Preview | Millwall v Portsmouth

Back at The Den!

10 August 2021

Millwall welcome Portsmouth to The Den for a Carabao Cup First Round tie on Tuesday night (kick-off 7.45pm).

After beginning the 2021/22 Sky Bet Championship season - with the return of fans - with a 1-1 draw at Queens Park Rangers on Saturday afternoon, The Lions now play their first game in SE16, without restrictions, since February 2020.

They come up against a Pompey side with ex-Millwall talent amongst it, with names such as Ryan Tunnicliffe, John Marquis and Shaun Williams set to return to their old place of work.

Gary Rowett will be without Mason Bennett for the visit of the Sky Bet League One side, whilst Jake Cooper is a doubt. Should the manager wish to change things, then the likes of Matt Smith, Ryan Leonard and Billy Mitchell, who all appeared from the bench at the Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium, could be handed a start. George Long, Alex Pearce, Connor Mahoney and Tom Bradshaw are other names who could be involved.

The club are delighted to be able to welcome supporters back to The Den for tonight's game - and fans attending can read important information before their visit by clicking here. The SE16 Bar and 'Arry's Bar will both be open before kick-off, with a DJ cranking up the atmosphere outside the former.

A 16-page poster programme, detailing Millwall's 2021/22 fixtures, can be purchased around the ground before kick-off for just £2. Alternatively, you can purchase your programme online here.
