Preview | Millwall v Leicester City

Premier League opposition under the lights...

22 September 2021

Millwall take on Leicester City in the Carabao Cup Third Round at The Den on Wednesday night (kick-off 7.45pm).

The Lions have defeated lower League sides in Portsmouth and Cambridge United to get this far and now welcome Premier League opposition in The Foxes - who enter at this stage due to their involvement in European competition - for a place in Round Four.

Gary Rowett was able to welcome Shaun Hutchinson, Danny McNamara, Benik Afobe and George Evans back into the training fold earlier this week, and it remains to be seen whether any of those will feature against Brendan Rodgers' side. Sheyi Ojo and Jed Wallace will be missing through illness as the manager may opt to make changes for the tie.

There will be a minute's applause prior to kick-off at The Den in memory of the late Jimmy Greaves, whilst supporters are also reminded that there will be no extra-time if the tie is level after 90 minutes - a penalty shootout will follow.

Tickets for Wednesday's game will be on sale up until kick-off - click here for more information. Due to Carabao Cup rights, live video coverage of the fixture will not be available to UK or international subscribers on iFollow.

Wednesday's matchday programme is available to purchase here or around the ground for just £2, whilst you can take a look at how The Lions' prepared in training here.
