2017/18 Sky Bet Championship preview: the final three

The final part...

7 July 2017

Millwall will travel to Villa Park for the first time since 1990 on 9th December as they take on Aston Villa in the Sky Bet Championship.

Following The Villans relegation from the Premier League in 2015/16 and The Lions' promotion via the League One Play-Offs in 2016/17, the two clubs will renew acquaintances in B6 shortly before the all-important Christmas period.

Following that, recently-relegated Middlesbrough make the long journey to The Den on the 16th, with Millwall travelling to the iPro Stadium for a meeting with Derby County just two days before Christmas.

Ahead of the new season, millwallfc.co.uk takes a look at all 23 of The Lions' 2017/18 Sky Bet Championship opponents, concluding with the following three...
