Match Preview: Millwall vs. Cardiff City

The Bluebirds are back on the road this weekend…

7 February 2018

Cardiff City make the trip to South East London this Friday evening as they face Millwall at The Den, in front of the Sky Sports cameras (7:45pm kick-off).

Away Days - Ticket News: Millwall vs. Cardiff City

Neil Harris’ side welcome the Bluebirds following the Lions’ 1-0 defeat against Rochdale in their Emirates FA Cup Fourth Round replay on Wednesday evening.

What to expect from the Lions…

Currently sitting 14th in the Sky Bet Championship table, Millwall have had a solid campaign following their promotion from League One last season. Having not lost in the league since New Year’s Day, the Lions are currently on a five-game unbeaten run, with their most recent league victory coming in a 2-0 win away at Reading.

A somewhat surprise name leads the goal-scoring charts for the Lions this season. Midfielder George Saville has managed seven goals in 24 appearances since he made his move from Wolverhampton Wanderers permanent in the summer, following a loan spell in 2015.

Striker Lee Gregory is another standout player in the Millwall ranks with six goals thus far – including netting the second in that win over Reading last weekend. The 29 year-old signed for Millwall in 2014, working his way up from non-league representing the likes of Harrogate Town and FC Halifax Town.

The Lions re-signed 38-year-old club legend Tim Cahill during the Januray window, and the Australian international made a scoring return for the club's U23 side this week.

In the hot seat…

Harris has been with Millwall since hanging up his boots in 2013. Starting out with the U21s, the 40 year-old had a stint as caretaker boss during the 2013/14 season, before being appointed permanently in 2015.

Plying his trade as a striker in his playing days, Harris had a loan spell with the Bluebirds in 2004. Signing from the Lions, he made three appearances and scored once during his spell in the Welsh capital.

Previous meetings…

The Bluebirds have played out two successive stalemates with the Lions at Cardiff City Stadium. Our last meeting at The Den came back in September 2014, when Millwall won 1-0 courtesy of Dan Shittu's goal.

Prior to that, City were unbeaten in eight games against Millwall, stretching back to 2005.

City’s last win over Friday’s opponents came at Cardiff City Stadium in 2012, as an 8th minute Rudy Gestede strike was enough to secure the three points.

The Bluebirds did claim the double in that season too, two goals in two minutes courtesy of Peter Whittingham and Craig Noone saw City triumph on that occasion.

Club connections…

Current Bluebird Liam Feeney had a three-year spell with the Lions between 2011 and 2014, scoring five goals in 73 appearances.

As mentioned, Neil Harris also represented both clubs along with players including Darren Purse, Scott Malone, David Forde and Andy Keogh.

Match Report: Millwall 1-1 Cardiff City

9 February 2018

Cardiff City drew 1-1 with Millwall at the New Den on Friday, 9th February 201

Neil Warnock made two changes to the side that defeated Leeds United last time out, with Joe Bennett and Nathaniel Mendez-Laing replacing Armand Traoré & Yanic Wildschut.

The Bluebirds began strongly, with Canadian winger Junior Hoilett pulling the strings from the opening minute. Holiett was cynically fouled inside 90 seconds, with Lions full-back Mahlon Romeo being shown a yellow card. The battle between these two continued almost instantly.

It was that man Hoilett again causing problems, and he drove through the middle of the park after robbing Romeo of the ball. That hesitation from the Antigua and Barbuda defender gave Hoilett time to run forward and shoot - and he made no mistake from 20-yards, firing a low right footed shot under the arms of Jordan Archer to give Cardiff City a one-goal advantage after just four minutes.

The home side grew into the match as the half went on and hit the woodwork after 23 minutes. Steve Morison timing his jump perfectly to control Ben Marshall’s cross, before firing a left footed volley towards goal - with the ball cannoning to safety off the crossbar. Morison, a key man in the Millwall attack throughout the match, had two further shots in the following moments but Neil Etheridge was on hand to save on both occasions.

Morison’s strike partner Lee Gregory then struck a low effort towards goal from 30-yards on 39 minutes, but it drifted just wide. This was a sign of things to come for Neil Harris’ side as Gregory levelled the match one minute later. The former Halifax Town forward ran onto a low cross from Jed Wallace to power a shot beyond Etheridge.

Cardiff City captain Sean Morrison made a crucial interception on the stroke of half-time, back-heeling to safety from underneath his own crossbar to ensure the game was level at the break.

The Bluebirds had the first real opportunities in the second half with Gary Madine's shot blocked on 52 minutes, before Marko Grujić fired the rebound wide. 

Philippines international Etheridge was called into action soon after, superbly reacting to Ben Marshall's shot despite the deflection off Manga to tip the ball around the post. He continued a strong showing when Millwall winger Wallace found space on the edge of the box to fire at goal, but our No.25 did excellently to save the initial shot and gather the follow up.

The Bluebirds thought they had taken the lead for the second time on 83 minutes as Sol Bamba acrobatically volleyed home, only for referee Keith Stroud to pull the game back for a Cardiff City free kick after initially playing the advantage. Hoilett stepped up to take the set piece from the edge of the area, the ball hitting the wall before Callum Paterson headed over.

Scottish international Paterson went close again with just three minutes left on the clock, only for George Saville to clear his header off the line. He was again involved in the final talking points of the match, firing over with his left foot after reacting to a mistimed back pass on 90+3 minutes before having a shot cleared by the hand of a Millwall player just seconds later. It was a tough match, with plenty of talking points. The Bluebirds eventually forced to settle for a draw.
