Preview | Millwall v Stoke City

Lions to mark Remembrance Day at The Den

25 October 2019

Millwall welcome Stoke City to The Den in the Sky Bet Championship on Saturday afternoon (kick-off 3pm).

Following Tuesday night's 2-2 draw with Cardiff City, The Lions enter a new era at The Den, with Gary Rowett taking charge for the first time against The Potters.

The manager has no fresh injury worries after the midweek match, with Ryan Leonard and Frank Fielding still out. Jiri Skalak has featured for the Under 23s in recent times, but this game should come too soon for the Czech.

With the home game against Charlton Athletic on Saturday 9th November designated as The Lions' annual 'Jimmy's Day', Millwall will mark Remembrance Day against Nathan Jones' side. The club is welcoming army and navy personnel as special guests this weekend, with soldiers pitchside ahead of kick-off against The Potters. For a full rundown on all pre-match activities, please click here.

Bucket collections for the British Legion Poppy Appeal will be held around the ground before kick-off, so dig deep! Poppy badges will also be on sale in different locations around the stadium. They promise to sell fast, though, so be quick and don't miss out!

Millwall will also wear poppies on their shirts for the game, after which all match-worn kits will be auctioned in order to raise more money for the British Legion Poppy Appeal.

Tickets for the fixture will be on sale up until kick-off, but if you are unable to attend, then full match commentary will be available on iFollow Millwall, with coverage starting around 2.50pm. International subscribers will also be able to watch all the action from The Den on iFollow. Click here for full details.

The SE16 Bar will be open from 1.30pm, with local band The Deptford Rascals playing live music up until kick-off - so if you fancy a pre-match pint, it's the place to be!

Millwall's Halloween themed Family Fun Zone will also be open from 1-2pm - for FREE fun, please click here.

Match Reports

Lions victorious as The Den remembers

Our take on Gary Rowett's first Lions match...

26 October 2019

The Gary Rowett era began in perfect fashion on Saturday afternoon as Millwall were 2-0 winners over Stoke City in the Sky Bet Championship at The Den.

Ben Thompson's first goal of the season opened the scoring in the first-half, before a thunderous Jed Wallace penalty put Millwall two to the good with 15 minutes remaining.

Rowett opted to start Tom Bradshaw in a lone striker role against The Potters, with Jed Wallace, Thompson and Shane Ferguson behind. Jayson Molumby and Shaun Williams anchored the midfield, whilst Mahlon Romeo, Shaun Hutchinson, Jake Cooper and Murray Wallace sat in front of Bartosz Bialkowski.

After the Remembrance commemorations were wrapped up, The Lions spent the first 10 minutes playing the better football, but their final ball was lacking, leading to Adam Federici being untested.

With 16 minutes played Millwall had their first effort on goal, but Jed Wallace's curler crept just beyond the far post of Federici. Romeo then beat his marker and looked to cross, but the stopper gathered.

Jed's namesake, Murray, then had a go with his weaker right foot from 20 yards out, but that too went the wrong side of Federici's goal.

After a spell of Stoke possession was endured - without Bialkowski being tested - The Lions took the lead on 28 minutes as, after Jed Wallace's cross was fizzed in, Thompson finished on the volley from around 15 yards out for his first goal of the season.

Shortly after the half-hour mark, with The Lions largely dominant, the ball broke to captain Hutchinson inside the box, but wouldn't drop in time for the defender to power a header towards goal, with a combination of the Stoke back-line and Federici crowding him out. The Potters' first real effort on goal came on 36 minutes, but Badou Ndiaye's attempt was well wide.

There were 52 minutes played when Jed Wallace broke through the Stoke defence and flashed a shot across goal, but Federici - certainly the busier of the two goalkeepers - tipped it wide, with the resulting corner-kick coming to nothing.

Just before the clock struck 60 minutes, a familiar sight at The Den over the last five years almost reared its head once more, but after the ball dropped at the feet of Lee Gregory, Hutchinson's outstanding challenge prevented the forward from slamming home from just a few yards out.

The Potters were now having a spell of pressure on the Millwall goal, with Tom Ince at the heart, but Bialkowski remained relatively untroubled - and a superb lung-busting run from Molumby to chase the ball all the way back to Federici in the 70th minute received applause from the Lions faithful.

With 73 minutes played, Millwall - in particular Jed Wallace - won a penalty after his run down the right-hand side was finally halted inside the area, despite Stoke's best attempts to illegally do so numerous times. The winger picked himself up and thumped his effort past Federici, who had no chance, to double the lead.

There were nine minutes remaining when Molumby - who had bossed the game from start to finish - looked to cap his performance with a goal, but his effort went slightly over the crossbar.

From there, Millwall saw the game out comfortably, securing three points that does their chances in the Sky Bet Championship no harm at all.
