2 Millwall decisions Rowett should be pondering over the international break

Published

Life under Gary Rowett has got off to a flying start for Millwall with the Lions racking up two wins from his opening three games.

The latest of which came at home agains local rivals Charlton Athletic, with Matt Smith rising to head home a late winner after Shaun Hutchinson had given them an early lead.

It was the perfect way to head into the international break and Rowett and co. will be eager to continue their fine form against Swansea City.

But he will have some decisions to make in the two weeks leading up to the clash.

So with that in mind, here are TWO things he should be pondering during the break…

Strike pairing

In the clash with Charlton last weekend, Rowett started with the strike pairing of Tom Bradshaw and Jon Dadi Bodvarsson, the form

The former’s inclusion is to be expected, having netter four goals already this season, but a question mark remains over who he is better suited playing with.

Whilst Bodvarsson did nothing to embarass himself against the Addicks, it was Matt Smith who came off the bench to win the game for the Lions and Rowett must be considering a switch.

Tactical conundrum

After the international break, Millwall face a very different test to the one offered to them by Charlton.

Whilst the Addicks were very much their level, Swansea City appear to be playing to promotion standard so Rowett will almost certainly need to switch up his approach against the Swans.

They will need to combat their pacy attack and slick passing style, so how he adapts to that over the international break could be key.
