Millwall and Nottingham Forest head into EFL Cup Second Round action at The Den on Tuesday night on the back of dramatic weekend wins in their respective League fixtures.

The Lions had to wait until the 89th-minute before finally claiming maximum League One points with Steve Morison's last-gasp penalty securing a 2-1 success against Sheffield United.

At the City Ground it proved to be a real ding-dong affair for Forest, who for the second time this season edged a seven-goal thriller 4-3 courtesy of Thomas Lam's 90th-minute goal just four minutes after Wigan's Will Grigg had hauled The Latics back level at 3-3.

Tuesday night's EFL Cup tie will be the 65th meeting between Forest and Millwall - and there has been little to choose between the two teams down the years.

The Lions have beaten Forest 24 times in total, with 20 matches drawn and The Reds victorious in 20 games.

Millwall edge the stats in the League Cup with two wins, one draw and a solitary defeat whilst The Lions and Forest are level with one victory each in the FA Cup.

Steve Morison and Martyn Woolford were on target in a 2-2 draw at The Den on 3rd December 2013 that marked the beginning of a run that has seen Millwall unbeaten in four matches with Forest.

Since that December date, The Lions have tasted victory twice at the City Ground (2-1 and 1-0) either side of a 0-0 draw at The Den.

Neil Harris' charges are unbeaten in their last 11 matches on home soil.
