2 players that need to push for a Millwall exit this January



January is now upon us, and Millwall manager Gary Rowett will be assessing his squad ahead of any potential transfers during the current window.

With Millwall current occupying the final play-off place after an impressive two and a half months under Rowett’s tenure, they will be looking to carry on their recent form into the second half of the campaign.

All of that could depend on the potential players that come into the club, with deals to bring new signings in looking likely for the Lions.

QUIZ: Can you remember Millwall’s last fifteen league positions?

Where did Millwall finish in the 2018/2019 season?

It could also mean that some fringe players may have to be offloaded to balance the books, with Millwall notably not having the advantage of spending power in the Championship.

We take a look at TWO players who should push for a Millwall exit during the January transfer window:

Jiri Skalak

The Czech winger has not made the impression he was hoping for since signing for Millwall from Brighton & Hove Albion in the summer of 2018.

Skalak has made 28 appearances in the time he has been at the club, and could look for a new challenge this January due to the lack of opportunities that he has been given.

He has started just three league games for the Lions this season, with Gary Rowett not yet convinced that Skalak is ready for a regular starting spot on the left side of midfield.

At 27 years of age, he is in the prime of his career and won’t want to waste any more time just to be used as a squad player.

James Brown

The 20-year-old made an unlikely appearance off the bench for Millwall against Newport, coming on for Jason McCarthy.

Another loan spell could help his development even more, as it is likely that the club will be in the market for another right-back as cover to Mahlon Romeo.

Brown has spent time at Carlisle United, Livingston and Lincoln City in his short career, but with the opportunities of first-team football limited at Millwall, another spell away from the South London club until the summer could be beneficial if he is regularly starting games.
