Preview | Millwall v Reading

Boxing Day at The Den...

24 December 2018

Millwall's penultimate match of 2018 takes place at The Den on Boxing Day as The Lions take on Reading in the Sky Bet Championship (kick-off 3pm).

Neil Harris' side return to The Den after a two-and-a-half week absence, drawing 2-2 with Hull City last time out, and arrive back in SE16 following two narrow defeats, but with encouraging performances at Preston North End and Stoke City.

Tom Bradshaw and Shaun Williams will definitely be missing, while Jiri Skalak will be assessed having missed the last couple of games due to illness. Neil Harris - who stressed the importance of Wednesday's match - may opt to freshen up his starting XI for the visit of The Royals, with Steve Morison and Aiden O'Brien, who stepped off the bench at the bet365 Stadium, pushing for starts.

Ryan Tunnicliffe is the featured star in The Lions' matchday programme, which continues to commemorate the club's 25 years at The 'new' Den. Junior Lions Christmas Card competition winner Ella Lyons, however, adorns the front cover this time round, whilst an interview with goalkeeper Graham Stack is inside as the 2004/5 campaign comes under the spotlight.
