30pm).

The Lions' Play-Off hopes are all but over after two consecutive defeats to fellow promotion rivals Fulham and Middlesbrough, but a season that has defied all odds will be celebrated as Steve Bruce's men - already qualified for the Play-Offs - visit SE16.

Manager Neil Harris may be forced to reshuffle his pack at the weekend, with Mahlon Romeo and Ben Marshall having to withdraw during last Saturday's defeat to Boro and George Saville missing out completely, whilst others have been "carrying knocks for a few weeks," according to the boss.

The two clubs will meet for the 33rd time on Sunday, with Millwall looking for a ninth win over Villa historically. A goalless draw was played out at Villa Park in December, but The Lions have won their last five home matches against their opponents in all competitions - most notably a 2-1 FA Cup Fourth Round victory in January 2013, where John Marquis headed home a last-minute winner.

Sunday's game is SOLD OUT, with no further tickets being made available for sale. The main Ticket Office in the Barry Kitchener Stand will be closed on Saturday, but will open from 9.30am on Sunday morning for supporters wishing to collect their tickets. The club strongly advises fans to arrive early to prevent lengthy queues building before kick-off. There will also be a DJ outside the SE16 Bar prior to kick-off.

After the game, the club asks that you stay in your seats and give the squad that have given supporters many moments to remember in 2017/18 a chance to undertake a well-deserved lap of honour.

MSC 2017/18 Player of the Year Shaun Hutchinson features on the cover of the final matchday programme of the season. Priced just £3, all the usual stats, facts and features are inside. Pick one up around the ground prior to kick-off.

On Sunday there is major engineering works affecting the railway lines into London Bridge Station. There are no Southern services to and from New Cross Gate and the services to and from South Bermondsey are reduced. The normal special service provided for supporters in such instances will not run. Other services will only be formed of four coaches.

If you were unable to secure a ticket for Sunday's game or cannot make it, full match commentary will be available on iFollow Millwall from around 12.25pm. International subscribers can watch all the action on iFollow. Click here for more details.

Williams on the spot as Lions sign off with victory

Final day of the season at The Den...

6 May 2018

Shaun Williams' second goal of the season secured victory for Millwall in their final game of the Sky Bet Championship season against Aston Villa at The Den on Sunday afternoon.

The midfielder struck on the half-hour mark after Ryan Tunnicliffe was fouled, whilst Lee Gregory also had a late spot-kick saved.

Millwall boss Neil Harris made two changes to his starting line-up from last Saturday's 2-0 defeat at Middlesbrough, with Fred Onyedinma and Aiden O'Brien replacing the injured Mahlon Romeo and Gregory.

Ben Marshall reverted to right-back, whilst O'Brien took his place on the left wing and Onyedinma partnered Steve Morison in attack.

The first opportunity of the afternoon came on seven minutes and went the way of The Lions, but Jed Wallace could not prod Onyedinma's cross home following good work from the frontman and O'Brien. Johnathan Kodija blasted Villa's opening attempt well wide.

On 16 minutes O'Brien nearly fooled Mark Bunn with a cross that quickly became a shot, but the stopper was equal to it, tipping the ball over the crossbar. Marshall blazed over from the resulting corner-kick.

The visitors threatened for the first time just moments later but 2017/18 Player of the Year Shaun Hutchinson was on hand once more to make a superb block from Albert Adomah's shot - a follow-up was cleared to safety.

Smart play from Wallace and Morison set up Onyedinma shortly after the midway point of the first half, but the cross was blocked with the former waiting inside the penalty area.

On the half-hour mark The Lions were awarded a penalty after Ryan Tunnicliffe was pulled down inside the box. Williams stepped up to confidently strike home his second goal of the season to open the scoring.

Villa looked to level straight away and nearly did so through Josh Onomah, but Jordan Archer was equal to the attempt low down.

Five minutes into the second half Millwall looked to double their lead, but goal-scorer Williams nodded slightly over from Marshall's corner. Onyedinma really should have done better on 53 minutes, but after latching on to Morison's through-ball the attacker got his attempt horribly wrong.

Onomah fizzed an effort over the crossbar moments after that, whilst Conor Hourihane flashed a shot wide shortly after the 60-minute mark.

Onyedinma was just caught offside as he looked to bear down on goal via Williams' superb ball over the top on 66 minutes, but it was Villa who almost notched the second goal of the game at the other end - however, Archer tipped James Bree's shot around the post.

Steve Bruce executed a triple substitution 15 minutes from time as he looked for a way back into the match. Hourihane struck into the arms of Archer from distance following that, whilst substitute Shane Ferguson brilliantly threw his body on the line to block fellow sub Jack Grealish's close-range shot.

Five minutes from time The Lions were awarded another penalty, this time for handball as Onyedinma looked to steer the ball towards goal. Lee Gregory stepped up and struck well, but Bunn saved. The goalkeeper also incredibly saved the rebound before Morison failed to convert a third attempt.

After a period of stoppage-time the whistle was blown on Millwall's remarkable first campaign back in The Championship - and what a season it was!
