Millwall ready for early start at Oxford

27 October 2016

Lions boss assesses opponents ahead of Saturday's 1pm Kassam kick-off

It's an early start for The Lions on Saturday as they visit the Kassam Stadium to take on Oxford United with a 1pm kick-off.

The clubs met last season over two legs in the Area Final of the Johnstone's Paint Trophy, with the away leg finishing in a 1-0 win for Millwall, and Neil Harris has been impressed with the progress of Michael Appleton's side since their promotion to League One.

He said: "Oxford have had a slight change in personnel during the summer. But they are still an attack-minded team so we will have to defend well and be a threat going forward.
They gave us two very good games last year, and they have kicked on and are a solid good footballing side. They have made a solid start this season. They have some dangerous players so we're expecting a difficult game, but we'll be confident going into it after three wins in our last four outings."

The U's have suffered a slight dip in form of late, winning just one of their last five matches, but that was an impressive 1-0 success against high-flying Bradford City. Only AFC Wimbledon have come away from the Kassam Stadium with all three points so far this term.
