PREVIEW: Millwall v Hull City

If the Tigers cannot sort their fragile confidence out when falling behind in games, or their irritating habit of conceding late in matches - yes, that will be 8 goals in the last nine games from the 83rd minute onwards for the record - then, rightly, City can consider themselves as one of the Championship clubs embroiled in a relegation scrap. Frankly, the negligence shown by those supposedly at the top of this club, is absolutely scandalous - and unequivocally the root cause of this rotten mess.

The Tigers enter the Lions den

Manager Leonid Slutsky is desperately seeking a win to boost an ailing season, but City's record at Millwall is abysmal with just two wins in 20 previous visits. There will be no Seb Larsson in the midfield, as the Swedish international serves a one match ban. However, Fraizer Campbell returns from his own suspension to boost striking options for Slutsky. Midfielder Evandro once again will be added to the squad after a lengthy injury lay-off.

Millwall manager Neill Harris is watching his side struggle for form, as the Lions attempt to arrest a four game winless run for the second time this season. The hosts are hampered by injuries to Byron Webster and Shaun Williams, while Tom Elliott will need to be assessed. Jed Wallace continues serving a three game ban for the Tigers' visit.
