Preview | Millwall v Brentford

A look ahead to Saturday's London derby...

9 March 2018

Millwall welcome Brentford to The Den on Saturday afternoon for a Sky Bet Championship London derby (kick-off 3pm).

After Tuesday night's victory at Hull City - their fifth consecutive League success on the road - The Lions currently sit six points outside the top six. Their opponents, meanwhile, are just one point ahead in 10th place.

Neil Harris is set to name the same squad that has won four of the last five matches, with Aiden O'Brien being assessed prior to kick-off following a period out of action through an ankle injury.

The two clubs will meet for the 65th time on Saturday, with Brentford 23-20 in front historically. The Lions will look to avenge October's controversial 1-0 defeat at Griffin Park, but will also seek a first home win over The Bees since a televised 1-0 victory in February 2001 - a game in which Tim Cahill scored the winning goal.
