Preview | Sunderland v Millwall

A look ahead to Saturday's Championship meeting...

16 November 2017

Millwall return to Sky Bet Championship action this Saturday afternoon as they take on Sunderland at the Stadium of Light (kick-off 3pm).

Following November's international break, The Lions head north to take on a Black Cats side struggling at the wrong end of The Championship table following relegation from the Premier League last season.

Millwall will look to register their first away win of the campaign, whilst managerless Sunderland are seeking a first home win in 2017.

Neil Harris will be unable to call on the services of Jed Wallace this weekend, as the winger starts his three-match suspension following his red card in the 1-0 defeat to Burton Albion at The Den last time out.

Shaun Williams and Byron Webster remain the only other absentees in an otherwise fully-fit squad.

Saturday's meeting will be the 37th between the two, with Sunderland slightly holding the upper hand, with 15 wins to Millwall's 13. 

The last meeting was on Bonfire Night in 2005, as a penalty from Dennis Wise and a goal from assistant manager David Livermore gave The Lions a televised 2-0 victory.

Kevin Muscat turned the ball into his own net in the last game on Wearside earlier that season, but Millwall fared better the previous year, as Noel Whelan scored the only goal in a 1-0 win at the Stadium of Light.

Of course, no mention of Sunderland can go by without mentioning 4th April 2004 - Tim Cahill's goal sent The Lions through to their first-ever FA Cup Final in a 1-0 success at Old Trafford.

Around 1,500 fans will back the boys in the north east, but if you aren't making the long journey, full match commentary will be available on iFollow Millwall from around 2.50pm. Overseas subscribers, meanwhile, can watch the action LIVE on iFollow. Click here for more details.

Saville double secures Sunderland point for Millwall

Our take on events at the Stadium of Light...

18 November 2017

George Saville's double ensured The Lions drew 2-2 with Sunderland at the Stadium of Light in the Sky Bet Championship on Saturday afternoon.

In a sometimes bizarre and error-strewn encounter, Saville scored his duo between strikes from Lewis Grabban and Adam Matthews as the two sides played out a stalemate.

Millwall boss Neil Harris made three changes from the 1-0 defeat to Burton Albion last time out, with Shane Ferguson, Jake Cooper and Tom Elliott replacing the suspended Jed Wallace, Tony Craig and Steve Morison.

The home side started the brighter and could have taken the lead in the first few minutes, but John O'Shea was just unable to reach a cross when unmarked in the penalty area.

The Lions, however, picked up the pace shortly after that and went close through Conor McLaughlin and Ryan Tunnicliffe. Elliott also headed into the arms of Robbin Ruiter.

On 10 minutes, Jordan Archer was called into action for the first time as he tipped Aiden McGeady's effort behind for a corner-kick. From the resulting kick, however, The Black Cats took the lead as Grabban pounced on some slack defending to fire home from close-range.

With 17 minutes on the clock, The Lions got back in the game through Saville's free-kick, which squirmed under the body of Ruiter and into the net.

Incredibly, just three minutes later, Ruiter again let a seemingly routine Saville free-kick sail past him and into the net to give Millwall the lead.

As the boos rang out around the Stadium of Light, Sunderland rightly had a penalty appeal turned down after James Meredith perfectly executed a tackle on Duncan Watmore inside the penalty area. Seconds later at the other end, Elliott had a chance to extend Millwall's lead, but fired over when he had more time than he thought.

The Black Cats had another penalty shout turned down shortly before half-time as substitute Callum McManaman stumbled under pressure from Saville, whilst the Lions midfielder struck wide at the other end as he seeked his hat-trick goal.

In a game littered with goalkeeping errors, Sunderland equalised straight away in the second half as Matthews' cross was flapped at by Archer before falling into the net.

The home side had a goal ruled out on 52 minutes, whilst McLaughlin was forced to make a vital interception as The Black Cats upped the ante in search of a third.

With 72 minutes on the clock, Lee Gregory's shot on the turn looked destined for the back of the net, but Ruiter was well-placed to stick out a hand and block the ball. Ferguson also fired wide as The Lions looked to gain a foothold once more.

Five minutes from time, a cross rolled seemingly in slow motion across the Millwall box, but there was no Sunderland man there to tap home.

A frantic final period ensued, but with no further goals, the points were shared.

Sunderland: Ruiter, Oviedo, McNair, Cattermole, Williams (Honeyman 16'), Grabban, Watmore (McManaman 42'), O'Shea, McGeady, Matthews, Wilson (Browning 83'). Subs not used: Steele, Rodwell, Vaughan, Gibson.
