Preview | Millwall v Charlton Athletic

A London derby at The Den

8 November 2019

Millwall take on Charlton Athletic at The Den in the Sky Bet Championship on Saturday afternoon (kick-off 3pm).

The fixture, which acts as the final game before the third international break of the season, will be the first meeting between the two sides - who are separated by just over four miles - in nearly three years.

Last Saturday's loss at Reading handed Gary Rowett his first defeat as Millwall manager, but the new boss will be looking to maintain a home record that has seen The Lions lose just once at The Den in 2019/20.

Rowett may opt to field an unchanged side from the Madejski Stadium trip, however, names such as Alex Pearce, Connor Mahoney, Aiden O'Brien and Matt Smith are on standby should he wish to mix things up. Jon Dadi Bodvarsson impressed from the bench at Reading and may come into contention, whilst Frank Fielding and Ryan Leonard are out of action.

Tickets for Saturday's game are SOLD OUT, with the Ticket Office open from 10am for collections and purchases for other home and away matches. For the full rundown, please click here.

If you are unable to make it to The Den, then full match commentary will be available on iFollow Millwall, with coverage beginning around 2.50pm. International subscribers can also watch the action from SE16 on iFollow - click here to find out more.

Supporters are reminded that there will be increased searching on entry to the stadium, whilst the Lions Store will be CLOSED after the game.

Saturday is designated as 'Jimmy's Day', with both clubs coming together to remember Jimmy Mizen, as well as Rob Knox, a Charlton fan who was also sadly killed a decade ago. Barry and Margaret Mizen visited Millwall Community Trust on Thursday - click here to view our gallery - whilst bucket collections will be held around the ground prior to kick-off 'For Jimmy', with Barry also making a speech on the pitch shortly before the two teams emerge from the tunnel.

The Lions' matchday programme is also dedicated to Jimmy and Rob, with the main feature looking at the fantastic and continued work of 'For Jimmy'.

There is plenty going on around The Den this Saturday - at midday, a bench is set to be unveiled in memory of Private Lee O'Callaghan, with Ben Thompson and CEO Steve Kavanagh in attendance. Click here to view the full story behind it all.

The Deptford Rascals - who first appeared against Stoke City - will be back once again at Millwall's Bus Stop Band Stand, playing tunes throughout the ages from 1.30pm. Have you got what it takes? Click here to showcase your talent!
