West Bromwich Albion return to action following the March international break with a trip down to London where they'll face Millwall in the Sky Bet Championship on Friday afternoon (ko 1pm).

The Baggies will be determined to extend their unbeaten run to seven matches in the capital city having won four and drawn two of their previous six in the second tier - results which see Carlos Corberán's men sat fifth in the standings, eight points clear of Hull City in seventh.

Hosts Millwall were beaten 2-0 up at Leeds United in their most recent match. That setback ended a crucial run of four without defeat for the Lions - encounters which have dragged them away from the bottom three for now.

They're 16th in the table, four points above the drop zone with eight fixtures left this season.

The two teams couldn't be separated at The Hawthorns back in September, drawing 0-0.

The opponents

Millwall are four points clear of the relegation zone heading into the final part of the 2023/24 campaign.

The Lions were beaten at table-topping Leeds in their last match, but prior to their trip to Elland Road, they had gone four games unbeaten, claiming three huge wins in the process. 

It was those narrow victories over Southampton, Watford and Birmingham which have helped create a small gap between themselves and Huddersfield Town in 22nd with eight encounters left to play.

The Londoners looked in deep trouble a month ago as a sequence of four straight defeats pushed them down to 21st in the standings - results which led to boss Joe Edwards' departure. 

Neil Harris, a man who holds the record for most goals scored for the club with a total of 138 to his name, was appointed head coach at the end of February on a contract until June 2025. 

This is the second time the 46-year-old has managed Millwall on a permanent basis. His first spell was between 2015 and 2019, during which he led them to two Sky Bet League One play-off finals and promotion back to the Sky Bet Championship. 

His overall record in the dugout for the Lions reads played 253, won 105, drawn 68 and lost 80.

One to remember

The Baggies' last win against Millwall came in treacherous conditions at The Den in February 2020.

A first-half strike from Croatian midfielder Filip Krovinovic was followed up by Dara O'Shea's header in the second 45 - his first senior goal for the club.
