Millwall v Norwich predicted lineups and match preview

The Den, Millwall

Millwall welcome Norwich to The Den on Saturday as they look for their first win in five games.

To be played on Saturday 7th March 2015 at 15:00. Venue: The New Den, London

Odds: Millwall 7/2, Draw 13/5, Norwich 4/5

The Lions are enduring a difficult run that has seen them lose their last three games in a row, as they struggle to stave off relegation.

They come up against Norwich who saw their six-game unbeaten run come to an end against relegation threatened Wigan on Wednesday night, seeing the Latics go above Millwall on goal difference.

The Canaries will have to record their first victory at The Den since 19th November 2003 if they are to close the gap on the top two, whilst losing could see them out of the top six come Saturday night.

Alex Neil, February's Manager of the Month, will be without in-from striker Lewis Grabban, who has undergone surgery on an ankle injury, and Alexander Tettey, who is serving his second game of a two-match ban.

Wes Hoolahan could be recalled to the starting eleven after beginning Wednesday night's defeat on the bench, replacing Gary Hooper at half time. Cameron Jerome could lead the line alone on Saturday if Neil opts to bring Hoolahan back into the squad, reverting to the 4-2-3-1 formation he has used throughout his tenure.

Holloway has no fresh injury worries from the midweek fixture meaning he could field the same eleven that started against Middlesbrough, but he is without six long-term absentees.

“t's really tight at the top end of the table. We would have liked to have won on Wednesday obviously, but there's still plenty of time. Millwall be a really difficult test.
