Millwall v Forest in numbers

3 December 2013

Lions seek fifth win in last eight at The Den

Head-to-head

Steve Lomas' men will be looking to bounce back from Saturday's 3-0 defeat away to Leicester City with a win against Nottingham Forest, themselves on the back of a loss against Reading.

Billy Davies' men took all three points when the two sides last met here back in April (1-0), but Forest have failed to score in five of the last seven League games at The Den, a run stretching back to 2004/5 during which Millwall have won four with the other two games ending in draws.

The Lions' last victory over Forest at The Den came in August 2011 (pictured) when goals from Liam Trotter and Darius Henderson, now with the City Ground club, secured a 2-0 victory.

In all competitions, Millwall have won 22 to Forest's 20 in 60 previous encounters, including 19 in the League. The most recent meeting between the two sides was back in August when Jamaal Lascelles' extra-time winner saw The Lions exit the Capital One Cup at the Second Round stage.

2013/14 in numbers

Nottingham Forest head into the game with a vastly superior goal difference to Millwall so far this season.

The three conceded at Leicester on Saturday took Millwall's total to 34, an average of two per game, whilst The Reds have conceded 20, an average of 1.17, with five clean sheets to The Lions' three.

At the other end, Steve Lomas' side have scored 19 goals to Forest's 26, averages of 1.1 and 1.5 per game respectively. Forest have also seen 49% of their shots hit the target, compared to 37% for The Lions.
