Nottingham Forest vs. Millwall Match Preview

March 6, 2020

Written by:

 

It's a Friday evening game for Gary Rowett's Millwall this week as the side from SE16 make the long trip up to the Nottinham to face high-flying Nottingham Forest.

 

There are only a handful of games left and although the away side have a chance of getting back within touching distance of the play-offs with a win at the City Ground, Nottingham Forest have their sights slightly higher, as victory for the Tricky Trees will see them go level on points with Fulham in third and only five points behind second placed Leeds United.  Whatever the result, both sides need to bounce back from a poor run which has seen the two only win one game in their previous five.

 

Surprisingly, the league head-to-heads actually swing in Millwall's favour, with 23 wins to Nottingham Forest's 19 and the points shared on 21 occasions.

 

 

 

 

Haven't we met before?...

 

Nottingham Forest 0-1 Millwall, Saturday 31st January 2015 – It was a late second half strike from forward Ricardo Fuller which gave Ian Holloway's men the three points in this clash, a result which also saw Millwall record their first win in nine games.  The result left Millwall in 22nd place and only two points away from Bright & Hove Albion, whilst Stuart Pearce's Forest remained in 12th place on 34 points.

 

 

TEAM NEWS

 

Samba Sow is the noticeable absentee from Forest's line-up, and the Tricky Trees will also be without Tiago Silva and Nuno Da Costa, who are both out of this one.

 

Millwall are still missing Ben Thompson, Shaun Williams and Ryan Leonard in the Lions' midfield.  Frank Fielding is still recovering from an arm injury.

 

 

 

THE ONE TO WATCH -

JAYSON MOLUMBY

 

The Brighton & Hove Albion loanee has been in fantastic form for Millwall this season and any hopes of the young Irish under-21 international signing on a permanent basis with the Lions were dashed when Molumby signed a contract extension with the Seagulls until the summer of 2023.  An integral part of the midfield who can break up opposition play and provide a great cover for the Millwall defence, Molumby has taken on the engine room duty in the absence of Ryan Leonard and Shaun Williams and has been a key part of the South London side's impressive season.

 

 



PREDICTION: NOTTM FOREST 0-0 MILLWALL

 

Although Millwall have played a number of must win games, and this is another where three points are needed, but unfortunately I think that Forest will be too strong defensively for the Lions.  With that said, the Millwall back-line have performed well in recent weeks, so I can see this continuing and Bialkowski's sheets being clean.  No score draw for me and a point on the road.

 

Come on you Lions.
