Preview | Norwich City v Millwall

A look ahead to the first game of 2018...

31 December 2017

Millwall begin 2018 on the road as they travel to Carrow Road to take on Norwich City in the Sky Bet Championship on New Years' Day (kick-off 3pm).

Bar a five-minute spell at Derby County on 23rd December, The Lions have been in superb form over the festive period, taking 11 points from a possible 18 in December and stretching their unbeaten run at The Den to five matches following Friday night's 1-0 victory over QPR.

Neil Harris' side, however, are still searching for their first away win of the Championship campaign and will look to start the new year in the right way with a win over The Canaries.

The manager looks set to be able to choose from the same squad that took on Ian Holloway's side, with Conor McLaughlin and Tom Elliott being assessed prior to kick-off with regards to their involvement after withdrawing from Boxing Day's 2-2 draw with Wolves.

Norwich City and Millwall are no strangers - the New Years' Day encounter will be the 81st between the two sides. The last meeting took place earlier this season, with Lee Gregory, George Saville, Jed Wallace and Shaun Hutchinson all on target in a 4-0 thumping at The Den.

To complete the double over Daniel Farke's side, however, The Lions will need to halt a run without a victory in East Anglia that stretches back to November 1968 - Millwall won 3-0 on that occasion.

Just over 1,000 supporters will make the trek to Norwich on Monday afternoon, but if you are not one of those, full match commentary will be available on iFollow Millwall from around 2.50pm, with international subscribers able to watch events from Carrow Road on iFollow.
