Trio preview FA Youth Cup tie

Young Lions meet Fleetwood at The Den

8 January 2020

Millwall's Under 18s take on Fleetwood Town in the Fourth Round of the FA Youth Cup on Wednesday evening (kick-off 7pm).

The tie at The Den will see Larry McAvoy and Chris Perry's in-form Lions take on The Cod Army for a place in Round Five, with tickets available at the Ticket Office up until kick-off, priced at £5 adults and £1 under 16s.

Hayden Muller is captain of Millwall's Under 18 side, and the centre-back cannot wait for the tie to get underway.

"Preparations have gone really well - we managed to beat the team second in our League [Watford] 5-3 at the weekend in a really tough game," he told millwallfc.co.uk. "We've been in training this week and we'll be preparing today [Tuesday] with some set-pieces.

"The Den is a really good place to play, and for the younger lads, we're trying to bring their confidence up to get through it and make sure they perform well."

"We're really looking forward to it," added McAvoy and Perry. "This is the furthest we've been since we took the job. It's nice to have a home game and for the players to play at The Den. It will be great for the players to have a bit of support.

"Out of possession, you can expect a team that will press the ball. They'll want to win the ball back quickly and work hard as a team. In possession, they'll look to play forwards, and with quality. We have players on the ball who can travel with it and dominate one-v-one's.

"We can mix our game up really well, but we've got pace and can get in behind, too."

Full updates will follow from The Den on The Lions' official Twitter account @MilllwallFC, whilst a report and reaction from SE16 will be on millwallfc.co.uk after the game's completion.
