An in-depth look at our Sky Bet Championship fixture against Millwall at the John Smith's Stadium

- Huddersfield Town vs Millwall
- Saturday 6 April 2024, 3pm kick-off
- Preview of what to expect from the Lions

Keen to claim all three points in West Yorkshire, André Breitenreiter's Terriers take on Millwall at the John Smith's Stadium on Saturday.

Following a busy Easter period, Town will be looking to climb out of the bottom three with a win over the Lions on Saturday as we enter the final stages on the 2023/24 season.


Similarly to Town, the Lions have appointed three permanent managers since the start of the season, and find themselves just four points adrift of the Terriers.

Struggling to find form or momentum throughout their current campaign, Millwall have recorded just four wins since New Year's Day, with their most recent loss coming against Rotherham United who sit bottom of the table.

Hopeful of avoiding relegation under newly appointed Neil Harris, the opposition will be looking to climb the table with a win in West Yorkshire on Saturday afternoon.

A very familiar face in South East London, Neil Harris was appointed Head Coach of Millwall in February, following Joe Edwards' departure from the Den. Needing no introduction to Millwall supporters, Harris holds the title as the Lions' all-time record goalscorer - claiming the accolade in 2009 and going on to score 138 goals in all competitions for the Club.

Alongside his success as a player, the 46-year-old also managed the side prior to his current tenure, first as U21s Manager between 2013 and 2015, before undertaking the role of Caretaker Manager between 2013 and 2014, and finally being appointed Manager of the First Team from 2015 to 2019.

In his first full season in charge, Harris led Millwall to the League One Play-Off Final - which saw Barnsley gain promotion that year - before leading them once again to Wembley in the 2016/17 season. That year, the Lions won the Play-Off Final to return to the Sky Bet Championship, as well as reaching the FA Cup quarter-finals after knocking out Premier League sides Bournemouth, Watford, and  Leicester City.

Taking charge of the Club as they sat in 21st place - just one point above the relegation zone - Harris has won three of his fixtures with the Lions so far, helping them climb to 19th position in the Sky Bet Championship table.


Despite enjoying the majority of possession and 21 shots in total, it was the Millers who walked away victorious on Easter Monday, with Millwall suffering a 2-1 defeat in South Yorkshire.

Despite Ryan Longman finding an equaliser in the 78th minute, Rotherham's Charlie Wyke found the back of the net eight minutes later to seal a win for his side who currently sit bottom of the Sky Bet Championship.

Previous Starting XI (4-4-2): Šarkić; Wallace, Cooper, Tanganga, Leonard; Watmore, Saville, De Norre, Honeyman; Obafemi, Flemming


Favouring a 4-4-2 formation since the arrival of Harris, Millwall experimented with five different structures beforehand, with none proving to produce consistency in results throughout their campaign.

Since switching to a 4-4-2, the Lions have recorded three wins, two draws, and two losses - including a win at St. Mary's against promotion-chasing Southampton in February.


Zian Flemming

Featuring in every game for the Lions this season, Flemming has so far found the back of the net seven times, whilst also recording four assists for his side.

Much sought after in the summer of 2022, the 25-year-old attacking midfielder progressed through the Ajax Academy before making a name for himself on loan at NEC.

Japhet Tanganga

Making the move to South East London in January, the 25-year-old centre-back joined from Tottenham Hotspur until the end of the 2023/24 campaign.

Playing every minute since the arrival of Millwall's new Head Coach, Tanganga already has two goals to his name and will be looking to get back on the scoresheet against the Terriers on Saturday.

Jake Cooper

Featuring in every game under Harris, Cooper has made over 300 appearances for the Lions, and has been the Club's regular captain on the pitch this season.

One of the most effective players in the division in aerial challenges, he’s a genuine threat from set pieces.
