Early season Sky Bet Championship leaders Leeds United face a huge mental test when they take on Millwall at The New Den on Saturday.

The Whites are unbeaten after the first six matches of the new season but now travel to a venue where they hold one of their most dismal records in recent times.

Leeds United have lost on all of their last four visits to The New Den without scoring a single goal. Their last win at the South London ground came way back in March 2012 when Ross McCormack netted the winning goal in a 1-0 victory against The Lions.

After leading a promotion charge early last season before falling away, the pressure is on Leeds United to maintain a title challenge this season. Ending their miserable record at Millwall would provide the club with a mental boost as they look to re-write the history books and gain that long-awaited return to the English Premier League.

Millwall completed a first league double over Leeds United since the 2009/2010 campaign last season, ending their poor recent record at Elland Road in the process. Neil Harris’ side won the home fixture 1-0 courtesy of an Aiden O’Brien second half goal before they recorded a 4-3 victory in West Yorkshire with two late goals turning the match on its head.

Ahead of Saturday’s meeting, Millwall have collected four points from their three home league matches so far this season while Leeds United have taken seven points from an available nine on their travels.
