21 April 2015

Read our guide to Tuesday night's game at Ewood Park

Millwall could move to within a point of the Championship safety zone with a win over Blackburn Rovers at Ewood Park on Tuesday night (7.45pm).

Saturday's 0-0 draw with Cardiff City continued the momentum under interim boss Neil Harris and ensured The Lions go into the final three matches of the season with a fighting chance of Championship survival.

Blackburn sit 9th and go into Tuesday night's game on the back of three consecutive draws; the latest a thrilling 3-3 with Nottingham Forest on Saturday.

Team news

With games coming thick and fast Neil Harris may be tempted to shuffle his pack at Ewood Park.

Ricardo Fuller made an impact off the bench at the Cardiff City Stadium while Magaye Gueye and Paris Cowan-Hall will also hope for some involvement.

Shaun Williams (foot) and Shaun Cummings (groin) are sidelined, while Ed Upson serves the second match of a three-game suspension.

Carlos Edwards (knee) remains a long-term absentee.

Blackburn could still be without Jason Lowe (foot), Shane Duffy (knee), Grant Hanley (calf), Alex Baptiste (hamstring), Josh King (hamstring) and David Dunn (calf).

Head-to-head

Tuesday night's match marks the 40th meeting between Blackburn and Millwall and it is Rovers who have fared better in the fixture over the years.

The Ewood Park club have won 19 of the previous 39 meetings compared to 10 for The Lions, with the remaining 10 ending all-square.

Blackburn were victorious the last time the two sides met at Ewood Park, winning 3-2 in December 2013. The reverse fixture earlier this season ended 2-2 at The Den courtesy of a late equaliser from Shaun Williams.
