Preview | Millwall v Birmingham City

December begins...

3 December 2021

Millwall welcome Birmingham City to The Den in the Sky Bet Championship on Saturday afternoon (kick-off 3pm).

Following last Saturday's 2-1 defeat at Hull City, Gary Rowett's side will be looking to bounce back on home turf against Lee Bowyer's Blues whilst looking to extend a four-match unbeaten run in SE16 in the process.

The manager will be without Ryan Leonard for the visit of the St Andrew's outfit, however, as the utility man begins a period out through injury. Connor Mahoney is also unavailable, but the likes of Danny McNamara and Tom Bradshaw - who started and scored at the MKM Stadium - are available and will hope to keep their place.

Tickets for Saturday's game are on sale up until kick-off. If you are unable to make it to The Den, then full match commentary will be available on iFollow, with coverage beginning around 2.50pm. International subscribers will be unable to watch the action from SE16 as the fixture has been selected for overseas broadcast.

There's plenty going on around the ground on Saturday - The Lions are proud to showcase Stonewall's Rainbow Laces campaign this weekend, whilst in the sixth minute of the fixture, both sets of supporters are encouraged to participate in a minute's applause in memory of Arthur Labinjo-Hughes.

At half-time, meanwhile, Brian Wood will undertake a lap of honour following his remarkable 'Ultimate Sacrifice' challenge.

Bryan King will be in the Lions Store's kiosk before kick-off, signing copies of his autobiography 'The Lions' King', with Billy Mitchell adorning the front of the matchday programme, on sale around the ground for just £3.

If you have a bit of time before kick-off and need to do some Christmas shopping, the Lions Store is the place to be, whilst supporters are reminded of their last chance to collect any Crowdies from the Millwall Supporters' Club gazebo between 1-2.15pm.

Owing to new government advice, supporters attending Saturday's fixture at The Den are encouraged to take a lateral flow test before travelling, to keep the stadium free from COVID-19.

In line with the government's recently increased terror threat, the club is having to further its own policies to stay in line with this change. As such, there will be increased searching of supporters on arrival. Please allow for additional time to enter the stadium. The car park will close to vehicles strictly 45 minutes before kick-off.
