Preview | Millwall v Sheffield Wednesday

Lions v Owls on Tuesday night...

20 February 2018

Millwall welcome Sheffield Wednesday to The Den on Tuesday night (kick-off 7.45pm) looking to extend their Sky Bet Championship unbeaten run to seven matches.

Following Saturday's 1-0 victory at St. Andrew's against Birmingham City, The Lions take on Jos Luhukay's men looking to break into the top half of the League table.

Wednesday, meanwhile, sit two places and five points behind Neil Harris' side, failing to replicate the form that took them into the Play-Offs last season.

Manager Harris has no fresh injury concerns from the weekend's trip to the Midlands, meaning Aiden O'Brien and Byron Webster remain The Lions' only absentees.

Fred Onyedinma stepped off the bench to score the winning goal and will look to come into contention for a starting berth, whilst Tim Cahill is expected to take his place as a substitute once more as he steps up his fitness following his arrival in January.

Tuesday night will see the two clubs meet for the 46th time. Millwall have won 14 of those previous encounters, whilst Sheffield Wednesday have tasted victory 18 times, including at Hillsborough earlier this season, as Adam Reach and Jordan Rhodes fired The Owls to a 2-1 success.

To maintain their unbeaten run, The Lions will have to arrest a run that has seen Wednesday win three of the last four meetings at The Den - a 1-1 draw in January 2014 providing the only respite.
