2017/18 Sky Bet Championship preview: from Barnsley to Brentford

Part three of our look ahead to Millwall's Championship campaign...

4 July 2017

Millwall head to Preston North End on 23rd September before returning to The Den for a double-header against Reading and Barnsley.

The Lions will take on the Deepdale outfit in the League for the first time in six years, before Jaap Stam's side, who narrowly missed out on promotion to the Premier League via the Play-Offs, visit south London on the 26th.

A battle of the last two Sky Bet League One Play-Off Final winners will take place at The Den on 30th September as Neil Harris' team take on The Tykes, before the second London derby of the season will see Millwall travel west to Brentford on 14th October - after another international break.
