Preview | Barnsley v Millwall

Lions head north in search of club record...

16 March 2018

Millwall head to Barnsley this Saturday looking for a sixth consecutive Sky Bet Championship away win (kick-off 1pm).

The Lions have beaten Leeds United, Reading, Birmingham City, Burton Albion and Hull City in their last five away games and head to Oakwell looking to extend their unbeaten League run to 12 matches.

Aiden O'Brien may return to the fold after a period out through injury. The attacker completed an hour for the Under 23s in Monday's 1-1 draw with Queens Park Rangers and will look to force his way back into Neil Harris' thinking for the first time since the dramatic 4-3 victory at Elland Road in January.

Bryon Webster remains the club's only long-term absentee.

The two clubs have already met twice in 2017/18, both at The Den. The Tykes won the Sky Bet Championship meeting 3-1, but The Lions hit back in the Emirates FA Cup, winning 4-1 to advance to Round Four.

The duo will meet for the 58th time this weekend. Barnsley have been victorious in the last three matches at Oakwell, with Darius Henderson's hat-trick bagging Millwall their last win in S71 in January 2012.

Supporters travelling to Oakwell by train are reminded to please ensure they have their match ticket to hand or email confirmation to show staff if asked at the station.
