Football League World’s Ned Holmes will be live at the Den as Millwall host Huddersfield Town in the Championship at 3pm tomorrow.
Gary Rowett’s men have been superb since the international break, taking 10 points from four games and rising to 4th in the table, and will head into tomorrow’s game high on confidence.
The same cannot be said for the visiting Terriers, who have lost by narrow margins in back to back games and slipped down into 16th.
Such is the congestion in the Championship at the moment, however, that Huddersfield are just four points back from the top six and only five behind their opponents on Saturday – so it looks likely to be a much closer tie than 4th v 16th may suggest.
Millwall look to be without their manager once again tomorrow, with Alex Pearce, Shaun Williams, and U23s boss Kevin Nugent likely to be in the dugout, and that trio will be hoping to mastermind a second home win of the season for the south London club.
Troy Parrott will be another of the missing men but that blow would be softened significantly if West Bromwich Albion loanee Kenneth Zohore, who scored a goal on his full debut in midweek, is fit. The striker was substituted soon after scoring against Preston and his availability appears to be questionable.
Despite the recent busy run of fixtures, Millwall may opt for continuity when it comes to team selection – particularly after a sterling performance in their 2-0 win against Preston.
The back-three of Jake Cooper, Murray Wallace, and Shaun Hutchinson have been hugely impressive over the past few weeks but Jed Wallace is likely to be the man that will worry Huddersfield the most – having scored twice and added one assist in his last four games.
Are these 12 facts about the Lions’ history genuine or not?
With Naby Sarr still suspended and Tommy Elphick out injured, Corberan may look to switch back to a 4-2-3-1 formation after their lack of success in midweek.
Isaac Mbenza was fantastic off the bench against Birmingham City and scored his first of the season, while the Spanish coach may look to freshen things up by adding Lewis O’Brien into midfield.
Huddersfield still look to be finding their feet under Marcelo Bielsa’s former assistant and have shown glimpses of the fast, attacking play that Corberan seems to aspire towards.
How that fares against a clever and physical backline such as Millwall’s should be fantastic to watch and may just be what ultimately settles tomorrow’s tie.
