Preview | Millwall v Barnsley

Our look ahead to Tykes meeting...

29 September 2017

Millwall host Barnsley at The Den on Saturday afternoon (kick-off 3pm) in their final Sky Bet Championship match before the second international break of the season.

Following Tuesday night's dramatic 2-1 victory over Reading, The Lions go in search of a fourth straight win on their home patch in a meeting of the last two Sky Bet League One Play-Off Final winners.

Neil Harris will welcome back Lee Gregory from suspension as the club look to extend their unbeaten run to five games.

The striker has missed the last three games through suspension after being sent off at Queens Park Rangers on 12th September, but will look to be involved in the squad and boost The Lions' attacking options. Should the frontman feature, he will make his 150th appearance in a Millwall shirt.

The manager will almost have a full squad to select from for the visit of The Tykes, with Tom Elliott the only absentee as he continues his recovery from injury.

The Family Fun Zone will be in action tomorrow in the Lions Centre between 1-2pm. All ages are welcome to attend for FREE activities including a penalty shoot-out and table tennis. There will be no DJ by the SE16 Bar before kick-off.

The two clubs will meet for the 56th time on Saturday, with Millwall looking to avenge four straight defeats against their opponents, with the most notable coming at Wembley Stadium in the 2015/16 Sky Bet League Play-Off Final.

The Lions' last win over Barnsley came on 23rd November 2013, as Scott Wiseman's 73rd-minute own-goal settled a tight affair at The Den.

Tuesday's goal-hero George Saville adorns the front of the matchday programme this weekend, with a feature interview with the Northern Ireland international inside. Saville also picks his 'Dream XI' alongside the usual features, stats and facts. Purchase yours around the ground for just £3 or order online by clicking here.

Millwall will also be marking 'World Heart Day' on Saturday. After surviving cardiac arrest at the age of just 19, former Lions Academy graduate Tobi Alabi founded the ‘Heart4More Foundation’, and his team have since worked tirelessly to promote the need for CPR education both in football and the wider community and to highlight how heart conditions are not solely a problem for the elderly or unfit.

Heart4More will have a marquee set up outside The Den where volunteers from the organisation will be on hand to train as many fans as possible how to perform CPRso please come along, show your support and learn how to save a life.

Heart4More volunteers will also be holding a bucket collection ahead of Millwall’s game against The Tykes so fans are encouraged to be as superbly generous as always in support.
