Preview | AFC Wimbledon v Millwall

Emirates FA Cup Fifth Round tie...

15 February 2019

Millwall travel the short distance to AFC Wimbledon on Saturday afternoon for an Emirates FA Cup Fifth Round tie (kick-off 3pm).

The Lions will battle with The Dons for a place in the last eight of the competition after both completed thrilling shocks over Premier League teams in Round Four - Neil Harris' side defeated Everton in dramatic, last-minute circumstances, whilst Wally Downes' outfit were 4-2 victors over top flight West Ham United at the Cherry Red Records Stadium.

There will be changes to the Lions side in front of a sell-out crowd - Ben Thompson, Ben Marshall and Fred Onyedinma are all Cup-tied, whilst Tom Elliott and Lee Gregory will be assessed prior to kick-off, with the latter having to withdraw late on in Tuesday's 0-0 Sky Bet Championship draw with Sheffield Wednesday.

Tom Bradshaw is a long-term absentee and Conor McLaughlin continues to recover from a quad issue, whilst Ben Amos has returned to training following a finger injury.

There are NO Fifth Round replays in this season's Emirates FA Cup - if the tie is level after 90 minutes, extra-time and penalty kicks will be facilitated to declare a winner.

With all 750 tickets of Millwall's allocation sold and with the tie not televised in the UK, the only place for Lions fans unable to attend to watch all the action is at our beamback at The Den. Tickets are on sale until 5pm on Friday, so be quick!

There will be a minute's applause prior to kick-off this weekend in memory of Gordon Banks, who sadly passed away earlier this week.
