Preview | Millwall v Barnsley

A look ahead to The Lions' Emirates FA Cup tie...

5 January 2018

Millwall begin their 2017/18 Emirates FA Cup campaign on Saturday afternoon as they take on Barnsley in the Third Round (kick-off 3pm).

The meeting between the two Championship clubs will be the second at The Den this season, after The Tykes ran out 3-1 winners in the League in September.

This time, however, a spot in the Fourth Round and a potential draw against one of the Premier League's top clubs is up for grabs.

Statistics show that Barnsley have been victorious in the last five encounters between the two clubs, but The Lions enter Saturday's match in good Den form, with a five-game unbeaten run under their belts, winning three and drawing two.

Manager Neil Harris will perhaps turn to his fringe players against Paul Heckingbottom's men, meaning names such as Tony Craig, Ben Thompson and Kris Twardek could gain some valuable match fitness before the Championship campaign resumes at home to Preston North End on 13th January.

Tickets are still available for the visit of Barnsley and will remain on sale right up until kick-off. Click here to purchase yours.
