Millwall vs Wolves
Kick off: 15:00
Wolves boss, Kenny Jackett, returns to The Den for the first time since leaving the club two summers ago. The home side, Millwall, will be looking to maintain the same level of performance on Saturday as they did against Derby County two weeks ago. Whilst Kenny Jackett’s Wolves will be looking to carry on their early season form.
Lions winger Lee Martin has given Millwall a boost after he returns from an injury. Whilst Nicky Bailey remains a doubt and Carlos Edwards continues rehab after surgery on his cruciate knee ligaments.
Wolves midfielder Bakary Sako will undergo a late fitness test after only returning from international duty on Friday. But, Nouha Dicko has recovered from an Achilles injury and looks set to feature.
What the gaffers said…
“This is a great one. Our fans have something really exciting to look forward to. I’m looking forward to seeing Kenny, but we will be at each other’s throats. Hopefully my Lions will be stronger than the Wolves!”
“Millwall is a unique football club with a great siege mentality. I received great backing when I was manager there, not only from the chairman and the directors, but from all the people behind the scenes, the groundsman, the kitman, everyone. That’s what I told Ian he could expect and that was one of the reasons I enjoyed such a long and happy association with the club.”
Millwall: DLLDL – The Lions have failed to win a game since their narrow 2-1 victory against Blackpool.
Wolves: DLDWD – Wolves have only slipped to two defeats so far this season and will prove to be a tough game for Millwall.
I think this game will be intense and very attacking, meaning lots of chances will be created and goals scored. The game will be very closely contested and I think a 2-2 draw would be a fair result.
