Match Preview: Millwall (A)

18 April 2016

All the key details ahead of Tuesday evening's fixture

Fleetwood Town will make the journey to South East London on Tuesday to contest a Sky Bet League One fixture against Millwall under the floodlights of The Den.

The Cod Army travel to the capital following Saturday’s draw at home to Oldham Athletic, which extended the unbeaten run to five league games.

Stefan Scougall gave Steven Pressley’s side the advantage after 67 minutes when he turned a Wes Burns cross beyond Joel Coleman from close-range.

However the hosts had to settle for a share of the spoils with just over ten minutes from time, when Liam Kelly’s shot creeped over the line despite Nathan Pond’s best efforts.

Millwall will be hoping to get back to winning ways having dropped down to fifth after a 2-1 defeat at Coventry City in a game which Shaun Williams received his marching orders for the Lions.

Byron Webster glanced Millwall into an eighth minute lead, only for late second-half strikes from John Fleck and Marcus Tudgay confirming defeat for Neil Harris’ side at the Ricoh Arena.

Team News

Joe Davis travelled with the Cod Army to London on Monday afternoon as he nears a return to full fitness.

Shola Ameobi, Bob Harris and Danny Andrew will all miss the game through injury.

Meanwhile for the Lions, Shaun Cummins (knee) is a long-term absentee, while Shaun Williams is suspended due to the red card he picked up on Saturday.

One to Watch

After enjoying a fruitful season in front of goal for Millwall, striker Lee Gregory will be hoping to add to his tally of 18 on Tuesday.

Born in Sheffield, Gregory began his playing career in the youth side of Sheffield United, dropping down to non-league level with Staveley Miners Welfare before signing for Mansfield Town in 2009.

During his two-year stay at the Stags, Gregory was loaned out to Glapwell, Harrogate Town and Halifax Town.

His five goals in ten appearances during a brief stint at the Shay would see him sign for Halifax on a permanent deal in the summer of 2011 as Jamie Vardy’s replacement, when the latter linked up with the Cod Army.

The 27-year-old Yorkshireman spent four-years at the club, netting 89 times in 135 outings for Town.

Gregory’s form in the Conference would see him secure a move to Millwall in 2014, and he has been one of the key players at The Den this season.
