Millwall's game against Sheffield United at The Den this Saturday marks the 50th meeting between the two sides in all competitions.

There is very little to choose between the teams stats-wise, with The Lions recording 20 successes, just one behind The Blades, who have finished victorious on 21 occasions. The remaining eight matches have ended in draws.

Since their first competitive meeting way back in February 1895, all but three of the previous 49 fixtures have come in the League, including the two in League One last season when The Lions recorded a splendid win double.

Neil Harris' men will go into Saturday's match looking to make it four games unbeaten against United, having last tasted defeat against the team from South Yorkshire in a 1-0 home loss on 13th November 2010 when a strike from Andy Reid settled a tight game at The Den.

Millwall's last home match against The Blades was exactly five months ago to the day this Saturday, and it took just 90 seconds for debutant Chris Taylor to slam home the only goal of the game following his loan move from Blackburn Rovers just two days earlier.

Of The Lions starting XI in that game, nine players were in the team that faced Peterborough United in midweek, with a further three on the bench.

Taylor's goal completed a memorable double for The Lions in 2015/16, having already recorded a narrow 2-1 success at Bramall Lane the previous October thanks to a brace from Aiden O'Brien.
