Preview | Millwall v Cardiff City

A look ahead to Friday's televised clash...

9 February 2018

Millwall return to Sky Bet Championship action on Friday night as they host Cardiff City in a televised clash at The Den (kick-off 7.45pm).

The Lions welcome The Bluebirds to south London in good League form, having not lost since New Year's Day when Norwich City won 2-1, but face a Cardiff side chasing automatic promotion to the Premier League.

Bar injuries to Aiden O'Brien and Byron Webster, boss Neil Harris has a full squad to choose from. January Transfer Window signings Jason Shackell, Harry Toffolo and Ben Marshall come into contention, whilst Tim Cahill's fitness will be assessed with regards to his involvement.

The two clubs will meet for the 66th time on Friday, with Millwall just holding the upper hand, having won 21 times to Cardiff's 20.

The last meeting saw a goalless draw played out in controversial circumstances at Cardiff City Stadium in October, whilst Danny Shittu was on target as The Lions won 1-0 in the last meeting at The Den - coincidentally also televised.

Friday will see Millwall host its first-ever 'Memorial Day', in which the club will remember those lost in 2017. Names sent in will appear in the matchday programme, as well as on the big screen prior to kick-off when a minute's applause will take place. The players will also wear black armbands.

There will be no Family Fun Zone in the Lions Centre pre-match.

Cahill appears on the front of Friday's matchday programme. Priced at £3, an in-depth interview with the Australian is inside along with all the usual stats, facts and features.
