Getting To Know: Millwall

10 March 2014

A closer look at Tuesday's opposition

Ian Holloway returns to Bloomfield Road on Tuesday, where he hopes to mastermind a Millwall victory over his former club.

The Lions currently sit one place above the relegation zone, but were boosted by a second victory under Holloway at Derby on Saturday.

They’ve been at this level since 2010, but changed managers in January, as Steve Lomas was replaced by former Blackpool boss.

The Londoners beat Pool back in September, but with the hosts desperate for a win of their own, tomorrow’s clash is likely to be a tight one.

How they’re getting on…

Prior to Saturday’s victory The Lions had gone seven games without a win, a run which stretched back to early January.

Their win on Saturday came at high-flying Derby, and was achieved despite the visitors having ten men for the closing stages.

Man in charge…

Holloway is set for his second return to Bloomfield Road since his departure, and will be looking for a third victory as Millwall boss.

Prior to Christmas he left Crystal Palace, who he’d guided to the Premier League, and has now been handed the challenge of keeping The Lions up.

Scoring the goals…

Martyn Woolford is leading the way for goals so far this season, with seven to his name.

Meanwhile Steve Morison is one behind him after scoring the winner at Derby on the weekend.     

Away from home…

On the road Millwall haven’t been too successful – they’ve lost ten times away from The Den, and won just twice.

Before the victory on Saturday, Millwall had gone since September without an away victory, where they defeated Charlton.
