Preview | Millwall v Cardiff City

Present v past at The Den...

20 November 2020

Millwall resume their Sky Bet Championship campaign on Saturday afternoon as The Lions welcome Cardiff City to The Den (kick-off 3pm).

Following the November international break, Gary Rowett's side now embark on a tough schedule which will see them play 11 games between this weekend and the end of 2020 - beginning with a double-header in SE16.

There will be a meeting of managers past and present in the dugout at the weekend, as the duo of club legend Neil Harris and his assistant and Lions stalwart David Livermore return to South London for the first time since their departure in October 2019.

The Millwall manager will be able to welcome Troy Parrott back into the fold against The Bluebirds, after the striker came through Republic of Ireland duty unscathed on his way back from injury. Fortunes are mixed for The Lions' two other internationals, Jon Dadi Bodvarsson and Shane Ferguson, however - the Icelander is fit to play after featuring in all three of his nation's matches over the break, whilst Ferguson will be assessed before kick-off after pulling out of Northern Ireland's trip to Austria in the first-half.

Billy Mitchell, meanwhile, has unfortunately suffered a setback in recovery from injury and will not return until the new year.

In a change which reverts back to the latter part of last season, five substitutes - and squads of 20 - will be allowed from this weekend after a vote was carried earlier this week.

Saturday's fixture will be streamed on iFollow, with season ticket holders able to take advantage of a new system which sees the match automatically added to their account. For further information, including news of why certain supporters have been sent streaming codes, click here.

The game has been selected for overseas broadcast, meaning that Match Passes are not available to international customers, but UK customers - who are not Millwall season ticket holders - can purchase one, at a cost of £10, by clicking here.
