Millwall home to Southend United in the Emirates FA Cup First Round

17 October 2016

The Lions face The Shrimpers following tonight's draw

Millwall have been handed an Emirates FA Cup First Round tie at home to fellow League One side Southend United following Monday's live draw.

The game, scheduled for the weekend of 5/6th November, sees the two teams lock horns for the 84th time.

The Shrimpers took the honours when Southend faced Millwall in the League last month - only their 27th win in 84 games against The Lions, who have come out on top in 35 of those meetings with the remaining 22 fixtures ending all square.

Southend have won both previous FA Cup encounters between the two so The Lions will be looking to put that right at the third time of asking.

All but three games between the two clubs, until now, have been in League action.
