Millwall Hoping to Claim Playoff Position

Alex Dibden previews Millwall as they travel to Rochdale on Tuesday, with both sides searching for three points on their push for promotion. Kick-Off 7:45pm.

Sitting just one point outside of the playoff positions, Millwall face Rochdale for only the 12th time in their history.

After drawing at home to Bury on Saturday, Millwall come in to Tuesday’s game having dropped to seventh, a point off Southend Utd in the play-off places.

The Lions were set to play The Dale on 18th February, but the match was postponed after Millwall progressed in the FA Cup.

Promotion Push

The pressure is on for Millwall, with Rochdale also chasing promotion, sitting six points behind the Lions in 10th, with two games in hand. Three points for either team could prove crucial come the end of the season.

In the return fixture earlier this season, Millwall faced heartbreak at home, after Ian Henderson’s injury time penalty gave Rochdale the three points. The Lions will be travelling to Greater Manchester with revenge on their minds.

Recent Form

Millwall’s recent form compared to Rochdale’s hints that the Lions should be favourites for the three points. The Dale have only won one of their last five, with Millwall only losing one, although are yet to claim a win since the 6-0 drubbing against Spurs.
