Despite their strong recent form, the top six looks out of reach for Millwall but finishing within touching distance of the play-offs represents another good season under Gary Rowett.
This term has certainly had its ups and downs but if Rowett can keep his side together and add some further quality to it over the summer, the Lions will be in a good position to look to make the next step in 2021/22.
They haven’t been particularly big spenders in recent years but the Millwall boss will be hoping for some backing in the transfer market as he looks to make the necessary improvements to his squad.
But could some of the answers he’s looking for already be at the club?
We’ve highlighted two Millwall wonderkids we could see emerge and save the club a lot of money this summer…
Scoring goals has been a real issue for Rowett’s side this term, in fact, the Lions are the lowest scorers in the top half of the table.
There’s a strong argument to be made that if Millwall had a consistent goalscoring striker, they could have turned a number of their 16 draws – the most of any side in the division – into wins and pushed harder for a top six spot.
The club are likely to be hunting for a new forward in the transfer market this summer, but so are much of the Championship, so George Alexander could just prove a very useful option.
The 20-year-old is a product of the south London club’s academy and was part of the matchday squad for their game against Derby back in December.
Alexander is known as something of a lethal finisher at the club, having fired in goals for the U18s and U23s, and could just prove the solution to Rowett’s striking problems.
Are these 17 facts about Millwall’s club badge true or false?
Beyond Jed Wallace and Mason Bennett, Millwall are not blessed with a huge amount of depth on the flanks.
Injuries have limited Conor Mahoney’s effectiveness and it would be no surprise if that’s an area that Rowett looks to reinforce in the summer window.
Tyler Burey may just be able to convince the Lions boss he doesn’t have to splash the cash, however.
The 20-year-old, who is capable of playing on either flank, is quick and possesses a good delivery – characteristics that could help him thrive in this Millwall side.
He’s featured from the bench a number of times this season but will be keen to show his manager he’s ready for a bigger role and if he can do that then the club may feel it’s not an area they need to improve in the transfer window.
