Albion v Millwall match preview

22 September 2018

ALBION will be looking to make it six home wins on the bounce when Millwall visit The Hawthorns on Saturday (ko 3pm).

The opposition 

Millwall currently sit 21st in the Sky Bet Championship table on six points after picking up one win, three draws and four losses from their opening eight matches. 

The Lions' most recent outing was a 2-0 loss at QPR on Wednesday evening.

They finished eighth in the second tier last season, missing out on the play-offs by just three points despite it being their first season back at that level after winning promotion from League One the year before.

Last time out

The most recent fixture between the two teams was in April 2004 as the sides drew 1-1 at The Den in a Football League Division One clash.

There hasn’t been a game at The Hawthorns since earlier that season in September 2003 - when Albion won 2-1 thanks to goals from Jason Koumas and Scott Dobie.

  • The Baggies have now won five matches in a row at home - scoring 16 goals in the process.
