Keeper Steve previews Saturday's Hillsborough clash

After Tuesday night's first win of the season away at Peterbourough The Lions travel to Hillsbourough on Saturday to play newly promoted Sheffield Wednesday.
Millwall keeper and budding journo Steve Mildenhall looks forward to the game.
The Owls have started their first season back in the second tier with wins against Oldham in the Capital One Cup and Birmingham City in the first home game on Tuesday night and a draw on the opening day of the season away at Derby which has extended there unbeaten run of games to 15.
Kenny Jackett's men will also be in a bouyant mood after their first victory of the season last Tuesday. The same squad of 19 is likely to travel to South Yorkshire with Jack Smith still sidelined with a thigh strain.
Tam Mkandawire and captain Paul Robinson are both back in full training but are not ready for first team duty just yet.
The last time the two sides met at Hillsborough was in the Championship season of 2005/6 when The Lions came away with the points, beating The Owls 2-1. In the previous 38 meetings it's honours even, with both Millwall and Wednesdsay winning 14 each and 10 draws.
Millwall squad; M.Taylor, Dunne, Malone, Abdou, Osborne, Lowry, Wright, Trotter, Henderson, Keogh, Henry, Forde, Shittu, Racon, Marquis, Batt, Feeney, C.Taylor, Ward.
