All you need to know about Sunday's gameMillwall return to action aiming to secure a first win 'double' of the League One campaign when Port Vale visit The Den this Sunday (3pm).
The Lions ran out 2-0 victors at Vale Park when the two sides last locked horns back in September 2015 with goals from Mark Beevers and sub Lee Gregory clinching maximum points for Neil Harris' men.
Shaun Williams was on target on 28th November when Harris' men last won in SE16 with a 1-0 victory over Bury, and it was ironically Williams who was the match-winner earlier in the season against Peterborough United, bringing an end to a similar run of results by The Lions.
Port Vale have picked up six points from their last two matches and, like Millwall, have designs on pushing into the Play-Off places in the second half of the season.
Rob Page's Valiants seem to have put a sticky spell behind them during which they lost four out of five games, but have returned to winning ways with a brace of victories from their last two outings, seeing off Bury at home, and then Blackpool away, by a 1-0 scoreline.
What the managers say
Neil Harris: "We are currently on the fringes of the top six, as are our opponents, and the reason for that is we have so far failed to find the consistency required to be better placed.
"The challenge for us on Sunday, and for the rest of the season, is to find the balance between being defensively strong and difficult to break down, and getting bodies forward in numbers to hurt the opposition." Read more from Chopper here.
Rob Page: "We know it's going to be a tough place to go, we're not going to underestimate them at all but we know what we're capable of.
"Thankfully we have hopefully turned the corner with our away performances. I thought we were excellent against Blackpool. We were very disciplined defensively, but creative at the same time.
"We have got to take that into the game and if we do I am confident we will get the win." Read more from Page here
Having secured maximum points last time out in League One at Oldham Athletic, Chopper is determined to ensure that his team provide an instant, positive response to Thursday night's JPT Den defeat by Oxford United.
The boss has no new injury concerns following that game, although with Sunday's match The Lions' third tough fixture in eight days, he could be tempted to freshen things up.
One man desperate to be involved is midfielder Jimmy Abdou, who if selected to face Port Vale, would become only the 25th player in Millwall's history to make 300 appearances for the club.
Midfielder Anthony Grant could be back in contention for a return to the squad, but may have to be content with a place on the bench. Grant's last senior action came on Boxing Day in a 1-0 defeat at Coventry City. His replacement, wily campaigner Michael Brown, has been in good form in the last two games which have both been won without a goal conceded.
The Valiants have won 21 of the previous 47 games between the two clubs against 16 victories for The Lions with 10 games finishing all square. Millwall have scored 60 goals in all, with Vale finding the back of the net on 72 occasions in previous encounters.
