Middlesbrough – Millwall Preview

  • Back in 1986, the gates of Middlesbrough’s old ground were locked as the club sat on the brink of liquidation… only to go on and win promotion in the 1986/87 campaign and return from the brink of obscurity. Why is this relevant? Well, new manager Chris Wilder has said he wants his players to tap into the spirit of ‘86, as he looks to turn Boro’s faltering campaign around in search of promotion.
  • Despite the optimism surrounding Middlesbrough at the minute, Wilder must be wary of the fact that he failed to win his opening game in each of his last three managerial roles (D2, L1).
  • However, an improvement on Middlesbrough’s three-game winless run heading into this is expected given they face a Millwall side who have not won here in their last five attempts (MIL: D2, L3).
  • While their draw with the essentially relegated Derby last time out was frustrating for Millwall, they do remain unbeaten in four of their last five league games (W3, D1) and are firmly in the top-six hunt at this stage. A victory here could take the Lions into the play-off places should results elsewhere go their way.
  • The first goal could be crucial in terms of the outcome given how recent encounters with Middlesbrough have played out for Millwall manager Gary Rowett – just one of the last six such games produced goals at both ends (W2, D1, L2). In any case, Millwall themselves might be quietly confident of achieving a positive result here given that only league-leading Bournemouth have lost fewer away league games this season (W2, D4, L2).
  • Players to watch: After scoring as a sub in October, Middlesbrough’s teenage sensation Josh Coburn has since netted in both of his full starts for the club. If it wasn’t for the goals that Millwall’s
  • Jed Wallace contributed to this season, they would be a massive 14 points worse off (G5, A5).
  • Hot stat: There were under 2.5 match goals in eight of Middlesbrough’s last nine Championship matches, and in ten of Millwall’s last 12.
