Fleetwood Town v Millwall - the stats

17 April 2017

Crunch Easter Monday clash in stats...

Millwall make the long trip north to Fleetwood Town on Easter Monday (kick-off 3pm) for a six-pointer in the race for the Play-Offs.

Following on from Good Friday's victory over Northampton Town, The Lions find themselves still in 6th place, five points behind The Cod Army, who defeated Peterborough United 2-1 last time out.

With the Easter period proving pivotal time and time again in the fortunes of clubs up and down the country, the clash at Highbury Stadium is set to be frenetic as both teams battle for precious points as the campaign draws to a close.

The history between Fleetwood and Millwall is somewhat brief, given that the hosts only gained League One status in the 2013/14 season after years of progression through the non-League system.

There have been just three competitive meetings between the two, with the first coming in November 2015.

Eggert Jonsson opened the scoring for the home side on the 65th minute, with Robert Grant making the game safe a minute from time. Byron Webster halved the deficit in injury-time, but The Cod Army held on for all three points.

In the return fixture at The Den, a nervy April night was settled by Steve Morison's 52nd-minute winner as The Lions chased a place in the Play-Offs.

Earlier this season, Lee Gregory was 'spot on' twice, as the striker converted two penalty-kicks in a 2-1 victory. Ashley Hunter scored a consolation on 65 minutes, but despite late pressure, the Millwall defence stood firm to drag themselves away from danger at the bottom of the Sky Bet League One table.
