MATCH FACTS
  • Millwall's last victory over Cardiff City came all the way back in February 2005
  • The Lions haven't won in eight league games
  • City are aiming to pick up their first win on the road in the Championship this season
  • Russell Slade currently has a 100% win record from his first two matches in charge
  • Peter Whittingham and Federico Macheda both scored against Forest and Ipswich

KEY OPPOSITION PLAYER: Nicky Bailey
Midfield dynamo Bailey has been a crucial member of the Millwall team since signing from Middlesbrough in summer 2013. Bailey cut his teeth in non-league football with Barnet, before moving into the Football League with the Bees. He left the club to join Southend before being picked up by Charlton Athletic in 2008. Nicky signed for Boro in 2010 for a substantial fee and spent three years with the club before moving on to the New Den. A tough tackling, all action midfielder, Bailey is known for giving his all for the cause.

ONE TO WATCH: Scott McDonald
31-year-old forward McDonald also joined the club from Middlesbrough in 2013, following a three year spell in the North East. The Australian shot into the spotlight with an impressive goal-scoring record in Scotland for Motherwell and Celtic. He has only scored once this season but should be considered a true goal threat should he get an opportunity in the penalty area.
