over on the forum we’ve been discussing who will play against Millwall in the Carabao Cup on Tuesday…
do we want a cup run? as fans I suspect we do, Slaviša may want to concentrate on the league however we all know that winning games brings confidence.
So will we go ‘full strength’ against a Millwall team who are having a tough time in the Championship but will be looking for revenge against last seasons result, or play the ‘2nd string’ or even give some of the youngsters a game?
I think it’ll be mainly the 2nd string players unless Tom and Tim are fit enough and need to gain some ‘match fitness’, so assuming those two aren’t quite ready here’s my selection…
I’m assuming that Kebano is fit enough to play

We travel the short tip across the river to the New Den for our next game in the Carabao Cup
If Tuesday nights game is half as good as last season then we’re in for a treat, last season we really enjoyed our trip to Millwall’s ground, what an atmosphere the Lions supporters generated! and what a result for us!
It’ll be interesting to see how many ‘first team’ players Slaviša will start against Millwall, will Tim Ream and Tom Cairney get any game time in their aim to get back to match fitness?
Millwall are having a bit of a tough time at the moment and I’m sure they want to get some sort of revenge for last season?, so this game could be a cracker!

Yet another London derby, this time we travel south of the river to Championship “new boys” Millwall
21 games unbeaten, what a phenomenal run! The draw with Brentford felt like a defeat? …and with Cardiff winning they’ve leap-frogged us into 2nd place however we’re sure of a play-off place. Congratulations to Wolves, our draw gave them automatic promotion.
The Millwall game was always going to be the toughest of our run-in? now that they’ve got a play-off place they’ll want to keep their impressive run of 17 unbeaten going, I’m sure Slaviša and the lards will be working hard to upset them.
The race for the top six, at least places 5 & 6 is getting interesting with Middlesborough, Millwall (currently 5th & 6th) and Derby (1 game in hand against Cardiff), Preston NE and Sheffield Utd hard on their heals any of these could be in the top 6 after Saturday’s games.
