Town are back in Sky Bet Championship action on Wednesday 16 March 2022 when they travel to The Den to take on Millwall; 7:45pm kick-off.

Town will arrive at The Den having drawn their last away game with West Bromwich Albion, while Millwall come into the game following a nil-nil home draw with Middlesbrough.

THE OPPOSITION

Millwall currently occupy 11th place, having picked up 54 points from 36 games.

Managed by Gary Rowett, Millwall are unbeaten in their last five matches in the Sky Bet Championship, winning three of those matches.

Town will be hoping to do the double over Millwall on Wednesday following a 1-0 victory at the John Smith’s Stadium back in October.

ONES TO WATCH

Scott Malone

Following a successful loan spell with Millwall last season, Malone made his move to The Den permanent in the summer. The 2021/22 season would see Malone begin his third stint as a Millwall player. The 30-year-old first left Millwall in 2015 and has played for many different clubs since, including Cardiff City, Fulham and Huddersfield Town. Malone has become a permanent fixture in the Millwall side, missing only four games for the club this season. Whether he starts as a left midfielder or as a left back, Malone is a constant threat in attacking play down the wing. He has helped himself to six goal contributions this season, which is one of the better returns in the Millwall side.

Murray Wallace

Another familiar face to Town fans is that of defender Murray Wallace. Wallace made over 50 appearances for Town from 2012-2016. Since leaving the club, the Falkirk academy graduate has played over 100 times for Scunthorpe before signing for Millwall in 2018. Wallace has featured in all but four of Millwall’s games this season and with four goal contributions to his name, and is more than useful in both boxes for Gary Rowett’s side. The 29-year-old has played most of his minutes this season as one of the three central defenders in the Millwall team, but he can also play as a left back or – less often - as a left midfielder.

Benik Afobe

Having come through the academy at Arsenal, Afobe has represented numerous different clubs including Huddersfield Town, Wolves and Bournemouth. Afobe joined Town early in his career on loan, scoring 8 times for the club during the 2010-11 season. Since signing for Stoke City in 2019, Afobe has been loaned out three times, including to Millwall. Since arriving at The Den, Afobe has scored seven goals in all competitions. His physical presence up front allows Millwall to play the ball to him and bring others into the game in dangerous positions. Filling in for striker Tom Bradshaw, Afobe is a threat that Town will have to defend well against.

REPORT: MILLWALL 2-0 TOWN

16 March 2022

Town beaten away from home

- Millwall 2-0 Huddersfield Town
- Town’s unbeaten run comes to an end
- Terriers back in action on Saturday 19 March 2022

Huddersfield Town’s unbeaten run came to an end on Wednesday evening, as they were beaten 2-0 by Millwall at the Den.

Despite a promising opening 10 minutes, Millwall’s dominance left the Terriers with a mountain they were unable to climb.

Danny Ward tried his luck with a half-chance in the fourth minute. The striker raced clean through and beat Bartosz Bialkowski to the ball, but his headed touch on ran beyond him and out of play.

The Terriers continued to build on their opening pressure, calling Millwall’s ‘keeper into action twice just minutes later. First, Lewis O’Brien smacked a left footed half volley from range that Bialkowski did well to palm away for a corner, before he got down well to deny Duane Holmes from similar range.

Holmes was at the centre of the action again in the ninth minute, lining a strike up from a good distance, but getting just too much on it.

Wardy came close seconds later, with some lovely movement of the ball between Colwill and Russell giving the striker a half chance on his left from a tough angle. Unfortunately for Town, he just overdid his shot.

Lee Nicholls was called into action for the first time in the 12th minute, rushing out to deny Benik Afobe at his feet.

Millwall built on their newfound momentum, firmly getting a foothold back in the game.

The deadlock was broken in the 27th minute. A poor pass from Jonathan Hogg gave Millwall the ball, who quickly broke towards goal, with Afobe on hand to curl an effort past Nicholls from the edge of the box.

Town responded brilliantly to falling behind, going right back up the other end of the pitch at pace with Jon Russell playing Ward in down the right channel. Unfortunately, the latter’s shot was blocked before it could reach Bialkowski.

The game settled for the reminder of the half, with both sides pushing forward, but neither able to create any clearcut chances.

Town made one change at the break, with Danel Sinani coming on for Hogg.

The first chance of the second half fell Millwall’s way, with the hosts breaking nicely down the left before hitting the side netting.

Nicholls was called into an excellent save in the 55th minute do deny Afobe, who had a clear shot on goal from the penalty spot.

Millwall’s pressure paid off moments later as they doubled their lead thanks to Afobe.

The Terriers tried their best to get back into the game, but the hosts defended well in numbers. A nice move saw second half substitute Danel Sinani played into the box before his shot was blocked, seconds before Russell hit one wide from range.

The 71st minute saw Nicholls produce an unbelievable save to claw one off the line following a Millwall corner.

Town’s defence worked incredibly hard eight minutes later to scramble the ball off the line following a dangerous Millwall set piece.

Afobe tried his luck on two further occassions as the game counted down to full-time, but Nicholls was on hand to keep the scoreline sat as was.

The referee blew his whistle to see Town hit with their first league defeat of 2022.
