Preview | Millwall v VfL Bochum

Lions return to The Den on Saturday...

27 July 2018

The Millwall career of Jimmy Abdou will be celebrated on Saturday afternoon as The Lions take on 2. Bundesliga outfit VfL Bochum (kick-off 1pm).

After wins over Dartford and Cambridge United, a defeat to Colchester United and a week-long trip to Portugal, Neil Harris' pre-season plans come to a head as the Germans visit south London.

Harris told millwallfc.co.uk that there may be some resemblance in his starting line-up this weekend to that of the one that will take to the field against Middlesbrough on the opening day of the Sky Bet Championship season next Saturday.

"I'm still not clear in my mind [about my starting XI for Middlesbrough], you have to learn from the negatives as well as the positives - some of them done themselves no favours on Tuesday. They'll know that deep down inside.

"The side against Bochum will be an inkling of the side I'll select against Boro, but there's still one or two I haven't made my mind up about. You might see people given an opportunity on Saturday to stake a claim.

"With some players, they know what I expect from them and they know what is expected from me."

The SE16 Bar will be closed, but 'Arry's Bar will be open from 11am. With the current heatwave in mind, the air conditioned bar will provide you with some much-needed shade before kick-off!

In addition, the main car park at The Den will be open to all supporters on first come, first served basis. Entry is via Stockholm Road, will cost £10 and you MUST be parked up by 12.15pm.
