Lions To Roar To Narrow Win Over 'Boro

Millwall welcome Middlesbrough to The Den on Wednesday as the two face off in the Championship – here is all the key information you need to know about the game ahead of kick-off.

The two sides will come into the game with contrasting emotions, however with a lot still up for grabs for both sides it is set up to a fiery encounter.

Wednesday’s hosts Millwall will be entering the home match full of confidence and with the dreams of finishing in a much-wanted playoff position.

The Lions currently find themselves five points off of sixth place and will be eager to build on their tense 1-0 victory over fellow London side Charlton Athletic on Friday.

It was a nervy affair at The Valley, and it went down to the last 10 minutes of play as Jake Cooper bagged himself what proved to be the winner with only nine minutes left on the clock.

Visitors Middlesbrough find themselves at the opposite end of the table as they battle for the chance to remain a Championship in the next campaign.

Neil Warnock’s men currently sit in 22nd spot but will understand the importance of the next three points they have on offer.

The Boro struggled in their last outing against Queens Park Rangers as they fell to another defeat in a slim 1-0 game.

Jordan Hugill’s goal in the first half was enough to see his side through the match and leave with the points.

With both sides playing for such high stakes I can see it being a game of few chances.

Middlesbrough might opt for a playstyle which allows the hosts to control possession which will play into Millwall’s game.

With Warnock’s men already struggling to score goals this term, I can't see a way for them to win on the road against a side pushing for a playoff finish.
