Preview | Birmingham City v Millwall

A look ahead to Saturday's St Andrew's trip...

16 February 2018

Millwall go in search of a third consecutive Sky Bet Championship away win on Saturday afternoon as The Lions take on Birmingham City at St Andrew's (kick-off 3pm).

Neil Harris' side head to the Midlands in good form, with just one League defeat suffered in 2018. Birmingham, meanwhile, will look to bounce back from last weekend's derby day disappointment as The Blues lost 2-0 to Aston Villa.

Aiden O'Brien and Bryon Webster remain long-term absentees, but Harris otherwise has a full squad to select from.

Ben Marshall impressed on his debut in last Friday's televised 1-1 draw with Cardiff City and will look to retain his place, whilst Tim Cahill's fitness will be assessed once more with regards to his involvement after making his second debut late on against The Bluebirds.

The two clubs will meet for the 45th time this Saturday, with Birmingham holding the upper hand historically, having won 21 times to Millwall's 11.

It is The Lions looking to do the double in 2017/18, however, after the Sky Sports cameras were on hand to pick up Maxime Colin's own-goal and Ryan Tunnicliffe's first Millwall strike in a 2-0 win at The Den back in October.

Millwall also tasted victory on their last visit to St Andrew's, as Alan Dunne nodded the winner in a single-goal success back in February 2015.

Around 1,000 fans will make their way to Birmingham this Saturday and The Blues have issued the following guide for away supporters to make the most of their day at St. Andrew's. Click here to view it.

The club have also been advised that there will be no alcohol sold on the day at the stadium and there will also be no ticket sales prior to kick-off.
