Lions v Boro down the years
Saturday's fixture will mark the 48th match Millwall have played against Middlesbrough. The Lions have won 17 of the previous 47 meetings to Boro's 19. Eleven matches have finished all square.
Although Boro have enjoyed the greater success overall, the balance has tipped Millwall's way in the most recent of matches, winning two of the last four encounters, drawing one and losing the other fixture. The Lions completed the double over Boro last season - the first time we won home and away against the Teesiders since the 1967/8 season!
In all competitions, this will be the 25th meeting between the two teams at The Den, both old and new, with Millwall winning 13 to Boro's five successes and the other six fixtures drawn.
