Millwall vs Owls – Match Preview

The Owls are on the road again on a cold Tuesday night where they will face Millwall at The Den, where Steve Bruce takes charge of his third Wednesday game.

The Owls are on the back of a goalless draw to Reading on Saturday, whereas Millwall are on the back of 1-0 loss away to Swansea. However, the Owls are still pushing forward with 7 clean sheets in just 11 games, two out of two under Bruce.

Bruce was impressed with the back line in both games.

During Monday lunch-times pre match press conference Bruce didn’t hide the fact that Millwall has a lot to give their opponents, saying this: “Millwall will ask questions of you, they are a handful, fighting for their lives and it won’t be easy. It’s a totally different challenge. If you don’t roll up your sleeves you will get found out.

“But we’ll get back out on the training pitch, keep working hard, look to the next game and hopefully we will take our chances tomorrow.”

An update on the team from Bruce indicated that Tom Lees is very unlikely to be involved in tomorrows clash, and Thorniley will remain in the starting 11, “Jordan Thorniley was fantastic on Saturday and from the reports I’ve seen, he’s been unfortunate not to have featured more”, said the boss.

Josh Onomah will remain sidelined with another hamstring strain, which he suffered at the end of Ipswich Town last week, his first game back after recovering from the same injury on the other leg.

Meanwhile, Millwall are said to be without forward Tom Bradshaw, Tom Elliot is looking to find a way back into Harris’ Millwall team, who currently sit 20th in the Championship table.
