1 change, 27-year-old in: The likely XI Rowett will field for Millwall against Charlton



Millwall host Charlton on Saturday, in what is a massive local rivalry between the two sides.

The Lions are looking to bounce back from what was a disappointing away defeat at Reading last weekend.

Millwall have recently appointed Gary Rowett as their new manager, and under the new boss have picked up three points in his opening two games. The Lions have performed very well at home so far this season, and will be hoping to carry that on against Lee Bowyer’s Charlton this Saturday.

Here’s the Millwall XI that Rowett is likely to field on Saturday…

Will Millwall finish in the top half?





Millwall come into the game on the back of a defeat, but the second-half of that loss was a very positive performance that Rowett can build on ahead of the fixture with Charlton.

There is only expected to be the one change to the lineup and that’s in the attacking positions as Millwall look to take the game to Charlton as they’re the home team in this situation.

The back four is expected to stay unchanged, and there wasn’t much that they could have really done about the goals that Reading scored last weekend, with both coming from outside the box and into the corners of the goal.

Mahlon Romeo is expected to give width in the right-back position, with the impressive Jed Wallace playing in front of him on the wing. In the midfield, it’ll change from a middle three to a middle two.

Shaun Williams is likely to drop out of the side with Ben Thompson slotting in next to Jayson Molumby. Williams’ replacement comes as striker Jon Dadi Bodvarsson who was excellent when he came on last Saturday, this will give the Lions much more attacking threat going forward and Tom Bradshaw can gain some more support around him.

It’s set to be an enthralling fixture, that will capture both sets of supporters. Rowett will be hoping he can continue his 100% home record.
