Match preview | Millwall v Rochdale

23 September 2016

Read our guide to this weekend's game in SE16

Millwall will look to return to winning ways when they take on Rochdale at The Den this Saturday (3pm).

The Lions were beaten 3-1 by Southend United last time out but the loss was just the club's second League defeat so far this season and they go into Saturday's fixture still only five points off the top of the division.

Neil Harris' side will bid to continue their unbeaten sequence of League results at The Den, a run which stretches back to February. Millwall have gone 12 games without losing in SE16 - a proud record which The Lions will do well to protect against a Rochdale side in a buoyant mood after their first League victory of the season last weekend.

Keith Hill's men travel to The Den on the back of a hard-fought 2-1 win over Fleetwood Town, a result which lifted them to within two points of the safety zone, though the table is yet to take shape with the season still very much in its infancy.

Dale have lost two of four on the road so far but are unbeaten in three games, including draws against Sunderland (1-1) and Bristol Rovers (2-2) in the Checkatrade Trophy and regular League action respectively.

As for odds on the game, Millwall are 10/11 favourites with Sky Bet to earn all three points, while Rochdale can be backed at 29/10 to secure an away win. The draw is available at 13/15.

Steve Morison (7/2), Lee Gregory (4/1) and Aiden O'Brien (5/1) are shortest to score the opening goal, while Dale duo Ian Henderson and Steve Davies are 13/2 and 15/2 respectively.

For the above odds any many more visit Sky Bet.
