Preview | Millwall v Nottingham Forest

Lions on Sky...

6 December 2019

Millwall welcome Nottingham Forest to The Den in the Sky Bet Championship on Friday night (kick-off 7.45pm).

The match, LIVE on Sky Sports, opens up a busy month for The Lions, with seven matches scheduled to take place between now and New Year's Day, and will see Gary Rowett's side look to maintain an impressive record which has seen the club taste defeat on home soil just once so far in 2019/20.

Shane Ferguson, Jason McCarthy, Ryan Leonard, Shaun Hutchinson and Frank Fielding are all at varying stages of their recoveries from injuries and look set to miss out on Friday's match, but Rowett does still have a strong squad to choose from. Matt Smith started up front at St. Andrew's last Saturday and may continue in attack, with Tom Bradshaw and Jon Dadi Bodvarsson waiting in the wings should the manager wish to freshen things up.

Tickets for Friday's game will be available up until kick-off, but if you are unable to make it to The Den, then full match commentary will be available on iFollow Millwall, with coverage beginning around 7.40pm. Due to the match being shown live, video coverage from SE16 will be unavailable to both UK and international subscribers.

Millwall's players will be wearing black armbands in memory of the two people who tragically lost their lives in last week's London Bridge terrorist attack, and also in memory of Benik Afobe's daughter Amora.

Supporters wishing to take a star from Millwall Community Trust's Christmas tree - to change a terminally ill child's life this festive season - are advised to do so from the Ticket Office, as the Lions Centre closes at 6pm on Friday evening.

Around the ground, the Deptford Rascals will be back at the Bus Stop Band Stand from 6pm, whilst Ben Thompson features on the front of the matchday programme, on sale prior to kick-off for just £3.

The Lions will also be taking part in the EFL's 'Rainbow Laces' campaign against Forest, with players' boots and other aspects inside The Den decked out in rainbow patterns.

For some pre-match reading, Matt Smith and Rowett have both been speaking to millwallfc.co.uk, whilst our opposition preview of Nottingham Forest can be found here.
