Millwall come up against one of their former in Mick McCarthy when they travel to Cardiff City this afternoon.
Despite crashing out of the FA Cup in the fourth-round stage last Saturday, Gary Rowett’s team have collected four points from their previous two league matches, which included a well-deserved draw against promotion-chasing Watford on Tuesday, and are heading in the right direction at present.
And five of their six Championship victories this season have come on their travels, including the recent win at Huddersfield Town.
Wallace? Bradshaw? – Can you name which Millwall player scored each these 15 goals this season?
Millwall started with a back-three for their victory in Yorkshire earlier this month, and Lions boss Rowett has decided to stick with the same formation for the third game on the bounce.
In fact, Rowett has named an unchanged side from the goalless draw with Watford – with Jed Wallace and Ben Thompson supporting Kenneth Zohore in attack, whilst January signing Maikel Kieftenbeld keeps his place in the starting line-up.
Here, we’ve been looking at how The Den faithful have been reacting to Millwall’s XI for the game in South Wales:
Thompson needs a performance today

That is SO defensive I can only think he’s going for a 0-0…. Which he won’t get! I’ve had a gut full of Rowett and his boring, negative tactics!
