Preview: Wolves v Millwall

1 May 2015

A look ahead to Saturday's game at Molineux

Millwall's five-year spell in the Championship draws to a close this Saturday when Neil Harris and his side look to disappoint a few familiar faces at Molineux.

Former Lions managerial duo Kenny Jackett and Joe Gallen - now in charge at Wolves - will be looking to oversee a win which would keep them in the hunt for a Play-Off spot, though results elsewhere will also have to go in their favour if they are to have the chance of promotion this month.

Millwall's relegation to League One was confirmed earlier this week but Harris, whose appointment as permanent boss was confirmed on Wednesday, insists that his squad still have plenty to play for in the final match of the 2014/15 campaign.

What the managers say

Neil Harris: "Nothing changes for us. We will be physical, we will be exciting, we will have pace in the team and we will certainly be aggressive. What are they playing for, my players? They are playing for the club, they are playing for me and, most importantly, they are playing for each other." Read more from Harris by clicking here and here.

Kenny Jackett: "If by good fortune results go for us around the country and that is opening is there, we want to be in that position if teams slip up. If there is a mathematical chance of us getting into the Play-Offs - we have to keep our end of the bargain. If that's not the case then I still want to finish the season strongly."

Team news

Millwall can welcome back midfielder Ed Upson following a three-match suspension while Mark Beevers, who missed the draw with Derby County, could return after illness.

Shaun Cummings (groin) will be assessed but Shaun Williams (foot) is missing, as is long-term absentee Carlos Edwards (knee).

Wolves will be without centre-back Danny Batth, who has a foot injury.

Head-to-head

Saturday's match marks the 41st meeting between Wolves and Millwall and it is the former who hold the head-to-head advantage with 19 wins to 11 for The Lions in all competitions.

The most recent encounter took place back in October when Millwall came from 3-0 down to draw 3-3 at The Den.

The Lions will be looking for a third straight League win at Molineux after victories in 2005 (2-1) and 2012 (1-0).
