Preview | Brentford v Millwall

Lions on the road...

2 November 2018

Millwall face Brentford in a London derby at Griffin Park on Saturday afternoon (kick-off 3pm).

The Lions are currently in the midst of a four-game winning run at home, but are without an away victory in 2018/19, despite recent performances at Nottingham Forest and Reading warranting more than the one point from six gained.

Brentford, meanwhile, are winless in nine in all competitions and have slipped down the League table to 16th place, despite a strong start under the now-departed Dean Smith.

Neil Harris may opt to name an unchanged squad from that which defeated Ipswich Town 3-0 at The Den last weekend, with Jed Wallace doubtful once more. Shaun Hutchinson returned to the fold against The Tractor Boys and will hope to feature in the heart of the defence once more.

The Lions' allocation for the visit to West London is SOLD OUT, with no tickets available to purchase on the day. If you were unable to secure a spot inside Griffin Park, full match commentary will be available on iFollow Millwall from around 2.50pm, whilst international subscribers can watch all the action on iFollow as well.

Lions fans travelling to Griffin Park this weekend are advised to check their journey before they leave, with issues expected in the area. 

There are currently weekend closures of the A4, in both directions, between Clayponds Avenue and Ealing Road. There is also one lane closed Eastbound between Boston Manor Road and Ealing Road. These closures will affect travel to the game.

To get to Griffin Park, supporters heading East down the M4 are advised to come off at Junction 3 and use the A312 and A4, bearing in mind there may be more traffic than usual on this route. Those supporters using the North Circular or A4 from North/Central London should exit at the Chiswick Roundabout and use the South Circular and A315 to approach Griffin Park via the Ealing Roundabout.

There has also been a change to the Brook Road South Controlled Parking Zone (CPZ) around Griffin Park. The midweek restrictions on parking are now in place from 10am-12 noon and 6pm-8pm. There is no change to the Saturday matchday restrictions which are in place between 2.30-3.30pm on home Brentford match days.

Furthermore, train strikes mean that NO trains from London Waterloo will stop at Brentford. Click here for further details.

Lions lose on the road at Griffin Park

Our take on the action from Brentford...

3 November 2018

Millwall's woes on the road continued at Griffin Park on Saturday afternoon as Brentford defeated a below-par Lions side 2-0.

Sergi Canos gave The Bees the lead shortly into the second-half and, with Millwall pushing for the equaliser, substitute Ollie Watkins calmly finished past Ben Amos to secure all three points.

Millwall boss Neil Harris made one change to the squad which defeated Ipswich Town 3-0 at The Den last weekend, as Jed Wallace returned from injury to replace Conor McLaughlin.

The opening exchanges were evenly contested with little in the way of goalmouth action, despite the home side forcing three corners inside the first 10 minutes.

The Lions registered their first chance on goal with 13 minutes on the clock, but Tom Elliott headed over from Mahlon Romeo's long-ball forward. Shaun Williams then sent Lee Gregory away and behind the Brentford defence, but the ball skipped into the arms of Bees goalkeeper Daniel Bentley.

On 20 minutes Murray Wallace crossed into the path of Jake Cooper, with his knock-down finding Romeo, but his shot was blocked over the crossbar. From the resulting corner-kick Shaun Hutchinson powered a header towards goal, but Bentley tipped his effort over. Moses Odubajo then found the travelling contingent from outside the penalty area.

As seen in previous matches at Championship level, the insistence for the opposition to play out from the back was being lapped up by The Lions, and it nearly lead to the opening goal on 26 minutes, but Cooper agonisingly nodded wide from Murray Wallace's cross.

The closest either side had come to breaking the deadlock, however, arrived on 28 minutes as Said Benrahma curled a stunning effort on to the crossbar, luckily bouncing away from danger.

Benrahma attempted to recreate his earlier shot minutes later but curled wide, before Elliott glanced the wrong side of the post four minutes before the half-time break.

The Lions came out fighting at the beginning of the second half with Skalak crossing for Ryan Leonard, but the midfielder headed wide. On 48 minutes, however, The Bees prodded themselves in front as Canos beat the offside trap to slot past Amos.

The home side's tails were up and Benrahma crossed dangerously with 52 minutes on the clock, but the onrushing Neal Maupay was unable to turn the ball home.

The introduction of Steve Morison on the hour-mark gave The Lions fresh impetus and after Gregory was played in by the substitute it looked as though the equaliser would follow, but the striker scuffed behind.

Jed Wallace, a 64th-minute replacement for Skalak, was involved in Millwall's attacking play as time ticked on, but the most they could muster was a free-kick over the bar and a shot wide.

With 72 minutes on the clock a Brentford corner looked to have given them home side a two-goal lead, but Maupay's header from close range crashed back off the crossbar. Shane Ferguson's inviting cross then found the sliding Gregory at the back post, but the striker was just unable to get a full connection on the ball.

The introduction of Tom Bradshaw meant Millwall were top-heavy going into the final 10 minutes, with Gregory turning and shooting towards goal, but the Brentford defence ensured the ball trickled into the arms of a grateful Bentley. Maupay then flashed a shot across goal for the home side, but it went wide.

Five minutes from time, it was two. Millwall were caught in possession and a quick and slick passing move between Maupay and substitute Watkins ended with a calm finish past Amos.
