Preview | Burton Albion v Millwall

A look ahead to The Lions' trip to the Pirelli Stadium...

23 February 2018

Millwall go in search of a fourth consecutive Sky Bet Championship away win on Saturday as they take on relegation-threatened Burton Albion at the Pirelli Stadium (kick-off 3pm).

Following Tuesday night's 2-1 win over Sheffield Wednesday at The Den, The Lions are now seven League matches unbeaten and have won their last three on the road at Leeds United, Reading and Birmingham City.

They come up against a Brewers side who are somewhat resurgent in recent times, but currently sit in the bottom three of The Championship.

Albion claimed a priceless three points last time out as they defeated fellow strugglers Barnsley 2-1, but are winless at the Pirelli since 16th September.

Neil Harris has no fresh injury worries ahead of the journey to DE13, meaning the XI that started the midweek win over The Owls could be set to hold on to their places for a third consecutive match. Aiden O'Brien and Byron Webster remain the manager's only absentees.

Saturday's meeting will be just the fourth between the two clubs. In the previous three, Burton have won twice - a 2-1 win in December 2015 and November's 1-0 success in SE16 - whilst The Lions have one win to their name, a televised 2-0 victory in March 2016.

Around 1,400 supporters will make the journey to the Pirelli Stadium this weekend and Burton Albion have issued the following guide for away fans. Click here to view it.
