Some like it hot

17 August 2012

..but not necessarily the players!

It promises to be a sizzling summer's day (at long last) on Saturday as Millwall kick-off their Championship campaign against last season's Play-Off runners-up Blackpool at The Den.
Ironically, the two sides met in the final match of the league season back in May, and fans were treated to a cracking game which finished 2-2.
Lions boss Kenny Jackett believes Blackpool will again be amongst the promotion front-runners this time round and is under no illusions about the task facing his side.
"I felt Blackpool were probably the better team in the Play-Off final against West Ham and were unfortunate not to win that game.
This match will be an early benchmark for us to see where we are in terms of our progress as a Championship outfit.
I'm really looking forward to this game. Blackpool are an excellent passing side and will no doubt enjoy plenty of possesion. We will have to be patient when we don't have the ball and ensure we make good use of it when we have possession ourselves."
The Millwall squad will be boosted by the return of David Forde and Andy Keogh from international duty, but Paul Robinson and Tam Mkandawire remain sidelined.
