Preview | Reading v Millwall

A look ahead to Saturday's Madejski trip...

2 February 2018

Millwall travel to Reading in the Sky Bet Championship this Saturday afternoon looking for back-to-back away wins (kick-off 3pm).

Last time out on the road, The Lions were victorious in a seven-goal thriller as Jed Wallace's late, late strike earned Neil Harris' side a 4-3 success at Elland Road against Leeds United.

The Royals, meanwhile, are winless in four Championship home matches and will look to secure a first League victory at the Madejski in 2018.

January Transfer Window signings Jason Shackell, Harry Toffolo and Ben Marshall look set to be included in the matchday squad, whilst Tim Cahill is unlikely to be involved as he continues to work on his fitness on the training pitch.

Aiden O'Brien and Byron Webster remain long-term absentees.

The two clubs have met 100 times previously, with Reading having won 41 encounters to Millwall's 36. The pair have met twice already this season - once in The Championship, in which George Saville's late double ensured The Lions came from a goal down to win 2-1, and in the Carabao Cup, where The Royals needed extra-time to defeat Harris' outfit 3-1.

Around 2,700 Millwall fans will descend on the Madejski this Saturday, but if you are unable to make it to Berkshire, full match commentary will be available on iFollow Millwall from around 2.50pm. International subscribers can watch the weekend's action on iFollow. Click here for more details.
