Match Previews

Millwall v Albion match preview

6 April 2019

Albion travel to The Den on Saturday hoping to make it four successive Sky Bet Championship wins with a victo Millwall (ko 3pm).

The opposition 
 
Managed by Neil Harris, Millwall currently sit in 21st place in the league, just above the relegation zone.
 
The Lions gave Harris the job in April 2015, and his four years of service so far make him the longest serving manager in the Championship.
 
Millwall's top goalscorer is Lee Gregory, who has 11 goals to his name this season. 
 
Last time out
 
The last time Albion faced Millwall was at The Hawthorns earlier this season in September, as the Baggies came out victorious.
 
It took until the 68th minute for Dwight Gayle to break the deadlock for Albion - but once the Baggies had one, a second quickly followed through Kieran Gibbs to finish the job off.
 
 
Stats
 
Albion
 
• The Baggies can make it ten wins from 12 games on the road if they beat Millwall
• Albion have won their last three games and can make it four wins from four with a victory against the Lions - which would be the best winning streak the Baggies have put together this season
• Of their last 26 games, the Throstles have lost just four times
 
Opposition
 
• The Lions have won just once in their last seven games
• Millwall haven't won any of their last five home games in the league
• Neil Harris' side have beaten just three teams in the top half of the table this season, winning against Aston Villa and Nottingham Forest - and doing the double over Derby County
 
From the archive
 
Here are the highlights from Albion’s last trip to Millwall, in 2004, which ended in a 1-1 draw.
 
Danny Dichio put the Lions ahead in the first half, with Jason Koumas getting sent off for the Baggies just before the break. Andy Johnson would level the scores in the second half and Albion managed to hold on for a draw despite finishing the game with nine men after a late Thomas Gaardsoe red card.
 
 
Head to head 
 
Both teams are level in the head-to-head record.
 
Of the 37 matches that have been played between the sides, the Baggies have won 14 times, there have been nine draws and Millwall have won in 14 of the games.
 
Man in the middle 
 
The referee for Saturday’s match is James Linington and he’ll be assisted by Steven Meredith and James Wilson - with Ian Cooper as the fourth official.
 
James Linington has refereed Albion during two away wins this season, firstly at Swansea City in a 2-1 victory for the Baggies, and then in a 2-0 win at Aston Villa.

Match Reports

Millwall 2 Albion 0

6 April 2019

Albion were beaten 2-0 by Millwall at The Den to end a run of three Sky Bet Championship wins in a row.

The Baggies went behind on the half-hour mark through Ryan Tunnicliffe's strike from the edge of the box and it stayed that way right up until the interval. 

Jay Rodriguez missed from the spot for the first time this season after half-time, and Albion were made to pay for it when a deflected Ben Thompson cross saw the hosts double their lead.

Ahmed Hegazi then received his marching orders for a second yellow card with just 10 minutes to play, and Millwall saw out the final stages to ensure the points stayed in London.

Jimmy Shan made three changes to the side that came back to overcome Birmingham City last Friday with Craig Dawson, missing out through illness, James Morrison and Kyle Edwards being replaced by Tosin Adarabioyo, Stefan Johansen and Hal Robson-Kanu. 

Millwall had the first opportunity of afternoon as Jed Wallace drifted into the Albion box and hit a left-footed shot that rose well over the bar. The Lions came forward again soon after; Ben Thompson whipped a low cross which evaded the Baggies backline, but Lee Gregory lacked the composure to capitalise and fired well wide.

The Baggies gradually started to assert their authority on the clash and, as the noisy away end roared them forward, the Throstles responded. In their green and yellow stripes Albion tested the Lions’ resistance with a number of dangerous free-kicks and corners.

However on the half-hour mark and against the run of play it was Millwall who took the lead. Gregory found Tunnicliffe in space and the Lions midfielder rifled in a low strike to put the hosts ahead.

Millwall were invigorated. Sam Johnstone had a busy few minutes, parrying a Jake Cooper header before beating away a curling effort from distance by Wallace.

Just before the break the Baggies created their best chance of the half. Mason Holgate curled a cross to the edge of the box, which Johansen met with a powerful left-footed volley that David Martin could only tip over the bar.

After the restart both teams battled for ground. Ryan Leonard had a chance for the hosts but hit his shot well wide. Robson-Kanu went through on goal for the Baggies but his shot was blocked by a desperate last-ditch tackle.

Then, on the hour, Albion had the chance to level. Townsend looped a ball into Gayle, who was brought down by Cooper as he entered the box. The referee pointed to the spot but Rodriguez fired just wide.

The Baggies came forward again. Rodriguez went close after Gayle played him in, but he couldn’t get much power on his strike and Martin fumbled the ball away for an Albion corner.

However, in a frantic period of the game, Millwall would extend their lead just a couple of minutes later. Ben Thompson ran along the byline and fizzed the ball across the face of goal, with a cruel deflection taking it in to the Albion net.

The Lions continued to press forward as Albion looked to get back in the game, with Johnstone superbly dending Thompson and Gregory with a double save - and with the game drawing to a close Hegazi was sent off for his second yellow of the afternoon.

ALBION: Johnstone; Holgate, Hegazi, Adarabioyo, Townsend; Livermore, Brunt, Johansen; Robson-Kanu (Murphy 72), Rodriguez (Mears 85), Gayle.

Substitutes: Bond, Gibbs, Harper, Edwards, Leko.
