Preview: Millwall v Rovers

Tony Mowbray’s men are heading to the capital this weekend

10 January 2019

Rovers will look to continue an unbeaten start to the year when they travel to Millwall for the first away league game of 2019.

Here’s our guide to the game…

STATE OF PLAY

The last Championship fixture saw Rovers take all three points at home to West Brom thanks to goals from Charlie Mulgrew and Bradley Dack.

Following on from that win, the Blues drew 1-1 away at Newcastle United in the Emirates FA Cup Third Round. Bradley Dack had opened the scoring before a late penalty denied Rovers victory over the Premier league outfit.

That 1-1 stalemate at St James’ Park means there is a replay to come at Ewood Park on Tuesday 15th January (7:45pm), to decide who will face Watford at home in the Fourth Round of the competition. 

As always, we'll be bringing you team news and live updates on the game via social media. Fans can follow the action on our official Twitter account, with kick-off scheduled for 5:30pm.

Captain Charlie Mulgrew picked up a hamstring injury in the game at Newcastle and is doubtful for the trip to The Den. 

But Jack Rodwell is available again and in contention to make the squad after missing the last few games.

Saturday’s match will come too soon for Jacob Davenport, who is still a few weeks away from being available.
