Preview | Millwall v Birmingham City

A look ahead to Saturday's televised match...

20 October 2017

Millwall return to The Den on Saturday evening as they take on Birmingham City in a televised Sky Bet Championship match at The Den (kick-off 5.30pm).

After consecutive defeats to Barnsley and Brentford either side of November's international break, Neil Harris' side will be doubly determined to register three much-needed points against their rivals.

Long-term absentees Byron Webster and Shaun Williams aside, Steve Morison and Tom Elliott remain the only injury worries for the manager.

Saturday's meeting will be the 44th between the two teams. The last encounter saw The Lions break a duck stretching back to 1968 as Alan Dunne's winning goal secured a 1-0 victory over The Blues at St. Andrews. Overall, Birmingham have won 21 times, with Millwall lagging behind on 10.

There will be no pre-match Family Fun Zone or SE16 Bar DJ on Saturday, but with the match being the club's Prostate Cancer UK focus match, bucket collectors will be around the ground, so dig deep!

As a result of the live coverage on Sky Sports, the visit of Birmingham will subsequently not be available for overseas users to stream on iFollow. However, full match commentary will be available. Click here for more details.
