Preview | Millwall v Preston North End

Lions return to The Den...

22 February 2019

Millwall are back at The Den on Saturday afternoon as The Lions take on Preston North End in the Sky Bet Championship (kick-off 3pm).

With seven wins in 12 matches and four clean sheets in five to their name, Neil Harris' side welcome The Lilywhites in good form, and will look to push further away from the relegation zone in the League ahead of the final two months of the season.

Harris has no fresh injury worries after Wednesday night's 1-0 win at Derby County, meaning that Conor McLaughlin and Tom Bradshaw remain the only long-term absentees. Alex Pearce will be available once again after missing the trip to Pride Park under the terms of his loan agreement.

Tickets for Saturday's game will be on sale up until kick-off, but if you are unable to make it to The Den, then full match commentary will be available on iFollow Millwall, with coverage starting at around 2.50pm. International subscribers, meanwhile, can watch all the action from SE16 on iFollow. Click here for more details.

Millwall's Family Fun Zone returns this weekend! From 1-2pm, in the Lions Centre next door to The Den, families from both sets of supporters can enjoy FREE fun. Click here to find out more.

Furthermore, the SE16 Bar will be open from around 1.30pm, with a DJ present - with the weather expected to be warm for this time of the year, don't miss out on the opportunity to have a drink in the sunshine!

Mahlon Romeo is the cover star on this Saturday's matchday programme, which continues to commemorate the club's 25 years at The 'new' Den. An interview with the right-back is inside, whilst we also speak to Paul Robinson as the 2009/10 campaign comes into focus - a year that ended with The Lions gaining redemption by righting the wrongs of the prevoius season in winning the Play-Off Final at Wembley Stadium.

Huski Chocolate will be trialling their hot chocolate product in various areas of the stadium on Saturday (Junior Lions stand, Kiosk 11 and a tent by the SE16 Bar), with FREE samples available underneath the tent.

Match Reports

Lions lose at home to Preston

Report from The Den...

23 February 2019

Three first-half goals did the damage at The Den on Saturday afternoon as Millwall were defeated 3-1 by Preston North End in the Sky Bet Championship.

Andrew Hughes, Tom Clarke and Sean Maguire all found the net inside the opening half-hour to put North End three to the good, and despite substitute Ben Thompson's second-half goal - near enough his first touch after stepping off the bench - and a spirited and much-improved performance, any comeback was not to be.

Millwall boss Neil Harris made one change from Wednesday night's victory over Derby County, as Tom Elliott returned for his first start since 12th January in place of Shane Ferguson, who dropped to the bench - a place which Alex Pearce returned to after missing the midweek trip.

The first chance of the game came just two minutes in and went the way of Preston. A cross found the unmarked Tom Barkhuizen at the back post, but Murray Wallace was well placed to block the shot behind.

Unfortunately, just a minute later, North End were to find the net and open the scoring, as a ball into the box was controlled and fired home by Hughes.

The visitors continued to come forward and nearly found a second with just eight minutes on the clock, but Alan Browne's shot sailed over Jordan Archer's crossbar. Millwall's first foray into the box came on 10 minutes, but Mahlon Romeo's cross evaded everyone.

Romeo had to be on hand to block a Maguire effort as North End's good start continued, but the lead was doubled on 16 minutes after slack defending allowed a Paul Gallagher corner to bounce across the penalty area to the awaiting Clarke, who nodded home.

On 27 minutes matters got worse for Millwall, as a lucky deflection saw the ball bounce into the path of Maguire, who made no mistake in lifting the ball over Archer from inside the penalty area.

Despite their three-goal advantage the visitors were still attacking, and if not for a block on the edge of the area, Brad Potts may well have made it four seven minutes from the half-time break.

Two changes were made at half-time, with Tom Elliott and Murray Wallace replaced by Steve Morison and Ferguson, with the first chance of the second-half falling to Jake Cooper, but he nodded Ryan Leonard's corner back across goal.

The Lions were much better in the opening stages of the second period and almost found a way to goal on 59 minutes, but Ferguson's shot crept wide. At the other end, meanwhile, Potts forced Archer into a save.

Harris then brought on Thompson for Leonard, with the midfielder's first action of the game to be to slam the ball into the net from close range, reducing the arrears on 67 minutes. The home support's tails were now up, and Jed Wallace's driven shot into the arms of Declan Rudd on 70 minutes brought a roar - but the next goal should have come from Preston after Gallagher beat Romeo on the right-hand side; Maguire, however, sliced his effort.

With 15 minutes remaining Jed Wallace found his way into the box, but chose to shoot - wide - instead of crossing for the awaiting Gregory. The ball was in the Preston net once more with 10 minutes remaining, but Thompson's potential second goal was correctly ruled out for offside - albeit with an extremely late flag.

Millwall kept peppering the Preston defence and almost brought the deficit to one with six minutes to go, but after Jed Wallace's long-ranger shot was parried, Gregory's follow-up went wide.

Throughout five minutes of injury time Millwall continued to plug away in their attempts to get back into the game, but could not find a way to goal, suffering a first home defeat since Blackburn Rovers won all three points in early January.
