Preview | Millwall v Bolton Wanderers

A look ahead to Saturday's Den encounter...

11 August 2017

Millwall welcome Bolton Wanderers to The Den this Saturday for their first home game of the 2017/18 Sky Bet Championship season (kick-off 3pm).

The Lions began their campaign at Nottingham Forest last Friday and despite narrowly losing 1-0, the performance, coupled with Tuesday night's 2-0 Carabao Cup First Round victory over Stevenage, will ensure a wave of confidence will be present as The Trotters come to south London.

Bolton themselves are also enjoying life back in The Championship following promotion last season after just one year in the third tier, but look set to be without Josh Vela and David Wheater for the Den clash.

Millwall, meanwhile, will be sweating on the fitness of Jake Cooper and Lee Gregory, who were both forced to withdraw themselves from Tuesday's Cup success.

Saturday's match will be the 44th meeting between the two. The Lions have 16 victories to their name, but will be looking to arrest a run that has seen them win just one of the last 10 games, with no wins in their last seven.

Darius Henderson was on target twice - with a last-minute winner to boot - in Millwall's last victory over Bolton in October 2012.

The Family Fun Zone is open for business once more this Saturday and can be found in the Lions' Centre between 1-2pm.

There are set to be no travel disruptions to and from The Den this weekend. Tickets are available right up until kick-off and can be purchased by clicking here.
