Posh v Millwall: Match Preview

2 October 2015

Posh host Millwall in Sky Bet League One action on Saturday (3pm).

Peterborough United entertain Millwall at the ABAX Stadium on Saturday afternoon in Sky Bet League One action and the visitors will be backed by over 1,000 supporters with the Lions in excellent form on the road.

Posh face a Millwall side who are unbeaten in five League One away game this season. The Lions have picked up 11 of their 14 points on the road. They beat Posh 1-0 in the first round of the Johnstone's Paint Trophy at the New Den.

Manager Graham Westley is looking for his side to bounce back after a 3-2 defeat against high-flying Bury at the ABAX Stadium on Tuesday evening.

'It won’t be easy as Millwall are a good side. I watched them recently at Port Vale and they were very impressive on the night. They mix their game up well. They have some good footballers, but they are not afraid to hit the ball long and into the channels.


'It’s another tough test for us, but it’s not about Millwall, it’s about how we play. My players know they are at a good club surrounded by ambitious people. It’s a club that’s ‘been there and done it’ recently. My players are in a good frame of mind and we will be intent tomorrow on playing good football, scoring goals and entertaining and exciting our fans,' Westley said.


Posh are without the services of midfielder Jermaine Anderson who is serving the final match of a three game ban while Erhun Oztumer is also unavailable after he was dismissed for a late tackle in the defeat to the Shakers.


Jack Baldwin (knee), Joe Gormley (knee) and Kgosi Ntlhe (toe) are all ruled out while Harry Beautyman is nearing full fitness after a spell on the sidelines with a thigh injury.


Millwall boss Neil Harris commented: ‘It’s certainly a game that with our momentum and confidence, and the way we’re playing, we’re looking forward to,” the 38-year-old said. ‘We’ll have a good following, we have a great following for all our games, but this one’s slightly more southern. It will be a challenge for sure – there’s not a lot between teams at this level.

'I imagine it will be a tight, competitive game. Harris, the club's all-time record goalscorer, added: “Graham Westley will be hoping for a reaction from his squad and the fan base so we know it’s going to be roll your sleeves up time and we’re prepared for that. We’ve got a good squad and a structure that’s working for us at the moment. On the back of some good results confidence is high and hopefully we can take that into this game.'


Millwall boss Neil Harris has no fresh injury concerns ahead of the trip to the ABAX. He could still make changes following the 2-2 draw at Wigan that saw the Latics equalise in the final minute with the likes of striker Steve Morison pushing for a return to the starting line-up.

Defender Shaun Cummings is also in contention to come back into the side having recovered from a hamstring injury earlier in the week.

Paris Cowan-Hall is absent due to his own hamstring niggle while Shaun Williams will be treading carefully as the midfielder is one yellow card away from a one-match suspension.
