Brentford vs Millwall

Saturday 14 October

Griffin Park, 3pm

Sky Bet Championship

The Opposition

Neil Harris' Lions have enjoyed a solid start to life back in the second-tier following promotion in May. It took five attempts to register their first league success but since then they have lost just twice in seven to occupy 14th spot with 13 points from their opening 11 games. 

Millwall's home and away form has been chalk and cheese this campaign. The South London side have taken ten points from their six home Sky Bet Championship games but are yet to taste victory away from The Den, scoring just two goals on their travels. 

By and large it was a quiet summer of transfer dealings with former Bee George Saville, Jed Wallace, Ryan Tunnicliffe, David Martin, and Conor McLaughlin the permanent arrivals. The Lions do also go into tomorrow's game with injury problems as Byron Webster and Shaun Williams both miss out due to long-term knee issues. 

The Manager

Neil Harris is Millwall’s record goalscorer and is now in to his third full season asThe Lions' manager. The 40-year-old spent ten years at The Den in two spells. He scored 138 goals in all competitions, beating the previous record held by Teddy Sheringham. Harris also battled and beat testicular cancer during a playing career that took him to Cardiff City and Nottingham Forest and Gillingham but was mostly spent at Millwall.

Harris had a spell as caretaker boss during the 2013/14 season before Ian Holloway took charge and worked with the Under-21 side at The Den after his playing career ended. When Holloway left, Harris took over again but couldn’t keep Millwall in the second tier. He was given the job permanently in the summer of 2015 and in two full seasons has led The Lions to the Play-Off Final and then promotion.
