Millwall Preview - Home, September 27

Millwall Preview - Home, September 27

WATFORD ARE handed an immediate chance to resurrect their home form this Tuesday as Millwall visit the Vic' fresh from 5-0 and 3-0 defeats against Wolves and Derby respectively.

Indeed, it's been a while since the Lions even hit the back of the net; their last league strikes coming in a 2-2 draw with Peterborough at the New Den on August 17.


Much like the 'Orns, Kenny Jackett's side suffered the summer loss of their star man with Premier League new-boys Norwich swooping for Welsh striker Steve Morison.

Coming in to replace Morison is former Watford hitman, Darius Henderson who left Sheffield United on a free transfer following three largely stop-start years at Bramall Lane. Hampered by injury and the constant change of management, Henderson managed 20 goals from 72 goals.

Lions legend Neil Harris also departed over the summer too, joining boyhood club Southend on a free transfer. Harris' replacement is Hull City striker Jay Simpson, currently back on-loan in south London after a previous spell with the club when he was at Arsenal. The nippy striker has failed to settle in Hull and his most productive spell in football with Queens Park Rangers two seasons ago.

Another former Hornet to arrive at the New Den is left-back Jordan Stewart who arrived from Greek outfit Skoda Xanthi, who's other notable ex-players include Nathan Ellington. Stewart also had a spell with the Blades, like Henderson, but joined Jackett's troops on a free signing a one-year deal. Stewart has since appeared once.

Henderson and Stewart are hardly the only ex-'Orns plying the trade at Millwall nowadays with Hameuer Bouazza, Darren Ward and Jack Smith all currently on the books.

The goalless draw against fierce rivals West Ham the weekend before last was an example of the Lions fighting spirit and if Jackett's outfit can collect a few more results like that then they should be on course for another solid season.

Probable Teams:

Watford:
Loach; Doyley, Mariappa, Taylor, Dickinson; Yeates, Eustace (c), Hogg, Forsyth; Garner and Sordell.

Millwall: Forde; Dunne, Robinson (c), Ward, Stewart; Feeney, Trotter, Abdou, Bouazza; Simpson and N'Guessan.

Match Officials: (R) Mr B Malone; (AR's) Mr B Holderness & Mr W Norcott; (4th) Mr A Rathbone.

Definitely a hard game this; they might not be scoring much lately but they're by no means a poor side. COYHs
