Millwall boss Harris provides fixture list assessment

21 June 2017

Millwall manager Neil Harris is expecting a "cracking atmosphere" when his side take on Nottingham Forest at The City Ground on the opening day of the 2017/18 Sky Bet Championship season.

The club's full list of fixtures, which can be viewed by clicking here, was released on Wednesday morning.

First up is a trip to face Mark Warburton's Reds on Saturday 5th August before back-to-back home League games against Bolton Wanderers (Saturday 12th August) and Ipswich Town (Tuesday 15th August).

As for other key dates, The Lions are at home to Wolves on Boxing Day, away to Norwich City on New Year's Day and finish the campaign against Aston Villa at The Den.

"There is so much to look forward to for everyone connected with Millwall," Harris said.

"The Championship is such a competitive division and we know just how tough each and every fixture is going to be, no matter when they take place.

"But to start away to Nottingham Forest - a huge club - is great for us and I know it is one the fans will be excited for. We will take a big following there which will help contribute to a cracking atmosphere.

"Bolton proved just how good a side they are last season and Ipswich are always very strong at this level of football. They are two tough games to kick us off at The Den but I'm pleased to have consecutive home games early on.

"Naturally your eyes are immediately drawn to the busiest periods, particularly Christmas, and I'm delighted to be at home on Boxing Day. That is great news for the fans, the players and staff.

"We've got some huge games to look forward to in the final month of the season, especially Villa at home on the final day.

"I'm incredibly excited and can't wait for pre-season training to start next week."
