Preview | Millwall v Hull City

Lions return to The Den...

30 August 2019

Millwall return to The Den - and play their last game before the first international break of the season - on Saturday afternoon as The Lions take on Hull City in the Sky Bet Championship (kick-off 3pm).

The fixture signals the end of a gruelling opening period to the campaign, with six League fixtures played in addition to two Carabao Cup ties, against West Bromwich Albion and Oxford United.

The latter ended in a penalty shootout loss last Tuesday night, but The Lions are back in SE16 this weekend to defend a 100% home record, with two 1-0 victories - over Preston North End and Sheffield Wednesday - to their name so far.

Neil Harris made eight changes at the Kassam Stadium and may revert to the side which gained a point at Middlesbrough last Saturday, however, the manager now has Jed Wallace available once again after the winger completed his three-match suspension on Tuesday.

Jiri Skalak is a doubt, whilst Harris must decide who to start in attack, with Jon Dadi Bodvarsson finding the net twice in Oxfordshire - he will battle for a place alongside Tom Bradshaw, Matt Smith and Aiden O'Brien. Tom Elliott also played a part against The U's and may be in contention.

Tickets for Saturday's game are available up until kick-off, but if you wish to purchase and/or collect any tickets at The Den before the game, the club advises that you arrive early to prevent lengthy queues building before kick-off. Supporters with Membership cards are reminded that their tickets can be loaded on to their card as opposed to a paper version.

Millwall's Family Fun Zone is open once again this weekend, with FREE fun for all the family, from both The Lions and Hull City's travelling contingents between 1-2pm. Click here for more details.
