Millwall FC Form & Team News


Millwall are down in the bottom half of the table having endured an inconsistent campaign this season. They have been on a resurgence lately having won their last three Championship matches to move six points clear of the relegation zone.

The Lions earned a 3-2 victory away at Ipswich Town in their previous Championship fixture with Shane Ferguson opening the scoring. Ferguson was once again on target last weekend, scoring a brace to earn Neal Harris' team a 2-1 victory over Hull City in the FA Cup.

Ferguson has been pivotal to Millwall's recent upturn in form, scoring three goals in his last four matches across all competitions. The winger is set to retain his place in the team with Tom Elliot expected to start in attack having also impressed lately.

Blackburn Rovers FC Form & Team News 


Rovers have also endured an inconsistent campaign this season which has them sitting in the bottom half of the table, six points above their visitors.  They are unbeaten since the turn of the year with a win and a draw in their two matches so far.

Blackburn earned a 2-1 win over promotion chasing West Brom in their previous Championship fixture thanks to goals from Charlie Mulgrew and Bradley Dack. Dack was on target again as Tony Mowbray's men held English Premier League club Newcastle to a 1-1 draw in the FA Cup.

Rovers will be without Richard Smallwood as the midfielder serves the last of a three-match suspension. Dack should retain his place in the team having found the net in his last two matches while Danny Graham is expected to continue in attack.

Millwall vs Blackburn Head-to-Head 


Millwall and Blackburn have faced each other nine times in the past with Rovers claiming three wins while the hosts have been victorious twice. Both teams have played out four draws in their previous meetings, including a goalless encounter in the reverse fixture.
