2 selection tweaks Rowett may be mulling over for Millwall this weekend



This weekend sees Millwall travel to Wigan Athletic as they look to build some real momentum in the season run-in.

Last weekend saw them pull off a shock, beating Preston North End 1-0 at Deepdale, a result which brought the Lions to within four points of the play-off places.

That gap could be narrowed to one if they can pick up a win against the relegation threatened Latics.

With confidence high amongst the camp, Gary Rowett may be tempted to try something a little different.

So here we take a look at TWO tweaks the Lions boss may be mulling over for this one…

QUIZ: How much can you remember about Millwall’s 2020 so far?

Who did Millwall play on New Years Day?

Mahoney starts

Edging more towards a physical attack made perfect sense when Millwall travelled to Preston last weekend. They were of course coming up against a side challenging for promotion.

But against the Latics they will be the favourites and will therefore be tasked with taking the game to their opponents.

Having someone like Mahoney join the attack, alongside the likes of Wallace, who can beat their man will almost definitely increase their chances of breaking down what could be a stubborn set-up.

Change of shape

As alluded to above, Millwall be the ones tasked with taking the game to Wigan in this one so a change of shape may well be on the cards.

Rowett has favoured a 3-4-3 since taking over at The Den and it has worked well for them thus far, but using a formation that allows more attacking talent to stretch their legs could be something the boss is considering.

A strike pairing made up of two of Tom Bradshaw, Matt Smith or Jon Dadi Bodvarsson has the potential to do a lot of damage, especially with Jed Wallace taking on creative duties down one side.
