Preview | Reading v Millwall

Sky Bet Championship action returns...

19 October 2018

Millwall return from the international break to Sky Bet Championship action on Saturday afternoon as they take on Reading at the Madejski Stadium (kick-off 3pm).

The Lions ended the second section of the 2018/19 season on a positive note a fortnight ago as, after coming from 2-0 down to draw with Nottingham Forest, goals from Shane Ferguson and Tom Elliott earned a much-needed comeback victory over Aston Villa.

They now take on a struggling Royals side managed by Paul Clement, looking for a first away victory of the campaign.

Neil Harris has the luxury of a fully-fit squad to choose from for the trip to Berkshire. Shaun Hutchinson returned from an injury lay-off to play 45 minutes for the Under 23s during their 2-0 victory over Watford last Friday, whilst Tom Bradshaw also scored two quick-fire goals - one from the penalty spot - against The Hornets.

Elliott, Ferguson and Murray Wallace also came into the side and performed well before the break, giving the manager a positive selection headache ahead of three League matches inside seven days.

Ben Amos, meanwhile, will be looking to retain his place in goal - and you can read what the stopper has had to say by clicking here.
