2017/18 Sky Bet Championship preview: Lions hit the road

Part four of our preview...

5 July 2017

Millwall's 2017/18 Sky Bet Championship campaign will continue with a home game against Harry Redknapp's Birmingham City on 21st October.

After the meeting with The Blues, The Lions will embark on two road trips to Cardiff City and Sheffield Wednesday.

A Saturday in south Wales will see two Neil's battle as Harris takes on Warnock, before the club travel to Hillsborough on Halloween night to do battle with last season's beaten Championship Play-Off Semi-Finalists.

A further international break follows on the weekend of 11/12 November, but prior to that, Millwall welcome Burton Albion to The Den for a first meeting since a televised 2-0 victory on Easter Monday 2016.
