Preview | Boreham Wood v Millwall

Emirates FA Cup action begins...

8 January 2021

Millwall's 2020/21 Emirates FA Cup campaign begins with a Third Round trip to Boreham Wood on Saturday afternoon (kick-off 12midday).

The Lions will be looking to bounce back from last weekend's Sky Bet Championship defeat at The Den to Coventry City against the Vanarama National League outfit - with the tie being shown live on BT Sport Extra 3.

The match at Meadow Park may give Gary Rowett an option to freshen up his team and give some fringe players a chance in the first XI. Danny McNamara returned from a loan spell at St Johnstone earlier this week and may start, whilst other youngsters such as Hayden Muller and Tyler Burey are expected to feature. Kenneth Zohore, meanwhile, stepped off the bench to return against The Sky Blues and will hope to gain a starting berth. The Lions' four loanees - Zohore, Troy Parrott, Ryan Woods and Scott Malone - have all been given permission to play by their parent clubs.

With the tie being live on BT Sport and also being a Cup fixture, there will be no iFollow video coverage from Boreham Wood. However, unfortunately, due to limited facilities, there will also be no audio commentary.

The encounter must be finished on the day this weekend, meaning that there will be extra-time and a penalty shoot-out if needed. Should the game go beyond 90 minutes, then both teams will be permitted to carry over any unused substitution opportunities and also will be permitted an additional (fourth) opportunity to make a substitution (excluding the break between full-time and extra-time and half-time of extra-time).
