Millwall head to Norwich looking for their first away win of the 2018/19 campaign.

The Lions are winless on the road in the league since April 10th and have taken just two points away from the The Den this season. They head to Carrow Road to face a Norwich City side who currently sit 2nd in the Championship table behind Leeds United on goal difference only. You have to go back to when Harold Wilson was the UK Prime Minister in November 1968 for the last time Millwall won at Carrow Road. a 3-0 win in Division Two. The Lions have visited Norfolk a further 20 times since then and have taken just six points away and conceded a colossal 44 goals. To put things into perspective that is one goal less than Millwall conceded in the whole of last season.

Neil Harris has some decisions to make with almost a fully fit squad to choose from. James Meredith is pushing for a return to the side after sitting out the last two league games after a run of starting 60 competitive games in row for both Bradford and Millwall. Aiden O’Brien and Jed Wallace are also both pushing for recalls to side with the latter starting last weeks game at Brentford don the bench due to picking up an injury in the 2-1 win over Wigan in the previous week. Former Norwich striker Steve Morison will also be pushing for a recall to the staring 11 after a succession of substitute appearances in recent weeks.
